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 :)

DPRTV and Ted Forbes 2023 Predictions: Fujifilm X-Pro4 and Dedicated Video Camera

DPRTV teamed up with Ted Forbes to predict the future of the Fujifilm system for 2023.

They predict two cameras:

  • Fujifilm X-Pro4 with 40MP
  • dedicated video camera

I won’t make any comment on anything at the moment, because as you can imagine, I am looking deep into 2023 already, and when the time has come and all the checks are done, I will drop 100% accurate rumors for you.

So for now take their predictions as what they are: fun speculations and wishes.

The FujiRumors community has a clear idea on what they want for 2023.

For the X series the most wished camera is indeed the Fujifilm X-Pro4 followed by the Fujifilm X100VI (or X100Vs or X200 or however Fujifilm is going to call the Fujifilm X100V successor).

For the GFX series, the top wish could be summed up with one word: speed!

Fujifilm X-H2 in 2022 Will Be FIRST X Series Camera with New Sensor and Processor

Here is what we know thanks to our rumors:

Now, since an illustrious Fujifilm managers talked about a breakthrough to achieve with Fujifilm X-H2, we all expected the Fujifilm X-H2 to feature a new sensor and processor.

But some readers contacted recently, asking me if maybe the first camera to introduce the new sensor and processor will be the X-Pro4, followed by the X-H2 later on.

And I understand where this comes from. It happened in the past that Fujifilm used the X-Pro line to introduce new platforms (X-Pro1 and X-Pro2).

Well, today I’d like to clarify that and say that the Fujifilm X-H2 will be Fujifilm’s first X series camera to introduce the new sensor and processor platform, and not the X-Pro4.

But attention: the Fujifilm X-H2 is still far away, and we will not get it until some point in 2022.

Fujifilm is crafting a monstrous camera and they are not allowed to fail. This means that they will take all the time they need to release real stunner, confident of the fact that in the meantime sales of X-T series, X-S10 and X100V cameras will keep up going strong, allowing Fujifilm not to hurry with the X-H2.

As one of our trusted sources said: it will be a long wait, but it will be well worth it.
