FUJIFILM X-Pro1 Mirrorless Digital Camera (Body Only)
Key Features
  • 16.3MP APS-C X-Trans CMOS Sensor
  • EXR Image Processor
  • Hybrid Optical and Electronic Viewfinder
  • 3.0" 1.23m-Dot LCD Monitor
Passion for photography and unrelentingly high-standards are what drives the Fujifilm X-Pro1 Mirrorless 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 Fujifilm'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

With the current stock, have all recent updates been done?
Asked by: Stephen K.
The one I bought on May 10th had version 3.40. Upgrading to the latest version at this time (3.60) was easy and took about 10 minutes.

question

I don't understand Fujifilm's command dials. It's too confusing. Why don't they have a traditional dial with modes M, A, P, T, etc...? I like Fujifilm cameras but this feature may be a deal breaker.
Asked by: Anonymous
Fuji dial with shutter speeds, B, T & A is more traditional in terms of old school film SLRs than the newer modes you noted. The Fuji set up appeals to photographers who learned on old manual film cameras. If you set dial to A on the X Pro1 & set the aperature ring to A, the mode is essentially like Auto or Program (P)- the camera sets aperature & speed. If you prefer having mode settings versus manual control, Fuji X Pro is probably not what you are looking for.

question

difference between X-1pro and X-10 models?
Asked by: Anonymous
HI Robert, you can't compare these two cameras, as they are in two different leagues. The X-Pro1 produces superb images and has interchangeable lenses. the X-10 is a fun little camera with a nice zoom range and great for point and shoot. Both cameras are now obsolete, so I would consider the Fuji X-30 for point and shoot, or for about $400 more, get the X-E2 with their excellent 18-55 kit lens for much higher quality. I have both the X-1Pro and the X-E2, which is much lighter and focuses much faster. image quality is about the same, but I prefer using the larger X-Pro 1 because of the optical viewfinder.

question

are the lenses in this kit compatible with the XT-1?
Asked by: Todd P.
I entrusted installation of my 27 mm lens on the XT-1 to Tom Braye, photography professor at Kellogg Community College, this morning. It did fit, but it was a much tighter fit than than I've ever experienced on well over 100 different cameras (35mm, medium and large format film cameras, DSLRs, etc.) I've managed over 13 years as the photo paraprofessional at the college. I would suggest the engineering/manufacturing standards are either not in sync or manufacturing standards are not being accurately implemented. My guess is the lens is the culprit, but that's not a proven theory.

question

Does it work with apple software ( e.g. IPhoto editing tools) and other software that has been loaded on the Apple computer?
Asked by: Richard W.
Hi Richard! The raw it produces has to be converted for any application to recognized, but I have always shoot in JPG format, JPG is recognized by any photo editing software. I mainly use this in wedding and Landscape photography. Hope that help!
