Some recent work with the X-Pro1.. [photos]
Jun 10, 2012

I've been using the X-Pro1 for over a month now and it has become my carry-with-me-all-the-time camera. I continue to be amazed by the capabilities of this camera and the three lenses. I thought I would share some recent work I have done with the X-Pro1. I've been playing quite a bit with the macro function and really enjoy it. You can see more on my website in the Fuji section.... the direct link is http://www.boxedlight.com/xp1/index.htm

Tom, these were all handheld... I hate lugging a tripod around. I have two of them, one a light weight Manfroto and another heavy weight Manfroto.

Understood... I like people photos as well but I deal with people all the time in my work and when I want to enjoy my hobby I choose not to deal with people. In particular I rarely do any street photography.. I just don't find it satisfying and I prefer not to invade anyone's space or privacy.

Always love your photos...

Is the XPro 1 a replacement to your Pentax kit or a lightweight carry around option?

What do you think of the Fuji's AF speed for your street shooting vs AF of Pentax?

For your style of photography you find better to use your Pentax or XPro 1 for highest IQ?

Thanks, Amy. The X-Pro1 has totally cured me of any desire I had for an M9. It is probably the best camera I have ever owned and the images straight out of the camera just blow me away. I have an upcoming trip to California to a week of photography and normally would have taken my Pentax K5 and lenses along with my MFT GH2 and lenses... after a month of using the X-Pro1 I have decide that will be the only camera I take with me. I am that confident in its abilities to perform for me out there.

I passed on the X100 because of the fixed lens. I just can't live with a single focal length. I have seen great images from the X100 and almost pulled the trigger but in the end I couldn't do it because I knew the X-Pro1 was on the way.

First-rate photos, as usual, Jim. On your website, 'The Maestro' photo of street art is far and away my favorite.

Cheers,

Not a replacement but I will use it for anything that does not require a tele or wide angle zoom for the time being. IQ is better than the K5.

What do you think of the Fuji's AF speed for your street shooting vs AF of Pentax?

I am not a street shooter so can't really give you an answer. If I were, I would use manaul mode and zone focus rather than depend on the AF.

For your style of photography you find better to use your Pentax or XPro 1 for highest IQ?

X-Pro1 is the hands down winner. Best IQ I have seen straight out of a camera in years.
