Everything is under the hood


One thing struck me when I looked at the Fujifilm X-T3 was that it had this striking resemblance to the X-T2. You see, I, like all people, like to feel that a camera has gone from one class to another. In the case of the Fujifilm X-T3 mirrorless APS-C sensor size camera, nothing has changed from the outside. But ooooh how one can be so amazingly wrong.


The X-T3 is a major upgrade

The X-T3 is a major upgrade from the X-T2: especially for video and high pace stills photography. In this video I look at the simple question: Should I go out and buy the latest greatest Fujifilm X-T3 or should I just save some money and get the Fujifilm X-T2 new or used and save a whole lot of money.
