A Review of the FujiFilm X-Pro1 with Doug Kaye

Doug Kaye and Frederick Van Johnson sit down in a Google+ Hangout to discuss the brand new Fuji X-Pro1 – a new camera system, from the minds at Fujifilm. The new system comes complete with a brand new mount as well as new glass.

At a cost of $1,700, this camera is clearly targeted at a high-end audience. Fujifilm has promised two more lenses later in 2012.

Some important features of this camera are:

  • EXR Processor Pro image processor
  • Dual-magnification hybrid optical / electronic viewfinder
  • Analogue dials for shutter speed and exposure compensation on top of camera
  • All-new, fully electronic X lens mount; 17.7mm flange-to-sensor distance
  • Three ‘XF’ lenses at launch: XF 18mm F2 R, XF 35mm F1.4 R, and XF 60mm F2.4 R Macro
  • Prime lenses have traditional-style aperture rings (1/3 stop increments) and large manual focus rings
  • Revised rear-panel control layout
  • On-screen ‘Q’ control panel and redesigned tabbed menu system
  • Focal-plane shutter, 1/4000 sec max speed
  • 3.0″ RGBW 1.23M dot LCD
