    I have a Fujifilm X-T3 on order, hoping it arrives by end of September. Put simply, I see it as a mix of portability, power, and image quality, a camera I will have with me much of the time, which is not true of my pile of Big Rigs.

    The first body from Fuji that has me seriously considering an upgrade from my two-generation old X-E2S. Really exciting feature set.

    I've had a Fujifilm X-T3 for just 2 weeks, already love it. So nice as a walk-around, very fast action to power up and shoot. Gorgeous pictures.

    One first-steps thing I have to master is guiding the camera to what I want it to auto-focus on in this camera, which of course has different controls from prior cameras. There are several focus modes, so a quick shot might not be using the best AF mode for the scene. I stress "quick" because as a former "press" photographer (newspapers, magazines, TV) I am attracted to candid shots which come and go fast. For instance, focusing on my nearby romping dog works great, but then spinning around to shoot someone in a vista with many possible focal points the camera doesn't always know what to do unless I switch AF modes and/or put one of the focusing points in the right place -- nothing unusual, just learning how to it quickly. Not a camera complaint, but plenty to master in with so so so many modes, options, settings. It's all wonderful, I just gotta spend more time with it.

    It is helping that I stopped using another walk-around camera, a small Canon with a zoom lever right where the Fuji has its power lever (Oops, by habit I turned it off 20 times the first day);

    Now I'm trying to decide what "holster" style case to use, ideally something that is "just right" in size which means more compact than cases designed for larger full-frame DSLRs. .I don't want to lose the delightfully compact portability of the X-T3 by burying it in an too-big case. (Right now it's in an old video camera padded waist-band case it sort of fits.)

    ziggy note: You should be able to mount an external monitor, or an external recorder with a monitor, atop the X-T3 but in reverse, which would allow monitoring the recording for a vlogging application.
