Fuji X-Pro1

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 in India | Ashok Viswanathan

My primary interest is black & white but the richness and flexibility of digital colour fascinates me. Photoshop & digital imaging has evolved in the last 10 years and changed the way we handle images. Apart from traditional images I enjoy producing watercolours, line drawings, solarisations, and posterisations. More recent explorations are in the field of HDR, blending modes and newer creative software such as Post workshop. My subject matter is mainly landscapes, seascapes, portraits and travel images. I am passionate and deeply involved in my photography. Although a self taught amateur my work has won awards and been exhibited in national & international exhibitions in several countries including some published magazine work……

Review: Fujinon XF35 f/2.0 WR lens and a glance back at the XF27 | Bill Palmer

The ‚phone by my elbow burst into noisy life.  I’d left the ringer turned to full and it was like being jogged by a chugger; I nearly spilled my Earl Grey. I composed myself and answered. „It’s here…“ London Camera Exchange in Guildford, for so long my primary (and local) source of optical excellence and general photographic goodness, had managed to secure stock of the new Fujinon XF35mm f/2.0 WR. I got there as fast as I could and parted with the surprisingly reasonable sum of £299 (of which more later). As anyone who has read my scribbles for any length of time knows, I come from a long background of using Leica M cameras and lenses and, rightly or wrongly, they remain to this day my yardstick when evaluating new equipment, particularly the Fuji X line. In Leica terms, therefore, if the original and now slightly venerable Fujinon XF35mm f/1.4 R plays in Summilux territory, in aperture terms at least, then with the new f/2.0 Fuji is planting its flag firmly on the Summicron’s doorstep…….

Wedding in Versailles – Mana and Sylvain | V. Opoku

During the summer, Mana and Sylvain had me along for their Wedding in Versailles and we had a great time. I’ve always wanted to visit, but I seem to run out of time whenever I’m in Paris, so when the opportunity arose to go to Versailles and shoot a wedding at the same time, you can imagine how thrilled I was! However, what was supposed to be a 60 mins flight from London to Paris took more than 4 hours – delayed boarding & departure times and then a change of aircraft due to a fault on the initial plane. I eventually arrived in Paris at 1am on the day of the wedding, but all the trouble was worth it. In the end, it was truly incredible and beautiful experience spending the day with Mana, Sylvain, their family and friends. We partied until 5am!……..

US IN BCN | Meli and Pablo | Barcelona Honeymoon | V. Opoku

Exploring Barcelona with loving couples is a goal of mine now that I live here. I created US IN BCN because I’m driven to document stories of love and adventure in and around the city. Meli & Pablo are newlyweds travelling the world for their honeymoon, and they were kind enough to let me be a part of their Barcelona Honeymoon Adventure. We met by chance, got on fairly well, and before we knew it we were sharing stories and ideas over glasses of vermouth. 48 hours later the three of us spent the day climbing a mountain together. We had so much fun up there that we almost didn’t make it back down……

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……..

The advantage of zone focusing | Robvisual

Out in the streets there are many situations were you have to act quick to get the photo you want without fiddling with too much settings. A simple technique is to use zone focusing. When you own a mirrorless camera like I do, it is simple as 1-2-3. After you set the camera to manual mode you notice a new scale on the bottom of the viewfinder……

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……
