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

Share

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.

Detailed report at Photorumors (Click here) and hands-on pics at Alinpopescu (Click here).

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).

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!
