Fuji X-T3 specs - forum - 09-04-2018
RE: Fuji X-T3 specs - JJ_SO - 09-04-2018
Number of storable pictures: approx. 390 pictures (in normal mode)"
I think, that number is rather battery capacity after CIPA?
And still the "old" X-T2 battery - but 3 of them should last 1200 shots? In "normal mode". "Boost" mode is a differents story, though
But if they really managed to make the AF more lowlight sensitive (necessary, as all Fuji's stop the lens down to working apertures, at least in AF-C) and spread PD -AF over the full sensor instead only the square in the middle - kudos.
Will not buy one as the function buttons and dials are just the same like before.

The 3.7m dots viewfinder seems nice.

They appear to be very good specs, but I think I'll be avoiding the X-T line until they stick an IBIS system in there. My relatively new X-T1 (got it new at clearance prices for less than $450 USD last year) will last me until I can get a good deal on a X-H1 body.

Specs always look nice on Fuji cameras. What's not in the specs is the weird, partly triple redundant concept of usage. On one side. On the other side: No user settings to save (except some kind of JPG treatment, a tiny bit more sharpness and less contrast, but more saturation of red tones - that's what Fuji dares to call "user settings", these morons ).
For each situation loads of preparations and still - although tons of buttons and dials aboard - some functions remain in the dark corners of the outer ring of Fuji's galaxis. A quick menu which wastes lots of space for nothing and shortens film simulations by one or two letters. Difference between "NH" and "NS"? A colour LCD and white and grey quick menu.... my my. Advanced filter settings in "drive mode", formatting cards in "user settings". So far no possibility to generate a file folder, not to mention automatically when stacking or bracketing. But stacking then is rather cool done. No manual focus override in AF-C. All these things are not in the specs. And also not addressed by Fuji, partly for years.
Now, what good is these 30fps if only with electronic shutter - which has rolling shutter, but no really short times to read out?

In a nut shell what is substaintially better about the x-t3 over the x-t2 ?

- Autofocus, with phase detection on the whole sensor. Also more sensitive in low light (-3 EV vs -1 EV).
- More frames per second (up to 30 with some constraints).
- Better EVF with no blackouts during "Sports" mode.
- Better video capabilities.
- A BSI sensor should have better high ISO performance, but that's in theory: we don't know who built that sensor. AFAIK, Sony has never released a 26 MP sensor.
So, the improvements are mainly on the electronics side of things, while there is little to no change on the body and dials/buttons. The jury is still out on that new sensor: we simply know nothing about it.

I can just repeat:
"Now, what good are these 30fps if only with electronic shutter - which has rolling shutter, but no really short times to read out?"
In the beginning I had some unrelaistic hopes for electronic shutter with shutter "speed"s of 1/32.000, faster than most flashes, but it's only an "equivalent" of a real shutter speed. A fake and simulated low energy output to avoid using an ND filter with fast lenses. Fuji still doesn't go lower than ISO 160. I see it more as an additional video mode with roughly 1.9 × crop (compared to FF). But the cool thing will be to control a bigger "field of interest" in the finder and sue a smaller "field of actual frame size" to shoots sports. I think that's a neat feature, this sport mode. And I believe some people will wonder about the capabilities of electronic shutter in fast speed shooting
