If rangefinder-style cameras are your kind of thing but you don’t want to spend the money or have the money for a Leica, Fujifilm’s X-Pro series comes pretty close. In fact, it seems that we might be able to expect to see a new X-Pro camera later this year as it has been rumored that the X-Pro3, successor to the X-Pro2 which was launched in 2016, could be coming in the fall of 2019.
In addition to the rumor that it could launch this fall, Nokishita Camera recently tweeted that an unknown Fujifilm camera has been registered with the model number FF190002, leading to speculation that it could be the X-Pro3. While there is a possibility that it could be the X-H2, it is most likely the X-Pro3 because the X-H2 is said to only arrive in 2020.
This is not the first time we’ve heard of the X-Pro3 because just last month, the alleged specs of the camera was revealed. For those who missed our previous report, the X-Pro3 is rumored to come with a 24MP/26.1MP X-Trans CMOS sensor, the X-Processor 4, 4K video recording at 60fps, weather sealing, and the best part is that it will be borrowing a feature from the X-H1 in the form of in-body image stabilization.

Take it with a grain of salt for now, but if the fall launch is true, we should have more details in the coming months.
