X-Pro1 vs Yellow Stone Cave | Vincent C. Wong

If you’ve been reading my recent posts, you’ll noticed that I have started using the Fujifilm X-Pro1 a lot more frequently than before. Even though I’ve owned the camera for over 7 months now… it wasn’t until the past 3 months that it has become my camera of choice. A worthy replacement for my Canon 5D MkII.

Sure, in the current technological environment I’d say every camera performs well under good light (even my iPhone 5). However, it’s only when a camera has a special ability to capture details, textures etc… under the most challenging of lights will it earn my trust. It was a risk. One that paid off big time for me … I brought the Fujifilm X-Pro1 (with the Carl Zeiss 12mm lens) into a environment that “makes or breaks”… the Yellow Stone Cave in Hunan China. The Yellow Stone Cave is one of the most intriguing cave network in the world – in fact it’s the biggest in the world and only about one tenth of the whole cave is open to visitors. This is where I challenged the X-Pro1 to the “low-light” test…..
