Installed Firmware 2.0 today - definitely faster autofocus and the addition of Auto 6400 ISO is great. Worth the few minutes it takes to upgrade!

Also very happy with this upgrade, and even happier to see Zeiss are going to produce lenses for the X Pro 1 too.

For those considering a thumb rest for the XP1 but are put off by the $170 price of the ThumbsUp, go for the one made by LensMate. Mine arrived today. At $65 its not exactly cheap but works great, solidly made, and $100 less than the other one!

Thanks for the link, I have ordered one for my X100. Yes, the XP1 is indeed a beautiful camera, and I am ashamed to admit I almost had an affair with her, but wisdom prevailed. She's expensive, and I am too lazy to change lenses.

Well, if you've ever got the spare $, its worth it - just get the XP1 and the 35mm and it pairs nicely with the X100. I carry those two cameras daily now in far less space than my dslr.

I know and am tempted. I recently flirted with one (+35mm) and was amazed how light it was. And considering what things cost these days it is not that expensive and great value for the money. I do not photograph commercially anymore so for my private work the X100 is perfect. But if I did I would not hesitate to buy two. I like the challenge to see what I can produce with one lens.

Thinking about the XP1, I've recently done a bit of a tour of New Zealand's South Island with the XP1 and am loving it. This trip was the main reason why I bought this camera. I just could not face hauling a DSLR & lenses through forests/up mountains (ok, hills) etc and it must be said it's been utterly brilliant (producing XL images and Vetta quality). I already have some in the queue (including this shot of Mt Cook) and assuming some/most/all are accepted, I'll say leaving the 5D2 at home was a good move.

Shot with a Voigtländer 15mm, a tiny but excellent lens. Sorry about pimping, but seems relevant.

Nice Simon.  I too have stopped using the DSLRs for travel (everything actually).

Cheers Ryerson,. I must say that last week I tramped for an hour and a half up a steep forest track (on a track that occasionally led through tree roots) to a spectacular location called Lake Marian. I had an internal chuckle at the DSLRs I saw being hauled along the way. Last year that would certainly have been me, along with 2 or 3 lenses in a pack. It would've killed me! I won't say I skipped up the track like a billy goat, but it was a heck of a lot easier with the XP1 over my Canon.

I hear ya Simon  We did three weeks in South Africa in February with the Leica, two lenses and all our clothes, all "carry on" luggage!  Before the camera gear would be the carry on alone.

I've got a X-PRO 1 with a 35mm f1.4 lens kit few days ago. The camera shop I freqently use had a fantastic sale for this kit!  I have been uisng Nikon D800/D700 for iStock and shooting with RAW all the time. I am wondering whether I should also shoot with RAW as other cameras or can use Fuji's camera JPEG. I am asking this question because the RAW File Converter_SKYPIX provided by Fuji is a bit cumbersome to use and CS5 does not support X-PRO1 RAW file. I did few test shoots and JPEG files look OK.

Hi David. I've just been shooting RAW (or RAF, as the Fuji files are designated) so I can't really say about the XP1 jpegs, though I've read good things about them. I, however, will continue to shoot RAW. Or RAF. As for the Silkypix converter... personally speaking (and I'm using it right now), I think it's fine. Convert with Silkypix, tinker/tidy up with Elements.


Got this in the queue...

...and it's a system that seems to work. For me, anyway. 


Again apologies for pimping, but again seems relevant.

I've been shooting jpeg almost exclusively with both the X100 and X-Pro 1. The jpegs are so nice right out of the camera, I've seen little reason to shoot RAW.

Hi Simon, thanks for the tip.  I seem to have a little trouble running silkypix with OSX10.7.5. Perhaps I should be looking for the patch. By the way, it is awesome picture!


Thanks blackwaterimages, I am quite relieved to learn that jpegs are fine for the shoot. I will shoot jpegs until I get used to x-pro1

Anyone thinking of getting the X-E1 instead of the X Pro 1?

I used one for a bit and didn't see any particular advantages aside from price. The lack of optical viewfinder would make it a non-option for me though.

One of the first images shot with Fuji X-PRO 1, which got accepted.I did shoot this image in JPEG but it is as good as the one from Nikon D800 in RAW. It would have been nice if X-PRO could produce XXL.

Very nice shot David, though who says you can't get XXL? This is XXXL...


file_thumbview_approve 


... though it is a stitched image. I've been travelling in New Zealand recently (and for a bit of it in this car) and this camera and the images it produces have been nothing but excellent. Uploaded many with very few rejections. I'd rather the XP1 with its XL files than my 5DII with its XXL and a knackered back!
