New Fuji X PRO 1 test!

 


It looks like Romania photographers are having a special connection to Fuji. this is already the second exclusive test posted by a Romanian photographer!

After vladdodan.ro website (Click here) now you can see a new test at F64 (Click here). The reviewer compared the ISO results with the Fuji X100 and Nikon D3. His conclusions in short:

1) At high ISO the X PRO 1 beats both the e X100 and D3 cameras.
2) Shutter noise is similar to that of the Zeiss Ikon.
3) The 18mm lens suffers from some purple fringing (but Fuji could add an automatic lens correction once finalized the firmware).
4) manual focusing has been improved over the X100 but the reviewer is still not completely satisfied with the performance. Also autofocus isn’t really fast.
5) What matters: Image quality is spectacular.

Thanks Romania! Without you we would havn’t seen any ISO test at all! :)

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).
