Camera Review – Fuji X-Pro1 | VanEarl Photography

See on Scoop.itFuji X-Pro1

Would I trade in all of my Nikon gear and go all out for the Fuji X-Pro1? It’s very, very tempting! I could see myself shooting this camera 99% of the time and using my Nikons as a backup system. However, the Fuji has not been out all that long and I don’t yet know it’s longevity. The D700 has been around the block and back again and I know it’s quality in and out. With that said, I’m pretty sure I will own one in the near future. And, with that I will leave you with some of the images I took using this wonderful camera along with some descriptions, enjoy!

Fujifilm X-Pro1 with the 60mm lens | Brandon Remler

See on Scoop.itFuji X-Pro1

The X-Series 60mm lens has lagged behind the 18mm & 35mm in delivery to the dealers. This week we will see them arrive at the dealers and folks can get their hands on a terrific lens for portrait, macro, still-life and whatever else you like a medium telephoto for. The sharpness is great and it’s a terrific lens to own.

I’ve been experimenting with the 60mm (35mm equivalent is 91mm) for a couple months and have shared many images from my pre-production lens, and my final version is now in my hands so I’ll update more images later.

Fuji X-Pro1 Review | Ken Rockwell

See on Scoop.itFuji X-Pro1

For people photos, the colors from the X-Pro1 are superior to other brands of digital camera. Just like older Fuji DSLRs and the Fuji X100 favored by wedding and portrait shooters, the X-Pro1’s color and contrast is optimized for fantastic people photos. The M9 can’t do this; its color rendition is sloppy. Like the M9, the X-Pro1’s files will usually need some computer tweaking for stunning results for nature and landscape shots. Oddly, both the LEICA and FUJI usually wind up with weird-looking shadows when you start jacking up the contrast and colors, while Nikon and Canon DSLRs deliver superior nature and landscape shots. Nikon and Canon’s nature and landscape shots offer wild colors that still look natural, while pushing the Fujis and LEICAs start to look artificial.

Talking, walking, shopping hipsters – Testing the X-Pro1 | Jeff Tamagini

See on Scoop.itFuji X-Pro1

For the most part I am using the optical viewfinder, I mean it is the reason I am testing the camera as an option to be my next major purchase. Unlike optical viewfinders on traditional DSLR cameras that are pentaprisms and mirrors that let you see through the lens this viewfinder is off to the side like an old school rangefinder. You can’t see focus because it doesn’t look through the lens so you have to let go and trust things. If all else fails you can use the EVF but switching between the OVF and the EVF not the fly isn’t best to do when you are trying to nail a shot at a critical moment.

My Thoughts on the Fujifilm X-pro 1 | Street Zen

See on Scoop.itFuji X-Pro1

I don’t consider myself an expert yet on camera gear or even photography in general but gear is a huge part of the photography experience and learning about it so because of my new camera I decided to write about gear or at least my experience with a specific gear. I’m not a gear reviewer or tester but I am a gear enthusiast, a gear dreamer, a gear buyer and a gear user. I’m not wealthy so I buy what I can afford, what I require for learning and for gigs, and do my research before purchasing it. Most of my research is done online but I know that for anything online I shouldn’t believe everything, I should do my own research, and do what works for me.

Fujifilm X-Pro1: less and more | Don Craig Photography

See on Scoop.itFuji X-Pro1

This week, I tested the XP1 in a different way with very good results. I used it for a portrait shoot. Set up on a tripod, with a radio flash trigger mounted and using the 60mm lens (did I mention that I really like this lens?), I used the EVF/LCD to frame and focus my shots. So, instead of using the tiny frame lines in the OVF, I used the XP1 like a view camera. This is certainly an example of the “more” of this camera. I have shot portraits with the M9 and my 90mm lens. However, focusing and reviewing the results are not necessarily user friendly. As a side note, the flashes were used in manual and one was a slave to the other, triggered strobe. A secondary side note, the R-D1 did not sync with the Cactus V triggers, so was completely useless for this type of photography.

ND Filter For The Fuji X-Pro1 | Patrick Leong

See on Scoop.itFuji X-Pro1

Shooting wide open with the Fuji X-Pro1 in daylight to isolate the subject, and blur out the background requires an ND filter. Which one?
So the reason why I wanted an ND filter was because the filter will reduce the amount of light that goes through my lens, allowing me to shoot at wider apertures.  Many buy a F1.4 lens to shoot in darker situations because it allows more light into the lens.  But some like the effects that shooting wide open can generate.  What effects are these?

Fujifilm X Pro-1 for Wedding | Colin Michael Photographer

See on Scoop.itFuji X-Pro1

It’s not often I get excited about camera gear as I’m very much a “it’s-not-about-the-camera” kind of photographer but the new Fuji X Pro-1 has me quite excited! I’m not going to bore you with all the technical details that you can read on the camera geek websites; I’ll talk about why this camera is or is not suitable as a camera for professional wedding photographer use (or maybe as an SLR alternative to my clients who have photographic aspirations), image quality and overall feel. This definitely isn’t the kind of blog post that I normally do but there’s so little information and quality reviews by working professional photographers about this camera that I want to share my thoughts. This is going to serve as my preliminary thoughts, I’ll post a more comprehensive review with sample images later. Note that at this time Lightroom does not support the RAW files from the X Pro-1 so I will be shooting jpeg and thus heavily relying on the in-camera processing.

Fujifilm X-Pro1: First Impressions and Camera Control | Peter F. Flynn

See on Scoop.itFuji X-Pro1

I have now spent a few days with the new Fujifilm X-Pro1.  I must say that thus far I am very impressed.  The most important thing that I can report on to date is that the IQ is remarkably good.  Easily the best I have seen on any 1.5/1.6-crop sensor.  A number of folks have already posted RAW images.  I hope to get around to showing some of my own images very soon, but here I’ll describe the basic camera control layout.
