That finally changed back in October of this year, with the aptly-named Fuji X-Pro3 getting the same internal upgrade treatment as the X-T3 and X-T30. But forget about that I hear you cry, what about the screen? Fujifilm is well known for its JPG film emulation modes, and the new X-Pro3 adds a new one dubbed Classic Negative Simulation. Autofocusing has always been excellent with Fujifilm cameras, and the X-Pro3 is no different. Face and eye detection work well, and improved … Sample Images Introduction Specifications Accessories Unboxing Performance Compared User's Guide Recommendations More Fujifilm X-Pro3 (17.4 oz./494g with battery and one SD card, has two SD slots, $1,799 in black as shown here or $1,999 in optional Duratect "Dura" black or $1,999 in optional Duratect "Dura" silver) and XF 35mm f/2 WR. Fujifilm claims the autofocus now works at very low light levels down to -6EV with an f1.4 lens. X-Pro 3 porta all'estremo il suo carattere vintage e addirittura nasconde lo schermo, a favore di un piccolo display sul retro che di default riporta i dati della simulazione pellicola, così come se si fosse messo il talloncino della scatola del rullino. Just days before the official release of the new Fujifilm X-Pro3, I managed to get my Friends at Fujifilm Malaysia to send me a sample camera. Fujifilm X-Pro3 image quality – Early signs of the usual Fujifilm flair for out-of-camera JPEG quality I was only able to shoot on a pre-production X-Pro3, which didn’t have final firmware. What is obvious here though is just how much bigger the viewfinder image is on the X-Pro3 on the right compared to the X-Pro2 on the left – these were photographed from the same distance to be comparable. 1/4000″. That’s my main in-depth review, although I’ve also included my initial hands-on preview video from the launch event if you want to quickly be briefed on the highlights; (Note: Fujifilm originally quoted the video as being in 10 bit, but it’s actually 8 bit. Above: The Grain effect has also been enhanced with options to adjust the roughness and grain size, again providing great control over the final image style all in-camera. Thereâs also a neat new feature that lets you program an AF limiter to restrict the range of distances that the lenses will focus over. I'd get mine at Adorama, at Amazon, at B&H, at Crutchfield or at eBay if you know How to Win at eBay. Itâs fine for waist-level shooting in the 90 degree position though – and this is a key advantage it has over the fixed screens of its predecessors, and itâs now touch-sensitive too. Like other electronic viewfinders, itâll provide focusing assistance and previews of things like white balance and film simulation, and of course also let you playback images or navigate the menus; indeed the X-Pro 3 will considerately switch to the electronic view when you press the menu button even if you were previously composing in the optical mode. Importantly though, some of this is compensated by the X-Pro3âs viewfinder image being bigger to start with, so if you compare the actual coverage frames here side-by-side, the X-Pro2âs dual-magnification advantage may not be as significant as you assumed. bigger.I got mine at B&H; I'd also get it at Adorama or at Amazon.. Itâs now also available in three finishes: plain black, Dura Black and Dura Silver, with the Dura versions adding Duratect coatings – typically deployed on luxury watches – on the metal surfaces to increase its resistance to scratches. Thereâs also high speed cropped 1080 available up to 120p for a four to five times slow-down, and while thereâs no HDMI output, there is at least the chance to record flat footage internally in F-Log at 4:2:0 8 bit. Eagle-eyed Fuji-fans will also notice the grip now has a small vertical indent that improves the feel in your hands more than it looks. Here, like its predecessor, it switches between the viewfinder modes which Iâll show you later. Above: Ok, the rear of the X-Pro3 is now home to a small 1.28in non-backlit square display that shows the current Film Simulation in use – a playful nod to the small windows on old film cameras where youâd slot-in a piece of the cardboard film packaging for reference. Youâre looking at the optical view here, which I actually filmed through the viewfinder to give you an idea of how it looks; itâs now a little larger, less distorted and with a slightly higher eye-point than before, but the main concept remains the same. Above: The Monochrome adjustment introduced on the X-T3 which let you warm an image towards orange or cool it towards blue has been enhanced with additional hues, allowing you to give mono images a tint towards red, yellow, magenta or green with loads of fine variations. Thereâs no HDMI port, although Iâm sure some owners might have wanted to connect it to a display for a slideshow, or is that just me? Here’s a sample I filmed in 4k in the Eterna profile, using the XF 16mm lens. Some longer lenses have this built-in, but itâs handy to apply it to standard or wider ones to reduce potential for hunting, especially in spontaneous street or event photography. The plain black model which I tried will cost around 1700 pounds and the Dura-coated versions add about 180 pounds more. Fujifilm X-Pro2 (17.1 oz./485 g with battery and card, about $1,699) and 35mm f/2 lens. Fujifilm’s X-Pro3 upgrades its much-loved rangefinder series with the expected sensor and processor from the X-T3 and X-T30, improves the build quality with titanium top and bottom panels, offers an optional coating for greater scratch resistance, enhances the cunning hybrid viewfinder in both its optical and electronic modes, adds a raft of processing additions including broader monochrome adjustments … Fujifilm X-Pro3 Sensor and Photography Features Fujifilm X-Pro3 has a 26.0MP APS-C (23.5 x 15.6 mm) sized BSI-CMOS sensor and features X-Processor 4 processor. Above: In terms of wired connectivity, thereâs just two: USB-C that supports 3.1 Gen 1 speeds and can be used for both charging and power during operation, alongside a 2.5mm jack thatâs for a remote cord or an external microphone, although if you have a 3.5mm plug on your mic youâll need to use an adapter.

So at 35mm and above the dual magnification of the X-Pro2âs viewfinder does give it a small advantage over the X-Pro3, but at 23mm and wider, the bigger viewfinder image of the X-Pro3 gives it the lead over the 2. Conversely the X-Pro3 now only has one viewfinder magnification, so when fitting a longer lens, the coverage frame simply shrinks in size as seen on the right.
