Final Thoughts on the X-Pro 1…for now | Kate Lockhart

Final Thoughts on the X-Pro 1…for now | Kate Lockhart | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it


So, as I mentioned previously, I spent quite a bit of time this fall carrying the Fuji X-Pro 1 with me everywhere. There were two motivations for this. First, I wanted to spend more time with the camera in the hopes that I would get to know it better and feel more comfortable with it. And second, I wanted to get back into the habit of carrying a camera with me everywhere. I was pretty good about carrying the camera with me every time I went out. It’s small enough that size and weight weren’t ever an issue, and unobtrusive enough that I didn’t feel like a total tool having it hanging from my side. But notice I used the past tense. The fact is, even after a few weeks of carrying it with me everywhere, I still haven’t fallen in love with the X-Pro 1 like I did with the X100. Part of me feels guilty about that. It’s a very nice camera and I feel like Fuji got a lot of things really right about it – the manual controls, button layout, the new “Q” menu, excellent high ISO performance, great lenses – but for whatever reason I haven’t connected to it and it shows. The photos I’ve taken with it are just meh. So, while I hate lugging around my DSLR everywhere I go (so I don’t), when I feel like I really want or need to make great images I grab the Nikon. When portability matters more than anything else, that’s when I grab the X-Pro 1. And it seems like that’s how it’s going to be, at least for now.

I got hold of this lens recently and have been having a play.  I’m not a landscape photographer really but I still wanted this lens for weddings and to dabble a bit with landscape.  I also think its a pretty useful range to carry around with you, despite the relatively large size of the lens.  At the long end its a 36mm equivalent focal length and can be used to shoot people, and at the wide end, it can turn the ordinary into something a bit special because of the crazy wide angle.  Anyway, here are some shots, so far I love the lens and its a keeper for me......
