The X-Pro3 now has one of the most durable camera bodies thanks to the use of titanium for the exterior sections, which has outstanding strength to weight ratio. Two colour variations will be available with additional DuratectTM surface-hardening technology for extra toughness and a premium finish. The X-Pro3 uses the back illuminated 26.1MP “X-TransTM*2 CMOS 4” sensor and the “X-Processor 4” image processing engine, first seen in the FUJIFILM X-T3 and then the FUJIFILM X-T30, to ensure the right level of performance and image quality for a flagship model are met. Using this combination and new firmware, the phase-detection AF now works down to a luminance of -6EV, which is close to pitch darkness. The new “Advanced Hybrid Viewfinder,” uses a high resolution 3.69-million-dot organic EL panel, and has a high luminance and advanced colour reproduction to assist photographers and improve the viewfinder experience. Also new is “CLASSIC Neg” Film Simulation, which simulates colour negative film that was normally used for everyday snapshots.
Enhanced “Advanced Hybrid Viewfinder,”
Users can switch between the optical viewfinder (OVF), which provides a constant view of your subject without any time lag, and the electronic viewfinder (EVF), which allows you to check exposure while you shoot.
The EVF uses a 3.69-million-dot organic EL panel with advanced display performance. The organic EL panel boasts a high contrast ratio of over 1:5000 and the maximum luminance of 1500cd/m2 to display the finest details even in shadows and highlights. It also covers 97% of the sRGB colour space, giving more accurate color reproduction.
EVF display options in the “Boost” performance mode now includes “Smoothness priority” where a black frame is inserted between each of the frames at approx. 100fps to provide a smoother appearance with a minimal sense of residual images, giving an equivalent refresh rate of approx. 200fps. This option is recommended when you are taking pictures of fast moving subjects and need to track the erratic motion.
The camera also features the “Electronic Range Finder” function, in which a small EVF window is displayed within the OVF to help checking electronic settings. The EVF window displays live view, enlargement of an AF point and pictures taken, improving the usefulness of the OVF.
The exterior of the camera body is made of titanium, which gives the camera additional strength and corrosion resistance. The “Black” version combines titanium with premium quality coating giving it a sleek, elegant appearance. Also available are the “DR Black” and “DR Silver” versions, which have the surface hardening technology called DuratectTM applied to achieve a Vickers hardness rating up to 1500Hv to protect the camera from scratches while accentuating the look with a unique texture.
The internal framework of the camera body is made from magnesium alloy. Weather sealing has been applied at 70 points to give the camera advanced dust and moisture resistance. The camera is also capable of operating in temperatures as low as -10℃, allowing users to be on location and not having to worry about the weather.
UHD and DCI 4K Video Recording
More than a stills camera, the X-Pro3 offers an enticing array of video capabilities, including internal DCI/UHD 4K recording at up to 30 fps. Greatly benefitting overall video performance, the speed of the X-Processor 4 enables fast read speeds when recording 4K video and helps to reduce rolling shutter distortion when filming moving subjects. Also, the camera features a 2.5mm port and a 3.5mm external microphone adapter is included for more advanced audio solutions.
Superb handling in the pursuit of pure photography
The 1.62-million-dot high-resolution tilting LCD touchscreen display, can flip approx. 180 degrees, allowing you to shoot from the hip, at ground level or with the camera above your head. The screen offers a wide angle of view and delivers high contrast yet natural colour reproduction to provide a clear and high quality view.
The rear 1.28-inch colour Memory LCD, protected with toughened glass, displays shooting settings regardless if the camera is turned on or not. The screen can be set in the “Classic” mode which displays Film Simulation, white balance and other image settings reminiscent of film cameras, or in the “Standard” mode for displays shutter speed, ISO sensitivity, the number of remaining frames and other shooting settings in plain numbers and icons.
The “Highlight Tone” and “Shadow Tone” options, have been integrated into the “Tonal Curve” setting so that you can intuitively adjust settings while checking the tonal curve.
Compatibility with 3rd party software has been improved so they can now read ratings given to pictures using the “Rating” function.
The X-Pro3 has a USB Type-C port (USB3.1 Gen1), to charge the camera’s battery and transfer data.
The functionality of the “Q” quick menu has been improved. You can now choose the number of icons to be displayed in the menu from 16, 12, 8 or 4. “Transparent” has been added as a new background option, allowing you to change the settings but ensuring you won’t miss a photo opportunity.
