GEAR TALK: Fujifilm X-T3 Review – Shooting a Short Film in 4K DCI Anamorphic

This is field study review of how the Fujifilm X-T3 handled shooting in 4K DCI anamorphic for the short film ‘Cup of Kindness’.

I’ve been doing the filmmaker thing for awhile now, and I’ve shot on most every cinema camera out there: RED, Arri, Sony, Panasonic, Blackmagic, you name it. But sometimes you need something smaller, like when you’re stealing shots for a personal project and don’t want to attract attention. Or when the big boys are just overkill. So I’ve been playing with mirrorless camera options from various companies for a few years to fill that need. There’s some great mirrorless camera options, but none that have really gotten me excited. Until now, with the Fujifilm X-T3.

I watched a lot of reviews of the Fujifilm X-T3 before deciding to spend my own money on it, and of course I viewed Fuji’s official big budget cinema demo film shot on the X-T3. Which looked pretty great. The camera’s specs sure looked great, too- 4K DCI 10bit 4:2:0 video internally, with HDMI recorders giving you 4:2:2 and up to 60p (60p at UHD, not DCI).

I have a passion for motion picture; which in that is the magic of make believe. New technologies that change the way we acquire content is what excites me. I enjoy cooking and cycling outside of work =)
