Is the X-Pro1 for you? Only you can decide ... | Alex Lambrechts - Photographer | My X-pro1 | Scoop.it

I'm not saying this camera is perfect for everyone, it's just perfect for me, like I said there's nothing in my last few years of work (and play) that I couldn't have shot equal to or to higher quality, (and with more ease, specially stealth and lets not forget to mention how light and portable it is) with this camera....

Fuji X-Pro 1 autofocus trick | picabroad.com

The X-Pro 1 autofocus is surprisingly good at locking onto moving targets – humans, bicycles and cars can all be caught with relative ease. First, set the X-Pro on AF-S (NOT AF-C). The trick is to depress the shutter in one go – the camera may take 1/4 of a second to sort out the focus, but it feels like there is some sort of an algorithm that compensates for that 1/4 second (or however long focusing takes) and puts the plane of focus into the right position.
If you’ve been brought up on DSLRs the overwhelming urge is to half press the shutter to get focus – do this on the X-Pro 1 and the autofocus will fail on fast moving objects. Mash the shutter (gently) in one go and it works really well, even at f.1.4 with taxis.

Fuji X-Pro 1 – Some tips to fix the quirks – By Armando Chiu | STEVE HUFF PHOTOS | My X-pro1 | Scoop.it

I got my X-Pro 1 yesterday, and after some frustration and complaints, I am starting to like the XP1 more by working around some of the quirks.

Here are some workarounds to the quirks that I compiled. Some from discussions with others and some via testing.

1. APERTURE BLADE CHATTER

 

2. AF AND LOW LIGHT AF WOES

Fujifilm X-Pro1 in the Studio | Derek Clark Photography

Fujifilm X-Pro1 in the Studio | Derek Clark Photography | My X-pro1 | Scoop.it
The X-Pro1 is an awesome camera for natural light portraits, but how about portraits with strobes? I ordered the camera back in January, when it was first announced, but the thought of it being a studio camera never crossed my mind. But I quickly became curious when I saw the results of portraits I had taken on the streets. I know that my photog buddy Patrick La Roque is also waiting with interest to see how the X-Pro1 does in a studio environment. Maybe this will be the final nail in his wallet’s coffin? Check out Patrick’s blog for loads of great X100 & X-Pro1 stuff.

Fujifilm X-Pro1 Lens Review | 18mm f2 & 35mm f1.4 | Derek Clark Photography

Fujifilm X-Pro1 Lens Review | 18mm f2  &  35mm f1.4 | Derek Clark Photography | My X-pro1 | Scoop.it

"A lot of people have complained about the high cost of the X-Pro1, but each X mount lens is actually very affordable, in fact three times more affordable than the two main manufactures, but with no less quality. The chattering is a bit annoying, but you do get used to it…a bit. I was going to hold off for the upcoming 23mm (35mm equivalent), but I needed something wide. I’m really pleased I got the 18mm and as I have the 23mm on the X100, I might not even bother buying one for the X-Pro1. I am keen to see the super-wide 14mm when it arrives near the end of 2012."

X-Pro1 Diaries: Just Before Dinnertime | Handcarry Only

X-Pro1 Diaries: Just Before Dinnertime | Handcarry Only | My X-pro1 | Scoop.it

The hour before dinner time is a curious occasion. The working masses are spontaneously poured out onto the streets, evident in their eyes, relief that the workday is finally over. The fading light in the sky heightening the growling in their collective stomachs as they go in search of sustenance, mostly in groups, laughing and gesturing, occasionally alone, with the dim light of their mobile phones upon their faces. The restaurants and street hawkers are in a frenzy of activity, preparing for what typically is their busiest time of day. Amidst the smoke and smells, the harsh fluorescent light and garish neon, a city is winding down.

Beers are poured, cigarettes lit, tales exchanged.

Its dinnertime.

X-Pro1 Tips and Tricks: The Basics | Petteri Sulonen | My X-pro1 | Scoop.it

The X-Pro 1 is a brilliant camera, quirks and all. Explore its capabilities and make the most of it. And do shoot that 35 wide-open—it renders the most boring and mundane subjects so gorgeously it's almost not funny. And people complain about aperture chatter. Bah!

Beauty and the Beast - A very personal assessment of the Fuji X-Pro 1 | Soundimageplus | My X-pro1 | Scoop.it

At ISO 200 and f/11 the images that this thing produces are astounding. Absolutely gorgeous. They are so clean. There is no "graininess" or luminance noise visible anywhere. None, not a bit. Colours are clean and beautifully rendered, there is an incredible definition and clarity in the images that I've never seen before. The images are beautifully sharp and raw files developed in the Silkypix software need no extra sharpening at all. The jpgs. are mind boggling, they are almost perfect. I can get slightly improved results from the raw files but its only marginal.

Fujifilm X-Pro 1 - My last trip to Dubai | Michael Cali | My X-pro1 | Scoop.it
All in all.. I’m completely loving this camera. It definitely has it’s quirks.. autofocus being one of my main concerns.. but I haven’t had the chance to test this camera out in a setting more prone to what I do.. weddings, engagements, and portraiture. I’m not usually one to just head out and shoot street photography.. but I did want to post some of my initial pictures with this camera. I get back from my travels with Joe McNally next week.. and I’m looking to really put the X-Pro 1 through the gauntlet! Stay tuned..

X-Pro1 At 3200 ISO:: Belladrum Festival | Derek Clark Photography

X-Pro1 At 3200 ISO:: Belladrum Festival | Derek Clark Photography | My X-pro1 | Scoop.it

 

Balladrum Music Festival near Inverness in Scotland is a pretty interesting place and it’s full to the brim with interesting people. I was there as a musician playing last on the second stage..

 

There’s no fear at shooting 3200 iso with the X-Pro1! There’s also no fear shooting at wide apertures, you just simply compose and let the camera do the rest. This first shot was at f2 and 1/60 of a second. I was shooting the performers in the background playing with fire, but I found the foreground more interesting.

 

Dereks great black and white shots on his 35mmstreet site:

Fujifilm X-Pro1 Compact System Camera - Review | Imaging Resource

Fujifilm X-Pro1 Compact System Camera - Review | Imaging Resource | My X-pro1 | Scoop.it

Shooting with the Fujifilm X-Pro1 is really a kick. It took me back to the days when all I had were prime lenses, and my senses were tuned to the world around me such that I could anticipate which lens I needed before the action happened, and swiftly reach into my bag for the right lens. Naturally, though, I occasionally watched helplessly as moments passed with the wrong lens mounted, being since spoiled by the zoom. Five police officers on Segways snuck up on me when I had just mounted the 60mm lens, while the 18mm would have been perfect to capture them all with their near-identical inquisitive expressions. It's a pitfall of shooting only primes, but the rewards are worthwhile.

CAMERA REVIEW: Fuji X-Pro 1 by FUJIFILM | Photo Madd

CAMERA REVIEW: Fuji X-Pro 1 by FUJIFILM | Photo Madd | My X-pro1 | Scoop.it

IN DAILY USE

This is a biggy. Anyone who ‘got’ using the X100 will get using the X-Pro 1 too – it is a very similar camera in a lot of ways. Those who never got the X100 will be unlikely to enjoy using the X-Pro 1 either. It isn’t the huge leap forward that many might have been hoping for, it certainly is better, but it isn’t like comparing the Olympus E-P2 with the E-P3 where the PEN range suddenly took that big step forward....

Fujifilm X-Pro1 Review | Mikee.nu | Photographer

Fujifilm X-Pro1 Review | Mikee.nu | Photographer | My X-pro1 | Scoop.it

Oh I lied, I do have a camera complaint. The moving aperture blades that causes chatter in changing light. Yes, I know it’s normal, but it’s striking how loud it can be. Out and about, it’s a non-issue. Indoors with family (or when I take this to wedding gigs), it’s loud and can get annoying. One can argue the shutter of a dslr is loader, but that’s expected when a photographer is around. Aperture chatter, kinda weird and not normal to most people.

All said and done it’s results that I’m more worried and interested about. This fucking camera can perform. The files are simply gorgeous and not only are they amazingly good sooc, they look even better post processed.

Playing with the Fuji X-Pro1 | Steve Schlackman

Playing with the Fuji X-Pro1 | Steve Schlackman | My X-pro1 | Scoop.it

Ok, here are some points I want to get across. Everyone is correct about the great quality. It rivals my Canon 5D Mark II. And that is what any camera of this quality is for.

Finally, I find the depth of field to be very different from my Mark II. That takes getting use to. Now this is normal. It has a bit more depth. I am not saying there is anything wrong with the Fuji. The Canon has a smaller lens barrel, and it is full frame. So there is going to be a difference. I just want people reading this to know this so they can make adjustments for it. Below are 2 images. The right is the Mark 2, left is the X -Pro1. They are the same ISO, Aperture and Shutter Speed. You can see how the quality in both is just outstanding. And you can see that the depth of field for the mark 2 is different. So with the X Pro1, just remember to adjust the aperture as necessary.

Advanced Hybrid Viewfinder | FUJIFILM X-Pro1

Advanced Hybrid Viewfinder | FUJIFILM X-Pro1 | My X-pro1 | Scoop.it

Similar to a camera lens, a viewfinder consists of several concave and convex lenses. A camera with a fixed focal length lens only requires a single set of viewfinder lenses for the specific focal length. However, if multiple focal lengths must be supported, the camera needs to have as many sets of viewfinder lenses in different configurations. It is also necessary to consider the light path of both optical and electronic viewfinders. Constraints of the camera's body size were another element of difficulty. Determined to incorporate a Hybrid Viewfinder to the interchangeable-lens X-Pro1, Fujifilm explored several systems.

Hands On Review: Fuji X-Pro1 Camera System (With Sample Images) | The Phoblographer | My X-pro1 | Scoop.it
Fast forward many years and the digital camera has come about. Then the digital SLR dominates. And then Leica came out with a digital rangefinder. To combat this, many companies started to produce their own mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras. Fast forward another couple of years, and Fujifilm is combining the roots and craftmanship of those olden cameras with modern ergonomics and technology.
And the Fuji X Pro 1 is their current king of the hill.

The Fuji X Pro 1 and Nikkor Lenses part V | Jim Gamblin

The Fuji X Pro 1 and Nikkor Lenses part V | Jim Gamblin | My X-pro1 | Scoop.it


Nikon has made a number of 28mm lenses over the years. The most illustrious is undoubtedly the 28mm f/1.4 AF-D. In the past I usually avoided the 28mm focal length in favor of the 24mm and 20mm lenses. When the 17-35mm Super Wide Zoom came out in the mid nineties, it quickly came to be my “go to” wide angle lens.
...
When I began trying out my Nikkor lenses with the Fuji X Pro 1, this was one lens, that I had not anticipated becoming one of my favorites. The focal length with APS-C sized sensor, gives a cropped field of view of around a 42mm equivalent. Kind of ho hum area. However it has been a joy shooting with it. All of the things that I liked about it before seem almost better now with the Fuji’s sensor. Funny how some of the lenses I had great expectations which were not fulfilled and then others surprised me in good ways...
