    My iPhone is pretty good, which may go to confirm that the larger the sensor, the tougher it is to make it respond quickly to camera movement. When the dust has settled it will be interesting to see who has done the best job with FF. Nikon is getting some plaudits, though they have left stabilisation out of the lenses; justified confidence?

    iPhone uses OIS and digital stablisation. There's no IBIS for mobile phone sensors yet.

    The reason why FF sensor IBIS doesn't work well compared to M43 is the mount diameter to sensor size ratio, if you look at FF mount, there isn't much space for the sensor to move around before vignetting. With M43 mount you get plenty of space and image circle for the sensor to move around.

    Another huge plus on this camera. Probably the best 120fps out there outside of an FS700, that isn't including cinema cameras like RED.

    It looks on par with A7III 120p, minimal aliasing. Just wish it's available in 17:9 DCI mode as well.

    If I get it right, the X-T3 has a 1.25 crop in 4k60 + 1.53 frome the Aps-c crop factor, which give a 1.78 crop. Same as the Canon EosR, and not so different than the GH5.

    Crop in 4K60 is 1.18x, the 1.25x crop is the sports finder mode for 30fps stills shooting. Also just FYI, the 120p mode is 1.28x crop.

    Is the video crop factor different from an X-T2 to the X-T3?

    I ask because I got a graphite X-T2 and the battery booster not long ago on the $500 off deal +15% eBay + eBay Bucks deal.

    I like it, I am testing anamorphic taking lens on my anamorphic rig to see how wide I can go.

    I find in video mode I can use the Minolta Rokkor 40mm and my B&H Kowa 2x using the Metabones Minolta Speedbooster.

    MUCH wider than my GH5 EOS Metabones 0.64XL Speedbooster and EOS mount Minolta PG Rokkor 58/1.2 plus B&H Kowa 2x setup.




    Quite different. X-T2 has no crop in all 1080p mode including 120p. 1.18x crop in all 4K framerates.

    X-T3 has no crop in 1080p up to 60fps, then 1.28x crop in 100/120p. (very likely to be supersampled from the crop area, the images are aliasing free). No crop in 4K up to 30fps, then 1.18x in 50/60p.

    Tried the X-T3 at photokina. 

    Not impressed.
    Recorded some footage on my SD card in the new 400mbps intraframe codec. Turned noise reduction, sharpening as well as inter frame noise reduction completely off.
    In both Astia and F-log faces and even textiles look like a paintbrush was applied. Faces look horrible and lifeless and waxy as well.

    Both my GH5 and A7III looked way better and more natural in comparison...
    Well, will wait for the BM Pocket 4K then.

    As discussed before, HEVC smoothing filters SAO and SIS contributed to that waxiness.

    Have y'all seen this?

    "As you know, Fujifilm has announced that by then end of 2018, there will be a firmware update for Fujifilm X-T3, that will add support for video recording in the Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG) and also give the X-T3 the ability to simultaneously output Film Simulation video and F-log footage."


    I knew about there being an upcoming update for exFAT but the simultaneous recording is news to me.

    TBH the exFAT file larger than 4GB should be available at launch. I hope AF especially AF-C/Face detection are being worked on as well.

    Please give us a believable source. You’re not Luke Mason in disguise are you? Back with a vengeance, dropping “knowledge” here citing no one except yourself or, in this case, some obscure Weibo account.

    Ha I'm not that daft prick, are you?


    The Weibo lady is a well respected figure in the Japanese semiconductor industry.

    While that might be true, both are designed to reduce artifacts like banding, blocking, ringing, and both are enabled in x265 by default, so I guess it's nothing to worry about.

    Yes, these two filters are designed to preserve overall image quality at low bitrate, at 200/400Mbps bitrate Fuji implemented, they really should disable those filters to allow more fine detail to come through.

  8. Fuji Kaizen update news:

    1. X-H1 to receive firmware update to offer dual IS (IBIS + lens OIS), which adds 1.5-2 stops of additional stablisation.

    2. X-T3 (and very likely X-H1/X-T2) to receive firmware update to enable file size larger than 4GB when using SD cards formatted as exFAT (64GB+).

    @jonpais we get it, you don’t like Fuji, and love Sony. I love Sony too, their broadcast cameras are awesome, if I still worked in broadcast I wouldn’t want anything else. To be fair, if I had your prior poor experience with Fuji I wouldn’t like them either moving forward. I feel the same way about Panasonic for hybrid cameras (really like their broadcast offerings though).

    In response:

    First, obviously look at both camera bodies. The specs are what I was talking about.

    Second, no one thought Panasonic would go full frame, yet here we are. I agree, Fuji will stay with apsc until smartphones catch up and their medium format might always be a niche product, sorry for being hyperbolic.

    Sensor wise, it’s different than any other Fuji sensor. So either:

    1. Sony completely changed their design

    2. Fuji redid their X-trans color array (although the GFX50 R and S don’t have X-trans and are almost the same as the X-H1, X-T2, etc when it comes to colors and expected performance for noise and ISO)

    3. Samsung made the sensor and Fuji mirrored the specs of the NX1

    4. BSI makes way more of a difference than we (me at least) thought

    5. Canon made the sensor and accidentally sent them to Fuji instead of putting it in the R. (Note this is sarcasm)

    I’ll leave these frame exports here, from the X-T3, NX1 and A73.






    Great pictures!

    You're right about #1, it's a completely new generation of sensor, 3.76um photosite architecture that's also used in the 100MP sensor in GFX100.

    Cropping for 120 doesn't mean it has less processing power then the NX1. NX1's 120fps is not a full sensor readout either; line skipping vs 1:1 cropping, same processing power (if the XT3 is oversampling at all in 120fps, then it is using more processing power. The NX1's 120fps looks like a 1920x1080 readout at BEST).

    Edit: also, adjusted for inflation, the XT3 is cheaper than the NX1 was.

    120P on X-T3 seems to be pixel-binned instead of line-skipped, it's a bit soft but aliasing artifact free.
