Viltrox has just issued an official statement that some of their lenses can damage your Fujifilm X-Pro3. So, if you use this camera, you might not want to pair it with Viltrox 23mm f/1.4, Viltrox 33mm f/1.4, and Viltrox 85mm f/1.8.
I shoot about 50% film and 50% digital these days. For digital, I shoot with the Fujifilm X series cameras and lenses. Fujifilm cameras appealed to me several years ago because of the retro styling and film camera like controls for shutter speed, ISO and aperture. I also loved the ability to use Fujifilm film emulsion filters on the in-camera jpgs such as Velvia, Acros, Provia, Astia, Classic Chrome and PRO Neg to name a few.
Recently, Fujifilm released its newest camera in the X-Pro lineup, the Fujifilm X-Pro 3. It offers a number of improvements over previous models, and also comes with a complete redesign that hasn’t been accepted entirely positively by everybody. But as part of Fuji’s X-Pro lineup, it’s a formidable camera. We took time to speak to Fujifilm at PhotoPlus 2019 to find out more about it.
The release of the Fuji X-Pro3 this morning came as a bit of a surprise to me; not what was unveiled, but the general reception to it. So many comments (yes, I know you’re not supposed to read the comments) of ridicule and annoyance were not what I was expecting. And as I read them (which I promise not to do again) I noticed an underlying theme that was a bit worrying.
There are many types of cameras available to us as photographers. I am not speaking about specific brands like Nikon, Canon, or Sony, but rather the approach and intentions companies currently have in regards to design language and intended function. Cameras like the Nikon Df, Hasselblad X1D and the Fuji X-Pro3 offer photographers a different approach to creating images.
Fujifilm announced the new X-Pro3 camera during the Fujifilm X Summit in Shibuya, Japan last month. The camera is now officially out and ready for preorders, and it brings some improvements over the previous models. But, it also comes with the redesign which relies on old film cameras and combines them with modern digital photography.
During the Fujifilm X Summit in Shibuya, Japan last weekend, Fujifilm announced the X-Pro3 camera. It’s coming in three variants, all made from titanium for extra durability. It will be redesigned, so it comes with a hidden tilting LCD display. Fujifilm is introducing a few more improvements over the previous models, so let’s dive in and see what we can expect from the X-Pro3.
