X-T3 Black + 23mm f/1.4 R
Digital mirrorless camera kit
Designed for videographers and action photographers alike, the Fujifilm X-T3 is a versatile mirrorless camera characterized by its high-speed performance, more-than-capable imaging, and multimedia flexibility. Revolving around a newly developed image sensor and processor, both high-resolution stills and 4K video can be recorded while an apt autofocus system delivers quick and accurate focusing performance. The sensor, a 26.1MP APS-C-format X-Trans CMOS 4, features a back-illuminated design, to promote greater image quality throughout the sensitivity range, along with an expansive 2.16m-point phase-detection autofocus system for quick, precise AF performance and subject tracking. Complementing the imaging and focusing is the X-Processor 4, which uses four CPUs for faster image processing as well as continuous shooting up to 11 fps with a mechanical shutter, 30 fps shooting at a 1.25x crop and electronic shutter, and internal 4K60p 10-bit video recording.
Like previous X-T cameras, the X-T3 retains its classically inspired looks and prominent tactile controls, and adds a new OLED electronic viewfinder design with 3.69m-dot resolution and a high 0.75x magnification. This finder has a high refresh rate of 100 fps for fluid viewing and remains blackout-free while shooting at the top 30 fps shooting rate. Also, a unique Sports Finder Mode can be used, which highlights the 16.6MP crop area in order to give you additional room outside of the frame to recognize moving subjects. Conversely, a rear 3.2" 1.04m-dot LCD monitor can also be used for live view shooting and larger image playback. Additionally, the X-T3 also sports built-in Bluetooth for wireless sharing and remote control, and the magnesium-alloy body is fully weather-sealed for working in trying weather conditions.
Here the X-T3 is kitted with the XF 23mm f/1.4 R lens from Fujifilm. A wide-angle prime lens optimised for use with X-series mirrorless cameras using APS-C sensors where it offers a versatile 35mm equivalent perspective, it is ideal in a variety of shooting situations and favoured for street photography. This is complimented by a fast maximum aperture of f/1.4 that makes it possible to work in difficult lighting conditions and with shallow depth of field for selective focus techniques. A rounded seven-blade diaphragm produces smooth out of focus 'bokeh' areas.
Optically one aspherical element and High Transmittance Electron Beam Coating (HT-EBC) work together to minimise chromatic aberrations and produce images with a high degree of sharpness. This HT-EBC coating also works to protect the front lens surface as well as reduce lens flare and ghosting.
An internal focusing mechanism uses one group of three cemented elements and one aspherical element to lessen the overall weight and maintain the lens' length. This group is driven by a high-torque DC coreless motor for quick, quiet, and precise autofocus performance.
Engraved camera-to-subject and depth of field scales on the barrel benefit manual focus control for setting the hyperfocal distance and pre-focusing techniques. Close-up focusing control permits a minimum focusing distance of 28 cm, or when working in normal position, a minimum focusing distance of 0.6 m is possible.
