Combining feelings and colors Fuji X-Pro3 rangefinder camera review
Fuji X-Pro3 is a digital camera that takes into account both feelings and image quality. I believe many friends are full of curiosity about this camera. This is a camera without a display screen under normal conditions, and the film simulation effect of the camera makes the photos taken full of film flavor. Today we will take a look at the actual test of this camera.
The author believes that in the digital age, Fuji’s straight The color has always been excellent. Fuji’s film simulation is different from the film filters we use, unlike VSCO or the film presets in Lightroom, which are based on the colors obtained from Fuji’s real film. All settings are real from Fuji’s film color library. Because of this, Fujifilm’s film simulation has a high usability, and ordinary film filters, when applied to a large number of photos, always have the problem of poor color tone matching.
Of course, this Fuji camera, from the appearance, It is doomed to retro design. The most attractive place is the screen design on the back. The back screen of the digital camera uses a hidden LCD design. Under normal conditions, there is only a small 1.28-inch screen to display film simulation settings or as a shoulder screen to display shooting parameters. Currently, the screen of a digital camera is a standard configuration, and only a very small number of digital cameras use a screenless design. Fuji X-Pro3 is bold at this point.
Of course, the camera is not completely screenless, just The screen needs to be turned on for use.
This camera uses Fuji’s X-Trans sensor, with a body pixel of 26 million pixels, which is the same as the X-T3, so the image quality can be compared to the X-T3. The camera performs well in both low-sensitivity purity and high-sensitivity image quality.
For this camera, I give the camera 8.4 points score. Because the camera’s image quality is satisfactory, there is still room for improvement in focusing performance. In addition, although the hidden screen is unique, not everyone loves it, and it is inconvenient to shoot videos.
Second, camera appearance design
Fuji X-Pro3 has a unique appearance design. There are four important points here.
First, the top and bottom of the camera are made of titanium alloy. X-Pro3 has three colors, black, titanium gold and titanium crystal gray. All three colors use titanium alloy, but titanium gold and titanium crystal gray also use Derutect coating. This coating has extremely high hardness, so these two colors are not afraid of metal or stone scratches. It can be said to be The “Paintless” camera. Of course, these two colors are also more expensive.
The camera’s viewfinder also uses a photoelectric hybrid viewfinder, which can be switched freely between the electronic viewfinder and the optical viewfinder. When using an optical viewfinder, this is a standard rangefinder camera. Objects outside the wire frame can be easily observed in the viewfinder, so it is very suitable for street shooting. Using an electronic viewfinder to display the picture in real time is more conducive to controlling the exposure.
Compared with X-Pro2, a new generation The photoelectric hybrid viewfinder has greatly improved the viewfinder effect. The optical viewfinder uses a larger viewing angle and a higher eye point, which is more friendly to users who wear glasses. The resolution of the electronic viewfinder is increased to 3.69 million pixels, and it has a larger color gamut and is more sensitive to red.
Of course, the top priority of the camera is still this Block hidden LCD display. Under normal conditions, the camera screen is completely hidden, revealing a small 1.28-inch screen that can display the current film simulation settings, or as a shoulder screen. To unfold the screen, you need to fold the screen down 180 degrees to use it. In fact, this design is indeed very retro, but for users who are accustomed to screen framing and real-time playback of photos, this screen is not very convenient. If the side hinge can be used in the future, it may be more practical.
The camera uses dual SD card slots and has a USB charging function. It can be charged with a Type-C data cable, and the camera also has Wi-Fi. So although this is a retro-looking camera, it can be said that it has all the modern functions.
The last thing I want to say is this Fuji camera In addition to the appearance, the control is actually close to a film camera. For example, the sensitivity and shutter speed adjustment dial of this camera adopts the most classic composite design of film cameras. When adjusting the sensitivity, you need to lift the dial to rotate, and then you can modify the sensitivity setting.
3. Film simulation
Fuji’s film simulation is derived from Fuji’s official film color library. The new classic negative mode is actually derived from Fuji’s classic negative Superia 100. This film is also my favorite when I used a film camera. A film.
Fuji Classic Neg mode, the actual shooting effect is quite good . In actual shooting, the hue saturation is not high, but the tone is very tough. It is a film simulation suitable for sunny and cloudy days.
Fuji not only added a new film simulation this time, but also enhanced the in-camera color settings. For example, in the color mode, a color enhancement mode for blue is added.
In addition, the camera has added a curve adjustment inside the body. In general, the camera’s enhancement of colors mainly focuses on red and green, and its ability to enhance blue is weak. This time Fuji specifically emphasizes the blue color system, which is actually conducive to the shooting of landscape works.
In addition, in the monochrome mode, Fuji also Monochrome colors can be added, and the colors we need can be selected and integrated into the black and white film, which also improves the camera’s photo playability.
Four. Picture quality test
The native sensitivity of Fuji X-Pro3 is 160-51200, which is a high-sensitivity camera with good performance. Let’s take a look at the camera’s host sensitivity test.
The camera is relatively pure under ISO 3200 Picture performance, after exceeding ISO 3200, picture noise began to increase, but in actual shooting, in fact, ISO 6400 still has a high usability when shooting night scenes.
Next is the tolerance test, we used 0 to -6EV as the shooting range.
The latitude of Fuji cameras has always been good, X- The same is true for Pro3. The latitude performance of this camera is relatively excellent, with good image quality performance. The camera’s latitude is still good by increasing the exposure by 4 stops, so the camera has more room for post-processing.
5. Focus and video
The focus system of Fuji X-Pro3 can achieve -6EV low-light focus, which is a breakthrough for Fuji cameras. In addition, the camera is also equipped with facial recognition and human eye focusing, which is very helpful for the camera’s focusing performance.
In the actual test, in fact Fuji X- The focus performance of Pro3 is still relatively ideal, but the focus speed of the test lens I used is slow, so some tracking photos are out of focus. But the focusing performance of Fuji cameras is worthy of recognition.
Although this is a retro camera, it also has 4K 30p video shooting capabilities. Since the core of Fuji X-Pro3 is pure shooting fun, the video function of the camera is not the focus, and I did not specifically shoot video samples here.
We can see the video quality through a single 4K video image. Judging from the sample resolution, the 4K image quality of this Fujifilm camera is still quite satisfactory, with satisfactory details.
6. Samples and summary
For this Fuji camera, I am most satisfied with its film color. This camera has 11 kinds of film simulation settings in a broad category. The color attributes that other cameras do not have, especially the newly added classic negative film, have relatively low saturation and high contrast, which is a very classic negative film style.
The image quality of the camera is satisfactory, especially the high-sensitivity control noise is ideal, and it also has a good image quality performance when shooting at night. At the same time, the latitude of the camera is impressive. If you need to make a large post-adjustment, the adjustment space of the RAW file of this camera is quite large.
The camera’s focusing system, although very fast, The author believes that there is still room for improvement, especially in the recognition of focus tracking under low light, there is still room for improvement. But for daily shooting, the focusing speed of this camera is sufficient.
Finally, let’s take a look at more photos taken with this camera.
