Fuji X-Pro 1: say hello to a new camera | From DSLR to the X-Pro 1 | Patrice Michellon

Fuji X-Pro 1: say hello to a new camera | From DSLR to the X-Pro 1 | Patrice Michellon | Fujifilm X | Scoop.it


I first saw and heard about the X-Pro 1 when Fuji presented their new camera at the 2012 CES (Consumer Electronic Show) in January. It looked good and seemed to be an interesting product (at least on paper) but as always with new products, the chances to test or even see the X-Pro 1 in stores before April were close to nil. Therefore I quickly forgot about it and continued to play with DLSRs. At that time my Canon 5D mkII and my beautiful EF 50mm f/1.2 were for sale. I was struggling with micro adjustments issues and poor AF performance. Despite the great user interface and the great specifications of both the camera and the lens, I always felt something was missing (talent maybe?). Anyway, it just didn't fit with me. Back to my first full frame love; the Nikon D700.

 

June 2012. The 5D2 is sold, I'm back in a store and come out of it with:

a Nikon D700a zoom lens (AF-S 24-70 f/2.8 G)three batteriesa flash (SB 900)2 filtersa grip (PDK 1) Yes! Five kilos of incredible gear in my bag, less money in my bank account but hey, I was ready to take pictures again!

 

September 2012. My summer book is ready to be printed on Blurb, it looks great but there's one thing; my eyes like what they see, my body screams: "Stop it! Never bring or carry a stone of gear with you again, especially when traveling! Ever!”.

 

The best camera is the one you have with you? Indeed. I wanted something small, discreet with the picture quality of a full frame camera. As it happens, one of the major retail stores in Paris had the Fuji X-Pro 1 and the three XF lenses available for testing. It took me 10 minutes to fall in love with it. Yes the AF sucked, yes manual focusing was useless and yes the OVF frames accuracy (especially with the 35mm) was dodgy. However the picture quality and colors that came out of such a small combo wiped out all the negatives. The Fuji X-Pro 1 was a no brainer as far as I’m concerned. Even better, Fuji announced a major firmware update for September 18th that would improve the autofocus capabilities quite dramatically....
