  • You picked out the by far worst sample picture there is :) That image is unbelievably bad, I remember it being the 35mm at f1.4 and I really hope they missed focus about some mm for that pic.

    But yeah, they have been talking large about resolution so expectations are high. I'm more interested in the dynamic range boost, waiting for some examples.

  • For sure dynamic range and picture quality will be top notch!! Look at the picture quality of the X100, it's just great!

  • Does it have a built-in set of discrete ND filters?

  • Oh yes.. let's judge a camera's still capabilities on a macro image with unbelievably short DOF. :)

  • Not being able to see a 100% crop doesn't say much about native resolving power. The grain looks ok, better than my 7D, about like some shots with my 6Mp Nikon D50.

    Here's a 100% crop from my D50 shot at 800 ISO to highlight the grain. image

  • I hate to be a downer here but usually after seeing a dozen photos online I can tell if the camera is going to produce really sharp pictures. Another piece of info is the sample images on the company website--one has to assume that is the best they can do. And in this case, the colors look very good, but the image looks a bit soft. I'm hoping this cam will surprise me, but I'm not optimistic. Hey, maybe all it needs is a nice sharp m4/3 prime :)

  • I like... X-Pro1's hood.

  • Could be a great low light cam. Still waiting for real samples.....the annoying thing is that by now someone should have popped an SDHC card in this thing and hit the video button (or button "combo"). Lurkers, where are you?

  • Remember to check info and photos at CES 2012 topic.

  • I am in two minds as to whether the built in anti-moire capabilities of the X-Trans sensor will make any difference to video. Surely moire is product of poor downscaling not the sensor?

  • I lost most of my apetite for this camera when I learned that the Fuji lenses are focus-on-wire and aperture-on-wire. I hate it. Can you adopt MFT lenses on this camera?

  • Anyone know what the video bitrate is on this?

  • Bolting on other lenses--which is the m4/3 strength--is always touchy on larger sensors because of the angle of the light. Remains to be seen. And it is a chunky little number.

  • Re. recording bitrate.... although Fujifilm does not publish this, I was told "unofficially" by a Fujifilm USA chap that all of their cameras X10, X100, X-S1, and I assume X-Pro1 aswell record at 17Mb/sec, and not at 24Mbit. Dang.

    So, what we would really need is a boost in the bitrate and also make it inraframe somehow. Plueeese!!! I am desperate in getting a pair of X-S1s.

  • Oh yeah, AFAIK the only recent Finepix camera that has a 3.5mm microphone input jack is the $799 X-S1 with the 24-624 Fujinon lens. So, if you wan to feed superior audio into the camera via a shotgun or wireless or XLR adapter or portable recorder, X-S1 is the way to go.

  • Does the X Pro 1 have uncompressed HDMI output ?

  • Some features of upcoming firmware (X-Pro1 and X-E1):

    1. Improved AF speed on most existing XF lenses.
      Thanks to an updated algorithm, faster AF speed is achieved with the following XF lenses:
      XF14mmF2.8 R
      XF18mmF2 R
      XF35mmF1.4 R
      XF60mmF2.4 R Macro
      XF18-55mmF2.8–4 R LM OIS

    2. Addition of a “Focus Peak Highlight” function for manual focusing. A “Focus Peak Highlight” function, as featured on the FUJIFILM X100S and X20 cameras, has been added to the X-Pro1 and X-E1 via this firmware update. It assists accurate and sensitive manual focusing by enhancing the outline of your subject in high contrast.

    3. Improvement of the method to change magnification during manual focus. Just press the dial to activate image magnification during manual focus and then rotate the dial right or left and the camera will alternate between 3x and 10x, whichever direction you turn.

    4. Improvement of focus precision in various scenes The focus detection algorithm has been improved to provide more accurate focus precision for low contrast subjects and scenes containing horizontal stripes.

    5. XF18-55mmF2.8-4 R LM OIS lens: Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS) is improved when recording videos. The OIS has been improved to reduce image blurring when walking and recording video footage


  • The firmware update Ver.3.70 from Ver.3.61 incorporates the following issues:

    1. Specification when the CORRECTED AF FRAME is ON in the Shooting Menu has been changed. The CORRECTED AF FRAME in the OVF is fixed on the recommended value described in the Owner's manual. If the minimum focus range of the attached lens is greater than the recommended value, the frame is displayed on the position of the minimum focus range.
