Fujifilm X-Pro 1 Review
The Fujifilm X-Pro 1 is a 16 megapixels digital camera with an X-Trans CMOS which is similar to a full frame sensor. It is made in Japan and is claimed to have been subjected to the strict standards of Fujifilm. It is lightweight and compact; however, it looks and feels heavy duty and something that could stand the test of time. This digital camera has a synthetic leather exterior that looks and feels like a genuine one. The X-Pro 1 produces images that have an admirable bokeh, respectable sharpness and details, and attractive colors that make them very natural-looking. There’s almost no need to edit those images from this camera with the caliber of its JPEG. The pictures are remarkable. With the latest firmware updates, the autofocus speed has improved but still not as fast as the DSLR and it is not completely quiet but definitely not that noisy. There are other limitations also. The X-Pro 1 doesn’t work excellently when shooting fast-moving subjects. The user might find less sharp pictures of kids in action or blurry images of flying birds. It cannot be considered as a sports cam that you can bring during some sports events. There are some complaints about this AF for things that move. Nevertheless, auto focusing works fine for other kinds of photo shooting styles. You can learn a lot of things from this camera, but it isn’t the best cam for somebody who is just beginning to learn. Previewing the exposure for the manual setting of the shutter speed is not available, nonetheless, this shutter sounds softly and quietly. One drawback, though, the shutter speed cannot be set at minimum level. As for the weight of two pounds, it is certainly lighter than the DSLR and quite more portable to carry around. This digital camera is not an all-around cam due to some limitations, but, it can be your walk-around camera due to its weight except that it is not pocketable like the Panasonic GF1. In addition to X-Pro 1’s pros, the controls can be operated easily because they are somewhat big and not too smooth. Start up time takes around three seconds but focusing takes some time when shooting in low-light places. Manual focusing is quick to respond but others consider this MF useless since it requires many turns. The hybrid viewfinder performs well. The battery life is typical but the battery lid looks flimsy and improperly positioned. Sealing is not completely reliable; the electronic view finder collects dust after just a few days. The optical view finder seems more sluggish than the electronic view finder. Zooming is not possible while doing a video and the manual aperture cannot be controlled while recording. Videoing can make 24 frames per second. In conclusion, the Fujifilm X-Pro 1 is not for a beginner since there’s a need to manually turn the dial to control shutter speed, the aperture and other settings. But others find this a plus because you don’t have to go to the menus for these settings. There are many limitations and there are pluses, but definitely you need patience in order to achieve the amazing image quality it can produce.
