Fujifilm X-Pro1 mirrorless camera review


Look past the X-Pro1's flaws, omissions and ransom demands, and you'll be heavily rewarded.

Filter-free sensor produces amazing imagesHybrid viewfinder caters for all situationsGreat manual controls and UICheaper than a Leica

Not everyone digs the bold retro styleOther ILCs have weatherproofing, faster AF, gentler prices

The Fujifilm X-Pro1 is a work of art, and like any masterpiece there'll be some who hate it and others who get into heated bidding wars. If you're sensible and price-conscious, then by rights you should be waiting for the auctioneer to bring out the...

Fujifilm confirms X-Pro1 at CES: 16MP APS-C sensor, interchangeable lenses, price TBA

Fujifilm X-Pro1


The Fujifilm X-Pro1 is a top-notch mirrorless camera that is sure to appeal to optical viewfinder fans that are put off by the high price of Leica rangefinders.

Great high ISO images. X-Trans image sensor. Hybrid optical/electronic viewfinder. Sharp rear display. Excellent control layout. Sturdy build. PC sync flash socket. Continued firmware update support.

A little slow to focus. Lacks built-in flash. Not a good choice for video. No mic input.

The rear LCD is 3-inches in size and packs a 1,230k-dot resolution. That's a lot of pixels; the figure includes a layer of white pixels that enhance visibility on bright days. It's sharper than the 614k-dot OLED display found on the Panasonic Lumix...

Fujifilm X-Pro1


NOTE: On September 18th 2012 Fujifilm released Firmware version 2.0 for the X-Pro1. This improves certain key aspects of operation addressed in this review, most notably both autofocus and manual focus performance. Please bear this in mind when reading...

Excellent image quality at all ISO settings - impressive resolution and low noise ; Wide choice of film simulation modes offer superb out-of-camera colour rendition ; Intuitive and straightforward traditional control layout (aperture ring, shutter...

Slow autofocus compared to its mirrorless peers ; Dysfunctional manual focus ; Overly-conservative DOF scale useless for zone focusing ; Poor auto ISO implementation (uses too-slow shutter speeds) ; Live Histogram doesn't work in manual exposure mode...

The X-Pro1 marks Fujifilm's entry into the high-end mirrorless interchangeable-lens market, and combines excellent image quality with fluid handling. The hybrid optical/electronic viewfinder is excellent, but autofocus is relatively slow and manual...

Fujifilm X-Pro1 review


Fujifilm has a history of making beautiful cameras, particularly in its X series. The X100 and X10 are more than just pretty faces, too — both deliver gorgeous pictures and video. They're designed...

Gorgeous design ; Takes excellent photos and videos ; Efficient control system

Expensive ; Lens ecosystem is new and very small ; Relatively slow autofocus

There's a lot to like, but the price is tough to swallow when the competition's so good

Fujifilm X-Pro1 (Body Only) review


Fujifilm X-Pro1 (Body Only)

Stellar photo quality and a beautiful-looking, mostly streamlined design make the Fujifilm X-Pro1 a really attractive camera for deep-pocketed enthusiasts and curious professionals.

Poor autofocus performance and a bare-bones feature set make the X-Pro1 harder to recommend for a general audience than it should be, and a new sensor means raw processing support will take longer to appear than I'd like.

The Fujifilm X-Pro1 is a nice compromise if you can't afford a Leica but want to approximate the experience and get some stunning photo quality to boot.

Unfortunately, the Fujifilm X-Pro1’s positives as a video camera—strong color rendition and impressive low light performance—are severely outweighed by the camera’s poor controls in video mode. The unreliable autofocus system drove us crazy at times,...

Fujifilm X-Pro1 Review


The Fujifilm X-Pro1 is a new compact system camera featuring a retro design that bears more than a passing resemblance to the Leica M-series. At the heart of the X-Pro1 is the 16.3 megapixel APS-C sized “X-Trans” CMOS sensor, which has a new type of...

The Fujifilm X-Pro1 feels like the natural interchangeable lens evolution of the incredibly popular X-100 camera, offering similarly refined, intuitive handling, fantastic image quality, premium build quality and three high-quality lenses on launch....

Fujifilm X-Pro1 Review


It's not just a retro look that distinguishes the Fujifilm X-Pro1, but its cutting-edge hybrid optical viewfinder and emphasis on quality prime lenses. Excellent image quality with very clean detail is the extra surprise inside.

Quality build; Unique hybrid optical viewfinder; Excellent LCD; Good controls; Excellent image quality

Limited to prime lenses (for now); Loose aperture ring and EV dial; Mediocre autofocus speeds; Slow buffer clearing; Tripod socket too close to battery compartment

Shooting with the Fujifilm X-Pro1 is really a kick. It took me back to the days when all I had were prime lenses, and my senses were tuned to the world around me such that I could anticipate which lens I needed before the action happened, and swiftly...
