Akihabara News (Tokyo) — In late November, Fujifilm is releasing its X-Pro3 mirrorless digital camera, the third iteration of a line first launched in 2012.
The X-Pro3 is very much intended for street photography, built for capturing still images much more than video, though it does have 4K video capability and can shoot sharp and beautiful images.
Two points set the X-Pro3 apart from other models.
First, it possesses an “Advanced Hybrid Viewfinder,” which can be switched between optical viewfinder (OVF) and electronic viewfinder (EVF). This model lays emphasis on use of the OVF which allows photographers to see what they are shooting with their own eyes, including people and objects that have not yet entered the field of the shot.
However, it also includes a 1.62-million-dot tilting touchscreen LCD monitor found behind a rear flipscreen which extends about 180 degrees downward.
The other major selling point of this camera is its strong and lightweight titanium construction, allowing it to be easily portable and highly resistant to scratching and other physical damage, including against dust and water.
The X-Pro3 also possesses advanced autofocus and a variety of special filming modes that can create stylized color expressions.
