X-Pro 1: JnK Half case
Apr 3, 2012

It is on sale now on ebay. The JnK case...

http://www.ebay.com/itm/JnK-half-case-for-Fuji-Fujifilm-X-Pro1-X-pro1-Xpro-1-/220992805069?pt=US_Camera_Cases_Bags&hash=item33743298cd#ht_10793wt_1165

Doesn't look as good as they did on the X100 though...

I'll probably wait for the Gariz half case
In reply to Cyclopedia Brown, Apr 3, 2012

I'm using the Gariz half case on my X100 currently. Love the metal base and the opening for SD/battery. I think I'm gonna wait for that instead.

The Gariz looked nice on the X100 but they only had that one color. If they make it for the X-Pro1 they better go with black.

I dont think I will use my money on a half case. Seems unnecessary. The cost of this case is a third of the price of a new lens!

I have a Luigi case from http://www.leicatime.com/

I am very happy with it. Its going to be some time before he will be making these cases so in the mean time I want something to protect it a bit so I may go with this case for now

Gaffer tape or electrical tape are the cheapest and most effective options.

It looks alright, but USD$200 is a fair bit. The copy-cat cases should come out at USD$50 within a few weeks and be just as good (if not better) in quality/materials.

No, $200 is a blatant ripoff. Are there actually people out there stupid enough to pay it?
It makes the system price almost look like a bargain. Almost.

I just got in the JnK case. The quality fit and finish is amazing. Adds some class to the camera. I also have The Luigi case for the X100 and the JnK case is as nice if not nicer. Its pricey but the craftsmanship is worth it.

I can post picture if you guys are interested.

I have the Gariz half case as well.

I asked them about a similar one for the XPro1 and they said it would be of a similar design, with the metal base and battery access, and "Three colors will be available " black, brown, orange " "

But the final price was not set yet (I received their email yesterday). It should be available early next month.

Hoping it won't be excessively priced (like everything else was with the X's). Not holding my breath though (and already preparing rationalizations and justifications why it is needed...)
