This post is sort of a Part 2, to my previous Fuji X-T3 footage post I did not that long ago (you can check it out here in case you didn’t), and I wanted to include a bit of a mixture between Fujifilm produced short films and end-user/filmmaker generated footage that was shot with their own XT3 cameras. This isn’t to say one is better than the other, but it brings a better perspective, as they show the camera in different environments.
I recently came across an incredibly powerful short piece by Nick Rice Film, which not only shows off the XT3 in a challenging filming environment such a foggy forest, where there is tons of detail in the foliage, deep, dark shadows and subtle details in the trees and surroundings. All these things can really stress the sensor and codec of any camera. However, I think the XT3 really shines here.
I must add though, that the message of the actual piece is just as important as the footage. As someone who can relate to the message on a personal level, this piece hits close to home. Depression is rarely discussed openly, it’s often misunderstood and ignored. It mustn’t be.
- “Depression” by Nick Rice Film:
This video was very hard for me to make. It is very different than anything I have ever posted on here, but I have been wanting to make and post this for a very long time. Depression is something that I struggle with everyday, some days are better, some days are worse. If you know someone who is struggling with this, or see someone, reach out to them. Even if they aren’t struggling with it; I’m sure that just by you reaching out to them and saying something nice or kind, it will improve their day.
On another note, this camera is pretty fantastic! I just switched everything over from Canon and could not be happier that I did!

Another really nice short piece shot on the Fuji X-T3 is “A Day in Porto” by Golpe Films. It’s a really well shot docu-style piece that shows-off the impressive dynamic range and pleasing colours the Fuji XT3 is capable of. Check it out below.

So, what do you guys think? Have you pre-ordered the XT3 yet, are you thinking about it? Already own one? Not getting one? Hopefully, the footage in this post have given you some idea of what this camera can do. I have not shot with it yet, and really want to… just seeing the potential it has, I really think it can give the GH5 and even the GH5s a run for its money.
