Can the Fuji X-Pro 1 and 60mm Lens be Used for Action Shots?
In conclusion, the Fuji X-Pro 1 and 60mm lens will never achieve the same number of keepers as a DSLR. However, it will produce an acceptable number of keepers for most fun shoots. Moral of the story – you should probably not use the Fuji X-Pro 1 and 60mm lens for paid action shots, but for fun why not. I followed my advice and unexpectedly came away with 40 keepers, a handful of lovely Hula images and of course, no $$$.

Well, you finally got an X-Pro1. Sure, you still can’t convert raw files easily and are probably still getting used to the focusing – but there is no better time to [junk up] accessorize than the present.

I have had the x-pro1 for about 6 weeks now and the more I use it the more I am fascinated of the quality of the files. No matter if with Leica M lenses or the Fuji XF lenses. First I only bought the 35mm but now I have all three. Tomorrow I´ll fly to Ireland and I am really curious what will be the output.
Thanks for your site. I came there by chance and for me this is one of the really best and informative sites concerning xpro1.

Last weekend I got an opportunity to go to Las Vegas, Nevada and shoot some architecture with Fuji X-Pro1 + 16mm, 35mm and 60mm lenses. What I like the most was the weight of my bag with the camera and three lenses which wasn’t annoying or tiring at all!
Since the lighting at night wasn’t that great I mostly shot these images on high ISO.
These images are all shot in JPG. I processed them in Adobe Lightroom + Nik HDR Efex Pro and Silver Efex Pro 2.

… really love how I now have a small lightweight high quality kit, with amazing optical viewfinders making me feel very connected to the scene, with awesome image quality and spectacular lenses. The 35mm (50mm equivalent) at f/1.4 is brilliant, Lulu the dog below (a perfect model as far as staying still) is shot at f/1.4.

(In no particular order as the Leica deficiencies were all equally annoying to me at times)

DSLRs also tend not to evoke much of an emotional response from their owners. I respect my 5D II, but I don’t love it the way I could see myself falling for the Fuji X-Pro 1. It’s kind of like the difference between German cars and Italian cars – the Germans are brilliantly engineered and will hardly ever let you down, but they seem to lack some of the soul (and frustrations) of the Italian ones.

I took the X pro 1 with me to the states to shoot some images during the classes I taught for Kelby Training, I can’t show those images yet, but it did great. The images shown in this review were shot behind the scenes and during the trip, I love the wide open look so the X pro 1 is great for me, and also for you if you like that look. It’s however not for everyone…. for the same price you get a DSLR with a good zoom lens and overall I think that is a better camera. HOWEVER when you are into street photography (which I also love to do), or if you just want a camera that gets you awesome quality but doesn’t stand out like “HE PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER AT WORK, SEND ME AWAY!!!!” than the X pro 1 will give you image quality that is better than most DSLRs, is much smaller and is just…… so much fun to work with.

I knew I was in trouble the first time I read the press release about the Fuji X-Pro1 some months ago. I was further convinced I was in trouble when I began to see the output of the X-Pro1 on various photo sites and forums. Then, after actually handling the X-Pro1, I realized that resistance was, in fact, futile.

I’ve been using the Fuji X Pro 1 for weddings since it first came out. I’ve shot four weddings using it so far. I shoot with it alongside my Fuji X100, Canon 5d Mark 2, and Canon 7d. In total, the Fuji X Pro 1 accounts for about 30 percent of my pictures. As much as I may love any camera, I never depend on just one to do the job. I believe all my cameras have different roles to fulfill throughout the day. Sometimes I use the Fuji X Pro 1 exclusively. At other times during the wedding, I shoot it alongside any one of my other cameras. In this review I will explain how I use it, why I use it, and how I feel about it as a tool for professional wedding photography.
