Pros: Very substantial body, fine lenses- I have the 35mm F1.4, and 18-55mm; you do need to read the manual thoroughly for best results.
Cons: There is a need to have every firmware upgrade; Fuji must be congratulated on providing the means to keep at the forefront of progress;
I do think that using a tripod suits the camera format for best results.
Opinion: I traded my M6 for the X Pro-1, and I have not regretted it at all; I sold images made with the camera within several hours of acquiring it- surely
proof of the pudding ! I found that due to having very large hands, it was necessary to get the grip, which transformed the camera for me, and i also got
the thumbs up to fit in the flash bracket; again, a superb piece of kit. Overall, I am pleased with the camera- I will eventually get the 14mm lens, and then I think that wiill be my walkaround outfit !
The following opinions have been automatically translated with Google Translate.
Opinion:I had the X-Pro1 a few years ago. I bought it used, but practically new, in February 2014. It took me 27 f/2.8. eeehhh... It's Bella taking her breath away. Its shape, materials, texture, handling... Maybe it's the camera, among those I owned (after the Leica M6 ttl) that I liked the most aesthetically. And he defended himself quite well even in terms of photographic rendering. I resold it because its af, absolutely unliably, made me too nervous. Sooner or later I'm going to buy it back. Maybe I'il use it little, but it's nice to have it.
Pros:Crosshairs, superlative JPEG, vintage, top aesthetics and much more.
Cons:slowness in saving the shots, a little great.
Opinion:What about I've had it for 8 months and I was in love with this vintage style camera. It was supposed to be my second that flanked the XE2 but lately I can't help it especially with vintage optics. Perfect even with the 23mm. RAW files are great, superlative JPEG so much that I use it when I want to shoot in BW without banging in raw room. I am one of those who is convinced that it is not necessary to invest in the machine body unless you use it in the sports field or on a professional level, but that in case you have to invest in optics even if I personally prefer vintage optics for their yield that comes very close to my way of "presenting" photography. As a negative point but you already knew is its slowness in saving photos, so forget a flurry of modern machines. I would avoid using it in night time because of the af that is certainly not at the forefront, but if it is not too dark you can take the shot home without any problems.
Pros:Vintage aesthetics, dials like analog machines, great battery, film simulation
Cons:Aged badly, lag in liveview menus, slow shooting rescue, dynamic range not excellent
Opinion:Bought in mid-2020 to return to an analog-like feel (according to many fuji owners) I took it used by a forum member. I make this comparison on the assumption that I use 5dii, but at the time of the release of this room (2012) I had already used rooms such as a7, nx300 and the like. Speaking of concrete things, the camera gave me yes that vintage look, analog, the film simulation is very comfortable, allows you to have ready-made files. E.g. I went out for motorcycle or mountain rides, I would go home, take the card and upload photos directly to IG, without the need to develop raw. The customization of these films is quite extensive, you can change contrast, sharpness, sat. and tint x every simulation, thus going to "work" already in the room to develop a look that we like without shooting raw. Personally I really appreciate the Velvia profile, with excellent contrasts and saturated colors, if we can have opposite colors in the photo. ERGONOMIA side coming from a 5d you feel quite the lightness of the room, it is still heavy compared to modern mirrorless, but in the end it is only half a kg, even for walks or trekking does not feel too much on the neck. The GHIERE are great, you can use everything in full car or changing the values of the dial of the times (the overexposure I find quite useless in this case, more comfortable when using everything in full car, to compensate for the choices of the room). The BATTERY using the room for a couple of orettes a day and then putting it back in my backpack has lasted a week (head in summer, I imagine that in winter the battery suffers a little definitely). For those who want to do VIDEO the room works completely automatically, but offers a recording up to half an hour, available we only histogram and peaking, excellent but excellent the blurring that we get on this room, with a 50 1.4 you get beautiful results. FINAL CONCLUSIONS: Overall it is a machine to try if you want to go back to shooting in analog and you have the opportunity to buy a good fuji lens, I used it by adapting some m42 optics (using the k&f adapter) and I still felt good. The hybrid system of the crosshairs in truth I did not use it often because under the direct sun it becomes very difficult to see inside the viewfinder, ergo I immediately switched to the electronic one. In xpro3 it's a show, but in this first model you can see that this kind of technology was still in its infancy. To buy if you can find it on the 350/400 including optics, otherwise at 300/250 and we adapt some vintage lens.
Cons:It is not considered "avant-garde" and where, avant-garde, it is the true paradigm of our existence.
Opinion:I personally consider it a current machine. And where - the current one - stands for what you intend to use it for. Of course it is not a machine created for "the pursuit of bodies" but it is especially in the context of reflected images, where it can take a few minutes to take a shot. On the other hand, the ease offered, like mobile phones, to take pictures on image concluding that the best will still be chosen, does not offer the certainty of having "got it right" anyway the right one. The photo, in my humble opinion, is first and foremost a mental composition.
