The X-Pro1 is Fujifilm’s response to the unprecedented success of the FinePix X100, which despite its flaws, seemed to strike a chord with serious photographers around the world. Its juxtaposition of old school dial-based operation and modern sensibilities such as the optical/electronic viewfinder, made it a cult classic among its fans.
The X-Pro1 is the X100 re-imagined, this time, with mirrorless interchangeable lenses.
Its key features are:
- Fujifilm-designed 16MP APS-C X-Trans CMOS sensor
- Novel colour filter array to suppress colour moiré, no optical low-pass filter
- 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
