The X-T3 is a high performance premium camera that will become an inseparable partner in your artistic journey. Everything about this camera has been designed to completely satisfy your photography and videography needs in a robust magnesium alloy body that is ready for the toughest of conditions.
X-Trans CMOS 4: The First X Series model featuring a new back-illuminated sensor
The FUJIFILM X-T3 features a newly-developed back-illuminated 'X-Trans CMOS 4' sensor, the fourth generation to feature in the X Series. Boasting a resolution of 26.1MP, the sensor uses a unique color filter array, synonymous to X-Trans CMOS sensors, to control moiré and false color without the use of an optical low-pass filter. Its back-illuminated structure enhances image quality while maintaining a high S/N ratio. Furthermore, ISO160, previously available only as extended ISO, is now part of the normal ISO range, allowing you to achieve incredibly clean, noise free images.
X-Processor 4: The brain that utilizes the full potential of the X-Trans CMOS 4 sensor
The FUJIFILM X-T3 uses the X-Processor 4, an evolved version of X Series’ image processing engine that boasts advanced processing capabilities. The new processor, combined with a new algorithm, enhances the Film Simulation modes, substantially improving the camera’s ability to track moving subjects, boosts AF’s speed and accuracy, and allows for a more diverse range of video functions. It maximizes the full potential of X-Trans CMOS 4 sensor to deliver the highest performance in all aspects in the history of X Series.
Film Simulation modes for a variety of color tones and gradations
The FUJIFILM X-T3 offers 16 Film Simulation modes so that you can match your true photographic intention in a similar way to how photographers used to choose purpose-specific photographic films. This unique philosophy reflects Fujifilm’s heritage and color science know-how, nurtured by over 80 years of film manufacturing.
Large EVF means you’ll never lose sight of your subject
The FUJIFILM X-T3 features a 3.69-million-dot high resolution EVF with a high magnification ratio of 0.75x. The display time lag of just 0.005 seconds and refresh rate of approx. 100fps* ensure smooth display and allows you to precisely identify subject movements and focus positions.
*When using the BOOST mode
Blackout-free high-speed continuous shooting of up to 30 fps with AF/AE tracking
Increased read speed from the sensor and the new high-speed processor have made it possible to have AF/AE-tracking, blackout-free continuous shooting of up to 30 fps** in approx. 16.6M (1.25x crop) mode using the electronic shutter, while maintaining a smooth Live View of 60fps to track your subject. The rolling shutter distortion, a typical issue for electronic shutters, has been halved compared to the previous generation.
** When using the electronic shutter; Up to 11fps when using the mechanical shutter
Sports finder mode for enhanced shooting
The 'Sports finder mode' makes it even easier to capture moving subjects. The new mode marks a cropped area in the viewfinder and shoots at approx. 16.6M (1.25x crop). This is particularly useful for sports and wildlife photography, as you can check the movements of a subject just outside the shooting frame and take advantage of shorter-than-usual blackout time as compared with the mechanical shutter.
Fast and accurate phase detection AF across the frame
The FUJIFILM X-T3’s sensor has increased the phase detection AF area to the entire frame (approx. 100%) with 2.16M phase detection pixels. The low-light AF sensitivity has also been extended from -1EV to -3EV, enabling high-speed AF in even lower light conditions, like a scene lit only with candlelight.
Enhanced AF processing for moving subject
The X-Processor 4’s high processing speed and improved phase detection algorithm means the camera refocuses (AF) and meters (AE) about 1.5 times more frequently than current models to improve autofocus even when shooting sports involving fast and erratic movements across the frame.
Substantially improved performance with face- and eye-detection AF
The performance of face-detection AF on a moving person has been doubled. The eye-detection AF works in AF-C mode, maintaining accurate focus-tracking with portraits. It focuses precisely when shooting people from the front or side.
4K Movie Recording
4K/60P 10bit HDMI output and internal SD card recording
The FUJIFILM X-T3 features 4K/60P 4:2:2 10bit HDMI output and 4K/60P 4:2:0 10bit internal SD card recording. Supported video formats include the widely-used H.264/MPEG-4 AVC as well as H.265/HEVC for greater data compression. This enables 200Mbps bitrate recording when shooting 4K/60P 4:2:0 10bit. Video compression options available are ALL-Intra* and Long GOP. When using ALL-Intra*, video is recorded at 400Mbps**.
Enhanced ISO performance - A new noise reduction process and new '4K interframe NR' function have reduced noise at ISO12800 by the equivalent of approx. 2 stops. The NR process has a greater level of noise-identifying accuracy for appropriate denoising performance. The 4K interframe NR function uses differential data between adjacent frames to reduce noise even further.
* Available at 4K/29.97P, 25P, 24P, 23.98P, and FHD/59.94P, 50P, 29.97P, 25P, 24P, 23.98P when H.265/HEVC is selected. Not compatible with H.264.
** Available at 4K/29.97P, 25P, 24P or 23.98P
Greater freedom of gradations with 10bit color depth
The FUJIFILM X-T3’s 10bit color depth has 64 times the color information versus an 8bit depth system. With the wide dynamic range of 400% (approx. 12 stops), it enables gradation-rich video recording when applying 'ETERNA', characterized by subdued color and rich shadow tones, or 'F-Log,' which is a gamma curve option with an even wider dynamic range.
Simultaneous output of 4K HDMI and internal SD card recording
The FUJIFILM X-T3 supports 4K/60P 4:2:2 10bit HDMI output and 4K/60P 4:2:0 10bit internal SD card recording simultaneously. This allows you to take backup video or conduct 4K/60P internal SD card recording while monitoring 4K/60P footage. Also, the sensor’s read speed is about 1.5 times faster than current models, which enables fast 17msec reading of 4K/60P video. The rolling shutter distortion has been reduced for even smoother filming of fast-moving subjects.
MKX cinema lenses for dramatically improving the quality of video footage
Award-winning FUJINON cinema lenses,MKX1855mm T2.9 & MKX50-135mm T2.9, are now also available with the X Mount, offering edge-to-edge sharpness and excellent portability. Cine lenses suppress focus shift while zooming and reduce lens breathing during focusing, something photographic lenses do not. Furthermore, the MKX lenses feature three manual rings for precise adjustments of focus, zoom and aperture, allowing for comfortable functionality and operation.
Terminal with high expandability
A 3.5mm headphone jack is provided on the camera body so that all accessories required for video recording, such as microphone and HDMI devices can be centrally connected to the body for added mobility in videography. Also, the terminal cover is removable, and USB terminal supports USB-Type C (USB3.1 Gen1) specification.
Touchscreen panel tilts in 3 directions
The FUJIFILM X-T3 uses a touchscreen panel with higher contrast, wider viewing angle and better operability than those in previous models to enable intuitive operation.
Improved dials and buttons
The FUJIFILM X-T3 inherits FUJIFILM X-H1’s features such as large top-panel dials / rear-panel buttons and comfortable clicking touch of front and rear command dials.

This camera is great. Much faster autofocus than the previous model X-T2. Face and eye focus is on par with the Sony A73.
Thing I love about Fuji is the color science. I love the colors I get from it. Vivid. Plus I love my 16mm 1.4 prime. That lens I can not get in all my other camera system platforms.
I feel the low light is great for a crop body. You can easily shoot up to 8000 ISO. Yes my Sony A73 has in body stabilization and a higher iso ceiling but this Fuji has 4K at 60 frames and some sick fast prime lens’s to go with it.
I could go back and forth between all the cameras with their advantages. Though a lot will be personally preference. This Fuji camera is a great build.
First a little background. I’m a hobbyist photographer who has been doing hobbyist photography for about 25 years since I was in my teens. My first interaction with cameras was my father’s Asahi Pentax 35mm film camera which he bought in England back in the 60s. By the time I started to use that camera, it was older than I was!
In my early 20s, I decided to step up the game and bought a Panasonic fixed lens “SLR look” camera. That was 1” sensor if I’m not mistaken. I took some pretty decent photos with that digital handheld camera.
Back in 2013, I told myself that I’d upgrade once more and take a stab at the DSLRs. So I invested in a Canon Rebel T3i which came with the kit lens, 18-55mm. I also added a 70-300mm telephoto zoom lens to my arsenal and used this setup for 5 years. I’d shoot anything from my kids at home, to dance concerts to archery events and really maximized the Canon in many ways. I started to shoot in P-mode for about one year and then mostly shoot in Aperture Priority Mode, with some shoots done in Manual Mode. The T3i was a great starter camera.
In 2017, I decided that I wanted to upgrade my camera and this is where things got confused. I looked at full frame cameras in Canon, full frame mirrorless in Sony, Micro 4/3, and APS-C cameras in almost every manufacturer, except Nikon (reason being, if I was upgrading in to a APS-C DSLR, I told myself I’d stick with the Canon). Believe me when I say that I had researched cameras for more than 18 months before deciding to invest in the X-T3. I then narrowed down my search to mirrorless systems. A friend of mines let me use his Olympus OMD-M5 for a few hours. Two things that struck me… How light the mirrorless was compared to my Canon and the ability to see what the photo looks like in the EVF or on the LCD with different ISO, Shutter Speeds and Aperture settings. Looking for the mirrorless, the search then spread to Sony (both full frame and APS-C), micro 4/3 in Panasonic and Olympus and of course Fujifilm.
I eventually ruled out Sony. I felt that the “starter” Full Frames from Sony lacked some of the better features that the other, similarly priced APS-C cameras possessed. Plus, I thought the Sony lenses were too expensive. Micro 4/3 systems were inveigling me but that small sensor capabilities in low light, even with fast lenses was a bit iffy (for me).
Eventually, in early 2018, I settled on either the X-T20 or the X-T2. The first feature that I was drawn to was the retro styling… the full manual adjustments on shutter speed, ISO and exposure. And the manual aperture ring adjustments on equipped lenses. Drool!!!! I was taken back to my teens when I was shooting on my dad’s Pentax and how excited I was to see how my photos would come out when I played around with different settings, not to mention the disappointment I would feel when I saw many over exposed or under exposed photos. For me, shooting on the Canon did not give that experience and while I learnt to navigate the buttons quite well for shooting in Aperture Priority or even Manual, the Pentax experience was always top notch.
The Fujinon lenses also appealed to me. All reviews I read alluded to how sharp images were. And the prices of the lenses, while quite steep, were still cheaper than some of its counterparts in other manufacturers.
I think in early 2018, I eventually settled on the X-T20 as it had many of the features of the X-T2 with the touchscreen. Then came July 2018 and I saw that the price on the X-T2 dropped to $1,099 a mere $200 more than the X-T20. The X-T2 then became the camera of choice. In early September, my decisions were stymied by the launch of the X-H1 as I began to wonder whether Fujifilm were heading in a different direction for IBIS. But I told myself that the lenses would be around for a while and that the X-T2 would be the way to go. Mid-September I was about to buy the X-T2 and while looking at a review of a Fujinon lens on dpreview, I saw a post on the new X-T3. I read all I could about the X-T3 and saw that there were introductory offers available on the X-T3 and many of the Fujinon lenses. Eventually I bought the X-T3 along with the Fujinon XF16-55mmF2.8 R LM WR Lens.
I got the new setup over two days ago. Configured the camera to the way I want it, including back button focus and some customization on the Fn buttons.
This camera is a dream to use. The build quality of the camera is first class and solid. My setup with the 16-55mm lens and the camera is a bit heavy, but that’s a price to pay for quality glass. The camera does indeed feel like the old Pentax and after shooting about 50 pictures, it is so effortless to simply turn a dial or a ring to adjust some aspect of the exposure. No more fiddling with this dial and that button and looking at a LCD screen to see the exposure settings before taking a picture, or half pressing the shutter button to see the same information in the view finder (that’s what I had to do with the Canon).
The X-T3 is heavily customizable. Every setting is easily changed from the intuitive menu. One small complaint is that some of the menu settings are not that self-explanatory or clear so you would need the manual to decipher what a change in that setting does. Maybe in a firmware update Fujifilm could add a little on screen explanation on menu settings so the user can understand the change being made without having to revert to the manual.
Which brings me to firmware. My camera was shipped with revision 1.0 of the firmware. I downloaded the latest firmware from Fuji’s website and followed the instructions to upgrade on the camera. The actual upgrade takes less than 90 seconds. So I would suggest that once you get your camera, perform the firmware update before doing anything else.
The EVF is crystal clear, and to be honest, there’s no difference to me in using this EVF as compared to the pentaprism on the Canon. I found that the transition was seamless. The LCD is fun to use although I have found that sometimes my nose would cause a change of setting, especially a change in AF. So I just disable touchscreen AF.
I tried a 120fps slow motion video capture of my daughter jumping. This is an awesome feature that I know I’ll love at those archery shoots. While the camera touts some impressive video features, only with time will I be able to unlock that potential. And speaking of archery, the 20 fps and 30 fps burst shooting would be great once I put it to the test. I did a few frames at these speeds and the camera was quite fast so this is another feature that I’m excited to use on the archery range.
The AF is spot on fast. What I love about how I have the camera configured is that with back button autofocus I can leave the AF in Manual mode but still have AF-S or AF-C by either touching or holding the AF-L button (which I have configured as “AF-ON”).
I have attached some photos to the review. All but the two photos of the X-T3 alongside the Asahi Pentax were out of camera JPEGs. The X-T3 alongside the Asahi Pentax were taken with my phone to give you an idea of the retro styling and the retro look with the silver and black. The photos show you the background blur you can get – that’s the lens mind you. But Image Quality looks great for out of camera JPEGs. The amount of detail is amazing with this camera and lens. Look at the photo of the lemon and all the imperfections you see on the skin! The picture of the willow was intentionally underexposed as I tried to show just how bad the weather was. And that chicken was on the grill while I was taking the photos. It was about 75% done but still looks delicious. You will see that there is a picture of some ants on an orchid leaf. Well for that picture, I was using AF-C mode. It was a challenge to get a fast moving ant in the focus point but once I did and locked on, the camera kept focus on the ant to the top for a few frames, until it disappeared or I moved.
I’ve only had this camera for a few days but already love the combination of the lens and the camera. I can tell that this would be a great investment. After 18+ months of research and dawdling, I am glad that I took the time to research my options and bite the bullet with this X-T3.
Now that I’ve had the chance to shoot both stills and videos with the Fuji X-T3, I feel like I can give it a proper review.
This review will be a little different than other ones out there. Rather than a nerdy, super deep-dive into the technical specifications of the camera, instead I’m going to seek to answer one question -- a question I’ve gotten DMed quite a lot on Instagram:
Is the X-T3 worth the upgrade?
Hopefully this review helps you with your decision.
Improvements over the Fuji X-T2
I was perfectly happy with my Fuji X-T2, but of course, my friend Wayne had to ruin my contentment by reminding me that the grass is greener on the other side.
He messaged me on Facebook one day and seduced me with words like “back-illuminated X-Trans CMOS IV sensor” and “quad-core X Processor 4.”
I didn’t even know what the hell those things meant, but I knew I had to have them.
As it turns out, the new sensor and processor are responsible for most of the camera’s improvements. Here are some of the key features that convinced me to upgrade to the X-T3:
•Better low-light performance
•Drastically improved eye-autofocus
•Smarter battery grip function
•Fantastic video quality
Let’s dig into these improvements and how they’ve impacted my real-world shooting.
The Fuji X-T3 offers 26 megapixels compared to the X-T2’s 24. For me, it’s practically impossible to tell the difference at a normal crop, but those extra megapixels come in handy if you ever need to heavily crop in post.
*Better Low-light Performance*
So what exactly does a back-illuminated sensor mean for your pictures?
Simply put, it lets the camera gather more light which improves noise performance. While the Fuji X-T2 had a base ISO of 200, the Fuji X-T3’s base ISO is 160. Not a drastic change, but an improvement nonetheless.
Some of the lenses that Fuji makes aren’t the snappiest with autofocus. (I’m looking at you, 56mm and 23mm f/1.4!)
But put those lenses on the X-T3 and the difference is quite noticeable. Overall, I’ve noticed less hunting and sluggishness when shooting with those lenses, especially wide open.
Even better, focus accuracy has improved even when my subject is backlit -- a hugely welcome improvement.
*Drastically Improved Eye-AF*
Perhaps one of the most impressive improvements of the Fuji X-T3 is the eye-autofocus.
Admittedly, this very feature is why I flirted with the Sony a7RIII last year. While the Fuji X-T2 had almost everything I wanted, its eye-AF wasn’t impressive at all. Sony was the first to offer fast and accurate eye-autofocus.
You might be wondering: What’s so special about eye-autofocus?
This feature comes especially in handy when shooting moving subjects. As a portrait and fashion photographer, I’m always asking my subjects to go through a range of motions while I attempt to capture the perfect frame.
Before the X-T3, attempting to keep your subject’s eyes in focus as they move can be difficult. In single-shot mode (AF-S), you have to constantly move the joystick to place the focus point where you want it. In continuous mode (AF-C), sometimes the subject’s eyes wouldn’t be tack sharp.
But the Fuji X-T3’s eye-AF is game-changing. My keeper rate when shooting in this mode is significantly higher. In my opinion, the Fuji X-T3’s eye AF is every bit as good as the Sony a7RIII’s.
*Smarter Battery Grip Function*
I have very little qualms about the Fuji X-T2, but the battery grip for it was a major point of frustration.
When using the battery grip, there were countless times that the camera would shut off when recording videos.
I discovered this is because the battery grip doesn’t automatically “hot swap” batteries when shooting video. So if one of the batteries in the grip dies halfway through a video, that’s the end of your video. This limitation makes the X-T2’s grip completely useless for video purposes.
The Fuji X-T3 grip resolves this issue by automatically switching to the fresh battery, preventing any abrupt cutoffs.
Note: The X-T3 does not require the grip to take advantage of faster shooting speeds like the X-T2 did. The grip only serves to give you more shooting time.
*Fantastic Video Quality*
As if the X-T3 wasn’t already impressive enough, Fuji decided to make it a competitive video camera as well.
Before you scoff and say to yourself, “This section doesn’t apply to me, I’m not a videographer,” hear me out.
Video content is more important than ever. Social media platforms are prioritizing video content over stills and text. I’ve even noticed that more of my client inquiries lately have asked about video. So even if you haven’t incorporated video into your work, it’s something well worth considering.
Along with the ability to shoot 120fps slow-mo at 1080p and 60fps at 4k, the X-T3 also offers the ability to shoot F-log internally, meaning you’re no longer required to connect your camera to an external recorder if you want to shoot flat footage to color grade later.
Of course, if you don’t want to bother with color grading, you can instead choose to any of the built-in film simulations to your videos, including the new Eterna profile which offers beautiful cinematic tones.
So is the X-T3 worth the upgrade?
If you’re coming from the Fuji X-T2, you’ll notice a difference in both performance and quality.
If you’re coming from any X-series camera before the X-T2, you’ll notice a HUGE difference in performance and quality.
Perhaps the better question to ask is “Who might NOT want to upgrade to the X-T3?”
If you shoot still subjects and are not at all interested in video, you probably won’t benefit much from upgrading to the Fuji X-T3.
But even then, at a price point of $1,499 (which is $100 lower than the Fuji X-T2 when it was first released), the X-T3 is an outstanding value no matter what you shoot.
Thanks for reading, and happy shooting!

I'll divide my review into parts or I'll never be able to make it cohesive enough.
The first thing you notice when you take it out of the box is the build quality of the body. It 'feels' solid. The top and bottom plate is all metal. The middle of camera is metal wrapped over by a rubbery texture that makes it great to hold.
Then you notice the lens. As someone who's been using Nikkor DX 35mm 1.8 prime (which is a great lens, tbh), the all metal lens body was a revelation. Yeah, it makes things heavier. But the weight gives it some welcome heft when you handle it. No, Fuji is not the only company that makes metal lenses. But yes, fuji lenses are extremely well made and can go toe to toe with any lens's build quality out there.
This is one of the better looking cameras on market. Obviously, the looks are subjective. But I've yet to come across a reviewer who had bad things to say about the looks of this camera. The dials are 'retro-looking', but actually make things way easier than the mode dials. Again, I am writing from experience. Aperture priority and Shutter priority are easy enough to understand on most cameras. But when you want to control both Aperture and Shutter, while leaving ISO on auto, and when you want to customise ISO too for that one shot, having dedicated dials saves time.
The dials make the entire experience extremely tactile. It 'makes you wanna shoot'.
This is hands down the best kit zoom lens you can get with any camera of any brand. I mean, look it up. Firstly, the lens goes to f2.8 with 18mm. Second, it's all metal with classy optics. While most kit lenses cost around 10k - 25k standalone, this kit lens costs upwards of 45k most of the times.
And the quality of the pictures matches the build. Many photographers have praised this lens, and it's easy to see why. There's little distortion and I didn't find any color fringing. This lens takes you places. Literally.
That said, I plan to purchase a prime soon. Not because I don't like my kit lens (I love it) but prime fits my shooting style better. When I'm not lazily trying to zoom at things while sitting in chair, I find that I make better shots. Also, this lens isn't weather resistant, which is a bit of a downer. But hey, it's still the best kit lens there is.
X-T3 gives you a lot of customisability. The 'Q' button gives you a bunch of quick settings. And you can customise the placement of each of these settings and even swap them out for other things you might find more useful. For even quicker changes, there are dedicated function buttons as well as touch screen gestures, all of which are customisable. I feel customisation is one of those things that differentiate a workhorse from a beginner camera. You can adjust things to make your workflow easier.
Having two memory card slots is awesome. I use one for raws and other for jpegs. That way, I have my raws to process, but if something goes south with my primary card, I still have my backups for jpegs. Thankfully, when I delete a raw, the camera also lets me delete its corresponding jpeg from card 2 automatically (you can turn this off) so both my cards are consistent with each other.
One of the not-so-good things here is placement of playback and delete buttons. Everything is on right side, but these two buttons are all the way on top left corner, making it extremely hard to access. Plus I end up triggering the EVF sensor every time I do that. Thankfully, I was able to assign one of the function buttons to playback, so I don't have to live with Fuji's questionable choices.
Yep, this camera has two. If this is your first mirrorless (as it was for me), know that there is no optical view finder (that little lens on top of camera you use to see things). Instead, it's a small, extremely high resolution OLED screen. That means everything you can do from main touch screen, you can do in EVF. Changing settings, jumping through menus etc. It also means camera shows you how your photos are gonna look. So if you apply a film simulation (like B/W Acros), the live view in EVF reflects that.
The touch screen in this camera is usable, although I find myself never using the touch screen features. I sometimes use joystick to select focus, but mostly keep the focus in center and just lock and recompose.
There's no two ways about this. The battery is not very good on this camera. I mean, it's not abysmal. It got me two days of outdoors with on and off shooting in performance mode, with me turning off my camera when there were long pauses between shots. So if you're thinking of shooting your next vacation with it, no, it won't fail you in middle of day.
That said, the battery is no where near my old Nikon D5300. This is mostly because of that high res EVF that I primarily use. Expect to charge the battery overnight or every two nights when you're shooting and you should be fine. They supply a wall charger too, although the camera lets you charge battery in-body using a USB-C cable.
I got a 16 gb SD card. Put it in slot two as my JPEG backup. Had to purchase a 64 gb high speed card for slot 1 for raws. The raw files of this camera are consistently over 50 mb, so the space fills quickly.
They also gave me a camera bag. It has room enough for everything in box, plus one extra lens when/if you buy one. That said, the bag is not good at all. The top flap doesn't have a chain and is closed only through a hook. The belt on this hook loosens every time you life the bag using top handle. The strap is also not long enough, making me wear this camera pretty awkwardly around my body.
I plan to switch this bag out soon too.
Do you need a 1 lac+ camera to make good photos? No. Great photographers can take better photos on an instax than I can take on my X-T3. However, I'd argue that if you have the money to spend, and find a camera (doesn't have to be this) that ignites your passion and makes you wanna go out and experiment, shoot and enjoy photography, then by all means, get one. You certainly won't regret the purchase.
As always, before buying this camera, do some research. I love this, but it may not be the right one for your needs. Look at Sony's alpha series, Canon's R series and Nikon's Z series. Most importantly, look at the lens selections. When you buy a camera, you're buying into a system. You are not gonna use canon lenses on fuji, so make sure which ever system you wanna get into, has the lenses you need. That said, Fuji has a very good lens selection. The best part is that they don't have any full frame cameras (at all). So they focus pretty hard on their APS-C lens lineup, which has already made it one of the best out there.
Coming from a Panasonic G85, shoot it and watch it seems far easier without any post in between. I don't always shoot video that is worthy of that much effort, sometimes its just my kids messing around.
If you're looking for excellent quality for both video and photo's; and you have the time to do post production this is a fantastic product. I just wish there was a way of shooting high quality usable 10-bit video, that was my main ask of this camera.
Al principio pensé que las Fuji tenían un proceso de revelado digital raro, porque las fotos al momento de editarlas se veían... Peludas. Pero resultó que la forma en la que Adobe interpreta el formato Fuji no es el indicado para un buen flujo de trabajo, entonces si estás leyendo esto busca un programa que se llama Capture One que interpreta las fotos Fuji sin ningún problema.
