Fuji X-Pro1: Portraits

Portraits with the Fuji X-Pro1 I’ve been shooting with the Fuji X-Pro1 now for a couple of weeks and I wanted to give my impressions on the camera, the handling, and how it performs when shooting portraits. I used the Fuji X-Pro1 with the Fujinon XF 35mm F1.4 R Lens. My goals were to show how easy it was to get the camera, attach a lens, and with minimal setup, start shooting. With this in mind, not special film simulations were used. Camera setting were all in default mode, ISO set to Auto, And aperture set to Auto. I shot these […]

Fuji X-Pro1 Review. By Ken Rockwell Fuji X-Pro1 can be found at Adorama He has many interesting findings of the camera regarding handling and some much deserved praise for Fuji’s Fujinon 35mm f1.4 lens. Sharper and better than Leica??  You be the judge. Also the low light capabilities are in line with what I’ve found as well as many others. Just amazing!! I’ll be posting some real world low light images for you to see also and I agree with him that the Fuji X-Pro1 is a photographers camera, something that a lot of us have been waiting a long […]

Fuji X-Pro-1 - Unboxing

Fuji X-Pro-1 – Unboxing Fuji X-Pro-1 Body It’s interesting to note that the packaging for the Fuji x-pro 1 is not as nice in my opinion then the Fuji X1oo. The packaging for the x100 was something of a collector’s camera with the faux velvet where the camera sits and the box lid that is held in with ribbon that’s more a kin to a presentation box. This camera is more expensive, similar quality, and the flag ship of the fuji line yet it has a more subdued packaging then the x100. That all being said, I don’t mind it […]
