Fujifilm’s 26.1MP X-Pro3 Digital Camera Meshes Modern Tech With Vintage Style

Fujifilm is as classic as it gets when it comes to photographic lineage, and after etching its name into history with the production of the industry’s most lauded film cameras, it’s made a steady transition into the realm of digital. Fuji’s latest project comes in the form of the X-Pro3, a nostalgic camera that pays homage to the company’s past, while integrating a handful of modern updates to keep things fresh, and functional.

The Fujifilm X-Pro3 adopts a vintage look that’s immediately recognizable among photography’s classic crowd, giving it a leg up on more contemporary models that depart heavily from the camera maker’s age-old aesthetic. To achieve this, the X-Pro3 has a hidden touchscreen that takes on the appearance of an E-Ink panel — a “window” on older cameras where photographers would tape specifics about the film being used inside. But the device’s durable, and water-resistant, titanium, black, or Duratect exterior marks the extent of its rustic adoration. Inside, you’ll find a powerful back-illuminated 26.1MP X-Trans CMOS 4 sensor and an X-Processor 4 image processor, allowing shooters to film 4K video, utilize in-camera HDR, and channel a negative film simulation mode that pays homage to the medium of old. If you’re looking for a classic camera chassis that can stand on its own against today’s most viable platforms, look no further than the $1,800 Fujifilm X-Pro3.
