Fujifilm has unveiled the new X-Pro3, a mirrorless rangefinder-style camera designed specifically for street photographers and photojournalists. The optical viewfinder (OVF) has a magnification of 0.5x and parallax-correcting frame lines that allow you to put together your images with the "real world" in front of you. You can also see outside the frame so you can better anticipate the movement of subjects in the image and see the context of your shot.
The viewfinder system also includes an electronic viewfinder with 3.69 million dots (EVF), which allows you to see exactly how the resulting photo will look in real time. The EVF has a 1: 5000 contrast ratio.
At the heart of the camera is a backlit 26.1 megapixel X-Trans CMOS sensor, slightly above the Xbox Pro's 24.3-megapixel sensor , The sensor is supported by an X-Processor 4 quad-core imaging engine and has an ISO range of 160-12800.
Phase Detection Autofocus is Better in Low-Light Environments
In the video area, the X-Pro3 can shoot 4K footage at 30 frames per second.
The upper and lower base plates of the camera are made of titanium. Ultra-light body with a fantastic strength-to-weight ratio – half as dense as stainless steel but seven times as durable.
In addition to the standard black version of the camera, you also have the choice (at extra cost) of a Duratecht surface camera (black or silver) with cold plasma technology for a scratch-resistant finish.
On the back of the camera is a hidden 3-inch touch screen with 1.62 million pixels and 180-degree tilt. When the screen is closed, only a mini-display is visible, showing the most important camera settings. "Removing the distraction of a frame while shooting," says Fujifilm.
By default, the screen displays the current white balance, film simulation and ISO settings:
Other features and specifications of the camera include a new CLASSIC Neg. Film simulation mode (which simulates a color negative film), a newly developed shutter (which is smoother and more reliable), a USB-C port, and a weight of 497 g (17.5 oz).
