    Lovely shots. Are folk using the OVF or EVF most of the time and if OVF how accurate do you feel the frame lines are?

    Lee,

    thanks.

    Frame lines are very accurate with the EVF and the LCD screen.

    OVF is very good indeed but I'd not use it for this kind of pictures.

    Even if frame lines are not that accurate, it's fun to use the X1 Pro as a Leica.

    I have found very useful the tips and tricks I have found in this blog:

    Come to think of it...: X-Pro 1 Tips and Tricks: The Basics

    I agree with almost everything in his analysis.

    Ciao, have a good light !

    Orion and the M42 - Fuji X1 Pro and a 35/1.4

    A crop, unfortunately my tripod had a problem. The head was not really fixed, so there is a little movement in the pic caused not by the long exposure but by the head of the tripod.

    Unfortunately I cannot publish the pictures of my friends for privacy reasons but I can tell you that I am really impressed by what the 35/1.4 can do with portraits and the Pro negative setting activated.


    I love the natural - neutral tones that the X1 Pro can give, maybe cause I see too many punchy colors around or maybe cause I don't live in the Miami of police TV serie CSI .

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    Hey Jolly lots of great stuff. Was especially looking at that shadows and highlights which are looking good. Looking forward to mine arriving in a few weeks. It is in transit from the dealer.

    One question....ok two

    1)what is the Pro negative setting?
    2)I went to the link you provided with the basic setup. On the X10 I don't use the Auto Dynamic Range. Do you know if that boosts ISO on the x-pro1

    thanks.

    Thanks Terry,

    the Pro neg. std is one of the Film simulation I am using the camera at the moment.

    I am waiting for the raw converter in lightroom so I am trying the different settings in the camera.

    I have still really to understand the impact of Auto 100 200 400 % in the dynamic range.

    I just checked and it seems that the auto dynamic range boosts the Iso. I didn't know it ... I think i will put it in the 100% position.

    I will do some tests in the next days.

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    Thanks. I figured you were talking about the provia setting.

    Yes, to get DR 200 Fuji bumps ISO up a stop and then to get 400% you need to bump ISO again.

    On the X10 to get the most neutral files we made some adjustments to highlights and shadows but I haven't gone through the manual yet to see if the same adjustments are on this camera plus with a much bigger sensor those adjustments may not be needed.

    Yes, I would really like RAW support as well but it seems that it may take a bit as the processing is completely different than other cameras.

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    DR settings 200% and 400% boost the ISO to 400 and 800 - if you have it on auto DR then it will do this as it decides it needs to to preserve highlights. The RAWs will look underexposed in 3rd party apps such as LR (once they support it). The camera then applies some magic tone curve adjustments to the in-camera JPGs to make the final result look great. I used to only shoot RAW but am happy with the JPGs from the X100 and X-Pro 1.

    I will revisit RAW though (and DR 100%) when LR supports it - just to see.

    I bought the 18/2.0

    VERY sharp in the center from 2.8 - quite soft in the corner ... the curve of this lens from center to the corner should look a missile ...





    btw ... impressing ISO 640 ...









    hope to take some decent pictures soon, bored to take pictures at home

    Fantastic shots everyone - Jolly, all good, Penson, so sharp! Back from the Orient, Jono? You will succumb to the X1-Pro (if you didn't already)...

    HI Lee
    Yes - back here again.
    The X1-pro is not for me though - if I want nice lenses and MF then I have my M9 - if I wan't AF, then I don't think the Fuji is it. Each to his own though. The IQ is obviously excellent.

    all the best

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    I wasn't seriously thinking of this camera but looking at the IQ I am somewhat blown away.

    DPreview have just released some sample shots and for the first in a long time the shots actually sell the IQ of the camera.

    Issue is that if you want a modern RF with AF and useable high ISO then simply FORGET the M9.

    I wonder if Leica is waking up at least now (for the future M10) and implementing some of the great things which Fuji has shown meanwhile in the X100 and now in the X Pro 1. Sure both are not perfect cameras, but neither is a Leica M9. And comparing the price the answer is getting pretty clear which one is the winner IMHO.

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    The X Pro 1 is a really great camera as I can judge from all the reviews and posts. There are two annoying issues though:

    1) the camera and lenses are still NOT available in Austria and most other EU countries

    2) there is still no RAW support in LR or C1 Pro or Aperture as far as I know and this time lag between camera first introduced and full support is frustrating.

    I was going to buy one today, but guess what - no cameras here in Austria and even less lenses

    Why can a company which wants to be successful act like that?

    Cameras in the US just got to dealers in the last two days. People in the US are just starting to get theirs right now.

    Although from everything I've heard and read, it is hard to top the jpegs with Silkypix. So, like most cameras with no support I shoot RAW + jpeg and where needed I go back and reprocess selected RAWs later.

    Well, Ario might be able shed more light on this. There are few things in Silkypix (I use it for my GH-2 files) like the demosaicing sharpening that can not be found in other converters (AFAIK that is).

    I agree that the OOC JPGs look awesome on their own.

    HI Lee
    Thanks for the link - but it still means zooming in to manually focus, and I've never found that to be very satisfactory.

    My problem with all this is I often like to focus on something small with a background some way behind it. Not many cameras will do that well with contrast detect AF, but I find zoom in to focus means I then need to zoom out and recompose . . .by which time the focus is not right. Fine on a tripod for static subjects. Of course, zone focusing is great for street, and if you're taking shots of people at a few metres the camera will generally do a good job with AF anyway. Rangefinder patches work . . and so does focus peaking. If Fuji were to implement focus peaking on the camera, then I think it would be a great improvement, and I might be tempted - but unlike Peter I still like the IQ from the M9 and Leica lenses, and I rarely want to go above 2000 ISO (especially with f1.4 lenses!). Still, one cannot deny the achievement Fuji have made with the IQ.

    I have a very limited experience with Silkpix so I have choosen the setting which seems to be the less intrusive "For Photo retouching 16 bit"
    and with this setting after WB adjustment only I import the TIFF files into LR for further editing.
    In my view the results are better than the OOC jpg's and LR is for me easier to use and faster to react to the adjustments.
    P.S. I have dropped the version bundled with the camera which was giving me troubles in customizing the UI (graphic card compatibility?) and installed the ver 4 Pro for Mac (30 days trial) hoping that Adobe and/or Capture one will provide soon support for the X-1 Pro raw files.

    Great stuff, I love those vertical orientation alley shots - how are you finding the camera generally?

    An alley shot of my own. Does it illustrate the auto-DR capabilities? ISO 800 because the camera rightly chose the maximum DR setting. OOC JPEG, only change is a minor reduction of highlights in LR.

    DPreview have just released some sample shots and for the first in a long time the shots actually sell the IQ of the camera.

    No blown highlights ... who needs RAW?

    I hate you.. I hate all of you....



    Do you people have any idea how hard it is to look at these photos from the X-Pro1 and not hit the order button? Do you have any idea what this is doing to my will power meter?

    I swore I would not order another camera before it had been out in the real world for several months (all due to the X10 issues I suffered) and coming to this forum (and others) is really making things difficult for me.

    It's like Dr. Strangelove... trying to keep that hand under control... in my case trying to keep it from hitting the order button... ARRRRRGGH!!

    Great photos all, love the color, love the DR, love the contrast and sharpness of what the X-Pro1 is producing.. In case anyone thinks I really hate you... no, just jealous... Show me more... go ahead and twist my arm.

    Only negative I have heard is in regards to the AF.. a bit slow.. and it gets worse with low light... I hate it when that happens.
