From the Manufacturer
The Fujifilm X-Pro1 features a 16-megapixel APS-C X-Trans CMOS sensor, a brand-new X lens mount, Hybrid Multi Viewfinder and three prime lenses (sold separately).
Fujifilm X-Pro 1 Highlights
Setting new standards in image resolution
FUJIFILM have developed a new CMOS sensor called the X-Trans CMOS. The X-Trans CMOS sensor is capable of delivering resolution that is parallel, if not superior, to a full frame sensor. The new color filter array paves the way for an ideal sensor that does not need an optical low-pass filter. While the optical low-pass filter is indispensable for the reduction of moiré and false color generated by conventional sensors, it also degrades resolution. FUJIFILM has developed a new color filter array that is inspired by the random arrangement of fine film grain, removing the need for an optical low-pass filter to solve moiré and false color issues. In the array, RGB pixels are arranged in 6x6 pixel sets with high aperiodicity (randomness). Increasing the degree of randomness eliminates the fundamental cause of moiré and false colors – a problem that occurs in conventional arrays when shooting stripes and other repeating patterns. The presence of an R, G and B pixel in every vertical and horizontal pixel series minimizes the generation of false colors and delivers higher color reproduction. As a result of using a film-inspired array, a more powerful EXR Processor Pro is required to process the image signal data. This development will maximize the full potential of the X-Trans CMOS sensor and deliver high speed and high precision image processing.
Prime FUJINON XF lenses deliver the highest image quality
Fujinon lenses have long been associated with delivering high quality images, with optics used for both broadcast TV and medium format cameras. Now the expertise borne out of this enviable optical heritage has been put into lenses for the FUJIFILM X-Pro1. Three compact XF Fujinon fast aperture prime lenses will be sold separately. The "XF18mmF2 R", "XF 35mmF1.4 R" and "XF60mmF2.4 R Macro" all offer precise control over depth-of-field and deliver excellent out-of-focus bokeh thanks to the design of the molded aperture diaphragm blades. The blades are curved to create a circular image at all aperture settings, while the very edges of each blade are meticulously rounded off rather than simply cut off, which delivers a sharper image. In addition, the solid feel of the high-quality metal barrel and detailed exposure setting in 1/3 step increments using the aperture ring fuel your desire to capture more photos with every shot.
FUJIFILM original "X-Mount" maximizes lens performance
Specifically designed to maximize the mirrorless design of the body the X-Mount has a short flange back distance of just 17.7mm. This means the rear lens elements are as close as possible to the sensor. The wide opening allows the lens to be mounted deeper within the body – up to 7.5mm (approx) from the mount surface – reducing the back focus distance of each lens to the minimum possible, thus achieving high resolution all the way to the edge of the image.
Hybrid Multi Viewfinder
FUJIFILM's revolutionary Hybrid Viewfinder first appeared in the X100. With its ability to instantly switch between an Optical Viewfinder and Electronic Viewfinder the Hybrid Viewfinder has added a new dimension to the pleasure of composing photographs. For the brightest viewing image, and to keep shutter lag to a minimum, users should choose the Optical Viewfinder. Those wanting focus confirmation, exposure information, white balance information and depth of field indicators should switch to Electronic Viewfinder. The Electronic Viewfinder provides an excellent "Live View" of your composition. This fusion of technologies allows users to enjoy composing their images through a bright viewfinder, but has the option to overlay vital picture taking information should this be required. Changing between the two viewfinders is simple, thanks to the switch on the front of the X-Pro1 body. When attaching a FUJINON XF-series lens on X-Pro1, both the viewfinder magnification and bright frame size automatically switch to support the lens focal length. Viewfinder magnification switches to 0.37x for the 18mm lens, and to 0.60x when the 35mm or 60mm lens is mounted, letting you compose your shot with the bright, crystal clarity of an optical image. The X-Pro1 also gives you the freedom to manually set a focal distance and switch between viewfinder magnifications.
Cutting edge technology in a beautiful camera body
- The top and base are made from die-cast aluminum alloy which, combined with high quality touches like precise engraving on the top-plate and hand-enamelled lettering on the lenses, underlines the fact that the entire X-Pro1 system is built without compromise.
- This eye for detail extends to the shutter speed dial and exposure compensation control that is precision milled from solid metal. Details like the shutter speed dial lock mechanism and the recessed exposure compensation dial are designed to prevent accidental movement of settings. The knurled finish on the sides of the dials feature rows of minutely milled squared pyramids for superb grip and confidence.
- "Made in Japan" confirms that every part of the construction has had to meet FUJIFILM's highest standards.
- The lightweight, precision-milled lens hood (included with the lens) has been exclusively designed and machined from aluminum for the FUJINON XF lens. It's compact size delivers superb light shading performance in a design that perfectly matches X-Pro1 styling.
- Diameters of the aperture ring and focus ring of the 3 Fujinon XF-series interchangeable lenses are only slightly larger than the barrel for sleek uniformity of design. Precision machined from metal, the reassuring click of the aperture ring at each setting and the comfortable torque resistance when operating the focus ring enhances the shooting experience.
- The X-Pro1's leather-like finish designed for a quality look and durability. The synthetic leather offers resistance to the elements and high durability, while an original manufacturing process produces a texture with the look and feel of authentic leather.
- The X-Pro1 has been designed with the photographer's comfort in mind. The natural fit of the eyepiece provides excellent shielding from light leakage. A dioptric adjustment lens can also be attached.
- In film cameras, multiple exposures is the unique photographic technique of superimposing one image on another by double exposing a single frame of film. Through advanced digital processing the X-Pro1 can simulate this technique - just select Multiple Exposure mode and take your first shot. By viewing it in the Hybrid Multi Viewfinder or on the LCD screen, you can see how the finished multiple exposure will look and precisely frame the second shot.
- Further enhancements have been made to the Film Simulation modes with the new Professional Color Negative Film Modes (Pro Neg. Std and Pro Neg. Hi) designed for X-Pro1 users working in the studio. If you'd like to shoot the same scene in a variety of Film Simulation modes, the X-Pro1 offers Film Simulation bracketing, along with AE, Dynamic and ISO bracketing.
- FUJIFILM has also included Film Simulation modes, where the X-Pro1 simulates the colors and tonal qualities of popular FUJIFILM emulsions. These include the vibrant colors of Velvia, the softer skin tones of ASTIA and the natural look of PROVIA.
- Enhance Monochrome Expression with Color Filters - Replicating the effects of monochrome film photography the X-Pro1 lets you use color filters to expand your photographic interpretation. Heighten contrast with the yellow filter and red filter or brighten greens and deepen reds with the green filter. Just as professional film photographers once selected a filter and printing paper to complement their creative vision, you can easily fine tune image quality with these filters. For those after a more nostalgic theme there's a sepia filter too.
Top Customer Reviews
On introduction, the X-Pro1 intrigued me greatly. I had previously used Leica film rangefinders and loved using them but digital changed all my working methods and film no longer fit into the equation. The new X-Pro1 seemed like the camera to replace the M6's. But I had recently retired and I could not justify the cost of another camera system. Spending $1700 on a camera body alone and then shelling out for a series of lenses was out of the question. So I continued along with my digital Canons and old Olympus 4/3 systems, both of which were performing quite well. So I didn't even take notice of the announcement of the new X-Pro2 and the improvements it offered. Then I stumbled upon the close-out pricing of the X-Pro1. Really? The camera body is selling for 500 bucks? Could I really pass this up? This is likely my last chance to get my hands on an almost Leica rangefinder-like digital camera. So I bought an X-Pro1 with 27mm pancake lens for a bargain kit price. And then I bought another lens. And another body. And another lens. And then even more lenses. And I'm lovin' using this stuff.
Why do I love the X-Pro1? It really does handle a lot like Leica rangefinders from the film days. People raved about the Hybrid Viewfinder when the camera was first introduced. To me, the main attraction is not the hybridization of the viewfinder or the electronic viewfinder (EVF), it's the optical viewfinder (OVF) with bright lines for the lenses. If you are gonna use the OVF, you have to be willing to accept some compromises. Compromises like parallax error, limited focal length range, limited close focus ability and only close approximations of what shows up in the final photos by what is shown in the viewfinder. I'm okay with all of these but I know many people are not. Personally, I dislike EVFs. I know they are popular these days but I don't like the video game look of the image, the view that's overly bright in low light and dimly washed out in bright light or the assault to my vision of the electronic image as it pops in my eye. I like the window on reality the OVF offers.
So other than the OVF, what else do I like about the X-Pro1? Well, the lenses are superb. Right now I own five Fujinon XF lenses. Not a loser in the bunch. Wide open or stopped down, the images are excellent. I'm sure the techno geek pixel magnifier would find aberrations and imperfections galore but I'm not interested in that stuff. I'm interested in pictures. And my pictures with the XF lenses are just fine, thank you. I'm sure the X-trans sensor has a lot to do with this but I've owned Fujinon lenses in years past (large format lenses for 4x5) and I know Fuji can build outstanding optics.
I also like the autofocus of the XP1. I know, I know--the camera's AF has been criticized to kingdom come by reviewers over the years. But, fact is, the AF of the XP1 is faster and more accurate by far than my abilities to manually focus Leica rangefinders...or manually focus SLR lenses. Besides, Fuji has improved the AF performance with firmware updates over the years and, really, the AF now ain't bad. I'm happy with this feature.
Negatives? Yeah...nothing is perfect. One of the things I've come to love about digital cameras over the years has been the ability to program the camera to your own working methods and forget about it from that point on. There are tons of features on my cameras that I have never used and will never use. I've been doing the photography thing for nearly 45 years now and I think I've hit on what works for me, what doesn't work for me and what doesn't matter to me. Digital cameras in general make it easier for me to take pictures. There is one thing about the X-Pro1 that sorta drives me crazy--something it shares with every other "mirrorless" camera I've used (my DSLRs don't seem to have this problem). There are so many buttons to configure the camera to so many features there's less room for gripping the camera without pushing a button or flipping a switch. Many times I've picked up the camera to take a picture and it's in movie mode or playback or live view or macro some other mode I don't want. I wish there was a way to turn off the features I don't want and kill the function of the buttons that bring up these modes (like in my DSLRs). It should be easy for the camera designers to do this in the main menu. It should be easy to figure out that a human hand has to grip somewhere and that particular somewhere is not a place to put buttons, dials or levers. Ergonomically, the XP1 could be better in this respect. (UPDATE: There is a method to turn off some of the back buttons that get in the way, I later discovered. Hold down the MENU/SET button for about two seconds and it will turn off the 4-way UP/DOWN/LEFT/RIGHT controller. Also adding a Lensmate thumb grip to the XP1s gives me a place to put that digit. These help considerably in preventing accidentally pressing buttons. The PLAY and DISP/BACK buttons still can get in the way at times but I can live with it.)
In the end, the most important thing about a camera is how the picture looks that you get from the camera. This is where the XP1 shines brightest. I've shot Raw format since day one with digital. I've used various Raw processors and worked on each photo carefully to get the most out of it I could. I saved my images as TIFFs for years until I decided the file sizes were burdensome and the difference in quality between my Raw-processed and saved TIFFs and my Raw-processed and saved JPEGs was trivial. I could still print heavily cropped 13x19 images that looked good from JPEG files. When I started shooting with the XP1, I tried out Raw+JPEG and discovered the JPEGs out of the camera was so good I seldom touched the Raw images. (UPDATE: This procedure didn't last very long. I soon found the Fuji film simulations simply don't fit my preferences in color palettes. I know they are popular with many photographers and they initially impressed me. However, I quickly tired of them and started processing the Raw images in Lightroom with the Adobe standard instead. Luckily, the Fuji Raw files are easy to work with and look extraordinary despite some early criticisms of Lightroom's ability to process them. To my eyes, the colors are truer and less yellow biased when the Raw files are used instead of the JPEGs. I also was extremely bothered by Fuji's tendency to turn red into bright orange. It's a personal matter...your preferences might lean in the other direction.)
I love this camera. I love using it. I love the way my pictures look when taken with this camera. I love the lenses, the X-trans sensor, the OVF and the retro look and feel involved. It's not perfect but perfection is unattainable anyway. At around 500 bucks, it's the bargain of the decade but it's a bargain that will be short lived. The XP1 is discontinued and, once they're sold out, there will no longer be any new $500 X-Pros. I bought two.
A great camera.
So here's why I love this camera...
• I love the rangefinder-style design (the parallax correction in the optical viewfinder is great) and the electronic viewfinder makes achieving my desired result a breeze.
• The manual dials are great to work with (though I hope Fuji adopts the X100T style controls for all of their future cameras).
• The image quality is excellent and high ISO is so clean. I love the colors! I often use the Astia color preset. Black and white is excellent too, of course, and my preference is for high contrast with a red filter.
• The size and weight are just right--it feels so solid. I quite like the sound of the shutter over the Nikon CLA-CLACK. Quite a bit quieter than a traditional DSLR, but not much.
Any cons? Not really, for me, but maybe this will help you...
The X-Pro 1 is not a fast focusing camera. That's okay, I don't need rapid speed auto-focus. You shouldn't even be looking at Fuji if you are thinking of it as a bird and sports camera. In fact, if you need high-speed, erratic subject tracking I'd stay with a DSLR. Their focus system is just not quite there yet. It will be, one day. I tend to pre-focus to overcome this. The manual focus with focus peaking is so fun to use that I have the camera set with back-button AF so I can always see focus peaking and use whatever I need to based on the situation.
Finding a flash trigger that works was a pain. Thank God for the internetz. I found the WEIN IR Trigger and that was the ticket for me.
Fuji lenses are out of this world. Super sharp, great bokeh characteristics, and practically no color fringing/chromatic aberration in my wide open shots with light sources behind subjects (read: sun). Right now, I'm using this mainly with the Fuji 56mm f/1.2. Incredible portrait lens. Crazy sharp wide open and it just gets better stopping down. Out of focus smoothness is really nice. My next lens choice will be the upcoming 16mm f/1.4. For lighting, I use manual flash with Yongnuo 560s and a WEIN IR Trigger to give me 1/250s shutter speeds.
The Fuji system is a joy to use in all aspects of my photography. It's small, lightweight, and looks sharp, but has all the functions I need for work and personal photos. For me this thing just fits like a glove. I have no idea if this camera is right for you, this is just my experience. Go pick one up and try it out.
They've got an X-Pro 2 coming. I'm very interested in it. Will I sell this camera to help fund that? Nope.
