About Fujifilm X-Pro1

The Fujifilm X-Pro1 Ergonomic Extension Kit is an accessory kit containing a thumb rest and a soft shutter release. The thumb rest attaches to your camera via the hot shoe and utilizes silicone rubber inserts to dampen vibrations and provide stable, protected contact with the camera. This grip provides a more ergonomic structure to the camera, allowing for greater one-handed operation as well as more balance and less grip pressure required when shooting. The 22deg. beveled rest also offers more protection to the exposure compensation dial, reducing the chance of accidentally changing its position.

The soft shutter release is a simple design that permits easier releasing of the shutter release button thus avoiding unnecessary camera shake. This button screws into the cable release socket of your camera and creates an extended, soft release button.

This thumb grip completely transforms the handling of the Fuji X-Pro1. I was constantly unintentionally hitting a button on the back of the camera with my right thumb. This grip makes the camera easier to hold and operate. Highly recommended.

Twice as good as a Leica at 1/8 the cost

By

from Macon, Georgia  -  Photography Student

Simply the best apsc sensor available today. The range finder styling, and the size and weight of this camera suits my needs perfectly. Fuji's support through firmware updates has improved the camera's functionality immensely since its introduction. The wide range of Fuji X mount lenses makes this a true system camera body.

Like

By

from Connecticut  -  Photography Student

I wanted this camera when it was first released, but it was beyond reach. Lately with the price dropping and the bundled lens discounts, I decided to purchase it - even though it's now two-year old technology. The most obvious aged-technology is the EVF. It's a bit dated (already). But the OVF is beautiful and if that's your thing, then the EVF is a moot point. Another oft "complaint" is the slow (by today's standards) auto-focus. The latest firmware upgrades have helped quite a bit here (make sure you upgrade both body and lens). I'm guessing if you want to photograph very fast action or video, this camera isn't for you. But not all cameras are for everyone. The camera does take some getting used to, but I'm finding it's worth the patience. It's also a little bigger than some of the other mirror-less cameras, but I like the size, personally.

Still learning

By

from Shoreline, Connecticut  -  Photo Enthusiast

Admittedly, I'm still learning the X-Pro1. It was a recent purchase, recognizing that it's two-year old technology. This is reflected in the slower than state-of-the-art AF, and the Electronic Viewfinder resolution and updating speed. However, if you want the hybrid OVF/EVF, along with the ability to change lenses, it's still the only game in town. From what little I've shot with it thus far, the image quality is amazing. I've been mainly doing street photography, and I do feel there's a learning curve there - at least in terms of using a different technique than what I've been accustomed to using. I agree with the chorus of people wishing the X-Pro1 had the innards of the X100S and the X-E2, but then again, the current price of the X-Pro1 is quite good. Even better if you're able to bundle it with discounts on the lenses - as I did with the Holiday specials.

Fantastic!

By

from Sacramento, CA  -  Photo Enthusiast

Love this camera! It is compact, but has a great feel. The controls are easy to use, and the menu system is good. The Q button allows a very quick way to change the settings. The images are great! I take this camera everywhere. Its small and quiet, and does not impose its presence like a DSLR with a moderate zoom lens. Cons: battery life is short relative to my Canon 5DIII. I don't like the battery charger, as it does not confirm the battery is charged. Carry an extra battery. I would not use this for sports or action, but for street and people, it is superb. I love my Canon 5DIII, but the X Pro-1 is now my go to camera! Get one...you will love it.

I love this camera

By

from Portland, Oregon  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I've been shooting with the Fujifilm X100 for about two years and absolutely love the camera, but I've had my eye on the X Pro-1. The X Pro-1 is perfectly sized and feels great in my hands. The controls are positioned nicely, and the Q menu is about the slickest way to present common menu items I've seen yet. I like the way the spot-metering adjustment are shown live on-screen while composing a shot. The camera's images are about as close to film as I've ever seen from a digital camera. The new 3.01 firmware upgrades makes focusing rather quick - not pro DSLR quick, but resectable. It also added pixel peeking for manual focus which is nice too. I carry the X100 everywhere I go except on weekends when I'm out and about with my X Pro-1.

Mirrorless camera

By

from Salem Oregon  -  Photo Enthusiast

Most important feature for me is its stunning low light capabilities. Shoot into a dark closet on auto ISO and the closet is perfectly lit as if in daylight. Learning curve steep and there are significant differences from DSLR. Not smaller or lighter than some DSLRs. It's as heavy as my D5000 and nearly as bulky.

X PRo 1 Image Quality is as great as ...

By

from Great Neck, NY  -  Photo Enthusiast

I replaced my first X PRo1 and lenses that went swimming accidently. What more can I say than I bought it again after a year! In comparison to my Canon 5D, I had images taken by myself with the 5D and my wife using the Pro and upon enlarging, the X Pro 50mm f1.4 lens images appear sharper. The unit is lighter than the Canon but still feels substantial and I am awaiting the X 100S as well. I now have teh 18-55 zoom adn am testing and getting used to that.

A camera that gets out of your way

By

from St. Louis  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I really miss a manual, light weight travel camera. I had a Canon 7D and it was driving me crazy and I had almost stopped using it because it was such a pain. The X-Pro has saved me. Light weight with quality lenes or the X mount that allows you to use M base lenes opening a new world of possibilities. Simple shutter setting and yes folks, an aperture ring right on lens!!! No more dials and menus to fiddle with. A manual focus that works like a charm with an enlarged image in the view finder that allows you to get a sharp focus. If you are an old photographer like me, you will love a camera that gets out of your way and lets you do your job or just have fun.

Pro Level -with Leica Image quality!

By

from New York City  -  Pro Photographer

As a working Professional in NYC,I rely on my camera's to provide me with near perfect image quality, after all that is the bottom line. And I require that my cameras are easy to use, and built tough to take the day to day grind that working in NYC as a working photographer entails. The bottom line is that The Fuji X-Pro 1 with the 35mm f/1.4 lens is simply stunning. The images are nothing short of superb,and easily compare with Top of the Line Canon L series glass and the Top of the line Nikon glass as well as Sony Zeiss glass. The rangefinderesque look and feel of the camera and the very high build quality make it very easy to use and carry.Shaving off pounds to my gear. One extra nice feature is that in spring of 2013 ZEISS is coming out with 3-5 AF lens specific to The Fuji X-Pro and they will be amazing. The Fuji X-Pro-1 is in my opinion,a game changer camera, and bodes well for getting razor sharp images and great color from a smaller lighter camera.
