The Fuji X - Pro 3 finally gets updated to Fujifilm ' s latest tech and features a unique status display. See our Fuji X - Pro 3 hands-on preview for all the details! And the X - Pro 3 also has an uprated, hybrid autofocus system which can not only focus in near darkness , but also now locate your subjects' eyes

Fujifilm has officially unveiled the X-Pro3, the latest in its esoteric X-Pro lineup aimed at street photographers and photojournalists. Teased last month, it has a number of eccentric features, including a 3.5-inch, 1.65-million dot rear display that you can't even see without flipping down. Otherwise, it only shows the shutter speed, aperture and other basic information, or the film simulation if you're using one.

The idea is to free the photographer from distractions and help them "stay in the moment," as Fujifilm puts it. "With your mind and your eye always on the scene in front of you rather than the scene you've just shot, you can find a connection not just with your subject, but also with your art," the company wrote in a press release.

Fujifilm's entry-level X-A7 comes with 4K video and face detection

Fujifilm's entry-level X-A7 comes with 4K video and face detection Fujifilm has unveiled the entry-level X-A7 with some key new features that make it a nice upgrade over its predecessor, the X-A5. It packs Fujifilm's latest 24.2-megapixel CMOS sensor and has 8.5 times as many phase-detect pixels as its previous entry-level model, the X-A5, for starters. That gives it much faster autofocus speeds and quick face detection, though burst shooting speeds remain at 6 fps. For video, the X-A7 can now handle 4K at 30 fps rather than being hobbled at 15fps like the last model, and Fujifilm said it has less rolling shutter, too (a possible jab at Sony). 1080p shooting speeds are limited to 60 fps, however.

The Fujifilm X - Pro 3 wish list is now on FujiRumors. Let your imagination soar free and tell us what you want to see in the Fujifilm X - Pro 3 . Well guys, in the Fuji world, rangefinder cameras like the Fujifilm X - Pro and X-E line, do not sell nearly as well as their SLR-like brothers, such as the X-T20 or the new

The Fujifilm X - Pro 3 will be announced October 23 at 1 AM New York time (7AM Berlin time). complete hybrid viewfinder re-design. OVF has increased clarity, reduced distortion, and wider angle

If that's not weird enough for you, another selling point is the upgraded optical/electronic hybrid display. In rangefinder mode, you're looking through an optical, rather than an electronic display. Because it's offset from the lens, your subject will always appear at the wrong size and angle. Once you get used to it though (and use the parallax aids), you can theoretically shoot more quickly. If you'd rather an electronic view, it transforms into a fast and clear 3.69-million dot, 200 Hz OLED EVF.

Otherwise, the X-Pro3 specs line up with recent Fujifilm models. Like the X-T3, it has a 26.1-megapixel X-Trans4 sensor and quad-core X-Processor 4 imaging engine. Fujifilm has yet to mention the total number of autofocus points, but it said that the AF will function in near pitch darkness at -6 EV, matching or even beating what Nikon's full-frame Z 6 can do. As with the X-T3 and other X-Trans4 models, it should shoot well in low light, with an ISO range of 160-12,800 or 80-51,200 (expanded).

Adobe adds new AI tools in Photoshop and Premiere Elements 2020

  Adobe adds new AI tools in Photoshop and Premiere Elements 2020 Adobe Photoshop and Premiere Elements 2020 are now available, and both have some new AI-enabled features. The simplified versions of the company's flagship creative applications help amateurs edit high-quality photos and videos, and with the new Sensei-powered tasks, they're easier to use. The full-featured versions of Photoshop and Premiere can be overwhelming, and the methods to reach a desired outcome are rarely obvious. In other words, you really have to know what you're doing.

Fujifilm ' s X - Pro series has always been a bit different: it Fujifilm introduces the X - PRO 3 – a return to the craft and heart of Created with street photographers and photojournalists in mind, the features of the X - Pro 3 are designed to keep the photographer focused on the subject.

But by focusing the X - Pro 3 so narrowly, Fujifilm might be putting off fans of its prior models, which gave you retro controls and design, but without compromising on so much of the digital conveniences of modern photography. Yes, the X - Pro 3 is just as capable as any other modern digital camera in terms

While the X-Pro3 will give pro photographers maximum control, it's also using smartphone-like AI tricks to make things easier. The new HDR mode will automatically capture multiple shots and marry them in-camera "to produce an increased dynamic range in the image when compared to standard photo capabilities," the company told Engadget. At the same time, the feature works "without causing exaggerated amplification of color tones."

You get the usual array of (excellent) film simulations like Velvia, Eterna and Monochrome, but with the X-Pro3, Fujifilm has introduced two new ones: Classic Neg. and Monochromatic Color. The latter lets you choose a key color from a palette of warm/cool or magenta/green hues to give photos a personal touch. And if you really want to fine tune the look of photos, you can now adjust shadows and highlights on the tonal curve.

On the video side, it can't match the 60fps, 10-bit 4K of the X-T3 because it's really not designed for that. Still, you get up to DCI 4K (4,096 x 2,160) video at 30 fps or 1080p at 120 fps max. The display flips down 180 degrees, but because it's tilted backwards (for that whole "stay in the moment" thing), you can't really use it for vlogging or selfies. There's a 2.5mm microphone port, but no headphone jack.

As a nod to its target professional users, the X-Pro3 is extensively weather-sealed, has titanium top/bottom plates and uses "cold plasma" tech for a scratch-resistant finish on the "Dura" models. That makes it "one of the most durable camera bodies in Fujifilm camera history," the company said. Other features include a single SDXC UHS II memory slot and USB-C 3.1 Gen1 slot.

This is not a camera for everyone, but it's a strong draw for serious photographers with specific needs. The Fujifilm X-Pro3 will go on sale in late Fall 2019 for $1,800 in black, or $2,000 in Dura Black or Dura Silver.

Xiaomi unveils its 108-megapixel smartphone .
Xiaomi has unveiled the CC9 Pro smartphone that has one of the highest-resolution cameras -- period -- that you can buy. For instance, the 108-megapixel wide-angle camera has more resolution than Fujifilm's 102-megapixel GFX 100 medium format camera, which has a sensor about 15 times larger. On top of that, the CC9 Pro has four other rear cameras: a 5-megapixel 5x telephoto, 12-megapixel 2x telephoto, 20-megapixel ultra wide-angle lens and a 2-megapixel macro camera with big 1.75um pixels. As we reported earlier, Samsung developed the 108-megpixel ISOCELL Bright HMX sensor in conjunction with Xiaomi. As a 1/1.
