Yep, me. The X-PRO2 is my favourite Fujifilm camera to date, I love shooting with it, but I also have the X-T3. The super EVF and the speed, to a lesser extent, are great to work with I bough it mainly as a supplementary video camera but I'm using it more and more as the main cam. Also the images out of that new sensor are nice at lower ISO. If I'm shooting faster moving stuff I'll lean on the XT more than the Pro, happy to use either though I'll more often have the X-PRO2 out with me nowadays. X-T3 probably the best rounded camera out there IMO.

Looking [ha] forward to shooting through the new viewfinder in the X-PRO3, looking less forward to using the rear screen, cool as it is.

The titanium one is for sure...

Thanks for your thoughts! The X-Pro2 for me has been by far my favorite camera I've ever shot with. I like my X-T1 too, but I much prefer using the X-Pro2... I'm worried I won't enjoy shooting with the X-T3 as much as my primary camera. I think I'm going to bite the bullet though... I have a big shoot coming up in a couple of months and I don't really trust the X-Pro2 as the primary for it anymore, lately I've had a slew of little issues that add up to paranoia over it, the biggest of which is that the shutter seems to be on it's way out -?

A solid backup plan is important when you are working ( or relied on to get the shot too I guess ). I’ve had equipment go down during a shoot and it is really annoying but always a backup in the bag; cameras, lenses, lights, triggers... you are right to play into your paranoia on this, it’s professional to do so.

I did neglect my X-PRO2 for a while last summer but only for a few months. If only Fuji would put the EVF from the XT into it I’d be very happy

I mean, I do always have my X-T1 as a backup, but I'd rather have something with roughly the same resolution should I need to use it.

Yea that is easier all round, having cameras that have similar performance. I still have my old X-E2 in the bag as a just in case camera

I have an X-T2 and X-T1 as a back up, lately I have been thinking about grabbing and X-T3 for that exact reason.

So, just to further complicate my decision making process... now I'm seriously considering an X-H1 (never thought I'd say that). Reason being; Currently it's sitting at $999 with the battery grip, making it an absolutely killer deal. I normally wouldn't even look at the X-H1, but I'm realizing that even if I get the X-T3 I'll likely still be using my X-Pro2 the vast majority of the time for my personal work until it completely dies, thus the bulk of the X-H1 wouldn't really be that big of a deal... I don't know, am I crazy?

I've also been trying to motivate myself to make more videos, so maybe the IBIS in the X-H1 will help motivate me? I don't know... tough choice.

IBIS can be handy if you are holding the camera in your hand but it’s not the best option for stable video. A gimbal/steadycam or tripod/monopod is more helpful, if you need stable video get one of those also. IF you are happy with he AF for video on the X-PRO2/T2 then the X-H1 will do you great. The X-T3 is a better video tool though IMO ( or the X-T30 ). I'd buy the X-T3 over the X-H1 any day just for the 10bit 4:2:2 HLG, totally worth the extra $300. You'll need an external recorder if you need to record more the 30 mins of footage at a time on any of them. The X-T3 can be easily powered via USB-c with a power bank making the battery grip redundant or get a dummy battery power cable and run it from a goldmoust or v mount, as well as your external recorder if you are going that way.

At that price the X-H1 is a no brainer. The grip comes with two extra batteries that's another $131.58 in your pocket.

Both of these are good points, which is why (to me), it's anything but a "no brainer" :lol:

I'm going to go to Best Buy tomorrow on my way into work to see if they have the X-T3 in stock to play with a bit as well as some of the bigger mirrorless cameras from other brands (similar in size to the X-H1, since they almost certainly won't have the X-H1 on display).

I know a gimbal is better, but I'm not looking to get that seriously into video, just some run-and-gun type stuff.

As far as video goes..

to me the xh1 stabilizer is somewhere between sony and pana.. for sure not as good as Panasonics best ibis (g9 or gh5) but for sure better than Sony's ibis in the a73 or a6500..

super helpful for adding the extra bit of smoothness while practicing good form ..

but yeah in every other regard the xt3 is better

really wanted to pull out the tripod and get out a bit further for better angles for some of the shots I took , but the wife just had knee surgery … so it was a quick trip
