Without a doubt the FUJIFILM X-Pro1 is the most versatile camera I have ever used.

The new sensor technology provided me with amazingly sharp images in all shooting conditions and I couldn’t wait to get to Paris as I had a few ideas for images that I thought would take advantage of the technological advances in the X-Pro1….
