You can move your head around, and the frame will line up differently depending on your exact point of view. And wearing glasses, the frame will seem even smaller than without - because your eye is further away. Cropping is far easier than synthesizing something you thought would end up in frame, but actually didn't. The viewfinder on a rangefinder camera ...

In contrast to the standard 2x2 bayer pattern the X-Pro 1's sensor uses a 6x6 pattern (see this link for images) R,G,R,G,R,G G,B,G,G,R,G G,B,G,B,G,B R,G,R,B,G,B R,G,R,G,R,G G,B,G,G,R,G G,B,G,B,G,B G,R,G,G,B,G R,G,R,G,R,G B,G,B,R,G,R G,B,G,B,G,B G,R,G,G,B,G The new pattern results in every horizontal and vertical ...

It seems you pushed the lever that switches from the OVF to the EVF for more than 2 seconds. Doing so will bring the magnification glass on top of the OVF. Try pushing it again for more than 2 seconds to put it back in the other position. That magnification glass is useful for the other lenses...

I've been using X-Pro 1 for almost a year now. My other camera is a Canon 5D MkII. The sensor and the size of the complete kit were the main reasons to buy for me. But of course after I bought, I realized, how hard it is to focus compared to 5D (it might be a silly comparison but that's what I'm used to). Basically, it's harder to auto focus, and you ...

Needs a firmware update to address; obvious solution is to allow the Fn button to be programmed to act as the AF selector then at least it is easily accessible during shooting. However, this needs people to tell Fujifilm that they would like this. I called the FujiFilm Pro Digital team (1-800-800-3854 Option #1 and then Option #2) and they put me through ...

No, it is not. There is nothing magical about not waiting at the halfway point. What you read is silly, as if waiting would make the focus take longer or something. It does not work that way. You can press all the way as fast as you want and you'll get a shot in focus or not. The longer you wait at the half-press (in AF-S) mode or before fully pressing (in ...

Highlight pictures and press MENU/OK to select or deselect (pictures that in a photobook or print order are shown by S). When the operation is complete, press DISP/BACK to display a confirmation dialog, then highlight OK and press MENU/OK. I suggest to read page 65 of the manual.

No. The Fuji X-Pro1 is not Exposure-Priority, so it does not simulate exposure. This one observation in my review of the X-Pro1, just published a few days ago. Things get worse in Manual mode because the histogram does not change either since it is based on the display. This is really too bad as one of the best things an EVF can do is preview exposure. ...

Whenever you desire the look they offer. Don't look to others as for when they use them. Try them out, see how they work. Use them in unconventional ways. Following a herd is boring.

I like the idea of the Fuji, I shoot with an X100 and am soon to add a XE-1 To my lineup, as there is a 56mm/1.4 on the horizon, which would make great portraits. Its really up to you on what you want to carry, the Fuji is lightweight and portable the full frames and Medium format start to get heavy quickly, I think as mentioned the look of the camera ...

Having dug through a bunch of online reviews and forum comment chains on the X Pro-1 AF (the best of which is X Pro-1 Tips and Tricks), I can only come to the conclusion that since the OVF is not actually showing you exactly what the lens sees as in an SLR-type design, it is impossible to be as entirely accurate as when using the EVF. I can't find any ...

Based on the manual, here is what I understand about the X Pro-1 AF: The AF system is not particularly capable with moving subjects, and is not very capable with fast moving subjects period. This is not surprising, since it is contrast-detection AF See Pg. 44 The AF system does perform AF when the shutter button is half-pressed, locks focus and ...

Sadly, no secrets. Hopefully this will be addressed in a future firmware update.

This isn't the first camera to deviate from the standard RGB bayer layout, there have been cameras released with cyan as a fourth colour (replacing half of the green filters) as well as a fourth clear filter for better luminance resolution and low light ability. Fuji have also experimented with octagonal sensors and split dynamic range sensors so know a ...
