Report: Fujifilm is the first camera company to add computational photography to a professional camera (X-Pro3)




FujiAddict spotted some interesting bits of information in today's Fuji X-Pro3 leak:

It looks like Fujifilm is the first camera company adding computational photography to a professional camera: “The camera handles multiple exposures of up to 9 frames in the Additive, Average, Comparative Bright or Comparative Dark mode to combine images taken from multiple viewpoints or at different times into a single image. You can apply different Film Simulation modes to each of the frames to create a multi-layered collage."  Just based on the leaked document it doesn’t sound like it will be as advanced as a modern smartphone like the iPhone 11 Pro, but since the X-Pro3 will be very JPEG centric it makes sense to start stacking photos for additional JPEG data as long as it is done intelligently. I’m curious to see how well this new feature works in use, but I do not think it will convince RAW shooters to switch back to JPEG.

FujiAddict also created a nice comparison between the upcoming X-Pro3 with the current X-Pro2 and X-T3 camera models:


The Fuji X-Pro3 will be announced on October 23
