My Love Affair with the Fujifilm X-Pro1 | Adam Bonn

Boy meets camera, lives happily ever, right? WRONG! But how wrong? And can two wrongs make a right? I’m a funny bugger when it comes to camera gear… Don’t get me wrong, I can suffer from GAS (Gear Acquisition Syndrome), my obsessive collection of Transformer toys as a kid, various motorcycles that I’ve pimped up, and a one-time large collection of wrist watches that basically all looked the same… Yup, if you say to me, “Adam, I know I don’t need it, but I simply HAVE to have it” then I’ll unflinchingly look you back in the eye, fix you with an understanding look and say, I know, I know… let’s figure out a plan to get you what you don’t need… What have you got that can be flipped on eBay, how much room is left on your credit card, do you have 2 functioning kidneys?……

X-Gene: A Love and Hate Story | Fujifilm X-PRO1 & X-T1 | Insignia Chiaki

I am happily married to my Nikon gear. But there’s always room for lovers. Right?  So before I tried out the Sony stuff, I’ve also found myself buying a X-Pro1 from Fuji. For about 4 months I used the Fuji for everyday snaps and of course occasional usage in portrait sessions; however, I have to say my experiences were… Let’s just say I was puzzled, and I’ll elaborate on that later. I ended up selling the X-Pro1 in mid-2015. When I eventually sold the A7 II, I decided to give Fujifilm another chance. This time with their flagship X-T1. Two months into my purchase, all I have to say is: WOW……..

A Love Letter to the Fujifilm X Pro 1 | Chris Gampat

In January 2012, Fujifilm announced a camera that helped kickstart the retro ergonomic design trend that we see so often today. It officially started with the Fujifilm X100, but the X Pro 1 was the first super successful retro-style camera with interchangeable lenses to hit the market. Years later, it’s one of my personal well loved cameras and has held up incredibly well–something that is really tough for most digital cameras to do. The Fujifilm X Pro 1 is a camera that has been with me for years now. I purchased it a while back while still working at B&H Photo and like the Canon 5D Mk II before it, it’s a camera that I cherish because it reacquainted me with a part of my photography past that had previously been lost. You see, I trained myself on an old Leica CL; then had to sell it in college for money. The Fujifilm X Pro 1 appeals to the rangefinder crowd because of the ergonomic structure, design and layout. It’s not a Leica M, or a Voigtlander Bess, or a Zeiss Ikon–but it’s still a beautiful rangefinder inspired camera. For those of us who genuinely don’t like the SLR-style layout, then this camera makes a heck of a lot more sense……..

X-Pro1? A good call | Paul Perton

Three months and a milestone birthday ago, I wrote Going a bit more Fuji; stopping the Leica itch (a quickie)about buying an X-Pro1 and being seriously excited at the prospect. As it turns out, I was right to be. Although I was more than three years behind the rest of the photographic world in discovering the X-Pro, my tardiness did me no harm. And, already being familiar with the X100T, setting up the X-Pro proved to be pretty straightforward. On that day in Agra*, I put aside my much loved Sony NEX-7, took up this Leica-alike and let it work it’s magic. Magic it is, too. The body is re-assuringly solid, the viewfinder switchable between optical and digital, the shooting modes easily selectable and sensible, the film simulation(s) useful and a definite reason I’d recommend it to anyone else thinking of moving in this direction……..

Fujifilm X-Pro1 Booty Call | Bill Thornhill

In our consumer driven world we are constantly bombarded with the latest tech products from camera manufacturers, not that any of us mind I don’t think. I personally can’t wait to see the latest lens or camera reviews from my favorite Youtubers and bloggers. It can however, create a sense of emptiness when we know we aren’t able to afford that latest camera body or f1.x fast lens that we are sure we need to be able to ascend to the next level of photography. Even when we have the good fortune to have a pretty good camera and maybe a couple of lenses, as soon as our favorite manufacturer brings out an upgrade, we can sometime be left feeling inadequate, like if your buddy had just turned up with a new girlfriend who is demonstrably far hotter than yours in both looks and abilities. But as with partners, we can sometimes forget that our current gear was once the subject of our wanton desires too……..

3 Year Real World Review – Fujifilm X-Pro 1 | Capitalfaces

Certainly, amongst the throngs of mirrorless cameras out there these days, few have polarised opinion more  than the Fujifilm X-Pro 1. In the UK we would call this a ‘marmite’ camera – you either love it, or you hate it. There is no grey area. It is one or the other. Period. See ya. It seems the X-Pro’s days are numbered. In fact, they probably stopped making them a while ago such is the heavy discounting going on right now. Therefore, as an early adopter of the system (June 2012 to be exact) I figured it would be appropriate to write a few words in honour of this little beast – especially as murmurings of an X-Pro 2 are getting steadily louder……

Why I kept my Fuji X Pro-1 | Scott Evans

With all the new fangled, fancy pants, digital gee-wiz-a-bang’s being released seemingly on a weekly basis, I decided to stop!  I decided to stop buying the latest and greatest version of what I already have.  I have the Fuji XT1 and love it but I also KEPT my Fuji X-Pro 1, and here’s why.

  1. Just because Fuji released something new does not make my X Pro-1 a bad camera.
  2. The B&W I get from the X-Pro 1 is more like film than any other camera I’ve used, X100s a close 2nd
  3. It’s focusing is fast enough, certainly faster than I can manually focus my Leica M6
  4. It’s a pretty tough camera.  In fact I have my XE-2 repaired from a slight drop where as the X-Pro 1 still works
  5. The X-Pro 1 fits my hands perfectly.  I love rangefinders and this is a rangefinder-ey as you can get……..

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………
