Fuji X-Pro1

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…

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………

Das Carl Zeiss Distagon 35mm f1.4 ZM | Mehrdad Samak-Abedi

Auf der Photokina 2014 kündigte die Carl Zeiss AG das Distagon 35mm f1.4 ZM für das Leica Bajonett an. Bei einem Straßenpreis von knapp 2000 Euro kann man es nicht unbedingt als Schnäppchen bezeichnen, jedoch ist es recht offensichtlich, welchen Kundenkreis Carl Zeiss mit diesem Objektiv ansprechen will. Vergleicht man das Distagon mit seinem Leica Pendant, das Summilux 35mm (ca. 4500 Euro), sieht das mit dem Schnäppchen schon ganz anders aus. Wie immer ist das eine Frage des Standpunktes. Ich gehöre zur ersten Gruppe, also zu der, die das nicht als ein Schnäppchen sehen und eher mit Objektiven vergleichen, die preislich weiter unten angesiedelt sind. Aktuell fällt mir da im Moment nur das Voigtländer  35mm f1.2 Nokton II oder das sehr charaktervolle Voigtländer 35mm f1.4 Nokton ein. Das Nokton II habe ich von einem Fotofreund derzeit geliehen bekommen, aber bitte erwartet hier keine Vergleiche, ich komme derzeit nicht so zum Ausprobieren des selben. Hier soll es aber eh nur um das Distagon gehen. Und bevor ich das vergesse zu erwähnen: Ich bin kein Technikfreak, will sagen: Das ist hier ist ein Nutzer-Erfahrungsbericht. Ich verliere mich hier weniger in technischen Details (ganz einfach, weil ich davon auch viel zu wenig Ahnung habe, aber psssst!!) als mehr in aus dem Fotoalltag gewonnenen Erkenntnissen…….

Considering a switch to Leica M240 from Fujifilm X100s and X-Pro1? |
Michael Brenner

Considering a switch to the Leica M240 from the Fujifilm X100s and X-Pro1? Wanting more info before you make the financial commitment required to enter the Leica world? So was I, and here is my experience. If you don’t want to do all the reading, the short answer is Yes, it’s well worth the switch, because of image quality, the rangefinder experience, speed, simplicity and connection to the subject.  What follows is my response to a fellow in the an FB Leica group who was also considering a switch and was asking for anecdotal information. When I was considering the switch, I used this forum for much of my research, and I’m very grateful to the various forum members for their help during my journey. I can only hope that my own experience, detailed below, might be of some use to those also considering a switch and desiring more information before taking the plunge. For those of similar background or interest, please feel free to add your own comments or experiences. For me, at least, Leica has been a switch well worth taking and a journey finally begun……..

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………

Ian + Kim | Wilson Chiew

I am the cousin of the Bride. I attended the wedding as a guest (not official photographer). My relative and I traveled all the way from Malaysia to London then to Sicily for this gorgeous wedding. It was a blessed wedding where everything went fine especially the weather was nice. This was my first ever experience a western style wedding and I found it was different as compared to my traditional chinese culture wedding. Sit down and enjoy the photo sets =) | Photos taken using Fujifilm XPro-1 and XE-2

Kathmandu – 2 Days in Nepal | Ross Kennedy

A brief pit-stop in Kathmandu was a little bonus. A stepping-stone on my way home from Bhutan, the Nepalese capital is famously exotic with layer upon layer of history to explore…and a fascinating array of characters to photograph. After two weeks among the pine-clad, silent valleys of the Dragon Kingdom, where the land bears very few signs of human occupation, touching down in the lung-burning cacophony of Kathmandu’s traffic nightmare was one of those cultural somersaults that makes travel so compelling. Leisurely people-watching in the Indian sub-continent is a favourite occupation of mine but with only two days to explore the city, it was a case of hitting the highlights on the run with little time to sit back and enjoy the show. Kathmandu has been a backpackers’ favourite for more than 40 years – the final destination on the 60’s hippy trail to the jumping off point for Everest summit attempts. Centre of operations is Durbar Square, a jumble of medieval temples, multi-tiered pagodas and imposing colonial-era buildings. The square pulsates with life – on the day I visited, there was a vibrant ceremony taking place involving a parade of coloured flags, thumping music and lots of dancing…..

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”……..
