Fujifilm X-Pro3 – A Camera That Can Almost Focus in Complete Darkness

Taken from Engadget … 

Fujifilm has officially unveiled the X-Pro3, the latest in its esoteric X-Pro lineup aimed at street photographers and photojournalists. Teased last month, it has a number of eccentric features, including a 3.5-inch, 1.65-million dot rear display that you can’t even see without flipping down. Otherwise, it only shows the shutter speed, aperture and other basic information, or the film simulation if you’re using one.

Like the X-T3, it has a 26.1-megapixel X-Trans4 sensor and quad-core X-Processor 4 imaging engine. Fujifilm has yet to mention the total number of autofocus points, but it said that the AF will function in near pitch darkness at -6 EV, matching or even beating what Nikon’s full-frame Z 6 can do. As with the X-T3 and other X-Trans4 models, it should shoot well in low light, with an ISO range of 160-12,800 or 80-51,200 (expanded).

On the video side, it can’t match the 60fps, 10-bit 4K of the X-T3 because it’s really not designed for that. Still, you get up to DCI 4K (4,096 x 2,160) video at 30 fps or 1080p at 120 fps max. The display flips down 180 degrees, but because it’s tilted backwards (for that whole “stay in the moment” thing), you can’t really use it for vlogging or selfies. There’s a 2.5mm microphone port, but no headphone jack.

This is not a camera for everyone, but it’s a strong draw for serious photographers with specific needs. The Fujifilm X-Pro3 will go on sale in late Fall 2019 for $1,800 in black, or $2,000 in Dura Black or Dura Silver.
