Fujifilm X-E3 black + 16mm f/2.8 WR black kit
Mirrorless Digital Camera Kit
A stylish and versatile rangefinder mirrorless digital camera, the X-E3 from Fujifilm features an updated sensor and processor inside a familiar body. It uses a 24.3MP APS-C X-Trans CMOS III sensor that has omitted an optical low-pass filter, and an X-Processor Pro image processor to capture sharp, high-resolution images. In comparison to conventional pixel patterns, the X-Trans design more closely mimics the organic nature of film in order to produce nuanced colours and smooth tonal transitions, while also reducing moiré and aliasing.
Together this impressive sensor and processor combination also provides a continuous shooting rate up to 14 fps, an extended sensitivity range to ISO 51200, and the ability to record UHD 4K/30 video or Full HD 1080p/60 video. When recording images or video, Film Simulation modes can be used to creatively enhance your footage. Video can also be output via HDMI to an external recorder or monitor, and a mic jack is featured for working with an external microphone.
Benefitting these features, optimised continuous autofocus performance provides improved subject tracking and focusing accuracy. Using both contrast- and phase-detection methods, the hybrid autofocus system features 91 total points, which can be divided into 325 total areas. Approximately 50% side-to-side and 75% top-to-bottom of the frame is covered by phase-detection points. A dedicated Focus Lever provides faster, more intuitive control over selecting specific focus points while shooting.
The camera is finished with the same classic physical design of its predecessor, with physical shutter speed and exposure compensation dials. This physical exposure compensation dial now features a C position to allow an expanded compensation range when working with the control dials. Compose your images using the high-resolution 2.36m-dot electronic viewfinder or 3.0" 1.04m-dot rear touchscreen LCD that also offers focus point selection and menu navigation. Built-in WiFi with Bluetooth connectivity is also included for low-power image transferring and remote camera control from a linked mobile device.
The X-E3 is paired up with the XF 8-16mm f/2.8 R LM WR Lens from Fujifilm. With four aspherical and six ED lens elements, including three super ED elements that specifically target lateral chromatic aberration, this lens offers exceptional control over fringing. A Nano-GI coating on the front two lens elements helps reduce ghosting and flare. Also in the lens is a field curvature correction element that can adjust position depending on the zoom. This element helps retain sharpness and reduces optical distortion that is normally found in ultra-wide angle lenses. Autofocus is powered by an internal linear motor that provides quick, quiet, and accurate focus. The lens is also weather sealed at 11 points and can withstand temperatures as cold as 14°F for use in adverse conditions.
