Technical specifications and alleged price and release date for Fujifilm X-Pro3 camera leaked ahead of launch
At the time of writing, Fujifilm was still counting down the hours to revealing the X-Pro3 camera to the world. However, a leaker has managed to get hold of a press kit containing numerous images and details of the device and has shared them before the Japanese company could start heralding the camera’s official arrival. The tipster involved has also included a supposed price tag (in Japanese yen) and release date.
The Fujifilm X-Pro3 is unsurprisingly a big step-up from its aging predecessor, the X-Pro2, which was released in 2016. The latest X-Pro camera has an EVF refresh rate of 100 fps compared to 85 fps for the X-Pro 2, and the newest addition to the lineup sports a 26.1 MP X-Trans CMOS IV sensor whereas the earlier device had a 24.3 MP X-Trans CMOS III sensor.
The X-Pro3 also comes with a 1.62 million dot touchscreen display that can be flipped through 180°, delivering more flexibility for the active photographer. Low-light autofocus is measured at -6.0EV, which is streets ahead of the X-Pro2’s -1.0EV offering. An HDR shooting function is onboard, and there is a nifty feature that can combine multiple exposures of up to nine frames from various modes (i.e. Additive, Average, Comparative Bright, Comparative Dark), viewpoints, and different times into a single fancy collage.
It’s an impressive piece of photography equipment, which means of course the Fujifilm X-Pro3 won’t come cheap. The original tech specs leaker, nokishita_c, writes that the camera will cost 235,950 yen including tax for a black variant, and a Duratect black and silver model will cost 263,450 yen, which at the current exchange rate equates to US$2,175 and US$2,429, respectively. The leaked release date is stated as November 28.
