It’s time to have a break from rumors, deals and comparisons and to focus on what’s all about when you hold an X-series camera in your hands: taking pictures!
So here is another small selection of persons who waited under the rain for the perfect shot, who took the X-PRO1 and hiked through the Bolivian mountains, who translated feelings into images and who looked for the right light source at night before pressing the shutter-release button!
That’s what we have an X for, isn’t it? So let yourself be inspired by the shots of X-shooters in this post and then go out and take some pictures with your X (and if you don’t have it, then buy it! The X-superkit deals run until DEC 24 at AmazonUS, BHphoto and Adorama. You can save up to $1,400 on all XF lenses.)

I have been following FR from the begining. I bought a [shoplink 15293]X100[/shoplink] (wow!!) and after taste the capabilities I decided to buy [shoplink 12882]X-Pro 1[/shoplink] (wow!!^2), while a long pre-order waiting due delays to supply the first units, finally I had it !!. Now after more than one year, I‘m still in love. So, I glad to present trough this time a porfolio www.rawcb.com Almost all photos with the X-pro 1 and a few with the X100.

My husband and I went to Bolivia this September and took our Fuji X-Pro1 for a real challenge. After many years using slr + iphone on the trips Fuji X-Pro1 was very different. Although it is not the lightest and most compact camera, it is a great option for travel photography.
Stealthy look and ability to review photos in viewfinder are really handy (as well as obvious advantages of having all settings visible with camera turned off) in the country where a digital camera worth a yearly salary.
In every aspect the camera was performing top notch with the only exception of battery life. We were getting around 900 shots per charge and had to carry 3 extra batteries (which was barely enough during 4 day backpacking trip). Hope you enjoy this immense beauty as well as we did:

I have been an X-Shooter for close to one year now. In December 2012 i got an X-E1 ([shoplink 12887]Kit Zoom[/shoplink] + XF 35) and added a X100 in February. I came from a Nikon system but hadn’t been passionate about my photography for a few years prior to switching to Fuji.
A lot has happened in the last year. I documented everything on my Blog. There were some highlights like a Street/Portrait Workshop with Photographer Alberto Garcia Alix where I only used the X100, which is still my favorite for street stuff. A few weeks ago I also attended one of the Fuji X-M1 Workshops that you promoted on your site and was so energized by the great photographer who gave the workshop, that I set out on a spontaneous road trip to the see.
To make a long story short, of 106 photos in my new portfolio on 500px.com close to 100 were shot with a Fuji camera throughout the last ten months. Right now I am eagerly awaiting the new weather-sealed body and the X-Pro2. Keep up the great work here, I am a huge fan.

[UDPATE: Marvin took his X-E2 and 35mm out for a night shots session here: ” All taken with the 35mm almost always wide open, iso between 800 and 3200 and shutter speed between 60 and a 100th, handheld – it was much darker than it seems. […] AF is super fast now, too.”]
