Fujifilm Confirms Development Of The X-Pro3

We have been hearing rumors for a while now that Fujifilm could be developing a new X-Pro camera in the form of the X-Pro3. It looks like the rumors were true after all because at the Fujifilm X Summit in Tokyo, the company has officially confirmed that they are developing the X-Pro3 camera.

In fact, the upcoming X-Pro3 is expected to come with a host of changes to its design that weren’t in the previous model. One of those changes include the use of titanium. Most cameras are typically made using magnesium alloy or aluminum as they are better as dissipating heat and are easier to work with.

In the past few months, we have been hearing rumors that Fujifilm could be working on a new camera in the form of the Fujifilm X-Pro3. The camera is expected to come with some redesign hardware features, such as a “unique” tilt screen. Now according to a new report from Fuji Rumors, it seems that the company could be making another design change that some might not be too happy about.

According to the report, apparently Fujifilm is expected to ditch the D-pad controls found on the back of the camera. It is unclear what this means for the camera and its controls, although there is still that tiny joystick which we guess could act as a replacement of sort, although like we said, we’re sure that there will be some who probably will miss it and won’t be too thrilled with this redesign.

If you’re looking for a rangefinder style camera that won’t break the bank like a Leica, then Fujifilm’s X-Pro series might be a series of cameras that you are familiar with. Now, the X-Pro2 has been out for a while now, which is why we have started to hear rumors that an X-Pro3 could be close to launching.

Rumors from earlier this year suggest that the camera could launch in 2019, and now a new report from Fuji Rumors claim that the camera might actually be launching in the second half of October. There are no specific dates mentioned yet so it’s really anyone’s guess, but if it’s true, then we only have about a month and a half before we get all the official details.

These days, digital cameras usually come with an LCD screen on the back that can be tilted. This allows users, especially vloggers, to turn the screen towards them so that they can see themselves while the film to ensure that they are in the frame. It also allows photographers to get down low or up high for some unique perspectives.

Unfortunately, not all camera makers have adopted this feature, especially Fujifilm when it comes to their X-Pro series of rangefinder mirrorless cameras. However, according to a report from Fuji Rumors, that is expected to change with the X-Pro3 in which they have heard from “trusted sources” that the X-Pro3 could come with a “unique” tilt screen.

We have been hearing rumors that a new Fujifilm X-Pro3 could be in the works and now according to a new report from Fuji Rumors, one of the alleged new features of the upcoming camera could be the inclusion of a tilt screen. For photographers using other brands, a tilt screen is hardly groundbreaking.

However, as Fuji Rumors notes, Fujifilm has in the past been kind of resistant to the idea of tilt displays for its rangefinder cameras, like the X-Pro series. The company has employed the use of the feature in other models except its X-Pro series, the X100 series, and the X-E series, so this could be quite useful for some.

If rangefinder-style cameras are your kind of thing but you don’t want to spend the money or have the money for a Leica, Fujifilm’s X-Pro series comes pretty close. In fact, it seems that we might be able to expect to see a new X-Pro camera later this year as it has been rumored that the X-Pro3, successor to the X-Pro2 which was launched in 2016, could be coming in the fall of 2019.

In addition to the rumor that it could launch this fall, Nokishita Camera recently tweeted that an unknown Fujifilm camera has been registered with the model number FF190002, leading to speculation that it could be the X-Pro3. While there is a possibility that it could be the X-H2, it is most likely the X-Pro3 because the X-H2 is said to only arrive in 2020.

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.

Fujifilm has several high-end mirrorless cameras, one of which is a rangefinder-style camera in the form of the X-Pro series. So far there have been two models: the X-Pro and the X-Pro2, and according to an earlier rumor by Fuji Rumors, it has been rumored that the X-Pro3 could actually be launched later this year.

Details about the camera are next to nothing at the moment, but according to the publication, they have recently received a tip from a source that claims that the X-Pro3 could actually be manufactured in Japan. For those unfamiliar, Fujifilm has taken pride at how the bulk of its cameras and lenses are made in Japan.
