Mastering X-PRO1 at Amazon GER + X-PRO1 review


Mastering the X-PRO1 (…advantages and disadvantages compared to the AF of a DSLR)

The “Fujifilm X-Pro1 Handbuch” (click here) is now available at Amazon GER. The first reviews at Amazon are really enthusiastic. Buyers say that this book is full of useful tips and tricks. It’s of course also a very technical book. The reader should have a basic knowledge of photography before reading this book. But it’s well written, so that also not so well-versed photographers could find this book very useful. Rico (the author) leads you deep inside the technical aspects of the X-PRO1 without getting lost in details.

A useful book, also for X-100 [and X-E1] users, and also for those who are coming from DSLR cameras. What can they expect from this camera? At chapter 2.4 for example, Rico explains very clearly the differences, advantages and disadvantages compared to the autofocus of a DSLR.

From Amazon US: “Mastering the Fujifilm X-Pro 1 provides a wealth of experienced-based information and insights for owners of the new X-Pro 1 camera. Readers will learn about the features and capabilities of the X-Pro 1 and will discover numerous tips and tricks for how to maximize its potential.

US citizens have still to wait for this useful book to be available at Amazon US (click here to preorder).

X-PRO1 review

Here is another “real life” review. No studio crew, no editorial staff. Just give this camera in the hands of a photographer. So you can read, for example, that of course the X-PRO1 is smaller than a DSLR, but “my point is this: we specialise in documentary wedding photography, and at a wedding, I think this camera will allow us to get closer to people and capture images without the intrusion a pro DSLR camera/lens combo can often bring. This means more natural images and a less obvious presence of the photographer, this is good!I can’t remember a single person even taking any notice of me and the little camera.” I’ll just tell you the title of his post: X-PRO1 part 1… WOW! (click here). Yes, there will be a part 2. He will talk about OVF versus EVF, image quality, ISO performance, off camera flash and Lightroom 4 workflow… we are waiting for it!

iPad App

And one more thing: Version 2.0.0 of the offical X-PRO1 guidebook is now available for the iPad (click here). From the descriptions: “This is an official guidebook for the premium interchangeable lens camera, FUJIFILM X-Pro1. It is intended to help users enjoy photography even more with tips on how to use each of the various functions. It also includes an interview of photographer Mr.Yoichi Sone on the spectaculars of X-Pro1 and a gallery of his works from Macao. The guidebook will also provide users with instructions on how to use the attached RAW file converter, RAW FILE CONVERTER EX powered by SILKYPIX®.”
