Passion for photography and unrelentingly high-standards are what drives the Fujifilm X-Pro1 Digital Camera. Proudly made in Japan, every part of the X-Pro1 - from the sensor to the knurled finish of the mode dials - was painstakingly produced with an extreme attention to detail. Harkening back to a time when cameras had the kind of weight to them that gave a photographer confidence, Fujifilm has designed the X-Pro1 with a die-cast aluminum top and base, a leather like finish on the main body for grip and the look and feel of authentic leather, a natural fitting eyepiece, and other elegant touches like precise engraving on the top-plate. This level of attention to design and a photographer's comfort when shooting makes it almost hard to believe the X-Pro1 is a modern digital camera.

That being said, the X-Pro1 is very much a digital camera, combining time-tested physical attributes - refined during the film era - and 21st century digital technology. Mirrorless, the camera's X Mount has a short flange back of just 17.7mm, meaning that rear lens elements are as close to the sensor as possible. This reduces the back focus distance of each lens and results in high resolution being achieved all the way to the edge of the image. The sensor is Fujiflm's 16.3Mp APS-C 23.6 x 15.6mm X-Trans CMOS sensor. The X-Trans utilizes a color filter array to attack moiré and false colors, resulting in an exceptionally true-to-life image that sensor's with optical low-pass filters cannot approach. The EXR Processor Pro supports the X-Trans sensor in its mission and works with an integrated co-processor for high speed and precision.

The X-Pro1 also features the Hybrid Multi Viewfinder which allows you to switch between optical and electronic viewfinders. When an XF series lens is mounted to the camera the viewfinder magnification and frame size are automatically adjusted for immediate shooting. The optical viewfinder provides the brightest viewing image and keeps shutter lag to a minimum, while the electronic viewfinder provides focus confirmation, exposure information, white balance information, and depth of field indicators, as well as a "Live View" of your composition.

In addition to the Hybrid Multi Viewfinder, the X-Pro1 has a 3.0" LCD screen with 100% coverage and 1,230,000 dots. Files can be stored to SD/SDHC/SDXC memory cards, and still images can be recorded in JPEG and RAW formats. Of course, the X-Pro1 can also capture H.264 HD video with stereo sound at 1920 x 1080 resolution. External TTL flashes can be attached to the camera using the hot shoe. Additional features include a self-timer, an ISO range of 200-6500 (extended range of 100-25,600), and spot, average, multi-zone, and TTL 256-zone metering options, among other useful functions.

APS-C 16Mp X-Trans CMOS Sensor
Moire is tackled at its root cause by the revolutionary X-Trans CMOS sensor's color filter array. By enhancing aperiodicity (randomness) in the array arrangement, the color filter minimizes generation of both moire and false colors, eliminating the necessity for an optical low-pass filter in the lens and enabling X-Trans CMOS sensor to capture full "unfiltered" lens performance. The EXR Processor Pro is supported by an integrated co-processor for higher speed and higher precision image processing performance

Conventional array
The optical low-pass filter prevents the occurrence of moire and false colors but results in a loss of resolution

New filter array
A higher degree of randomness with an array of 6 x 6 pixel units. Without using an optical low-pass filter, moire and false colors are eliminated while realizing high resolution. Inspired by the natural random arrangement of the fine grains of silver halide in film

X Mount
Taking full advantage of the mirrorless design, the mount boasts a short 17.7mm flange back distance, a wider opening, and deeper mounting of the lens, resulting in reduction of back focus distance to the minimum possible while achieving high resolution extending to the image edge areas. When a FUJINON XF lens is mounted, all lens information is instantly communicated to the body, integrating them into a seamless, responsive instrument
Hybrid Multi Viewfinder
Featuring the freedom to switch between an optical and electronic viewfinder, the Hybrid Viewfinder has evolved to meet the challenges of interchangeable lenses. When an XF series lens is mounted, lens data is communicated to the X-Pro1, and viewfinder magnification (2 types) and frame size (multiple steps) are automatically switched, allowing you to peer through the viewfinder with all of your attention focused on the subject. Every lens change reveals a new world of beauty to capture

Magnifying system
Viewfinder magnification automatically changes when an XF series lens is mounted, and because there is very little noticeable difference in the angle of view when switching between OVF and EVF, viewing in either mode is smooth and natural

    I am a professional wedding and portrait photographer. I purchased this camera to compliment my Canon gear as a small, quiet camera that has great image quality. A lot has been said about this camera online, some good and some bad, some true and some false. Here is my take.

    THE PRO'S:
    Image Quality:
    I have owned many professional cameras in my career with the latest being the Canon 5D Mark II. When it comes to image quality this camera simply does not disappoint. It smokes the 5D Mark II in this category. ISO 3200 looks like the 5Dmkii at ISO 1200. ISO 6400 looks amazing as well, much like the 5D Mark II at around 2000. Even 12,800 ISO delivers a great image. Also, when it comes to noise, it is very different than most cameras. The noise is more like film grain, fine black specks with almost ZERO color noise - perfect!

    Color rendition is almost spot on, I absolutely trust this camera to deliver an amazing color photo in almost all situations.

    Lastly, this camera produces probably the best JPEG images compared to any other camera on the market today

    Functionality:
    This camera is as close to complete silence as a camera can get. It's shutter is nearly undetecable even in a quiet room, great for wedding candids. Not to mention, I LOVE the sound of the shutter, reminds me of a film camera. (Note - make sure to turn on silent mode and turn off Power save mode even if you have to buy 5 extra batteries, btw I have found some third party batteries to work better for this camera.)

    The hybrid viewfinder is wonderful, I love it's versatility. I do wish that the EVF was a bit better though.

    Autofocus Accuracy:
    For all of those worrying about this cameras AF speed, you are forgetting one important thing! AF speed isn't everything in a good AF system. This camera may be slow to focus, but it does not hunt at all in my experience so far like others have said it does, it is just slow to get in focus in low lit situations. BUT, once it does lock on (and it does eventually lock on in every situation) it is DEAD ON ACCURATE even from 200 feet away. No more thinking to yourself "I better check to see if that picture hit perfect focus" after you absolutely chose one AF point and absolutely focused in the right spot using perfect techinque. I literally do not even have to look down at the screen, I KNOW it is in focus EVERY TIME.

    Lenses:
    All the lenses are sharp wide open and consistent with zero distortion. The 35mm f/1.4 is especially good, on par with most Canon L lenses. Great job fuji!

    Film Simulation:
    I love that you can bracket film's in this camera. You can basically take one normal color shot in standard, one BW and one other film type all with one click on the shutter - NICE!

    THE CONS:

    AF Selection:
    FUJI ARE YOU LISTENING! I realllllllly hope they fix this in a firmware update. It is my number one pet-peve with this camera. The AF selection button is on the bottom left hand corner of the back of the camera. EW FUJI! You mean I have to stick my thumb up my nose when I'm looking through the viewfinder to select my AF point. And when I take a vertical shot, I have to squeeze my hand in between my face and the camera to get to it. This is fixable however! The "Fn" button is right beside the shutter, and it would be awesome if they made it possible to select the AF point with that button. Please fix this Fuji!

    Battery Life:
    Is horrible! Buy 3-5 extra batteries depending on what type of photography you are doing.

    Slow AF:
    Yes it is slow, like every other reviewer has said. But in my experience it does not hunt as much as other cameras like the the 5D Mark II. It does eventually lock on, even in bad lighting. And when it does, you got the shot!

    EVF Lag:
    I wish the EVF was perfect, but really there is no perfect EVF yet. I just hope this technology evolves eventually to completely replace the optical viewfinders.

    Size:
    Some people may love the compact size, I kinda wish it was a little bigger. I have big hands and I kinda have to squeeze it to get a good grasp.It would be cool if they came out with a bigger grip for the bottom that maybe held two batteries, even if it didn't have a vertical shutter.

    Flashes available:
    I wish they made a flash available that was in between the size of the EF20 and 42 that had swivel head capabilities

    SD Card Location:
    Why put it by the battery? Why?

    Write Speed:
    Make sure to buy a Sandisk SD card with the new 95/mb per second read/write speed. It makes using this camera a lot better than slow cards. Trust me.

    That's about it! I hope this review gives you an idea of how this camera works!

    I so much wanted to love this camera. Was looking for something lighter to replace my Canon 5D mark 1 with, which I've used since it came out. I was disappointed, as there are many things to like about Fuji X-Pro1, including sleek design, the image quality (really great, especially with the prime lens), but the whole shooting and maintenance experience turned out not so exciting. It has a great potential, for sure, but not there yet. I'd wait till the next model. So, here are the things that influenced my decision to return it:

    1. Focus. The autofocus speed is as slow as the turtle crossing the desert. Really frustrating. The manual focus got me wondering: you see the manually focused image in the electronic viewfinder, and it looks one way. But once you press the shutter button, the image comes out with a different focus from what you are seeing! B&H rep admitted that it was the case when I brought it back, and said that was one of the complains from other users. So, I felt like I was shooting "blindly" - some images did come out very nice, and some not so nice, and I felt like I had no control over it.

    2. Image stabilization. The image looks unstable in both, electronic view and LCD. So, you are seeing the vibrations and slight flickering (like in some very cheap digital point and shoot cameras), which is quite distracting if you are used to a high quality equipment. Again, B&H rep looked at it when I brought it back and said that it is not a particular camera defect, that's just the way it is. I didn't find any use for the optical view, as you can't see the focus at all, and the image border displayed there is inaccurate.

    3. The battery. First, the shortest battery life I've ever seen - it dies after less than 200 shots. I mean, hello. Then, the charger is super bulky and has about a mile long cord attached. I mean, another hello. Why is there a cord in the first place + so long and heavy?
    Then, this may be minor, but nevertheless was a pretty mindless glitch on Fuji part - the camera allows you insert the battery either left or right, so it is very easy to insert incorrectly, and then wonder why the camera doesn't turn on. Also, you can only see the battery power level in the picture play mode, but not when you are shooting or using other menus.

    4. Last but not least. Fuji needs to do a better job writing its manuals. Some important things (how to check the current firmwear on a camera, or how to upgrade to the latest firm wear, for example) are not mentioned at all.

    Comments about Fujifilm X-Pro1 Digital Camera (Body Only):

    I waited about two years before buying the Fuji X Pro-1.When the original Fuji X100 was announced, I knew that I'd be buying it someday. I researched and learned for about a year and bought the X100 shortly before the X100s came out. I saved a couple of hundred bucks and knew that I'd love the original version (because of the many fimware updates).Ditto for the X Pro-1. I waited and saved a few hundred bucks (the X-Pro 2 is soon to come out). I knew what I was getting into (high image quality yet quirky Fuji interface in an awesome little package). I love them both!The X Pro 1 has the 35mm 1.4 mounted full time as this is my favorite focal length. The same as a nifty fifty on full frame. For my pro work, I use a 50mm on my Nikon D700 for approx. 65%-70% of the time. I realize that most photogs don't shoot this way but it just happens to be my style. The 35mm and the 85mm round out my Nikon lenses (yes, I've used and owned many other lenses including the pro zooms).Perhaps one day, I'll be shooting with only a couple of Fuji X cameras. For now, most of my personal work (street photography mainly) is being handled by the X100 (same as a 35mm) and the X Pro-1 w/35mm (same as a 50mm approx). The Fuji cameras will probably be getting some of my pro work in the near future.Fuji X is simply awesome!

    Comments about Fujifilm X-Pro1 Digital Camera (Body Only):

    I got this camera with the 18-55 lens a week before leaving for a 3 week trip to Asia. Having used SLRs for 44 years and digital since 2000 this was a learning experience. My goals in getting this camera were to have something that was lighter than a DSLR, easy to use and more hands on like the 'good old days'. Those goals were met. I also wanted to replace the micro four thirds, fixed lens camera I'd been using as a 'walk-around'.I eventually developed a routine to use it as it is quite different from using an SLR. First let me say that I like this camera and plan to get more lens in the future. Having said that let me get into the 'cons'. The biggest problem is that there are many little buttons that are quickly 'found' when not needed while trying to get a photo. Especially the "Q" button. (However, when you really do need the 'Q' it's very easy to use. Same goes for the drive button.) The viewfinder and LCD often go to a display you weren't expecting and it can take some experimenting to figure out how to get it back to what you had been using. (Carry the instruction manual for the first few weeks.) The focus mode on the front of the camera where it's out of the way but handy is great.Shutter lag is a drag. Someone told me using the optical viewfinder helps. The 'Hybrid' viewfinder had been a selling point for me but as the optical viewfinder shows only a rectangle that gets smaller as I 'zoom' in I soon used the EVF exclusivly, anyway. Mind you I only had the 18-55 to judge by. I don't know what a prime lens would do and I wonder what would the optical look like with a 14mm attached. Note: the EVF goes black if you are wearing polorized sunglasses.If you are shooting for a full day you will need to carry an extra battery as it goes through them really fast. And while I'm on the subject, the battery is shaped so that it can be very easily be inserted incorrectly, even upside down. So watch what your're doing.The camera was a bit larger than I expected but I got over it. An APC sized sensor is nice to have. I missed not having a built-in flash for 'fill' but got amazing results by just upping the ISO in dark places, which is easy and quick to do. Also it is very easy to use hand held with slow shutter speeds due to light weight and image stabilization.Having just returned I have not even downloaded the images so I can't speak to image quality or sharpness but they looked good on the LCD. I did look at a quick video I took before I left and it looked really good on my 27" iMac monitor.There are alot of features like 'film simulation' and contrast control I have not tried yet.So I like this camera and expect to get alot of use out of it.Would I reccomend it to a friend? If they were experienced. This is not a camera for beginners. If my friend was considering buying one I would advise at least comparing it to the Fuji' EX-2 with built-in flash and EVF.

      Comments about Fujifilm X-Pro1 Digital Camera (Body Only):

      I have used Canon gear for a long time until I got the Fuji X100. After that I carry that camera with me all the time. It just delivers great image quality and functionality in a small package with a fixed 35mm equiv. lens. After a while I thought that it would be great if I could have a similar setup as I did with the Canon with the portability I got with the x100.

      I started looking for other cameras in Fuji´s lineup. I thought about three cameras at first: X-Pro1, XE-2, or the X-T1, which had just been announced, but, really, after checking some comparisons between the sensors and also because of the hybrid viewfinder (which I think is one of the most amazing things this camera has to offer, just don´t forget to enable the Corrected AF option) I decided to go with the X-Pro1.

      It is a little bit bigger than the X100, but it feels great when you hold it, really solid. With the latest firmware the camera and lenses perform really well. I was surprised to have read many reviews saying it is a quirky little camera, slow AF etc etc but when I got it it took me a few minutes to get the hang of it. Even the EVF performed better than what I expected. I honestly think that anyone that takes photography seriously will enjoy this camera. If I could say there is something I wish it was better is that focus by wire, but it has never been a serious issue for me.

      For those who just want to have something to take pictures randomly and really want the camera to do all the work, there are other options available that might suit you better. If you want a camera for video, I would also say that there are other options out there. For those who are looking for a sports camera, I think you can get the results that you want if you prepare and plan the shoot, but honestly you would be better served with another camera, such as the X-T1 (which I honestly never used but taking for granted that if you are reading this you are interested in a Fuji, the X-T1 would be the best option in the lineup). This one is a photographer´s camera in the sense that you really have to understand it, but when you do, it is very rewarding.

      To sum it up, if you are into photography and need a camera that is relatively compact, delivers an amazing IQ (the OOC JPEGs, the RAW files and the lenses are truly awesome) and that you can actually carry around without feeling like you are climbing Mt. Everest, this is it.

        Comments about Fujifilm X-Pro1 Digital Camera (Body Only):

        The X-PRO1 IMO is one of the most underrated cameras in the last few years. It's really unfortunate the X-PRO1 had a few nagging issues when first released due to the lack of support in Lightroom and Camera Raw. And the autofocus lagged a bit, and some of that might have been the fault of lenses that prevented faster autofocus.

        After a bunch of firmware updates, the X-PRO1 is now a better camera than when it was first released. Autofocus has improved and Fuji even gave it focus peaking!!!

        The X-PRO1 has great image quality and great high ISO performance. The hybrid viewfinder is excellent. Sometimes you'll be using your camera in bright conditions and the EVF will be hard to see. That's one of the reasons you'd want an optical viewfinder.

        Another great thing about the optical viewfinder is that you can get an idea of what's about to come into the frame before it arrives so you can anticipate your shots easier.

        For street photography, the OVF is great because on a busy street with people in front of you, in back, and on each side, you might only have a second or two to react and the lag you get in all EVF's can raise your blood pressure while looking through the viewfinder and moving your camera around fast. You don't have that issue using the OVF.

        For street photography I used an manual focus 24mm lens and I used it in manual mode, and zone focussed. When you zone focus, the X-PRO1 turns into a fast point and shoot camera with a lot of depth of field. And because there's no time wasted trying to autofocus, you can use the camera quickly.

        Do yourself a favor and get the great X-PRo1 for the low prices it sells for now. Image quality is practically the same as the X-T1 even though the X-T1 has an updated image processor and X-Trans sensor. Nobody you display your images to will be able to tell the difference. Unless you need all the new "bells and whistles" of the X-T1, the X-PRO1 is IMO an under-appreciated camera capable of the same spectacular image quality of the more expensive X-T1.

          In my limited experience with this camera the image quality is superb. It excels in sharpness, freedom from fringe artifacts, noise, real-world dynamic range, and color rendition. I've only used sRGB with in-camera JPG conversion. The low noise (high ISO) opens up possibilities.

          The user interface is better than I expected from having studied the manual. The "Quick" menu button works well. The available parameters are displayed in an easy to navigate matrix and the highlighted parameter persists across sessions. As with any small digital camera, there are too many, too soft buttons to press by accident -- I'll get used to it. The electronic viewfinder is very usable and already allowed me to bag a wildlife shot I likely would have missed otherwise.

          My only real gripe is that the depth-of-field readout (DOF) is next to useless, when it could be great. The DOF is based on a circle of confusion (COC) of ~1 pixel (4.8 um), which is far too small. Fuji, if you're listening, please make COC an adjustable parameter, or at least set it to a reasonable value. (While you're at it, give us a hyperfocal mode where focus is automatically set to hyperfocal for the current aperture.)

          The battery door opens too easily, it should slide and lock as Canon.

          Overall, I'm very pleased.

          Comments about Fujifilm X-Pro1 Digital Camera (Body Only):

          I'm a pro Photographer for 30 years and have had every piece of equipment known to man. This X-Pro1 has become my go to street package. It is quiet, unassuming, fast and of course all with great results. The ability to shoot with different fujifilm film characteristics is a awesome feature by itself, when packaged with the other quick changing features makes it a winner for me.

          Comments about Fujifilm X-Pro1 Digital Camera (Body Only):

          I previously purchased the XE-1 and a couple of prime lenses to give the Fuji X System a whirl. I liked it very much especially after updating the firmware. After about a month I decided to get the X Pro 1 as well. I enjoy the extra features, plus the larger body fits my hands better. So, now I wear them both around my neck when I am out shooting, and they seem much lighter and handier than the old days when I packed a Nikon F series with a zoom lens. At last I have been dragged kicking and screaming into the 21st century.

            Great for those photographers who always want a quality camera with them (not your Smartphone). Amazing image quality in a small lightweight package. Bought the Fuji XF 35mm f/1.4 -- and amazing combination - great for street photography, and the ~50mm equivalent focal length great and versatile for anything you might come across.

                I mainly use the unit for portrait and landscape using fuji 14mm and 35mm lens. The balance and rendition of images in jpg mode is just beautiful even in low light. But most of all, since I am new to photography it teaches me in real time about ISO, Aperture, and Shutter speed. It helps my eyes and brain to sync in a way. If you are the type of person who loves to tweak your camera and push your image to its full potential, then this will work for you.

                Comments about Fujifilm X-Pro1 Digital Camera (Body Only):

                I've never felt motivated to write a review for B&H before, but the X-Pro1 has been a revelation for me. It is a perfect fit for the way I work.

                I spent my formative years with Leicas. I'm the present keeper of a IIIc and a IIIg, which, along with a collection of sixty year old lenses, are simply a joy to use and make beautiful images. I also spent many years with an M3 and several of its associated lenses.

                The IIIg and M3 are the early exemplars of the optical viewfinder combined with a projected bright frame changing size for different lenses and incorporating parallax compensation. There's no substitute for being able to see the frame "in context" - to see what lies just outside the lens's field of view.

                I made the mistake of forgetting this at first, when a desire to use my screw mount Leica lenses in the digital realm led to search for a suitable host. That resulted in the purchase of a Fujifilm X-E1, based upon the merits of the X-Trans sensor and the ready availability of lens mount adapters. I bought it with the 18-55 zoom, and later added the 55-200, which I still own and use (and which is very, very good).

                I didn't give much thought to the Electronic Viewfinder (EVF) - it worked, but left no visceral impression on me. Then, the X-E2 was announced, providing me the opportunity to go into a grand dither over whether to upgrade or not. At the end of it, I realized it wasn't the upgrade to the X-E2 I needed to embrace, but rather, I needed to start over, with the X-Pro1 and Fujinon XF 35mm prime.

                It all turned out to be about the hybrid viewfinder. What I went in hoping for, and what I discovered, was that the X-Pro1's hybrid viewfinder is as much the "beating heart" of the system as its amazing X-Trans sensor.

                The hybrid viewfinder provides immediate benefits for anyone used to an optical finder with projected bright frame, plus it adds the projected system elements, EV compensation, histograms, sight level, etc, all projected onto the optical view.

                My biggest concern going in was whether the X-Pro1 hybrid viewfinder's electronic viewing mode would have sufficient resolution to work well with the Leica primes and the longer Fujinon zoom. (It's a fact often cited the X-E1 and X-E2 electronic viewfinder has higher resolution than the X-Pro1's.)

                This turned out, however, to be entirely a non-issue in real-world use. The X-Pro1's electronic viewfinder mode has proven to be entirely and perfectly suitable for manual focus and framing.

                It all boils down to real-world use. I haven't mentioned the control scheme and ergonomics. In concert with the wonderful hybrid viewfinder, the X-Pro1's physical controls simply fall-to-hand perfectly. Anyone who's ever loved working with an M-series Leica will immediately be comfortable with the X-Pro1. Over and over I find myself thinking, "The folks who designed and built this just 'get it'." It's very evident in real-world use that the design team knew exactly what they were trying to accomplish.

                To sum up, and with apologies for waxing so lengthy: I feel the X-Pro1, and its accompanying system, is an astonishingly powerful achievement for Fujifilm. It's perhaps not a camera for those near the middle of today's photographic demographic bell curve. Some might be happier with the X-E2 or X-M1, or a standard DSLR, or even simply their smartphone. But for me, the X-Pro1 is a perfect fit.

                Thanks for reading, and best wishes!

                I use the X-Pro1 with the 35mm f/1.4 lens to click pictures of my kids.

                There are lots of nice things about this camera but In my opinion still needs some improvements/refinements.

                My recommendation is to wait for X-Pro2. I am sure Fuji will address a lot of issues and will put out a fantastic product. Just look at what they have done with x100s and XE2.

                  At my age I can't afford to carry an heavy camera with lot of accessories with me. I trade all my Nikon stuffs with this little tiny camera the X-Pro1 Digital Camera by Fujifilm. Now I have 3 Fujinon lenses with me. The 35mm 1:1.4, the 60mm 1:2.4 and the wide angle 18mm 1:2. It is almost 4 months and from almost 50 years of photography never been so happy... Of course I can see the comments all around but for me this camera is the one I'm waiting for. I hope I can have my gallery somewhere and show to people why I love it so much! Vietnam 2013. My Facebook is almost full of picts I took from this camera. Bryan Thai.

                  Comments about Fujifilm X-Pro1 Digital Camera (Body Only):

                  Absolutely fell in love with this camera. I bought it a year after it came out and I actually didn't know much about this camera until I stumbled upon a few images produced by the Fuji on Flickr. When I found out this camera can recreate the old film look, I was instantly hooked. The B&W tones this camera produces reminds me alot of the old Mamiya Medium Format cameras I used to use.

                  The image quality is superb and I even sold my Canon 5d Mark III to invest the money into this camera! I couldn't be happier with my decision.

                  The only thing I wished is that they made a battery grip for this camera. The battery can run me around 300-400 shots. HOWEVER, the batteries are incredibly affordable so I recommend buying 2-3 extra batteries to take with you.

                    Comments about Fujifilm X-Pro1 Digital Camera (Body Only):

                    I so much wanted to love this camera. Was looking for something lighter to replace my Canon 5D mark 1 with, which I've used since it came out. I was disappointed, as there are many things to like about Fuji X-Pro1, including sleek design, the image quality (really great, especially with the prime lens), but the whole shooting and maintenance experience turned out not so exciting. It has a great potential, for sure, but not there yet. I'd wait till the next model. So, here are the things that influenced my decision to return it:

                    1. Focus. The autofocus speed is as slow as the turtle crossing the desert. Really frustrating. The manual focus got me wondering: you see the manually focused image in the electronic viewfinder, and it looks one way. But once you press the shutter button, the image comes out with a different focus from what you are seeing! B&H rep admitted that it was the case when I brought it back, and said that was one of the complains from other users. So, I felt like I was shooting "blindly" - some images did come out very nice, and some not so nice, and I felt like I had no control over it.

                    2. Image stabilization. The image looks unstable in both, electronic view and LCD. So, you are seeing the vibrations and slight flickering (like in some very cheap digital point and shoot cameras), which is quite distracting if you are used to a high quality equipment. Again, B&H rep looked at it when I brought it back and said that it is not a particular camera defect, that's just the way it is. I didn't find any use for the optical view, as you can't see the focus at all, and the image border displayed there is inaccurate.

                    3. The battery. First, the shortest battery life I've ever seen - it dies after less than 200 shots. I mean, hello. Then, the charger is super bulky and has about a mile long cord attached. I mean, another hello. Why is there a cord in the first place + so long and heavy?
                    Then, this may be minor, but nevertheless was a pretty mindless glitch on Fuji part - the camera allows you insert the battery either left or right, so it is very easy to insert incorrectly, and then wonder why the camera doesn't turn on. Also, you can only see the battery power level in the picture play mode, but not when you are shooting or using other menus.

                    4. Last but not least. Fuji needs to do a better job writing its manuals. Some important things (how to check the current firmwear on a camera, or how to upgrade to the latest firm wear, for example) are not mentioned at all.

                    This camera with the f/1.4 35mm lens is a nice combo. It is a pleasure to use, and much more enjoyable to walk around with compared to my old dslr.

                      The Fuji X-Pro1 is an amazing kind of camera.
                      It is smaller and lighter than any DSLR.
                      The X-Pro 1 is lighter and quieter than my LEICA M6, it is is lighter and quieter than my LEICA M6.
                      It is discrete and attracts less attention tha my Nikon D800.
                      The through-the-lens viewing and dual-mode electronic and optical finder on this camera has not been duplicated by any other mufacturer.
                      Fujifilms optics are amazing.
                      Novel colour filter array to suppress colour moiré, no optical low-pass filter, this enhansens sharpness.
                      Analogue dials for shutter speed and exposure compensation on top of camera.

                        A life-long Leica user, I needed a spare camera to carry daily. This rangefinder-like interchangeable lens DX format camera exceeded my expectation. The body is well finished, the controls intuitive, the viewing system of optical/digital is outstanding and the sensor truly excellent. The draw backs are few: it is easy to press a button on the back or twirl a dial and change setting without meaning to. This is a camera for knowledgeable photographers who want to go beyond point-and-shoot for a take along camera.

                        For starters this isn't a beginners camera, and it's by no means perfect. But it's tremendous step in the direction of high image quality, durable, carry-with-me-everywhere-I-go cameras. You can read the reviews and see what the camera is all about. I'm only going to mention the few extra things which made a serious difference to me. Adapters: Every old SLR/Rangefinder/Thrift Store lens I've ever owned can be adapted to this camera. For that alone, the options, I love it. I actually have not purchased any XF lenses yet. And for the contortions a camera of this size has to put itself through to make an adapted lens work, Fuji has done an excellent job. It's not simple, but one you've figured it out it can be fast. If you're unsure of buying it I'd recommend renting it for a weekend and seeing for yourself. That's what I did from Borrow Lenses. Well worth the extra $ to know what I was getting into. The image quality is outstanding. It's easy to carry around. And it's a looker - people will ask you about it. The only serious gripe I have -- whoever was the design team for the battery should be put in detention. I can't tell if the flaws were haphazard or just LAZY. Here we go: - The battery can slip into the camera in either direction. You have to memorize which way it goes. - Pulling the SD card out is a nightmare for anyone with thick fingers. With the handgrip on there is zero access to the battery (the hand grip must be removed once the battery needs to be replaced). - The battery life is atrocious. Only 300-400 shots before it's done for. - And finally the charger from 1999. Bulky (2.5x the size of the battery itself). The green light on means IT'S CHARGING! When the light is OFF, that is, where there is no light at all, it means the battery has finished charging. Not to mention the three foot power cable it comes with. To carry the charger with me, it takes half the space of the camera body itself in my bag.However, there is nothing else like the x-pro 1 out there on the market. If you're like me, and have waited over a decade for a camera like this which doesn't cost the down payment on an apartment, then go for it. You'll be pleased.
