Kent Johnson shoots a fashion jewellery campaign for Oumura with the Fujifilm X-Pro1 and the Fujinon XF 35mmF1.4 R Lens.

Another day, another pro photographer that dares to make the move to mirrorless gear. Here, Kent supplies a lot of photographs with his essay, and some X-Pro1 out of camera Jpeg vs Adobe Lightroom vs Silkypix raw files rendering comparisons. Also, kudos for not stripping the EXIFs out the photos.

"For me the decision to use the Fuji X-Pro1 on this shoot was definitely the right call. The Camera and the XF35mmF1.4 R were a perfect combination for the contemporary fashion look and feel we were after from the shoot. The image quality is superb and the cameras ability to focus accurately and quickly (in that order) allowed me to focus more on what was happening in front of the camera; the shots, than worrying if the shots were really in focus or not. And as I wrote in my X-Pro1 review on Street Fashion Sydney; this is a camera that enhances your photography instead of hindering it.  Love it!

Pros & Cons of shooting Fashion with the Fujifim X-Pro1

A very high percentage of Sharp and In-Focus shots = more keepers to choose from.
Exceptional file quality straight from the camera.
Great detailed files from RAW - but see the Con below..
Ability to shoot with any of the three viewfinder options & I used all three on this shoot.
No mirror 'black-out'; you see the shot you are making.
Everyone loves the X-Pro1, and the client probably doesn't own one (yet).

Cons
You need to remove the tripod plate to open the Card/Battery door.
Viewfinder not as large as with a DSLR, I look over the top of the camera if it's a problem.
RAW conversion tends to be time consuming - frustrating - impossible under some circumstances..
Write speeds not as fast as DSLR - can slow down playback viewing.
Minor shutter lag, though not enough to cause me at least to miss any shots."
