Ok, I’ve just told you here, how an image, taken with the X-Pro1, made the front page of the Wall Street Journal.

Of course it’s just mere luck, because we all know that X-gear is no PRO gear… I mean, no Full Frame, No IBIS… no Good!

But I have to report again, that despite the evident limits of the X-system (that make it basically unusable for serious work) X-shooter Mário Cruz was able to Win the First Prize of the World Press Photo (Category “Stories”) using the old and obsolete (and now super-cheap) Fujifilm X-Pro1!

Moreover, as noticed by the Spanish site quesabesde, the Fujifilm X-Pro1 is the only mirrorless camera with intercheangable lenses that snapped a winner image at the World Press Photo 2016… and it has NO back-illuminted sensor!!!

DSLRs (and especially Canon) dominate the ranking… but it’s the Fuji X-Pro1 to keep the MILC flag flying ;)

Fuji X-series cameras already made the cover of the TIME magazine (story here), won the World Photography Arts&Culture Award 2015 (story here), were good enough for God’s work (story here), captured America’s most hated man (story here), made the front page of the Wall Street Journal (story here) and more…

Ok, now I’ll go out and blame my X-gear for the pictures I can’t take ;)

once again, have a GREAT weekend
