X PRO 1 studio samples at Dpreview (and some more news)


Finally Dpreview (Click here) updated their studio samples database by including Fuji X PRO 1 images converted via Adobe Camera Raw! You can finally play around with their tool to see if the Fuji beats the rest of the world or not :)

Cnet UK (Click here) posted their X PRO 1 review: “The X-Pro1 lets you revel in the very essence of photography, and it encourages you to spend more time thinking about your shot before you take it.

And our reader Fred sent us his X PRO 1 imrpession report (Thanks!):
I would say that 80% of the pictures were taken with auto-focus; I used both the 35mm and the 60mm; Multicoated UV Filter from B+W on both lenses; I took RAW’s and converted later in-camera (yes, Fuji and Adobe could REALLY work that out, it would help a lot, but the JPEGs are really beautiful); I also used the OVF for most shots, although after one month I just realized I’ve been using the EVF more and more (I never had a camera with one before, so it’s an adjustment, no questions about it); A lot of these JPEGs have the VIVID film simulation, so a few are a bit strong color-wise.
Did I miss shots because of AF speed? DEFINITELY. Did I wish I had not lost them? Certainly. Did I curse the X-Pro, Fuji, or wished I had my D-700 back with me? NOT FOR A SINGLE MINUTE! Are there some quirks and things that could be improved? yes, there are, but with a new camera – and a new system and sensor at that – I think it is to be expected. The pros and cons, for me at least, still point solidly towards the X-Pro 1.
Perhaps if you make a living out of photographing skydivers or weddings were you can’t miss THE moment, period, unfortunately this may not be the perfect camera yet. And as some have stated, people don’t even look twice at you with the X-Pro, something I suffered with in the past, doing my work on the streets with the D-700. As a “pro-sumer” and after one month with my X-Pro, now with the 60mm, I’m finding that I’m loving it more each day. Especially as I and her get properly acquainted. I’m looking forward to see were Fuji takes this system.

    At high ISO Fuji really shines – what happened to chroma noice…. Interesting with BW from ISO 6400.
    Looking at detail at normal ISO, the Fuji has lower contrast with less eye-cathing results than f.i. Oly EM5. But really looking for fine detail (feathers) there shows more detail than APS-C and m43. But less than Nikon D800.
    About the AF: Read on a blog, the using having also a Pana GF1: The Fuji AF is clearly better than with the GF1. Just to bring proportion to the problem.
    Then ther is immaturity in general and processor read-out frequency/EVF…..

    • Shooting daytime at high ISOs on the X-Pro1 in black and white is really something. The low noise resembles grain on Tri-X or HP5, giving a distinctive film feel, something that I could not achieve with black and white conversion. The black and white applications are better than the Gorman conversion method, which makes the pictures look, shall we say, conversion-y.

      The contrast and dynamic range can be adjusted and can do what it is expected to do. The problems lie with the post-lag on the EVF and with the slow AF. That will be corrected as it was with the X100.

    we need to take those samples on DPREVIEW as they are – these come from *BETA* ACR, so that’s not really what camera is capable of. I’ve seen the same RAW files processed in SilkyPix and they aren’t as soft as the ones coming from BETA Adobe Camera RAW. Still, I’m glad that there will be support in ACR of X-Pro1.

    Hope that Sean at ReidReviews soon gets his hands on the beta LR! It will be very interesting to see his evaluation: Chroma noice is gone – what happens to detail then?
