- DuratectTM*1 coating and titanium exterior gives elegance and enhanced durability
- Evolution of the world’s only “Advanced Hybrid Viewfinder” with enhanced resolution and luminance to enhance the joy of “shooting through the viewfinder”
- New “CLASSIC Neg.” Film Simulation gives even more diverse color tones to images
FUJIFILM Corporation (President: Kenji Sukeno) is pleased to announce the launch of the FUJIFILM X-Pro3 (hereinafter “X-Pro3”) in late November, 2019, as the latest flagship model for the X Series range of mirrorless digital cameras.
The X Series’ first interchangeable lens camera, “FUJIFILM X-Pro1,” was released in February 2012 and its successor, “FUJIFILM X-Pro2,” in March 2016 with vastly improved image quality and performance. The X-Pro Series has been embraced by many professional and enthusiast photographers. They are mainly in the fields of documentary and reportage photography because of the classic rangefinder style, portability and dials that enable intuitive operation.
The X-Pro3 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 color variations will be available with additional DuratectTM surface-hardening technology for extra toughness and 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 color reproduction to assist photographers and improve the viewfinder experience. Also new is “CLASSIC Neg” Film Simulation, which simulates color negative film that was normally used for everyday snapshots.
