As the Fujifilm X-Series matures, small refinements make excellent cameras even more serviceable in the search for amazing photographs.

The Fujifilm X-E3 incorporates a new X-Processor Pro to produce 'outstanding colour reproduction and high resolution' in stills, while also being capable of producing Full HD and 4K video.

The X-E3 is the first X-Series model to feature Bluetooth low energy wireless communication for easy transfer of images from the camera to a smartphone or tablet. And it uses minimal power which is good for both the camera and your phone.

Inside the camera, a 24.3-megapixel APS-C sized X-Trans CMOS III sensor sits alongside a large, phase detection AF area with updated focusing algorithms, claimed to deliver AF speeds of just 0.06 second to lock onto your subject.

The X-E3 also offers 5.0 frames per second Live-View shooting, a quick start-up time of 0.4 second, a shutter time lag of 0.050 second and shooting interval of 0.25 second. This makes the X-E3 incredibly fast and responsive in the hand.

With its newly developed image recognition algorithm, the X-E3 is able to track moving subjects twice as fast and half the size as the previous model.

And like the previous model, the X-E3 remains compact and lightweight. The top plate features two dials – one for shutter speed and the other for exposure compensation. The aluminium-milled dials have a high-quality appearance and are notched for every setting. The exposure compensation dial now has the C position to enable exposure compensation up to ±5 stops in 1/3 steps.

The rear LCD monitor uses a high resolution 1.04M dot, 3.0-inch static touch-screen panel display, the only thing missing being a tilt screen mechanism, but there's a range of shooting and playback modes available, along with touch-screen operation.

The X-E3 can be purchased as a kit complete with a Fujinon XF23mm f2 lens and optional accessories include a leather case (BLCXE3) that allows photographers to change batteries without removing the camera, and a Hand Grip (MHG-XE3) which also allows the battery and memory card to be swapped with the grip in place.
