The X-Pro3 comes with an old fashioned viewfinder called the “Advanced Hybrid Viewfinder”. Fujifilm offers an X-Processor 4 image processing chip. Additionally, the exterior of the X-Pro3 contains corrosion-resistant titanium and a magnesium-interior.

The small secondary screen can be set to a ‘classic’ mode which displays the selected film simulation mode which looks like the packaging icon of the corresponding photo film. Users can select ‘Standard’ mode on the LCD panel to see the current shutter speed, aperture and other shooting settings – all without opening the primary LCD monitor.

Fujifilm has removed the previous four-way controller set that was available on the X-Pro2. Instead, there are individual buttons for selecting the appropriate settings – just as a photographer adjusts images to a film camera. At the top, there are controls to adjust ISO settings and shutter speed

The Fujifilm X-Pro3 has a back-illuminated 26.1MP X-Trans CMOS 4 sensor powered by the X-Processor 4 image processing engine, which we saw in the Fujifilm X-T3 and X-T30 in the past. The camera also has an advanced hybrid viewfinder that can be enabled as an optical viewfinder (OVF) or electronic viewfinder (EVF).

To stimulate the color-negative film-like experience, the X-Pro3 has the classic neg mode added to the film simulation mode. There are also basic mirrorless camera functions such as HDR shooting and multiple exposures. Further, the X-Pro3 supports 4K video recording with a frame rate of 30fps.

For connectivity, the Fujifilm X-Pro3 has a USB Type-C port and a 2.5mm jack for microphone and wired remote connection. The camera also has Bluetooth support and has two UHS-II SD card slots.
