Plenty of new X PRO 1 news and tests (wins four awards at CES)

Good Morning! Here are the very last news about the X PRO 1:

There is a first look article at Cameralabs (Click here): “The Fujifilm X-Pro1 takes mirror-less ILCs to a higher ground than any company other than Leica has done to date. It unashamedly targets enthusiasts with an innovative sensor and viewfinder packed into a retro-styled body with nostalgic analogue controls and a choice of three high quality prime lenses at launch.”

Brian Lam from TheAtlantic (Click here) wrote about the X PRO 1: “This is the only gadget at the show that melts my heart every time I think about it. I want this more than anything else I’ve seen at the show, and I think I might get one over the also amazing Sony NEX-7 Camera, which is technically astounding but has a mediocre lens selection that is not worthy of a $1300 camera.

The X PRO 1 already won four prices! The CNET “Best of CES 2012” Best Camera; Popular Science “CES 2012 Product of the Future”; Popular Mechanics “CES 2012 Editor’s Choice Award”; Tom’s Guide “Best of CES 2012” (Source: Imaging Resource).

There is a full interview with Kayce Baker (maging Division of Fujifilm North America Corp) at Imaging Resource (Click here). She confirms that she “saw” a 14mm f/1.4 on the official X lens roadmap. And she also said organic sensors will not be used for digital camera sensors (at least not in near future).

You don’t have to forget that finally the Fuji X-S1 is also available! Digitalcamerainfo (Click here) posted a first impression review of the camera: “It’s built around an oversized sensor with one of the most solid, well-constructed chassis we’ve ever seen in the category. It maintains all of the native versatility and comfortable handling of a regular bridge camera, too.” The only real problem they see is the…price! Too expensive!
