With the X-Pro1 I can go places I can’t normally go with my heavy equipment and take photographs that are still relevant,” says Christian who has been shooting landscapes for 18 years. There’s nothing I don’t like about this camera…The thing I love about the X-Pro1 is the size and the fact that you can get really good quality pictures. Landscapes have to be sharp and detailed and the X-Pro1 has all that.
Portraits with the Fuji X-Pro1: Just before the weekend I received my Fujifilm Fujinon XF 60mm f/2.4 R Macro Lens for use with the X-Pro1. Although I’d used the lens before for my reviews, it was the one lens of the original three that Fuji released that I hadn’t yet got hold of to keep for my self. It arrived just before this weekends wedding so I didn’t have time get used to it before the wedding. I took it out on Sunday whilst in the kitchen with the kids. These are literally the first two shots I took with the 60mm lens.
I’d always been rather satisfied with Aperture 3’s metadata views until I started shooting the X100. Why? Because the EXIF data in Aperture doesn’t include Fuji’s proprietary film simulation info (available in JPEG mode). And while it was frustrating on the X100, it’s become more of an issue with the X-Pro1 since I tend to play with these a lot more, especially the two Pro-Neg simulations which I’ve become quite fond of. In fact, my studio preset is based on Pro-Neg Std (with raw as a backup).

When it comes to street photography, it is easy to get caught-up in the hype of new cameras, spending too much time on blogs, and not enough time out shooting. I think one of the most difficult things in street photography is to find enough time to shoot and being able to also relax when out on the streets. I suffer lack of focus, obsession about gear, and also not enough time out shooting on the streets. It is a battle I constantly fight with myself to change. If you ever felt that you have had difficulty finding focus in street photography, hopefully this advice I will share will help you.
