I really wanted to like the X-Pro1—and I do in that strange way you like your odd-ball cousin who seems a bit on the crazy side—but it feels like a camera that would have wowed everyone three or four years ago but is already showing some age. It’s definitely not the camera to get if you’re a state-of-the-artist. The focus and buffer/write performance will quickly get old.

I’ve been using the Fujifilm X-Pro1 for a while now and recently wrote about my thoughts on this little camera in the June 2012 edition of Professional Photographer magazine. I’m right in the middle of a very busy May and June in terms of Wedding Photography but before I head off to this afternoon’s wedding at The Hare and Hounds I wanted to post a few recent Wedding Photos shot with the X-Pro1.

X-Pro 1 Support has finally come to Lightroom and Camera Raw. Many people have been eagerly awaiting this and now that it’s finally here I took a little time this morning to have a look and see what it was like. I’ve kept all the raw files from everything I’ve shot so far, so it was simply a matter of going back and loading them into Lightroom. So what’s it like? Unfortunately it’s a good news, bad news kind of situation.

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 $$$.

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.

Thx Ernst for your appreciation :-)

… 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.

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.
