Fujifilm X-Pro3 Development Announced, Coming on October 23

By on

At Fujifilm X Summit, Fujifilm has announced the development of the upcoming Fujifilm X-Pro3 camera. The new camera is going to be made from titanium to make it more durable than previous X-Series cameras and will be 10x more resistant to scratches than stainless steel.

Fujifilm X-Pro3 will be available in three colors, the classic black as well as a DURA black and DURA silver models. Looks like Fuji added a small screen on the back of the camera that shows the basic exposure information. It can even show a small image similar to the tab of a film pack that used to be slipped onto film cameras. This will make the selected Film Simulation mode clear.

On the X-Pro 3, the screen is hidden, but can be revealed by tilting down the back of the camera. There will also be a new Film Simulation mode called Classic Negative which will have a nostalgic filmic appearance.

New Features for X-Series Cameras

Fujifilm is planning to add the following features to its X-Series cameras:

  • Multiple shot for HDR – images will be captured with different exposure values and then combined into one image with greater dynamic range.
  • Focus Bracketing – the camera will automatically detect how many shots are required and where the AF point needs to be for each one. The images can then be merged in software post-capture to create greater depth of field.
  • Multiple Exposure – extending from 2 images to 9
  • Drone and Gimbal compatibility – the drone/gimbal controls will be able to adjust key features such as exposure and AF point.
