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.

… 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.

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 learned a couple of things from shooting everything in sight over the past year, but the most important thing I’ve learned is that, if you shoot long enough, you will have a confrontation of some sort.”
After reading these words, I am compelled to ask if this is how you began your first adventures into photography (shooting, as you say, everything in sight)?
…for street photography, right now I’m using the Fuji X-Pro1 with the 18mm and 35mm lenses. I also own a Fuji x100 that’s sort of in purgatory at the moment, I guess, because the XP1 is turning out to be a masterpiece of a camera….

I just finished reading the book: The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business which was a fascinating look into how we build our behaviors and lifestyles through habits. This got me thinking about street photography. The biggest hurdles that I used to be challenged with with my old day-job (and still am struggling with) is finding enough time to shoot street photography…
