Fuji X-Pro1

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………

Paris In The Rain | Bryan Jones

This is the first time I’ve been back to Paris since 2008.  That trip I managed to squeeze in a visit in 12hrs.  This time I had a little more time in-between work, meetings and capturing data from a really cool microscope made by LLTech. 3 days in Paris really is not enough time, particularly when you only really have one day to do things that are not work, but its better than no days. Unfortunately, it rained pretty much the entire time I was in Paris, or at least in those hours I was able to get outside, but that did not stop me from trying to do photography.  The evening I booked it over to the Eiffel Tower, most of the time the top was shrouded in clouds.  I was rewarded with some persistence out at the Eiffel Tower when the clouds broke and the sun shone through during sunset and I was able to get the introductory image at the top……..

A Quick Review Of The Fujinon XF 16mm f1.4 Lens –
How Wide & Shallow Can It Go? | Marco Larousse

As much as I love my X100 series cameras for my everyday street work, there are occasions when I need/want to use a different focal length for a specific purpose. And 95% of the time it is to use a wider lens than what my X100 can give me. So far that meant that I would put the excellent Fuji XF 14mm f/2.8 on my X-Pro 1. It is a fantastic lens and works great for street photography, especially when using zone focusing. But if there is one thing that I would like to change about this lens, it would be to use it at faster apertures. The XF 16mm f/1.4 has a classic 24mm field of view in full frame terms compared to the equivalent 21mm of the XF 14mm lens. In real world numbers that will reduce the field of view from 90° (XF 14mm) to 83° (XF 16mm). That is not a whole lot but may be something landscape and architecture photographers may need to consider. While the field of view might not be much different the XF 16mm is a whole two f-stops faster! So who needs that on a wide angle lens? I do. In very low light situations photographers using this lens will be able to either shoot at a much lower ISO or keep the shutter speed short so they can safely hand hold or freeze the action in a shot. Let’s say you are in a situation where you shoot the XF 14mm at f/2.8 and 1/60s at ISO 6400. With the XF 16mm you now you have either the choice to shoot at f/1.4, 1/250s and ISO 6400 to freeze action or f/1.4, 1/60 at ISO 1600 at lower ISO while maintaining the same brightness in your image……..

Making the best of what you’ve got! | The Edge

Following on from my last post on travelling light with the X100s I thought I would take a look at what that actually means in the real world and how you can overcome and adapt to many situations. I was out in the town of Carrickfergus, walking around the Castle, Harbour and the Marine Highway on a very still grey day. The cloud cover was very low but producing some nice dramatic light as shown below in the photo of The Harbour below. Further along the marine highway is Fisherman’s Quay. Whilst on the Quay I noticed a shot of the famous Carrickfergus Castle across the water. I visualised a long exposure shot with the water and clouds nicely blurred. Normally I’d have a my X-Pro1, with several lenses, tripod and a range of Lee filters to choose from. However, when travelling with just the X100s, a spare battery and a couple of filters I had no such luxuries. Had the little Fuji reached its limit? ……

Review: Eyefi Mobi Pro 32 GB wireless SD card | Piet Van den Eynde

Eyefi kindly sent me a Mobi Pro 32 GB wireless SD card to review. The timing was right, because I had been looking for a way to create a tethered workflow in which I can send images I take with my Fujifilm cameras to Lightroom. Although Fujifilm have announced a tethering solution, it is not yet available and once it will be, it will still require you to use a cable. What is it? The Eyefi Mobi Pro 32 GB wireless SD card is, as its name implies, a 32 GB SD card that includes a wireless transmitter so you can send your photos wirelessly to your smartphone, tablet or computer. It’s priced at about $99 / €89. Eyefi also has a cheaper wireless card, the Eyefi Mobi, that exists in 8 and 16 GB versions. The difference between both is that the Pro version can…….

Finding Your Look – Post Processing with Fuji X | Peter Dareth Evans

Lately I’ve been receiving a few enquiries asking how I get my images to look the way they do. This is somewhat flattering, always a nice thing to be asked. The thing is I wasn’t quite sure if it’s a question that should be asked, which is ironic as until recently I always had the ardent desire to ask this of better photographers than I. The trouble is that when it comes to imagery and vision, one size does not necessarily fit all. I’ve found that the approaches I bring to my overseas shots of wooden house Americana look faintly laughable when applied to my natural rainy habitat of slate and stone UK. They just don’t fit each other. There are further differences when I leave the countryside for the inner city, which requires a whole other character of processing. And this is without going into the agonising decision over whether to shoot black and white or colour, and which is appropriate for what. The only way you can really nail the right look for yourself is by endless experimentation until something just clicks and you think to yourself, in a somewhat biblical way, “Ah yes, of course, I know your face. You’re the one I had been searching for all along.” So what do I look for in making my photograph? ……..

Sexiest camera ALIVE! | Ivan Joshua Loh

Its been almost 2 years since I gotten my first Fuji X series system. Its a birthday gift from my loving wife. Its the Xpro1 plus 2 lenses. XF35mm F1.4 and XF 14mm F2.8. Boy am I lucky! And boy am I lucky to have a wife! I have always think the Xpro1 looks gougeous. But never though of owning one as the price is not that cheap to start with. Until I had lunch with my good pal and fellow photographer; Joel Lim. He been using the Xpro1 for couple of months already and when I first held it; my first thought was its rather big and AF is not quick enough. Big because I was comparing it with a compact camera and AF is not quick because I was comparing with my DSLR( 1DX ). What a silly comparison. On the good side; I love the beautiful crafted dials. oozing with such sex appeal. The aperture rings, reminds me of a SLR from the old film days. An APS-C size Fuji X-trans sensor for capturing great details. The built quality that is second to none and after awhile I think its not that big after all. Especially when one compare with a DLSR…….

Zion – Landscape Photography | Mac Sokulski

This little day trip, happened over a year ago, and the photos where sitting on my hard drive collecting digital dust.  There are many others, that might see the light of day, or may not.  Procrastination and the fact that I wasn’t overly happy with the images played into the fact why I waited so long.  Personally I do not like changing my landscape photos, apart from small details and colors.  I never been a fan of replacing skies either.  First I find the task daunting, and second I like to leave some semblance of realism in my images.  If there are no clouds, then there are no clouds.  I have nothing against people who do that, nothing at all… I’m just lazy and frankly couldn’t be bothered. Being an opportunistic photographer, I don’t have the luxury of time, and spending a few days at a location, waiting for mother nature to smile.  I take what I’m given :)  Some say, that I’m wasting my time and pixels, but I disagree……..

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…
