Thanks Fuji, great camera, but FF is the real game. Let's see what Panasonic brings.

Are you sure? Fuji's next medium format camera will be announced soon. 😉

It will be too thin for video but the next one might not be, so if I buy the XT3 I won't be getting any extra Fuji mount lenses. Apparently you can use most FF ones on their medium format mount and this camera might just be under $3500. Might cheap out on a G90 for video to save up for the Fuji MF for photos, as it has the viewfinder in the right place, on the left.

Why do cameras have viewfinders in the middle still? Is it purely for lefties? I know I am not the only one with a nose that protrudes out more than the central viewfinders.

Medium format has too many constraints, lenses get too big, and video specs are poor as of now. In the future, we will see.

Have you seen the fuji lens line up? FF makes little difference when you have such fast primes.

When Fuji makes a sensor with as good DR as D850 sensor for stills (DR mainly) they can call me :)

According to B&H, it has 2K up to 60p. That’s a cool feature. Any word on the bitrates?

[DCI 4K (4096 x 2160) ]  59.94p/50p/29.97p/25p/24p/23.98p 400Mbps/200Mbps/100Mbps 59.94p/50p: up to approx. 20min. 29.97p/25p/24p/23.98p: up to approx. 30min

Recording movies in 400Mbps can be done with DCI4K/4K 29.97p/25p/24p/23.98p.

DCI4K 59.94p/50p is not available when H.264 is selected.

400mbps in 4k60 in All-I and Long GOP in H.265 (could be a mistake, because 400mbps Long GOP in H.265 is VERY high),  200bps or 100 mbps in 4k30 and below (10 bit 4:2:0 in H.265 and 8 bit 4:2:0 in  H.264). DPreview have a full table on https://www.dpreview.com/reviews/fujifilm-x-t3-first-impressions-review/2

If this camera had IBIS, would be shut up and take my money. Waiting for the real world reviews (as other cameras), but looks like a shot out of the park by Fuji. Amazing.

According to the press release 4K60 is maxed at 200Mbps.

This is from Slashcam, it explains everything pretty well:

4K 24p ProRes HQ = 754Mbps
4K 24p ProRes = 503Mbps
4K 24p ProRes LT = 350Mbps

I remember when I had the NX500, it was 70mbps h.265 and it was compared to 120mbps, or so, of h.264. So out of curiosity, if 400Mbps in h.265 wasn’t not compressed, would it be at ProRes HQ levels?

While it's true that H.265 can have the same quality as H.264 with approx. 50% of the bitrate, it's only at low bitrates, like streaming. As far as I remember at such high bitrates like 400Mbps the difference would be almost non existent, but I can't show you any test at the moment that proves this, maybe someone else can.

H.265 is chosen because the ARM processors have 10bit HEVC hardware-accelerated encoding. At high bitrate, encoding efficiency/quality between H.264 and H.265 is identical.

Nice to see that it’s not cropped in 4k24p, as you reported earlier 🤥

As a solo hybrid shooter i've been waiting for an announcement like this. Had the a6000/nx500 for the longest time and rented a7sii's/gh5's/a7rii's as needed (aps-c is the sweet spot for me for most gigs). I've kept minimal native glass for the sole purpose of going all in on a system when the time is right. Now to see what Sony responds with..

Wish more cameras would offer 2K as an option

We need more than just the boring old UHD / 1080 / 720 resolutions in the usual 16:9!

Give us ALL THE OPTIONS in aspect ratios and frame rates
