My 2.5 Years With Fujifilm X-Series Cameras And Lenses |
Bradley Hanson

This review is 2.5 years in coming, and isn’t really a review but rather a personal history of why the Fujifilm X-Series, specifically the X-Pro1 and X100S, is a perfect fit for me: the cameras I had been waiting for. I am a very technical and precise person, but this is not a technical review. These cameras have been out for years and there are much better reviews, including one by my friend Vincent Opoku (link below). I wanted to write something initially because using these cameras was relatively revolutionary for me, but I also wanted to let the beer goggles dissipate and write logically and dispassionately about the experience so those considering the system could get a realistic understanding of what to expect without all the usual superlatives that come from excitement, and also to spare readers the agony of run on sentences like the one you are enduring now…..

The Fujifilm X-Pro1 for Street Photography | Spyros Papaspyropoulos

It is time for another camera review for Street Photography! This will be the 3rd camera review we have done so far. In the past we have written a review about the wonderful Ricoh GR for Street Photography and the powerful Canon 6D for Street Photography. Both those reviews are highly recommended because they are from a Street Photographer’s perspective. Today, we will review a camera that was talked about by many when it first hit the market. Some praised it for what it had to offer, others gave it a serious beating because of its really bad AF performance. There are numerous reviews about it all over the web, and countless YouTube videos and tutorials on how to get best results from its focusing system. Despite any quirks this camera may have it is still a wonderful work of engineering that produces some of the most amazing files one could hope for. Today we review the Fujifilm X-Pro1. As with the previous reviews we wrote, this review is going to be from a Street Photographer’s perspective. It is a completely personal point of view. I am not a camera expert – anything I know about cameras is from personal experience, as I am not a professional camera guru. So, what you will read below is purely my personal opinion about the Fujifilm X-Pro1 for Street Photography and nothing more………

One Year with the Fuji X-Pro1 | Peter Dareth Evans

The above photo – taken a couple of days after grabbing the X-Pro1 with the bundled 18mm f/2 lens, that was when I kind of fell in love. It’s plenty sharp with beautiful colours and a natural filmic character to its unobtrusive noise at high ISO. What’s more, the quiet shutter-click and compact old school styling made it completely unobtrusive. After a chat about the curious camera, the blacksmith just let me work the scene, with nary a further glance. Yes, it’s been one year now that I’ve been shooting with my X-Pro1. Here are some thoughts on my time with Fuji’s first X-Trans camera and how I’ve found the shooting experience, and whether it might be the right camera for you…

Fuji X-Pro1 – Should you still buy one? | Dave Young

For a camera that is just 3 years old the Fuji X-Pro1 is one of those cameras that polarises opinion in so many ways. First announced back in January 2012 and launched in March 2012, the X-Pro1 is likely to go down as a classic. It was the flagship model that fully launched Fuji into interchangeable lens systems and in part thanks to the hybrid viewfinder allowing photographers the option of choosing between an optical finder (OVF) and an electronic view (EVF), along with previews of depth of field and white balance.  It’s a camera that in many ways is tough to better and for many Fujiholics, the wait continues for the release of the X-Pro2, a new improved X-Pro1, once more trail blazing the Fuji name. The question many still ask though, is should you still invest your money in an X-Pro1 now, with Fuji moving forward with revised technology, and the X-Pro1 slowly getting left behind. The release of Fuji’s XT-1 certainly upped the game for Fuji, even though the styling was somewhat different to the X-Pro1. It features no rangefinder style cues like the X-Pro1 has but the technology is certainly a step on from the X-Pro1………

A Year with the Fuji X-Pro1 – Review | Richard Nixon

The X-Pro1 had instant appeal; I had harboured a mild and ongoing interest in photography ever since I owned my first capable camera – the iPhone 4s – but had never been drawn in by the idea of the DSLR touting lifestyle. The X-Pro1 was the answer I hadn’t even realised I was waiting for – the image quality, performance “sex appeal” it offered was all there and everything I suddenly needed. However, a quick price check revealed that my student budget wasn’t letting this happen anytime soon. The article was bookmarked and forgotten. Cue 2014 – a couple of graduations and a few months of employment later – and I have an income, firmware updates have fixed the cameras biggest issues and Fuji are offering the X-Pro1 and their 18mm F2 at a discounted rate along with the offer to claim another lens of your choice free. It all came flooding back; I was sold. I chose the 35mm F1.4. Obviously. One year later and it’s apparent that was one of the best purchases I’ve ever made. It was my starting point as a photographer and my ability has come on leaps and bounds with it as my companion…….

A year with a Pro- one year on with the Fuji X-Pro1 | SUBERASHI

A year ago I jumped ship from being a Canon user to the world of Fuji and CSC cameras. Having dabbled with the very cool Olympus PEN range I was sure someone would deliver a camera with a smaller footprint than my now long gone 5dMKii but similar performance in the real world for whatever shoot I was getting paid for. As a working product photo guy image quality was ultra important so I couldn’t get the decision wrong. Well a year on and I haven’t missed the Canon gear, missed the camera snobbery that comes with having a big old DSLR, more than anything it’s made me love taking photos more also some cool looks from folk when they see the size of camera but then the image slickness. No it’s not full frame no, it doesn’t have 4k but it has soul bags of soul. From product work in the studio to landscape or street work work its been stellar. Perfect? no focusing can be a tad slow, not as bad as Facebook or Twitter knowledge trolls will have you think. Batteries can be greedy on use but any shooter worth his salt never leaves home with just on cell right? Lightroom works a treat with the RAW files as does Camera RAW. In the Studio it has excelled on projects that needed control of lighting and using it with triggers was and is a breeze. Have used cheap ebay triggers and Pocket Wizard set ups and again the little black box just gets on with it………

The Fuji X-Pro 1..My “Soulmate” Camera | Christina Davis

Thank you for letting me share, once again, with the readers here on this site. I am a Fujifilm camera user (X-Photographer wannabe….I can dream, can’t I?). I sold off all of my DSLR equipment and the XPro1 was my main camera. Like many Fuji enthusiasts I, too, got one of the X-T1 cameras when they came out. While I was less than thrilled with the form, the performance was as described and I happily shot away with it all spring and summer this year. In fact, the XPro1 was gathering dust and as August rolled around, I was considering letting it go. As I thought it over I remembered one photo I took this summer with it. On an outing to The Huntington in Pasadena, California, I took the XT1 and the XPro1. I put on the 18mm lens on the XPro1 “just in case”……..

Fuji X System – 2 years of use | Xtographer

I have been a hobbyist photographer since 1979, that’s 35 years!  I started out with a Zenit 35mm film SLR but quickly moved onto the Olympus OM system with an OM30 which was later added to with x2 OM2 SP’s. In 2000, I foolishly ditched all the Oly gear to get into digital and purchased, of all things, a Sony F505  and then ‘upgraded’ to a Sony F707. I fortunately saw the error of my ways and in 2005 bought into Nikon with a D70s and the venerable 18-70 kit lens. Over the next 7 years camera bodies were changed to include D90, D300, D700 and numerous lenses were added during that time. I always hankered after a smaller camera and tried out a number of offerings such as the Nikon P7100, which I still have, and a Panasonic LX5 but neither really did it for me. In January 2012 I purchased a Fuji XE1 with 18-55 kit lens to see if this system was a viable option for me.  I was blown away by the output of the files and that little kit lens attached to such a small body. The camera proved to be so portable that it was my go to camera despite having the D300, D700 and numerous f2.8 glass still to hand. The Nikon gear did not see light of day in 6 months. At this point I decided to sell the Nikon gear, some of which was purchased by members of this forum, and even though I loved to use the Nikon, especially that D700, I have no regrets of selling it on, none at all. From the funds raised through the sale of Nikon, I re-invested in Fuji glass which has today escalated to a collection of x9 Fuji lenses. In March 2014 I added a lightly used XPro1 body…….

Fujifilm X-Series for Wedding Photography |
X-Pro 1 & X100S Review | V. Opoku

After shooting weddings exclusively with the Fujifilm X-Pro 1 and X100S cameras for about 19 months, here are my thoughts and findings on the Fujifilm X-Series for Wedding Photography. Now this is not a technical review but rather a general conversation with my good friend and fellow Wedding Photographer, Jonathan Ellis which segued into a discussion on my experience shooting weddings with the Fujifilm X-Series cameras. I decided to hit the record button on my phone and here is a transcript of some of the topics we discussed. I don’t even think this is a format for writing reviews, but I hope it works out OK and the topics discussed provides an insight for anybody out there considering the Fujifilm X-Series for Wedding Photography, be it exclusively or to supplement their existing DSLR systems.

What to expect:

Well my name is Vincent, but commonly known as V ; so whenever V appears before a body of text, that was me talking/responding to Jonathan’s questions. For consistency sake and laziness on my part, Jonathan will be J in this article. Jonathan asks the questions and I respond ; I share my experience on the Fujifilm X-Series for Wedding Photography, my likes and dislikes, the strength and weakness of the system as a whole, the things to improve on and my conclusion…….

12 Months With My Fuji X-Pro1 | Dave Young

I’ve had my Fuji X-Pro1 for just about a year now so thought it would be a good time to review the past 12 months of living with it and jot down the highs and lows of life with the Fuji X-Pro1. Having made a decision to swap over from an all prime DSLR full frame kit, the X-Pro1 was a shoe in as a change. I did consider the XE1 initially, but as soon as I cradled the X-Pro1 in my arms I was sold. I was in search of something smaller, lighter, just as capable for image quality and the Fuji X-Pro1 fitted all of those criteria. Added to that was the customer service that Fuji was fast building a reputation for, continuing to take good care of its past client base through firmware updates for its camera bodies and lenses, long after they’d been superseded. Using the X-Pro1 you don’t just buy into a camera system, you kind of buy into a whole eco-system, care included……
