Wow: Fuji X-T3 has 10bit 4:2:0 4K 60P 400Mbit H.265

We did not see this coming.

Here are some relevant specifications:

  • New 26MP sensor (BSI)
  • 4K 60FPS 4:2:0 interal (and 4:2:2 external)
  • No crop except in 50/60FPS where the crop becomes a tolerable 1.18 times
  • $1500
  • F-Log
  • BT.2020 colour and Hybrid LOG Gamma will come as a future free firmware update
  • 17ms rolling shutter
  • Film simulation in 10bit
  • New vertical battery grip

Nikon Z6 and Z7

We expect the Z7 image quality to be similar but slightly better than that of the D850.

Here are some of the relevant details about the Z6 and Z7:

  • Both do 4K at 30/25/24P and 144Mbps (H.264)
  • 10 bit / N-Log / 422 is only on HDMI out (boo!)
  • Focus peaking, zebras
  • IBIS
  • Questionable battery life (we need some good tests on this)
  • $3400 for the Z7 and $2000 for the Z6
