FUJIFILM North America Corporation launched the FUJIFILM X-Pro3, the latest rangefinder from the X Series range of mirrorless digital cameras. The company said the X-Pro3 ids created with street photographers and photojournalists in mind. It features a hybrid OVF/EVF and hidden LCD touchscreen, with a state-of-the-art imaging sensor and high-quality 4k video.
The X-Pro3 is one of the most durable camera bodies in FUJIFILM camera history, thanks to the exterior use of titanium, known for its outstanding strength-to-weight ratio, the company says. Two color variations will be available with additional DuratectTM*1 (DR) surface-hardening technology for extra toughness and premium finish. The X-Pro3 uses the back-illuminated 26.1MP X-TRANS CMOS 4 sensor and the X-Processor 4 image-processing engine, first seen in the FUJIFILM X-T3 and then the FUJIFILM X-T30. Using this combination and new firmware, the phase-detection AF now works down to a luminance of -6EV; close to absolute darkness. Also new is CLASSIC Negative Film Simulation mode, which is designed to simulate color negative film that was normally used for everyday snapshots.
The X-Pro3 features a timeless body design with a top and base plate constructed from titanium. In addition to classic black, the weather-sealed X-Pro3 is also available in DR Silver and DR Black, which utilize cold plasma technology for a scratch-resistant finish.
Fujifilm’s says its color science has given it legendary status among image-makers across the world. The exceptional knowledge gained has been poured into Fujifilm’s collection of 16 digital Film Simulation modes. This technology allows photographers to achieve stunning results straight out of camera and X-Pro3 introduces two exciting new additions to the Film Simulation mode collection: CLASSIC Neg. and MONOCHROMATIC Color.
