Fujifilm X T3 F Log High Contrast ProRes Ninja Flame – RW test

A VERY short Fujifilm XT-3 real-world contrast test.

I shot a few contrast-rich scenes with contrast ratios exceeding 10 stops in some occasions, to test the F-Log and sensor performance.

Very harsh, very bright directional light at 12:00 noon.

Exposed-to-the-right, trying to balance between retaining shadow detail and not blowing out the HLs too much.

Lens: Fuji 50mm F2 + B&W Polarizer filter
Recorded in Prores-HQ 10 bit 4:2:2 on the Ninja V
X-T3 settings used: DCI 4K, HDMI output, Boost mode, Sharpness and Noise Reduction dialed down, No temporal noise reduction, No peripheral light correction, F-log.

Edited and cropped to 2:1 aspect; no scaling. Minor color correction, only blacks, mids and highlights adjusted.

The X-T3 held out great! Watch the fine detail and the shadow detail. It’s phenomenal – our Panasonic GH5-S is no match for this camera; the Fuji it blows it out of the water!

The Ninja-V was NOT behaving as expected; it still needs some special treatment when used with the Fuji X-T3. E.g: if you end a recording via the camera, the Ninja will flash black and the kangaroo icon appears; after that, most of the time, the Ninja will stutter and you will have to remove and plugin the HDMI. Nothing that a firmware update can’t fix i guess.

The X-T3 performed as expected, only…. i have two stuck pixels that are very dim and only visible in the shadows. It is no big deal; these pixels are so small. You have to know where they are, and disappear if you lower the blacks on the F-Log image. This is a €1.450 camera, so no complaints here!
