Fujifilm X-Pro3 Discontinued but Not Because Fujifilm X-Pro4 is Coming – REPORT

Some reports are appearing that indicate how the the Fujifilm X-Pro3 has been discontinued.

The first one comes from India, where a fellow X shooter looking for an X-Pro3 spoke to a Fujifilm distributor, who was informed by the regional Fujifilm sales person that the Fujifilm X-Pro3 is discontinued [see screenshot above].

Another report comes from a Swiss Fujifilm shooter, who got told the same by a Swiss distributor (X-Pro3 no longer in production), with the addition that no Fujifilm X-Pro4 is in the pipeline.

Speculations are rising, and so far here are the options I see.

  1. Fujifilm X-Pro4 is coming
  2. Fujifilm X-Pro3 simply is not selling well enough anymore and the parts shortage that is still going on forced Fujifilm to stop production on lower selling models
  3. The class action lawsuit the X-Pro3 is suffering is forcing Fujifilm to stop production

What’s your most likely scenario?

If you ask me, I’d go for Nr.2. But the option that would make me most happy is the Nr.1 of course :)

Fujifilm X-Pro3: Class-action Lawsuit Filed for Falsy Advertising ‘Reliable Durability’

Petapixel reports that photographer Jethro Inong has sued Fujifilm North America Corporation for falsy advertising the “reliable durability” of the Fujifilm X-Pro3.

The origin of the alleged lack of durability are “defective ribbon connector cables.”

Jethro claims the X-Pro3 is not “durable, capable of functioning reliably and remaining in proper working condition for years to come”.

This defect in turn caused the viewfinder(s) and/or the LCD touchscreen to glitch or stop working altogether, affecting the function and capabilities of the device,

Petapixel also links to multiple threads and stories about the issue.

You can read the full lawsuit here and the report of Petapixel here.

My take?

Well, my first reaction was that if I go in forums and look for just any camera I can think of, I will find plenty of complaints about issues and what not. So pretty much every company could get sued all the time. But for example I can’t remember Sony being sued for advertising their camera as “weather sealed”, despite plenty of reports about horrible weather sealing.

But we live in a system where one can sue anybody for whatever reason. So it’s Jethro’s right and if he thinks it is worth the effort, so be it. We trust in the justice system and we know the outcome of this lawsuit will be fair and just.

Fujifilm X-T4 Dynamic Range Data (vs X-T3, X-Pro3)

Photons to Photos has published its Fujifilm X-T4 dynamic range measurement data.

The Fujifilm X-T4 basically performs identical to the X-T3. The Fujifilm X-Pro3 seems to be superior, but as Blill Claff from PTP explained to us:

The X-Pro3 appears to have improved PDR but it is an illusion.

It’s well known that Fuji implements the ISO setting in an unusual way.
In this case they have given ISO 320 to ISO 12800 an addition 1 stop boost.

Fuji uses a proprietary Exif tag called “Raw Exposure Bias” to indicate how much they have shifted the raw data from “standard”.

Adjusted in Excel for Raw Exposure Bias we see that the X-Pro3 and X-T3 are essentially identical. (They shift to dual conversion gain at a slightly different point).
