Reviewers from rtings have found the following[***]:
The Fujifilm X-Pro3 is an interchangeable-lens mirrorless rangefinder-style camera with a unique hybrid optical and electronic viewfinder. This retro-inspired APS-C model has a reverse flip-out screen that encourages using this hybrid viewfinder in photography but can make it a bit unwieldy to shoot video. It offers impressive image quality and records sharp, clear footage in 4k and FHD. However, depending on your choice of camera settings and usage patterns, its battery life is only adequate.

Pros[**]
  • Excellent image quality in both 4k and FHD
  • Sharp, clear video
  • Weather-sealed OIS lens
Cons[**]
  • Low-resolution reverse flip-out screen
  • Lacks in-body stabilization

Sentiment Score[*] 87%
Reviewers from techradar have found the following[***]:
Fujifilm X-Pro3 is an APS-C mirrorless camera that offers a rangefinder-style shooting experience long favored by street photographers. It has an upgraded version of its hybrid viewfinder – which lets you switch between electronic and optical modes. There are also two new scratch-resistant, titanium versions of the camera that cost extra. The boldest and potentially the most polarizing addition, though, is a new ‘hidden’ LCD screen that folds inwards to face the camera.

Pros[**]
  • Sleek, minimalist design
  • New ‘hidden’ LCD screen
  • New scratch-resistant, titanium version
Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular

Reviewers from trustedreviews have found the following[***]:
Fujifilm X-Pro3 makes three big changes to its design. These are a new titanium coating (on the Dura Black and Dura Silver versions), an upgraded hybrid viewfinder, and that “hidden” LCD. When the screen is folded up (or hidden), you get a small secondary LCD on the rear. This can either show the film simulation mode you're in (which neatly looks like a retro film canister)

Pros[**]
  • Terrific hybrid viewfinder
  • Improved OVF
  • New “hidden” LCD
Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular

Reviewers from wired have found the following[***]:
Fujifilm's X-Pro3 is best suited to a very specific type of photographer. The main LCD screen on the back is hidden. In its place, there's a small LCD screen that imitates the little window on analog cameras that shows you what type of film is loaded inside.

Pros[**]
  • Stylish design
  • Large LCD screen
  • Fast autofocus
  • Compact and compact
Cons[**]
  • Lacks rear LCD
