Fuji X-Pro1: 5 Reasons to Get Rid of a DSLR | Chi Brown

Fuji X-Pro1: 5 Reasons to Get Rid of a DSLR | Chi Brown | Fuji X Pro 1 News | Scoop.it


With the recent rumors about a new firmware update and lenses that will speed up focusing and boost performance, as well as the addition of a few new X series cameras coming to the Fuji line-up, I have begun to find it difficult to justify keeping more than one DSLR camera body. As it stands I own two Canon’s. A 5DMKII and, as a back up, the 7D. The decision to rid myself of the 7D would be an easy one if I didn’t depend on the video function on the both of these Canon bodies. If I only shot stills it would be a no-brainer. The 7D would be on Ebay!

X-E1 - the more affordable X-Pro1

 

The X-E1 is in essence a slimmed-down X-Pro1, with the large, complex and expensive hybrid finder replaced by a purely-electronic viewfinder. Not any old EVF though - it uses a 2.36M dot OLED unit, out-speccing the X-Pro1's 1.44M dot LCD finder. In return its rear screen is slightly downgraded in terms of both size and resolution, to a still-respectable 2.8" 460k dot LCD - according to Fujifilm this is necessary to keep the camera's size down. The result is a compact body that's broadly similar in size to both the much-loved FinePix X100, and its most obvious competitors like the E-M5 and NEX-7. The X-E1 gets a few new features relative to the X-Pro1, commensurate with its class. There's a little built-in pop-up flash, a 2.5mm stereo microphone socket for movie recording, and the ability to use an electronic shutter release cable via the USB port (in addition to the signature threaded shutter release button). But otherwise it's near-identical to the X-Pro1, using the same 16MP X-Trans CMOS sensor and EXR Pro image processor, and almost exactly the same control layout and interface....

Fuji X-Pro1 vs Fuji X-E1 | Techradar

Fuji X-Pro1 vs Fuji X-E1 | Techradar | Fuji X Pro 1 News | Scoop.it


Choosing between these two cameras is tricky, especially considering we don't yet know the official price of the X-E1. Fuji is squarely aiming its new camera at the mass market, which the X-Pro1, with its high price, was unable to appeal to. We can see the Fuji X-E1 becoming extremely popular with a large cross section of the camera-buying community. Existing Fuji X-Pro1 users will likely be tempted to add another body to their collection, while those who couldn't quite justify the price before will also find themselves lusting after this. When it comes to making a buying decision, it all comes down to whether you can live with using an electronic viewfinder only, or would prefer an optical device as well. The better screen and slight differences in design may also play a part in making a decision.

Rewiew of the Fuji XPRO 1 +M mount + Hexanon 35mm f/2 | Hugo Bernard

Rewiew of the Fuji XPRO 1 +M mount + Hexanon 35mm f/2 | Hugo Bernard | Fuji X Pro 1 News | Scoop.it

 

Just a quick review of a day with the fuji xpro1 with a leica like lens for street photography. I've tested it during two day , I've shot around 400 pictures.How to focus? In general the first question about the focusing. With the Xpro1 you have 3 ways to focus : The main screen : you can focus with the main screen, the resolution is high enough to focus precisely, the refresh rate is good even in low light. If you are really closed (less than 1.5m) to your subject and you want a very precise focus you have to use the magnification. The magnification (x10) it's easily accessible by a dial. It zoom on the center of the frame only, I've to admit that x10 is too much with a 35mm (50mm in FF). In street photography with 50mm (FF) you are rarely closely than 1.5 meter so you rarely use the magnification....

Fuji X-Pro1 with Nikon AF DC-Nikkor 135mm f/2D

Before I begin talking about the 135mm f/2 lens, I will explain why there is a the new title added to this series. This is the last of my Nikkor lenses that I will be writing about, the only other one being a “G” lens which will not work with the adapter I bought. After this posting, there will begin reviews of other third party lenses and their respective adapters. Not only will there be my thoughts on these “other” lenses, but I have invited other Fuji XP1 owners (as guests) to review their lenses. I would like to extend this invitation to everyone with a XP1 and third party lenses. The original intent that I had for creating this blog site, was because I had wanted to know before purchasing the Fuji XP1 myself, how it worked with third party lenses. There just wasn’t much out there at the time. Thus the first intention may have been personal, but I had hopes of it becoming more of a community share. So if anyone would like to participate in sharing your experiences using the Fuji XP1 with third party lenses, then write me at jim@jimgamblin.com. It makes the most sense to keep the format the same, i.e. one or several photos of the camera lens combination, the written personal experiences and some sample shots. There are plenty of technical reviews out there so I would like to keep this blog more in line with personal experiences, more emotional....

Fuji X-Pro1 – Further Thoughts | Andrew Newson

Fuji X-Pro1 – Further Thoughts | Andrew Newson | Fuji X Pro 1 News | Scoop.it


I’ve had the Fuji X-Pro1 since April 2012 and like anything it takes a while to really get to know it. So for this reason I wanted to add some further thoughts to my first blog post, the review of the X-Pro1. I have been impressed with the image quality of this camera from day 1, in fact beyond impressed, blown away sometimes. The resolution and detail that the sensor can record is really something else. Low light (high ISO) capability is really great. I just had this image printed at 18×12 inches as a digital c-type print on lustre paper. The shot was taken at ISO 1000 and you cannot see a spec of noise in the final print. The detail level is also great, you can see every leaf. The image was taken with the 18mm Fuji XF lens at f/2.5....
