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.
