Fujifilm has just announced the FUJIFILM X-Pro3. It is the latest rangefinder in Fujifilm’s X Series range of mirrorless digital cameras.
At its core, the X-Pro3 is a photographer’s camera. Created with “street photographers and photojournalists in mind”, according to Fujifilm, this camera packs a lot of photography-centered features. However, that doesn’t stop it from packing a punch in the video shooting department. It can shoot 4K video with a “state-of-the-art” imaging sensor.
The X-Pro3 uses a back-illuminated 26.1MP X-TRANS CMOS 4 sensor and the X-Processor 4 image-processing engine. It’s the same engine in the FUJIFILM X-T3 and then the FUJIFILM X-T30. As for its autofocus, the camera’s phase-detection AF now works at a luminance of -6EV thanks to the sensor and engine duo and new firmware.
Additionally, the camera features a CLASSIC Neg. Film Simulation mode. Fujifilm says this mode simulates color negative film.
The X-Pro3 features a hybrid viewfinder
As for the camera’s optical viewfinder, the OVF uses a 0.5x magnification and parallax correction frame lines. You can also see the outside of the frame, allowing you to see any action coming outside of your frame. Additionally, the X-Pro3 features a 3.69M-dot OLED electronic viewfinder with a 1:5000 contrast ratio.
Hidden 180-degree tilt and touchscreen
To keep the camera usable in many different instances, the FUJIFILM X-Pro3 has a hidden 1.62M-dot, tilting LCD touchscreen. With the LCD closed, it appears as a mini-display. It will show settings as well. It should be easier to focus on shooting.
“With your mind and your eye always on the scene in front of you rather than the scene you’ve just shot, you can find a connection not just with your subject, but also with your art,” says Fujifilm.
From its top and base plates, the X-Pro3’s body is made out of titanium. Fujifilm says that while titanium is less than half the density of stainless steel, it’s still “seven times” more durable.
Pricing and availability
The X-Pro3 is expected to be released sometime this Fall starting at the price of $1,799.
