At long last, the Fujifilm X-Pro 3 gets a release date and a price!

The Fujifilm X-Pro series has quickly become one of the most beloved Mirrorless camera series on the market. With gorgeous, retro-rangefinder looks, impressive specs, and excellent performance to boot, it’s easy to understand why. While some details have been known about the Fujifilm X-Pro 3 for a while, other information has been kept under wraps. Today, the Fujifilm X-Pro 3 has been made official, and we have all the juicy details about it after the break.

The Fujifilm X-Pro 2 was a massive success for Fujifilm. The retro camera found its way into the hearts of wedding photographers, street photographers, and many others. Everyone who loves this series of cameras has been waiting patiently for the Fujifilm X-Pro 3. Pretty soon, photographers around the world will be able to get their hands on the X-Pro 3, and they will be able to play with that rather unique rear display.

The Fujifilm X-Pro 3 is basically the same camera as the award-winning X-T3. You’ll find the same 26.1 Megapixel APS-C X-Trans sensor paired to the same X-Processor 4 Quad-Core image processor. The Fujifilm X-Pro 3 has a native ISO range of 100-12,800 (expandable from 80, 51,200), a 3-inch 1.62 million dot rear touchscreen LCD, and two SD card slots (UHS-II compatible). You’ll also find a USB Type-C port, and inputs for a microphone and a cable shutter release. The Fujifilm X-Pro 3 is capable of shooting 4K videos at 29.97p/25p/24p/23.98p. Like all other X series cameras, the Fujifilm X-Pro 3 uses Fujifilm’s X-Mount lenses.

There are a few key features that make the Fujifilm X-Pro 3 unique. The hybrid optical viewfinder and electronic viewfinder are carried over to the new model. This will no doubt delight fans of the X-Pro series, and the X-Pro 3 has a quite marvelous mini (1.28-inch) rear LCD. To give users the look and experience of using an old 35mm camera, the external LCD will display a visual representation of the film simulation that you are using. This, of course, is an homage to when photographers would tear off a portion of the box that their film came in so that they could remember what they were using. It can also display your current settings. Flip the screen down, though, and you will find the 3-inch touchscreen LCD that’s mentioned above.

The camera’s top plate and lower plate are made from Titanium, while the interior frame is crafted from magnesium alloy. The Fujifilm X-Pro 3 is also weather-sealed, which means you can shoot in the elements with little worry. You’re also going to find that the X-Pro 3 can find focus in as low as -6EV. And it will be the first Fujifilm camera to receive the new Classic Neg and Monochromatic Color film profiles.

The X-Pro 3 will be available in three colors at launch. You can choose from either Black, Dura-Black, or Dura-Silver (pictured above). The X-Pro 3 will be available to buy in the fall of 2019. There will be two price points for the X-Pro 3. In the USA, the Black model will cost $1,799.95, while both the Dura-Black and Dura-Silver will cost $1,999.95. In Canada, the prices will be $2,399.99 and $2,699.99, respectively. For more information about this new offering from Fujifilm, head to their official website.
