Overview

Description by FujiFilm:

APS-C 16mp “X-Trans CMOS”
Developed to take advantage of the exceptional resolution of the XF lens, a revolutionary new sensor inspired by film.

Moiré 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 moiré 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.

FUJINON Interchangeable “XF LENS” and Original “X Mount”
No limits to image quality. 3 excellent single-focal length lenses and Fujifilm original “X Mount” desgined for maximum perfomance of the lens will promise excellent image quality.

Designed especially for the X-Pro1, the FUJINON XF Lens series promises enhanced resolution and light volume in image edge areas as well as reduced chromatic aberration for exceptional image quality. Featuring an all-glass aspherical lens and other elements, the lens is polished to perfection and treated with Super EBC coating. Holding the high-quality metal barrel and operating the precision-machined 1/3-step aperture ring is a sensation that fires the desire to capture every scene. For photographers who seek the peak of photographic excellence, FUJIFILM raises the curtain on a new era of interchangeable lenses and unveils a premium lineup of 3 single-focal length lenses.

Hybrid Multi Viewfinder
Next-generation Hybrid Viewfinder optimizes magnification according to the mounted lens.

Featuring the freedom to switch between an optical and electronic viewfinder, the Hybrid Viewfinder has evolved to meet the challenge of interchangeable lenses. When an XF series lens is mounted, lens data are communicated to X-Pro1, and viewfinder magnification (2 types) and frame size (multiple steps) are automatically switched. Peering through the viewfinder with all your attention focused on the subject. This simple style of shooting is the both the first step back to the essential pleasure of photography. Every lens change reveals a new world of beauty to capture.

 
 

Reviews

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!

"Overall I was not impressed using the X-Pro 1 with firmware 1. In fact if I purchased the system I would return it right away and buy a beer to cry into. The photo quality is great, the color is good but the areas that the Fuji fails in…well it really fails.

Am I happy with the results of the X-Pro 1? Kinda..

The poor operating performance of firmware version 1 really soured my enjoyment of this camera. I did have the opportunity to upgrade the camera and lenses to firmware version 2 which to the credit of Fuji is much faster then

Kevin Mullins is a well estabilished pro photographer that has seriously began working on assignments with the X-pro1 nad his 3 Fujinon lenses, the XF 18mm, 35mm and 60mm macro.

"The camera really has great image rendering and performance in low light and I’m comfortable using it at 6,400 ISO where necessary.  I’m interested to see where the new Fuji X-E1 takes the X range in terms of performance and any improvements (or, as I presume, its effectively an X-Pro1 without and OVF).

In summary, after six months of use, the X-Pro1 remains a primary camera for me for my wedding photography work.  I don’t see this changing, even with the introduction of new Canon DSLR’s.  Quite simply it’s a marvellous camera, rolled into a little portable box.  The optics are wonderful, the weight and portability are excellent.

Battery life and start-up time have been improved with recent firmware updates but could perhaps have a little more legs in them.  I’d like to see a minimum shutter speed added and I’d also like to see an adjustable dioptre.  Perhaps, even in future cameras I’d like to see a built in wi-fi module as this would allow creativity and communications combination whilst out travelling or shooting street photography.

"Fuji is on the right track with the X-Pro series and not with just a me-too offering. But there are enough annoyances with the X-100 and X-Pro 1 that Fuji needs to appreciate the need for sweating the details when it comes to product execution. Their designs are brilliant, build quality is very high, and optical quality second to none.

"The X-Pro1 also takes another departure mostly ignored by the others: its newly-developed colour filter array removes the need for an optical low-pass filter to solve moiré and false colour issues.

In this array, RGB pixels are arranged in 6×6 pixel sets with high randomness, emulating the seeming haphazardness of film grain.

In this extensive two part review, Nick Devlin gives the 'photographer's eye' lowdown about the X-Pro1. There are no Iso trains, technical charts and pixel peeping exercises here, just some grey matter at work and a couple of eyes:

"At the very head of the not-so-great but not-so-terrible category is the X-Pro1's autofocus performance. It's ok. In macro-mode it's really slow.  Do not try an X-Pro1 after handling a Nikon D4.  You won't be happy.

"The X-Pro1 delivers most of the goods in terms of its handling, with a few caveats. The multitude of external controls, optical viewfinder and stunning appearance have been cunningly combined with some truly cutting-edge features, most notably the hybrid viewfinder. As on the X100, the ability to frame your subject in not one, not two, but three different ways, each of which offers

When the verdict in a review at a reputable site incudes the word 'excellent' five six seven times, you know there's something special at hand:

"Focus speed is quickest with the 18mm lens, followed by the 35mm, then the 60mm macro. Focus is generally quite rapid, unless

Kai from Digital Rev takes the Fujifilm X-Pro1 on a street shooting review in the narrow and hectic alleys of Hong Kong. Being Digital Rev this is of couse a video hands-on review, and as always, a bit phlegmatic at places. Judging from this review, it appears the X-Pro1 still suffers-to a lesser degree from some shortcomings inherited by

I don't know if the Cnet crew really appreciates the camera at hand, since they're deducting points for missing dedicated video button and such:

"The X-Pro-1's startup time was clocked at 1.2 seconds, twice as fast as the X100. Shutter lag was less than second and

Stuff-Review has made a nice little chart that pits the newcomer against the almost established crowd. That's all pretty theoretical though, since 3 of the 4 cameras are practically not available in the majority of the western world:

"In many ways, the X-Pro1 is simply an updated X100 with the incredible benefit of an interchangeable lens mount. To the untrained eye, the bodies look nearly identical, with a similar construction and finish, familiar dial location and control layout, and even a hybrid viewfinder and full-size flash mount. Though it has a similar height, the X-Pro1 is noticeably wider
