The rear screen(s)

The X-Pro3 features a unique dual-screen system, which is intended to both encourage use of the hybrid optical / electronic viewfinder (more on that later) and inspire a bit of nostalgia.

The rear status panel, pictured here, defaults to showing you which film simulation you've chosen, as well as your white balance and ISO setting. The nostalgia sets in when you notice that the on-screen display changes depending on which film simulation you use, with looks that are inspired by the packaging of Fujifilm's classic film stocks. It's the digital equivalent of ripping a portion of the film packaging off the box and tucking it into a slot on the back of your camera - ah, the good 'ole days.

Though the legibility of the screen is reasonably good (despite fairly low resolution), it lacks a backlight, so you'll need to rely on ambient lighting to be able to make out what it's showing. Also, if you've programmed any custom buttons to change any of the options shown, be aware that the option you're changing doesn't become highlighted. So if you're still learning the camera, you may hit a custom button intending to change the ISO value, but end up changing the white balance instead.
