New Fuji X PRO 1 reviews and news…

new video shot with the X PRO 1

Fuji X-Pro 1 first look at EosHD (Click here): “I just cannot see what such a highly priced camera offers over the NEX 7 other than retro styling and a 1970′s optical viewfinder with some 2012 trimmings. And I cannot see what the lenses and dated AF system offers over the Olympus 45mm F1.8 for Micro Four Thirds or Sony NEX 50mm F1.8 which cost half of what the Fuji optics do. Superior technology, for less money.

Full Fuji X PRO 1 review at ePhotozine (Click here): “The image quality is stunning, with excellent, and I really mean excellent pixel level detail, with excellent colour reproduction, great dynamic range, excellent high ISO noise results and excellent JPEG output straight from the camera.

Luminous Landscape (Click here) posted the first part of their review.
The spanish Quesabesde (Click here to read the google translation): “Their level of detail and resolution in combination with the three approaches is very high, and performance with high sensitivity is really excellent, with shots at ISO 6400 where the sharpness and saturation of the image does not suffer and chromatic noise are not makes an appearance.

Hope to get my hands on the camera soon!

First X PRO 1 review from Norwegen. And plenty of more image samples!

The norwegian website Fotomagasinet (Click here to read the english google translation) posted: “After testing a few hundred cameras in my life, I have become quite spoiled, but the X-PRO1 impressed me. There are of course some things are not quite optimal – we can imagine a better electronic viewfinder, sealing, image stabilization in camera body and of course, better battery life. However, compared with the positive – a camera that is relatively small, discreet, quiet, with stunning picture quality a unique viewfinder and ergonomics that work, the weaknesses quite small in comparison.

ePhotozine posted image samples taken with all three diferent lenses: The 35mm f/1.4 (Click here to see), The 18mm f/2.0 (Click here to see), The 60mm macro (Click here to see). Also Photographyblog (Click here) posted a set of photos. A hands-on review has been posted at Amateur Photographer (Click here).


New Fuji X PRO 1 tests!

Our readers keep sending me more and more news about the X PRO 1. Here are the latest two:

1) “Image samples from Fujifilm X-Pro1 (not pre-production!) showing ISO-performance and center/corner sharpess of the 18 mm and 35 mm lenses:
Norwegian words:
Senterskarphet = center sharpness
Hjørneskarphet = corner sharpness

2) “I am a professional wedding/portrait/travel photographer in Canada who has been recently engaged by Fujifilm Canada to shoot some promotional images with a pre-preproduction X-Pro 1 for their upcoming product launch in Canada. They have also asked me to provide feedback about the camera system to them.
They have asked me not to share any images I shoot (yet) as they want to present them to the press/public at the product launch, however, they gave me permission to discuss my thoughts about the camera.
I have written a “working review” as I have been using the camera for a week in my studio on live client work. Fujifilm really wanted to know how the camera performs on the job, so I approached my review from that “working photographer” perspective.
