FUJIFILM Corporation (President: Shigehiro Nakajima) will be releasing another new firmware upgrade for its flagship Fujifilm X-Pro1 compact system camera on November 28th which will offer users enhancements to operability and functionality. This latest firmware upgrade is being released in response to customer demand and will offer X-Pro1 users the chance to update their model to incorporate functionality available on the most recent X series cameras launched in October 2013. The X-Pro1 is set to continue as the company’s flagship X series model, and Fujifilm is striving to keep the level of technology offered on this product as up to date as possible so that purchasers of the X-Pro1 will have greater longevity of use.[Release date of the new firmware]5th December 2013 (Thu.) GMT 05:00/JST 14:00[Firmware version]FUJIFILM X-Pro1: Ver. 3.10[Main contents of the firmware update] 1. Improve the cover range and accuracy of the bright frame in the OVF The cover range of the bright frame displaying the shooting area in the optical viewfinder has been improved so that a field of view closer to the actual image can be checked. By maintaining the position of the bright frame with parallax compensation during AF lock, the shooting area can be checked even when letting go of the shutter release. 2. See the exposure setting in live-view and histogram The images and histogram will reflect current exposure levels (with the shutter speed and aperture set during manual exposure also displayed on the image). In scenarios where the live view and the final shot will appear differently, eg: when using flash, this setting can be turned off. 3. Aperture and shutter speed can be changed once AE lock is selected The aperture or shutter speed can be changed while maintaining exposure (EV value) with the AE lock button. The photographer has the ability to tweak settings down to the very last moment before shooting. 4. The default and maximum sensitivity and minimum shutter speed can be set when ISO AUTO is selected When selecting “AUTO” in the ISO setting, users can also set standard ISO, Maximum ISO and a low-speed shutter limit. The Low-speed shutter limit has been extended to 1/500 seconds. 5. New fuctionality allowing you to edit image filenames An image filename (DSCF***) is automatically allocated to each picture when shooting, this can now be changed to your filename of choice.* This added functionality is useful when organising the images after shooting, and sorting the images into groups. * It can be changed to a 4-letter filename when selecting “sRGB” and a 3-letter filename when selecting “Adobe RGB” for the color space. 6. Change of numbering for images shot using continuous shooting When shooting using continuous shooting, only the first image is currently displayed in full screen and subsequent frames are displayed in small on the bottom right, and the file number was set as “S+7-digit number”. With the new firmware, all frames in continuous shooting are displayed as full screen shots in playback. The file number has also been altered to follow numerically as per standard single shots, thereby allowing uniform management of images after shooting. 7. Improvement of RAW file conversion function When developing RAF images in-camera using the built-in RAW file converter, the firmware upgrade improves the flow by taking you back to the original RAF image once the conversion has been done, whereas before it left you with the converted JPG file on screen and the user had to go back to the next RAF file manually.Details on improvements 2, 3, 4 and 5 are available in the operation manual on the support page below.Please visit the following URL for details on other changes.[Firmware download]http://www.fujifilm.com/support/digital_cameras/software/ * This firmware is exclusive to the FUJIFILM X-Pro1.

Since my earliest adventures in photography and post work, I have been drawn to the “pastel look” – a light, airy style with soft colors, glowy brightness, and subdued contrasts. Achieving this with my digital images required a lot of time and patience, and as I discovered, it was a rather difficult look to get right. When I first discovered film, I found there was a similar trend among film photographers (specifically in the wedding industry) towards a pastel color palette. If you peruse the Internet for film wedding photography, you’ll find that a bright pastel look is a common theme - and to achieve it, you’ll see a combination that repeats over and over: Contax 645 with the Zeiss 80mm f/2.0, Fujifilm Pro 400H, and scanning and processing by a reputable pro photo lab. While similar effects are had using other cameras and films, the results of this particular combination have become almost an almost instantly recognizable look. Many of the world’s top wedding photographers, such as Jose Villa or Elizabeth Messina, have made this look very popular.....

My three Fuji X cameras on a photo tour : 10 things I like about them | Harry Fisch

My three Fuji X cameras on a photo tour : 10 things I like about them | Harry Fisch | Camera Porn | Scoop.it

I organize photo tours and I own three Fuji cameras: the X-100, the X-Pro1 and an EX. I recently purchased a Nikon D-600. I love the Fuji X-Pro1 and my only regret to this day is the fact  that it can’t be the only camera I use in my work. With the Fuji X-Pro1 I won (and then lost) the 2012 National Geographic Photo Contest and ended up as a finalist of the Sony World Photography Awards , besides two Juror Awards of Merit at the Grand Prix de la Découverte 2013. I really cannot speak ill of the camera... Why, after twenty years of staying put, am I selling a Canon 5D, buying three Fujis and then a Nikon? It's been something gradual and from my point of view, something necessary.......
