Fuji X-Pro1 First Impressions

This week I welcomed a new camera into the studio, the Fuji X-Pro1. I’ll write a deeper review once I’ve had the chance to use this camera a little more. For now, I want to offer up a few images and initial impressions.

The 35mm f1.4 lens is sharp. I shot this image while playing with the autofocus and I’ve added an enlargement of the compressed air can, on the right side, so you can see the detail.

This is an image my daughter took (not bad composition for a ten year old), which shows the character of the camera and also the difficultly of shooting wide open with the sometimes jumpy autofocus.

The camera has three internal crop modes, regular 35mm, cinematic 16:9, which is fun to play with and also a 1:1 square crop which I will talk about in more depth in a future post. Here, I was playing with the 16:9 mode.

The camera also has a macro mode, though it seems to me that you have to shoot with the digital viewfinder to make it work. Still, the potential here is really enticing (and I love the background blur).

Congrats on the new toy – should be both a lot of fun and a great camera. Pics certainly show it has a lot of promise.
