Rumored Fujifilm X-pro3 Specs Hint At In-body Image Stabilization

Rumored Fujifilm X-Pro3 Specs Hint At In-Body Image Stabilization

Back in 2016, Fujifilm launched one of their latest flagship mirrorless cameras in the form of the X-Pro2. We imagine that following the success of their X-Pro series of cameras amongst those who prefer the rangefinder style, Fujifilm will probably at some point in the future launch the X-Pro3.

Now according to a report from Fuji Addict, they claim to have heard from a source who has since revealed some of the alleged specs of the X-Pro3. This includes the use of a 24MP/26.1MP X-Trans CMOS sensor, the X-processor 4 that comes with a quad CPU, the ability to record 4K video at 60fps, and also weather sealing in a magnesium alloy body.

New Toyota Highlander spied with chiseled body, loses cardboard cladding

A new Toyota Highlander is on its way, and this is the second time one of our spy shooters has caught it out testing. Initially, we saw a Highlander with bizarre cardboard cladding, but this prototype is outfitted in more traditional car camouflage. And boy has Toyota covered it up.

Some details are still recognizable through the camo such as the grille and headlights. It's easy to tell the grille on this generation of Highlander apart from the grille on the old, especially when they're lined up right next to each other. There appear to be curved ridges showing through the black, unlike the straight bars we see on the Highlander directly behind it. Much thinner, LED headlights are displayed alongside the new grille, poking through their shrouding. The side mirrors have new mounting points and are shaped differently, too.
