Fujifilm X-Pro3 Mirrorless Camera in Development, Specs, Pricing and Availability

Mark Goldstein | Compact System Camera

Fujifilm have unveiled the new X-Pro3 mirrorless camera at an X-summit event in Shibuya, Japan. The Fujifilm X-Pro3 camera will be officially announced on October 23rd, but details have already emerged that the new model will be made out of titanium, making it 10x more scratch-resistant than a stainless steel chassis.

It will also feature an innovative "hidden" LCD screen on the rear, plus a smaller miniature screen which will display basic exposure information and even the currently selected film simulation.

Other new features include a Classic Negative film simulation mode, improved optical and electronic viewfinders.

The Fujifilm X-Pro3 will be available in three colours - classic black, Dura Black and Dura silver. The price and availability of the X-Pro3 will be announced on the 23rd October.

In other news, Fujifilm have abandoned plans to release a 35mm F1 lens, instead replacing it in the lens roadmap with a 50mm F1 lens, which will be smaller and more practical to use.

You can view the entire Shibuya X Summit, which is a unique chance for photographers and fans to find out more about the thinking behind the development of Fujifilm's X Series and GFX System direct from our senior management and X-Photographers, here:
