DPR: Fujifilm X-Pro3 Review – Brings Home Silver Award


The Fujifilm X-Pro3 has been a controversial release that photographers seem to love or hate, but one thing is certain the camera is unique. Unique in a good or bad way is up to you, but DPReview released their review of the X-Pro3 and gave it a Silver award so the controversial back screen didn’t affect its score much. You can read the full review here or just check out the summary here.

What we like What we don’t
  • Excellent image quality
  • Range of attractive film/color modes
  • Optical viewfinder gives interesting experience
  • Electronic viewfinder further boosts flexibility
  • Flip-down screen excellent for waist-level shooting
  • Attractive, detailed 4K video
  • USB charging is useful
  • Faux film stock sub monitor is undeniably cool
  • Optical finder doesn’t work as well with wide or long lenses as predecessor
  • Obscured rear screen limits some styles of shooting
  • AF point indication in OVF makes near-to-far parallax shift unpredictable
  • Some lenses (particularly the F1.4s) aren’t especially fast to focus, undermining the the immediacy of street shooting
  • Face/Eye detection mode a little prone to false-positives and requires input if your subject temporarily turns away
  • ISO dial is more decorative than utilitarian
