At the FujiFilm X Summit in September, Fuji made an X-Pro3 Development Announcement and promised more detailed specs on October 23. Some industry observes were perhaps expecting the announcement of the X-H2 professional body, but the X-Pro line is long overdue for an update.
X-Pro3 Development Announcement
Fuji was somewhat tight-lipped on the new X-Pro3 in terms of detailed specifications, but here’s what we do know so far:
- The body is made of a new titanium outer casing and will be available in three finish options: Black, ‘Dura Black’ and ‘Dura Silver.
- The hybrid optical/EVF viewfinder has been updated and improved versus the viewfinder found on the X-Pro2.
- The rear LCD display is very small and shows only the film simulation selected, f/stop, shutter speed, and ISO. To view a large screen for taking or reviewing photos, you’ll have to fold down the back panel. Fuji says they did this to keep the user focused on composing and shooting, and not spending so much time review what they just shot.
- The X-Pro3 will also ship with Fuji’s newest film simulation dubbed Classic Negative, presumably a counter-point to its very popular Classic Chrome film simulation. Fuji says The Classic Negative setting is modeled after their Fujicolor Superia film stock.
