The big talking point is the X-Pro3’s rear screen, or lack of. By doing away with a conventional display and implementing a sub-monitor that can be glanced at to view exposure and other settings, it encourages users to raise the hybrid viewfinder to the eye and not get sidetracked by reviewing photos immediately after taking them. Rest-assured it does have a screen, but it has to be tilted down to be viewed. The sensor at the heart of the X-Pro3 outputs images of identical quality to Fujifilm’s X-T4, guaranteeing stunning colour reproduction and splendid JPEGs. Never has there been a better case of hiring a camera to find out if it’s right for you.

Something different is here. This camera turns anticipation into reality. The texture of titanium stimulates your senses, while the unique viewfinder prompts discovery and creativity. It brings back the desire to interact with the world through a camera, while attaining an understanding to record it as your own for eternity. The X-Pro3 is the definition of pure photography.
The luxurious black body has been the traditional finish of the “X-Pro” series since 2011. Its sleek appearance is indicative of the camera’s potential. The combination of titanium and the painted finish will age beautifully to add to the camera’s appeal, highlighting its robust yet understated style.
From the start, the X Series has made sure to preserve the elegance, beauty and functionality of a camera while making sure to respect the history of photography. Once you pick up this camera, you will feel this and enjoy the sense of nostalgia. The unique character of the titanium finish will never be lost. You quickly realise a camera is much more than just a photographic tool.
The frame of the camera body is made from magnesium, while the top cover and the base plate, which are the parts exposed to the elements are made from corrosion resistant titanium.
Street photographers prefer to carry their camera on them rather than putting it in a bag, to make sure they are ready to capture those fleeting moments that will never exist again. What they need is a compact, lightweight and reliable camera, allowing them to focus on capturing the world around them.
One of the best things about digital cameras is the EVF, it is the only way to see exactly how your settings will change the end result. However, we know that an OVF gives a primal sense of photographic pleasure, allowing users to enjoy “looking through the lens” at their subject. The EVF facilitates composing your image within the frame, while the OVF opens your creativity to what is going on outside the frame. The hybrid viewfinder allows you to switch between the two with a simple flick of the lever.
The rangefinder OVF allows you to explore the world outside the viewfinder frame enabling you to anticipate a chance moment arriving before you press the shutter.
A black frame is inserted between frames to reduce the motion blur in the EVF. This is especially useful when you move the camera quickly when tracking a subject.
The hidden LCD encourages a more traditional shooting style, prompting photographers to concentrate on composing using the viewfinder. Of course, you can flip open the screen to check your images between shooting sessions, but in essence, the X-Pro3 wants you to trust your instincts as a photographer and shoot without the distraction of checking every image. The LCD screen helps you to adjust the settings and find what, if anything, needs to be improved – ready for next time.
The LCD screen has an anti-reflective coating, a wide angle of view, and is able to display images with high contrast and natural colours, ideal for reviewing or composing images in bright daylight or low light.
The use of Memory LCD means users can easily see the settings for Film Simulation, white balance, etc. regardless of whether the camera is turned off or on.
The new firmware algorithm in the X-Pro3 is designed to harness the full potential of the fourth-generation X-Trans CMOS 4 sensor and X-Processor 4.
FUJIFILM has continued to study colour since the production and development of photographic films in 1934. The technologies and experiences, accumulated over the years, have been injected into the Film Simulation modes. Each of the carefully chosen modes has a unique set of colours and tonality to create images that reflect how a photographer felt when taking the picture. The world of extended colour expressions including CLASSIC CHROME, ACROS and ETERNA, is now joined by another new mode of Film Simulation.
The new Film Simulation mode has been designed to simulate colour negative film that was traditionally chosen for snapshots of everyday scenes. The colours, precisely controlled for each level of brightness, create a rich chromatic contrast to add extra definition. The new “CLASSIC Neg.” takes you back to scenes as you saw them growing up, bringing back the joy of photography.
The X-Pro3 allows you to choose a key colour from a matrix of warm / cool tones and magenta / green hues. You can incorporate the rich gradation into your images to create photographs with a personal twist. Enjoy creating your own monochrome world with added hues, going beyond the traditional approach of using warm tones for a retro look and cool tones for urban snapshots.
The X-Pro3 design means you can keep your eyes focussed on the subject while your fingers access the various buttons and dials to ensure that you never miss a perfect photo opportunity.
The rating function is essential when choosing images to keep out of the thousands of pictures taken. This feature has enhanced compatibility with photo management software.
The X-Pro3 features a USB Type-C port, enabling a smart way of charging or transferring information from your camera.
