Not to bad, based on its potential.

The initial proper reviews and hi-res images should be interesting.

The images and the video on dpreview.com now are a fiasco.

See the video from Michael Fletcher at:

Christian Fletcher and Michael Coyne have been using the camera in S.A. Christian has a blog entry on it but his web server has been overwhelmed by the number of visitors. When it comes back, see:
http://www.christianfletcher.com.au/blog/

and Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Christia ... 1648387955

Some idiot at Fuji decided to omit adding a dioptre adjustment to the viewfinder! Who are the photographers most likely to buy this camera ? Older, cashed up ,rangefinder nostalgia ridden photographers...who all wear glasses!

I would have loved to have been at the conference table when they were discussing that one.......No, wait aminute.......I don't speak Japanese, so there wouldhave been be no point.
:evil: :evil: :evil: :evil:

On the plus side....the sample images look bloody beautiful.

Settle down Matt. :)

They have said they left it out because of space considerations caused by the magnifying apparatus in the viewfinder.

Got $30 on you? http://www.mainlinephoto.com.au/category3_1.htm

XPro1 media release today, apparently

Twitter tells me a certain Leigh :) Stark was twittering about the price this arvo, is this a co-incidence? haha.

Do we have a ship date for Australia yet?

Colour in pics OK
Body design gorgeous
Pricing - WTF!

Images - totally underwhelming for me. I have seen better from P&S.

To date, there have been few images posted from a production camera, and a lot that have have been little more than snapshots, so I can't disagree there.

Some useful shots (and info) in this thread though:

I think it will hold its own. Time will tell.

Zack Arias is in Dubai and has been posting images taken with the X-Pro1 on his blog.

This little quote from his blog was amusing:

I’ve seen people bitching and moaning and complaining about the Fuji X-Pro1 on photography forums. They have no idea what they are talking about.


He must read DPReview. Someone should tell him it's not just the XPro1 that cops it. :D
