AI is Coming
Well, the Fujifilm X-Pro3 leaked massively here, and we compared the specs to the X-Pro2 here.
As FujiRumors rumored already in the months and weeks before, there is a lot happening on the firmware front, and we already told you to expect to get a major Kaizen firmware update also for the following camera X/GFX models.
It’s also no surprise, that the Fujifilm X-Pro3 will introduce first big steps into what is called “computational photography”, for example with the new HDR function:
the HDR shooting function combines multiple continuously shot images of different exposure levels to expand the dynamic range. The tool, designed to recreate the vast dynamic range of light conditions that exist in nature, produces natural tones without causing exaggerated amplification of colour tones.
Why is it no surprise?
Well, I remind you how back in April 2019, Fujifilm manager Toshihisa Iida said in this interview:
In 3 years, AI (artificial intelligence or computational photography) will become important part of photography
And if you are scared our cameras will turn into smartphones taking over all the control from your photography, then I’d like to reassure you, as Toshihisa Iida also said:
AI will not manage or control, but help photographers to take better images in an easier way
So, Fujifilm wants to offer plenty of computational photography features within 2022 in their cameras, and the Fujifilm X-Pro3 marks the start.
