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

I'm an amateur photographer that sometimes gets paid for what I do (therefore making me a part time professional [I guess]). My last camera body is a Canon 5D Mark II and own a variety of L glass zooms and good quality Canon primes. I enjoy shooting landscapes, nature, street, and event work. I was looking for a camera that's lighter than my 5D Mark II to utilize for travel and doesn't short in image quality. I'm pretty passionate in the art of photography.
At the time of this review, the current cameras in the mirrorless market for me was this camera, the Sony NEX-7, and the Olympus OM-D E-M5. All of these cameras have pros and cons and I played the game debating which camera system is best to invest in. I eventually went with the Fujifilm X-Pro 1 and am quite satisfied. This reviews covers my thoughts on it.
Update (4/2013): I've been shooting with this camera for over a year. I've updated parts of my review. Still a solid entry in the market.
1. Image Sensor:
This is probably the biggest reason why I enjoy this camera so much. This bold take on the APS-C-sized image sensor design is pretty legit. When the ISO is cranked up to 3200, there's absolutely zero color noise (or any noise) and images look pretty sharp. The dynamic range is impressive with a good amount of detail brought on in darks and shadows and good control over blowout on the high end. Colors are typically spot on unless it's red. JPG file output are screaming quality. Daytime photos look great. Nighttime photos look great. Still a lot of flex with my Lightroom workflow. The image quality is just as good as the RAW output on the 5DMkII.
2. Prime Lens Library:
Prime lenses typically equate to high quality photos, and Fujifilm went and released prime lenses for the general range. I went and picked up the 18mm f/2, 35mm f/1.4, and 60mm lenses f/2.4. This translates for 35mm full-frame users to a near-28mm (for landscape work), near-50mm (for the normal-angle style), and near-85mm focal length (great for portrait). The glass for all 3 of these lenses are sharp and contrasty and have performed wonderfully in my use. The bokeh quality for all these lenses is creamy, however, depth of field isn't as shallow as full-frame, as expected, but should be noted.
Update (4/2013): Focus has been sped up for many lenses thanks to Fujifilm's constant dedication to pushing through updated firmware. Another firmware will be coming up when they release the new telephoto zoom. I just picked up their 14mm prime and love the performance and build.
3. Hybrid Viewfinder:
I'm loving the hybrid viewfinder. Want to shoot SLR style? Hit the switch and you get the Electronic Viewfinder. It's a bit sluggish but gets the job done in low light stills regardless.
(Update 4/2013) It's faster, needs focus peaking like the competition.
The optical viewfinder is great if you don't want lose that moment with the click. There are electronic frame lines in the optical view finder to help frame composition and it's nice to see them adjust with the quality of light available. The frame lines also adjust for parallax effect as you adjust the focal length which is pretty intriguing and implemented pretty well.
One thing I truly enjoy with this camera's viewfinder is the hyperfocal distance meter integrated in the manual focus bar. When the camera is set at a certain aperture and focal length, (which is great when shooting street or group) the camera gives you an idea what's in focus. Pair that with the image sensor capabilities and you get a pretty lethal combination when out on the streets.
It looks like a vintage-style rangefinder camera. It's light. It's black. It doesn't fit in my pocket, but slings around my body with no problem. I picked up a Street Strap - 46" Soft Round Camera Strap for Leica, Micro 4/3, Fuji Cameras with Round Rings and like how low-profile (black rope), durable, and functional it is and feel it pairs well with the camera.
(Update 4/2013) Thanks to Fuji's attention to complaints, the autofocus has been drastically improved for all the lenses. It's quite responsive, but will never replace phase detect focusing that's integrated to other cameras. Here's hoping this is introduced in the X-Pro2.
2. Quirky Firmware:
(Update 4/2013) It doesn't really crash or perform funny anymore. It's either I've adapted, or they squashed all the quirks through the firmware updates.
3. RAW Support:
(Update 4/2013) Adobe and Apple now have RAW support. No longer an issue.
4. Battery Life:
I took it to an Occupy protest with some heavy use. I ran through 2 batteries in a quarter of a day. I have to further study how much of what drains the battery. At other times, the battery goes a good part of the day.
5. It's Not Weather-Sealed.
This camera doesn't shoot like an SLR. There's a curve to learning how to harness the camera and the operation manual is a valuable resource in helping use this thing. Please be mindful.
As discussed in other reviews, once you get its quirks. The thing is capable of outputting some seriously quality imagery.
(Update 4/2013) After over a year of use. The only other camera that has my attention is the Fujifilm X100S, and it's mainly because of its upgrades to focusing and that built-in 35mm equiv focal length lens (have to wait for end of the year for the 35mm equiv prime from what it looks like now). The image quality of this camera continues to impress. Its focus... not so much, however it's much much better than what it was before. It's my workhorse and companion. It goes with me everywhere, I'm looking forward to where Fujifilm is going in the future with this flagship camera and cameras to come.
This camera is ideal for photographers that are familiar with cameras already and understand histograms and have a good grasp in manual control.
It's great for street photography, low light stills, model photography, travel photography, wedding photography, and landscape work. It's not so great for sports and maybe fast kids. Rangefinders aren't typically ideal for sports anyway, yes? Crank the aperture and ISO and prefocus when working with kids.
Comments, criticisms, and questions welcome.
I've included some example images and a optical viewfinder example and further discussion of it in the user-submitted photos of this camera.
The image quality is superb in every respect. All of the available lenses are world-class in both quality and precision. The hybrid viewfinder is fantastic. Construction quality, both body and lenses, is also top-notch. Both are made with metal. Imagine that!
I like this camera more than my Canon 5D Mark III, which is bigger, heavier, more difficult to use, and over three times more expensive.
Oh, I do have one complaint--Fujifilm makes lousy lens caps that are hard to put on and always seem to fall off in the bag. That's why I replaced the stock lens caps with Canon equivalents. (I feel like a Ferrari owner complaining about the gas cap.)
Is a Leica M better? In some ways yes, in some ways no. But you can buy a six-pack of X-Pro1s for the cost of one Leica. And, frankly, I think that the difference in photo quality between the two systems is negligible.
I use this camera everyday now. And though I want a working X-Pro2, there is no way I will let this thing go. Love it for it's quirks, can't beat the price, and right now, it has become my primary X-Body with the X-T1 playing second fiddle. I still like my Canon gear, but this camera is the greatest camera I almost never owned. Glad I found it late, and wondering why I elected the X-T1 over it... Guess the EVF wowed me and at the time it had better AF speed. Still does, but that is not what is important for some things.
Edit June 2, 2016: Dropped my review to 3 stars. Why? Because the price went up. At roughly 5 bills this is an exceptional 5 star camera. Bring it back up to 8 bills... Not so much. The OVF is great, but not that great for a few year old camera. Look at the X-E2 instead. Darn glad I got mine when I did.
