Fujifilm Announces mirrorless digital camera FUJIFILM X-Pro3
Fujifilm today announced the launch of the FUJIFILM X-Pro3 (X-Pro3), the latest flagship model for the X Series lineup of compact and lightweight mirrorless digital cameras. The X-Pro3 is the first Fujifilm digital camera to use strong yet lightweight titanium to achieve advanced portability and durability, making it easier than ever to enjoy photography with premium image quality. The new X-Pro3 is Fujifilm’s first digital camera whose exterior is made of titanium, making it lightweight, strong and resistant to corrosion. The internal framework of the camera body is made of robust yet highly rigid magnesium alloy for exceptional portability and durability.
The X-Pro3 has the Advanced Hybrid Viewfinder, the world’s only viewfinder that can be switched between optical viewfinder (OVF) and electronic viewfinder (EVF). The EVF uses a bright and high-resolution 3.69-million-dot organic EL panel for enhanced visibility. The camera also features the back-illuminated 26.1MP X-Trans CMOS 4sensor and the high-speed image processing engine X-Processor 4. Also, evolved algorithm enables the camera to realize fast and accurate phase-detection AF at the minimum luminance of -6EV, which is close to pitch darkness.
The X-Pro3 features a 1.62-million-dot tilting touchscreen LCD monitor that fits flush on the rear side of the camera body. It can be flipped approximately 180 degrees, allowing users to shoot in various styles from high to low angles. It offers excellent visibility due to its high resolution, wide angle of view and strong contrast. The weather resistant structure is sealed in 70 places of the camera body provides dust and water resistance. The camera is also capable of operating at temperatures as low as -10°C, allowing field photography in the toughest of the shooting conditions.
The X-Pro3’s sophisticated design brings out the appeal of titanium’s beautiful tone and unique texture to the maximum. It comes in three color variations, namely the “Black” using quality coating for dignified appearance, as well as the DR Black andDR Silver, which have the surface-hardening technology called Duratect applied to achieve strong scratch resistance and appearance of premium elegance, making the camera an absolute pleasure to own.
The 1.28-inch color Memory LCD monitor, a new feature on the camera’s rear panel, displays shooting settings regardless of whether the camera is turned on or not. The screen can be set in the Classic mode for displaying the Film Simulation mode selected, using the packaging icon of the corresponding photo film, or the Standard mode for displaying shutter speed, aperture and other shooting settings. The camera has dual SD card slots with UHS-II support and you can connect to external power sources over its USB 3.1 (Type C) connector. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.The X-Pro3 will be available soon in a traditional black finish for $1799. The Duratect finish, silver and black models will be priced at $1999.
