The X-Pro1 is the first camera FujiFilm entered into the compact system market. As the name suggests, the X-Pro1 is aimed squarely at professional and enthusiast photographers, with it's classic rangefinder styling and dedicated control dials. The large viewfinder is Fuji's own "Hybrid" viewfinder which allows the photographer to switch between a fully digital display, or an optical rangefinder view with digital information overlaid, bringing a touch of nostalgia with it.

Inside the X-Pro1 we find Fuji's unique 16 Megapixel, APS-C sized "X-Trans CMOS" image sensor which captures sharp detail and produces outstanding colour, including a range of film simulation modes to reproduce the expressive colour quality of Fuji films. The high-resolution, anti-reflective LCD screen means photographers can feel comfortable checking their photos in the field allowing them to shoot with even greater confidence.

X-Trans CMOS
Moiré is tackled at its root cause by the revolutionary X-Trans CMOS sensor's color filter array. By enhancing aperiodicity (randomness) in the array arrangement, the color filter minimizes generation of both moiré and false colors, eliminating the necessity for an optical low-pass filter in the lens and enabling X-Trans CMOS sensor to capture full “unfiltered” lens performance. The EXR Processor Pro is supported by an integrated co-processor for higher speed and higher precision image processing perform

XF Lens
Designed especially for the X-Pro1, the FUJINON XF Lens series promises enhanced resolution and light volume in image edge areas as well as reduced chromatic aberration for exceptional image quality. Featuring an all-glass aspherical lens and other elements, the lens is polished to perfection and treated with Super EBC coating. Holding the high-quality metal barrel and operating the precision-machined 1/3-step aperture ring is a sensation that fires the desire to capture every scene. For photographers who seek the peak of photographic excellence, FUJIFILM raises the curtain on a new era of interchangeable lenses and unveils a premium lineup of 3 single-focal length lenses.

X Mount
Taking full advantage of the mirrorless design, the mount boasts a short 17.7mm flange back distance, a wider opening and deeper mounting of the lens, resulting in reduction of back focus distance to the minimum possible while achieving high resolution extending to the image edge areas. When a FUJINON XF lens is mounted, all lens information is instantly communicated to the body, integrating them into a seamless, responsive instrument.

Hybrid Multi Viewfinder
Featuring the freedom to switch between an optical and electronic viewfinder, the Hybrid Viewfinder has evolved to meet the challenge of interchangeable lenses. When an XF series lens is mounted, lens data are communicated to X-Pro1, and viewfinder magnification (2 types) and frame size (multiple steps) are automatically switched. Peering through the viewfinder with all your attention focused on the subject. This simple style of shooting is the both the first step back to the essential pleasure of photography. Every lens change reveals a new world of beauty to capture.

This camera is really one for enthusiasts. The image quality, especially with the 35mm lens, is absolutely beautiful. The manual controls, shutter, exposure compensation, aperture, give you a feeling of really being in charge of an old fashioned camera of the fifties. The hybrid viewfinder is good for dslr users. The quick access button and the manual focus control are very good. It all adds up to the sort of experience you got back in the days before automatic cameras. The optics are second to none and the LCD and info display are excellent. Highly recommended if you are a photographic enthusiast.

Pros: Compact, Build quality, Screen size

I have to admit, a large part of why I bought this camera was for its aesthetics. I love the classic styling, and the hybrid viewfinder seemed pretty cool. There has also been much hype about its image quality, and having used the camera for over a month now, I have to say this is its biggest strength. It consistently outperforms my Canon 5D mkII in terms of image quality. And in a much smaller and portable body!

Even with the newest firmware, I have to admit it is a big quirky to use, however. The autofocus is quite hit and miss in low light, although it's much better in well lit environments. Manual focus is still a pain, and I really wish focus was mechanical. The slight delay between turning the focus ring and feeling the focus motor work can be a bit annoying, but it's still possible to manually focus reasonably well.

Overall, however, this is a really fun camera to use if you are a reasonably experienced or enthusiastic photographer willing to learn how to use it. It's certainly not very beginner friendly, and figuring out some of the settings and the focusing can be a bit frustrating, but the pure quality of the images, the look and build all make up for that.

This camera has replaced my DSLRs as my walkabout camera of choice. Love it!

Great camera, the focusing is not easiest to use but overall, especially the image quality, is well above all cameras in its price range.
Cannot wait for the superwide 14mm lense to come out.

There has been many X-Pro 1 reviews out there regarding specs, I'm also not a professional reviewer, so I'll just share from my personal experience regarding the Fuji X Pro 1.
All the hype regarding the image quality is justified in all counts, the images coming from the Fuji X Pro 1 are just phenomenal, I will attribute this to the camera’s unique sensor and it’s extremely good lens (I own the 35mm 1.4 at the time of writing this). However some of the issues (or potential) issue the camera has is it’s design, people who have not used this type of camera before may be faced with a steep learning curve may find issues such as parallax a bit daunting. Some may also find the auto focus of the camera is also a bit slow, but if you can live with the 5D Mark III’s auto focus speed then you should be fine. Manual focus is also a bit off a challenge with this camera as the lenses are focus by wire, manual focusing takes a long time and is awkward to use. The lack of focus peaking (found in the Sony NEX models) also makes 3rd party lenses awkward to use with the X Pro 1 (although I wouldn’t use any other lens other than the native Fuji lenses as they are just really fantastic performers).
In closing, the X Pro 1 it can be a challenging camera to use at times but it’s also such a fun camera to use (I own a NEX-7 and a few other cameras but I consider the X Pro 1 as my main camera) you have to adjust your shooting style slightly to use the camera effectively and there’s a certain amount of learning involved if you have not used a camera like this in the past, but for those who are willing to take on these small compromises, the rewards are worth it.

Stunning image quality, excellent useability

Being impressed with the Fuji X10 and after a fair amount of research I purchased the X Pro 1 along with the 35mm lens to use primarily for travel and day trips to save me lugging around my SLR.

What a camera! I am repeatedly amazed at the image quality it produces.

The JPG files are incredible right out of the camera and lend themselves well to further manipulation in light room. The shots have that wonderful "Fuji" look to them. The detail and lack of noise is excellent. The sharpness of the 35mm lens is superior to any other lens I have used including my Leica R series.

I get incredible low noise hand held shots at night using ISO 6400 and f1.4! I can't get these with any other camera I have owned.

The build quality of the camera is very high and it just feels "right" when using it. The controls and interface work very well for me and I can quickly change any setting.

It is a camera that makes you think a little about what you want to achieve while using it, which I like. For example the high ISO is so good that it can make night shots look like they were taken in the day so I have had to learn to compensate for this more than I would for other cameras. This gives me new creative options.

Beware, though, that it doesn't have the plethora of consumer "fun effect" modes you find on many cameras today. I admit I do like to dabble with things like the tilt shift effect on the Sony Nex 5, but I'm quite happy to leave that to the other cameras and enjoy the Fuji for what it is.

I was initially a little disappointed by the noise the lens made while focusing but Fuji quickly came out with a firmware update that has fixed this. Cudos to them for providing this update so quickly.

Overall I couldn't be happier. The camera is a little on the expensive side, but for this image quality I think it is actually a real bargain when combined with the 35mm lens.

Highly recommended!

the image quality is amazing. no need to worry about high iso ,images at 6400 are clean and detailed ,if i have one gripe it would be slow autofocus . i have the 3 lenses ,the 35 stays on the camera it is sharp wide open. once i start shooting with this camera i forget the slow focus (hoping for a firmware update like they did with the x100 c'mon fuji)the images have a special fuji contrast and colour.

Its a great camera matched with a brilliant lens, I've only got the 35mm so far. Razor sharp and with incredible low noise. When you combine this with photoshop CS5 noise reduction (one of the best features of CS5) you can go very low light and get a fantastic image. I had the finepix x100 previously, and it's a big step up, particularly on the menu side, much more straightforward to use. The video is amazing, and actually the sound it quite good on that too. A little slow on the auto focus, but only in very low light, so not holding that against it! This may improve in firmware updates in the future. The camera raw editor isn't yet available in photoshop though.

Value for money wise, I'd say a very good buy indeed!
