Overview: The Fujifilm X-Pro3 is the new flagship for the X-Series lineup of interchangeable lens mirrorless digital cameras. The camera frame is made from magnesium, while the top cover and base plate are constructed with strong, lightweight titanium. It features the unique Advanced Hybrid Viewfinder that can be switched between an optical viewfinder to an electronic viewfinder. This "body only" package does not include any lenses.
Compatible Lenses: The X-Pro3 has the Fujifilm X-Mount, and is compatible with the wide range of prime and zoom lenses and teleconverters. Like the X-Pro3, these lenses have a weather-resistant and dust-resistant finish for shooting in all conditions.
High Performance LCD Monitor: The X-Pro3 has a flip-down 3" color LCD monitor featuring approximately 1,620,000 dots and a 3:2 aspect ratio. The monitor has a special anti-reflective coating which reduces the surface reflectivity down to 0.2%. You can adjust the LCD brightness (-5 to +5) and LCD color hue (-5 to +5). The monitor also functions as a touch screen to let you take photographs, select functions, mute camera controls during movie recording, and playing back photos and videos. A small (1.28") color memory LCD sub-monitor displays the shooting settings when the monitor panel is closed.
Advanced Hybrid Viewfinder: The camera is equipped an Advanced Hybrid Viewfinder, which is switchable between an optical viewfinder and electronic viewfinder. When an XF series lens is mounted, the viewfinder magnification and frame size are automatically switched, depending upon the mounted lens. As you bring the camera up to your face, an eye sensor in the viewfinder will switch automatically to viewfinder mode. A built-in diopter allows you to adjust the viewfinder to your eyesight, either with or without glasses. Details of each type of viewfinder include the following:
- Optical Viewfinder (OVF): The Reverse Galilean Optical Viewfinder offers a wide field of view for maximum clarity with no shutter time lag. It has approximately 95% frame coverage and 0.52x magnification.
- Electronic Viewfinder (EVF): The 0.5" OLED Color Viewfinder (4:3) provides approximately 100% coverage and detailed shooting information with its 3,690,000 dots. You can preview focus, depth of field, exposure, and white balance before you shoot, and view the photo instantly after shooting.
Image Sensor/Processor: The X-Pro3 features the 23.5mm x 15.6mm APS-C sized, fourth-generation X-Trans CMOS 4 image sensor with 26.1-million effective pixels. The X-Processor 4 processor translates data captured by the complex color filter array pattern of the image sensor at lightning speed to achieve higher speed and precision than previous generations.
Dual Slots for Recording Media: The X-Pro3 has two slots for SD, SDHC, or SDXC memory cards up to 512 GB, including UHS-I and UHS-II compatible cards. No memory cards are included with the camera. You can choose from the following memory card options:
- Sequential (default): The card in the second slot is used only when the card in the first slot is full.
- Backup: Each picture is recorded twice, once to each card.
- RAW/JPEG: When the image quality setting is Fine+RAW or Normal+RAW, the RAW image will be saved to the card in slot 1 and the JPEG image to the card is slot 2.
Still Image Quality: The X-Pro3 records still images in JPEG format in 3:2, 16:9, and 1:1 aspect ratios in three sizes and two compression ratios (Fine or Normal). In addition, RAW images can be recorded from the raw, uncompressed image data from the camera's image sensor. You can also choose Lossless Compressed RAW images that reduces the file size with no loss of image data. RAW format images must be processed on a computer using the downloadable RAW File Converter EX application software. You can also shoot a RAW + JPEG image at the same time, with separate RAW and JPEG files recorded and stored.

High Speed Recording: The camera can record high frame rate Full HD movies that can be played back in slow motion. Video is recorded at 120 frames per second (100 fps for PAL). The footage can be played back at 60p at 1/2x speed, 30p at 1/4x speed, or 24p at 1/5x speed. High speed movies are recorded with no audio.
Shooting Modes: The Fujifilm X-Pro3 lets you set the shutter speed and aperture automatically or manually. The shutter speed is selected using the top-mounted dial, while the aperture setting is set on the aperture ring on the lens. The shutter speed and aperture settings combine for four shooting modes:
- Program AE (P): Both Shutter Speed and Aperture are set to Automatic. The camera chooses the shutter speed and aperture setting for optimal exposure. Other values that produce the same exposure can be selected with Program Shift.
- Shutter Priority AE (S): The Shutter Speed is user-selected (top-panel dial), while the Aperture is set to Automatic. The user chooses a faster shutter speed to "freeze" action or a slower speed to show motion. The camera selects the proper aperture setting to reach optimal exposure.
- Aperture Priority AE (A): The Aperture is set by the user (aperture ring on lens), and the shutter speed is set to Automatic. Choosing a large aperture results in a narrow depth of field, while a small aperture gives you a wide depth of field. The camera selects the proper shutter speed for the best exposure. The aperture range depends upon the lens attached to the camera.
- Manual (M): In Manual mode, the user selects both the shutter speed and aperture setting. This gives the user more creative opportunities to deliberately overexpose or underexpose the photos for a desired effect.
Mechanical and Electronic Shutter: The X-Pro3 is equipped with both a mechanical shutter and an electronic shutter. The mechanical shutter has a speed range of 15 minutes to 1/8000 second, and up to 60 minutes when Bulb shooting. When using the mechanical shutter, there is an audible sound. The electronic shutter gives you a wider range of shutter speeds, and can operate with a choice of three simulated shutter sounds with a choice of volume (high, medium, or low) or in total silence. The electronic shutter has a range of shutter speeds from 30 seconds to 1/32000 second. In the menu, you can choose the mechanical or the electronic shutter, or a combination of both.
ISO Sensitivity: You can manually set the camera's sensitivity to light by lifting and rotating the sensitivity dial, located on the top panel under the shutter speed dial. The higher the sensitivity setting, the better the camera is at reducing blur in poor lighting conditions, however, high settings can result in more noise in the recorded images. You can choose Auto Sensitivity to let the camera adjust the setting according to the shooting conditions. Settings for Auto 1, Auto 2, and Auto 3 can be stored separately. The Auto Sensitivity values range from ISO 160 to ISO 12800 in 1/3 steps. You can also set the ISO sensitivity manually from ISO 80 to ISO 51200, if desired.
White Balance: White balance is used to preserve natural colors under different types of lighting. You can select Auto, Direct Sunlight, Shade, "Daylight" fluorescent lamps, "Warm White" fluorescent lamps, "Cool White" fluorescent lamps, Incandescent light, and Underwater (requires waterproof case). In addition, you can measure for a white balance value or display and select from a list of color temperatures (from 2500K to 10000K).
Film Simulation: The X-Pro3 can simulate the effects of different kinds of film, including black-and-white. You can select one of the following options:
- Provia/Standard: standard color reproduction, ideal for a wide range of subjects.
- Velvia/Vivid: a high-contrast palette of saturated colors, suited for landscape or nature photos
- Astia/Soft: a soft-toned palette of less-saturated colors
- Classic Chrome: provides soft color and enhanced shadow contrast for a calm look
- Pro Negative Hi: offers slightly more contrast than Pro Negative Std, making it ideal for outdoor portraits.
- Pro Negative Std: a soft-toned palette. The range of hues available for skin tones is enhanced; a good choice for studio portraits.
- Classic Negative: provides enhanced color with hard tonality to increase image depth
- Eterna/Cinema: soft color and rich shadow tone suitible for film look movies
- Acros: lets you shoot in black-and-white in rich details with sharpness. Available with yellow, red, or green filters to deepen shades of gray
- Monochrome: standard black-and-white
- Monochrome + Y Filter: black-and-white pictures with slightly increased contrast; tones down the brightness of the sky
- Monochrome + R Filter: black-and-white picture with increased contrast; also tones down the brightness of the sky
- Monochrome + G Filter: softens skin tones in black-and-white photos
- Sepia: takes pictures in sepia tone
Color Space: Depending upon how you intend to use the image, you can choose the output color space at the general sRGB setting or the broader color rendition of Adobe RGB, recommended for commercial printing.
Clarity: The Clarity setting lets you increase the definition of photos while altering tones in highlights and shadows as little as possible. You can adjust the values from -5 to +5, with the lower values providing a softer effect and higher values increased definition.
Advanced Filters: When shooting still photos, you can apply varios digital filters for special effects. Advanced Filter options include: Toy Camera, Miniature, Pop Color, High-key, Low-key, Dynamic Tone, Soft Focus, and Partial Color (Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, or Purple).
Exposure Compensation: Using the dedicated Exposure Compensation dial on the top of the camera, you can alter the exposure from the value suggested by the camera from -3.0 to +3.0 EV in 1/3EV steps. Setting the dial to Custom (C), you can use the front command dial to set the values from -5.0 to +5.0 EV. When recording movies, you can adjust the exposure between -2.0 to +2.0 EV.
Bracketing: You can take a series of photos with varying settings for each picture. Bracketing options include:
- AE: Each time the shutter is pressed, the camera will take a number of shots (2-9), one using the metered value for exposure, the others overexposed or underexposed by the selected amount. You can set the camera to take up to 9 shots, either in a burst or one at a time, at a step of up to ±1/3EV to ±3EV.
- White Balance: Each time the shutter is pressed, the camera takes one shot and processes it to create three copies: one at the current white balance setting, one with fine-tuning increased by the selected amount, and the other with fine-tuning decreased by the selected amount. The bracketing amount can be set to ±1, ±2, or ±3.
- ISO: Each time the shutter is pressed, the camera will take one shot using the current sensitivity setting, and process it to create two additional copies, one with the sensitivity raised, and the other with the sensitivity lowered. The bracketing amount can be set to ±1/3, ±2/3, or ±1 EV.
- Film Simulation: Each time the shutter is released, the camera takes one shot and processes it to create copies with the film simulation settings selected.
- Dynamic Range: Each time the shutter is pressed, the camera will take three shots, each with different dynamic ranges: 100% for the first, 200% for the second, and 400% for the third.
- Focus: Each time the shutter button is pressed, the camera takes a series of photos, varying the focus with each shot. You can set the camera to use auto bracketing or manual bracketing. If manual is chosen, you can set the number of frames, the amount of focus changes, and the interval between shots.
Continuous Shooting: You can capture a series of pictures using the Continuous Shooting (Burst) mode. In the menu, you can select the mechanical shutter or the electronic shutter. The maximum number of images and the frame rate are as follows:
|Shutter Type||Frame Rate||Maximum Number of Images|
|JPEG||Lossless Compression RAW||Uncompressed RAW|
|3.0 fps||endless||endless|| |
Multiple Exposures: You can create a photograph that combines multiple exposures (up to 9). You can choose the method the camera uses to combine the shots: Additive, Average, Bright, or Dark.
Interval Timer Shooting: The camera can take photos automatically at a preset interval. During setup, you can set the number of shots (1 to 999, infinite), the interval between shots (1 sec to 24 hours), and the start waiting time (1 sec to 24 hours). With Exposure Smoothing enabled, the camera will automatically adjust the exposure during interval timer photography to prevent it from dramatically changing between shots.
Self-timer: The camera gives you the choice of a 10-second or 2-second self timer. The 10 second self timer is recommended for self portraits, while the 2-second self timer is used to reduce blur caused by the camera moving when the shutter button is pressed.
Focus Modes: The camera lets you choose how the camera focuses. The camera uses an Intelligent Hybrid AF with TTL Contrast and TTL Phase Detection Auto Focusing. You can select Single AF, Continuous AF, or Manual Focus using the focus ring on the attached lens.
Focus Area: You can choose the AF Area for Single and Continuous Focus modes using the following methods:
- Single Point: The camera focuses on the subject in the selected focus point.
- Zone: The camera focuses on the subject in the selected focus zone. Focus zones include multiple focus points to make it easier to focus on moving subjects. Zones consist of 3x3, 5x5, or 7x7 focus point zones on a 13x9 grid.
- Wide/Tracking: In Single AF, the camera automatically focuses on high-contrast subjects, and the areas in focus are shown in the display. In Continuous AF, the camera tracks focus on the subject while the shutter button is pressed halfway.
- All: Using the rear command dial, you can choose between Single Point, Zone, or Wide Tracking AF Area mode.
Manual Focus Points: You can choose the number of focus points available for focus-point selection in manual focus mode or in Single Point AF. The options are 117 points in a 9 x 13 point grid, or 425 points in a 17 x 25 point grid.
