Fujifilm X-Pro3 Review
The Fujifilm X-PRO3 was certainly a revolutionary camera, love it or hate it, it's refreshing to see camera companies think outside the box.
PhotographyBlog took a look at the X-PRO 3 and did their review of the camera. They gave it a mixed review with a 4 out of 5 star overall rating. They broke down the rating as follows;
|Value for money
A digital camera designed with a film ethos, the FUJIFILM X-Pro3 is a unique mirrorless camera characterized by its distinct viewfinder design, a hidden LCD screen, and its stylish, rangefinder-inspired design with a dura black finish. In terms of imaging, the X-Pro3 features the APS-C-format 26.1MP X-Trans CMOS 4 sensor along with the X-Processor 4, which enables high-resolution stills shooting and DCI/UHD 4K video recording. The sensor and processor also enable an ISO 160-12800 sensitivity range for working in a variety of lighting conditions.
PhotographyBlog's conclusions on the Fujifilm X-PRO 3;
the new Advanced Hybrid Viewfinder is improved in a lot of ways compared to the one on the X-Pro2, the loss of the slide-in 0.36x and 0.60x dual magnification modes is a real shame.
Instead replaced by a fixed 0.52x magnification, this design change makes it harder to use longer lenses on the new X-Pro3 than on the X-Pro2, despite an increase in the size of the OVF.
If you mainly shoot with one of the 23mm lenses, though, you'll be hard-pressed to notice the difference - it's only when using 35mm and longer lenses with the OVF that you can really tell the difference.
The key aim of Fujifilm's X-Pro series has always been to deliver a more traditional, film-based way of taking photos, and in most ways the new X-Pro3 delivers on that promise, whilst incorporating a lot of the modern key features from the X-T3.
The X-Pro3 is certainly a niche camera, even more so than the previous two generations, but in a world where specs are king, Fujifilm are hoping a more personal approach will actually drive sales, rather than decrease them. Only time will tell if this makes commercial sense, but the X-Pro3 is definitely worth trying-out in person if you value a more traditional, considered approach to taking photos.
