When a camera maker takes an existing model name and adds Mark II after it, you know the changes are minor. But when the model number changes you know you are in for a serious uplift, and that certainly seems the case with the Fujifilm X-T3. It is the first Fujifilm X-series mirrorless camera with a backside illuminated sensor (BSI) and it embraces its innovative X-Trans technology. So its photosite layout is in a 6x6 configuration rather than 2x2 to defeat moir and false colours without the need for an image quality-sapping optical low pass filter.

Add the powerful new Processor 4 imaging engine, which is three times faster than current models, and you know the X-T3 is going to be a camera to be reckoned with. Fujifilm says its autofocus is 1.5x faster and significantly more accurate in terms of fast subject tracking, face and eye detection and in low-light situations. Significant advances in the X-T3’s video skills, a body refresh and a higher-resolution electronic viewfinder are other headline features of the new camera. Seemore on page 3
