Fujifilm X-Pro1 – Featured User Review

Camera Reviews Featured Fujifilm Mirrorless User Reviews

Fujifilm X-Pro1 – Featured User ReviewThe Fujifilm X-Pro1 is one of the most exciting cameras of 2012. It’s a high-end, interchangeable lens digital rangefinder with auto focus, a cool hybrid viewfinder and a unique 16-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor. Normally, I spot a useful and well-written review for a popular camera or lens and then highlight it by making it a Featured User Review. But in this case I actually went out and solicited the review below. The author, photographer Chris Gampat, works at B&H Photo and runs the popular and excellent photography Web site, The Phoblographer. I found out he owned a Fujifilm X-Pro1 and has written not only a complete X-Pro1 review but an article comparing the Fujifilm X-Pro1 to the Sony NEX 7 and the Olympus OM-D E-M5 – three of the best and most popular high-end compact system cameras available right now. So I had no choice – I applied pressure and got him to write a user review for us. So check out Chris’s user review below and then visit his site to read his full Fujifilm X-Pro1 review and the X-Pro1 / NEX / OM-D comparison article (see links to both, below). If you’re interested in any of those cameras, it’s a very useful read.

If you’re a Fujifilm X-Pro1 owner, or you own another high-end mirrorless camera like the Olympus OM-D or Sony NEX 7, please take a few minutes to write your own review. It only takes a few minutes and your review could make a real difference for another photographer who’s trying to decide what camera to buy.

The Fujifilm X Pro 1 is a camera begging to be picked up by retrophiles and those wanting full-frame image quality in a compact camera body with an APS-C sized sensor. The ergonomics and styling allude to classic rangefinders like the Contax G2: which was also the first autofocus rangefinder camera out there. But besides the vintage inspired exterior, the Fujifilm X Pro 1 also sports a 16MP sensor featuring a special sensor designed to deliver stunning image quality and some of the lowest high ISO noise I’ve seen. Coupled with three prime lenses right out of the door, the Fujifilm X Pro series already has a little bit of a presence developed. This is more developed and targeted towards the pro and high end enthusiast shooters than its main competitors were right out of the box… (read more)
