Fujifilm has announced the launch of the new flagship X-series camera – Fujifilm X-Pro3. The Fujifilm X-Pro3 26.1-megapixel mirrorless camera comes with hybrid optical EVF, HDR in-camera recording and monochrome status display. It can be purchased for a starting price of $1,800 (approx. Rs 1,27,450).
The Fujifilm X-Pro3 features a 26.1-megapixel X-Trans IV CMOS APS-C sensor and is powered by Fujifilm’s X Processor 4. The system offers an improved phase-detection autofocus system which is operational even under near pitch darkness at -6 EV with an ISO range of 160-12,800 and expanded range of 80-51,200.
The X-Pro3 has a hybrid optical and electronic viewfinder with 100 fps frame rate and a new 3.69-million dot 200 Hz OLED panel. Fujifilm says the optical viewfinder offers a wider FOV with less distortion and better eye point.
There are two screens on the camera on both sides of the same panel, supported by a 180-degree hinge. When closed, users will be greeted by a 1.28-inch colour E-Ink screen which can display ISO settings and film simulation. Upon flipping the panel to bottom, there will be a 3-inch .62-million-dot touchscreen which can be used to review pictures, navigate through the camera.
The Fujifilm X-Pro3 can record videos in (4,096 x 2,160) resolution at 30 fps or 1080p at 120 fps. There’s an in-camera HDR mode which shoots three burst shots and applies four levels of fact. The camera is said to last to up to 400 shots on a single charge and charges through a USB-C port. Connectivity options include 2.5mm jack for remote or microphone input, two UHS-II SD card slots and USB-C 3.1 Gen1 port.
Fujifilm X-Pro3 26.1-megapixel mirrorless camera will be available from late Fall 2019 at $1,800 (approx. Rs 1,27,450) for the black coloured model. The Dura Black and Dura Silver versions can be purchased for $2,000 (approx. Rs 1,41,600).
