X-Pro1 - Architecture
Sep 2, 2012

Yesterday I had the opportunity to lend a friend's X-Pro1 during a walk around Rotterdam/Holland. As a X100 owner I noticed that the X-Pro1 is a better camera. The sensor is better (X100's is already very good) and overall operation is faster. And that 35mm f1.4 lens is really excellent! Here are 3 images from yesterday. These images were shot in RAW and post processed.

Very nice.

Personally, I'm really looking forward to the Fuji 10-24/4 for this type of shooting.

WOW!!! That's why I would like an X Pro1!

Would you kindly comment on the PP software?

Thanks.

Problems with zooms is they exhibit distortion which even after lens profile correction may be visible with these kind of highly critical images.

Post processing was done with Nik Color Efex, on all three images.

Luc - having had the great pleasure of visiting Rotterdam and Holland in general many hundreds of times over the past 20 years for business I think you've caught the City beautifully. Some of the architecture in RTM is stunning, one of the best features for me, and the photographs show that.

What is the location for number 3? Is it the harbour or has the airport now got itself an airbridge to keep the passengers dry at long last?!

As a Fuji convert with the X100 I am starting to think about selling the Nikon system for an X-pro 1 - so this is a really helpful post.

Thanks Jerry!

Yes, Rotterdam has some stunning modern architecture. Very different from other Dutch cities. Image #3 is a part of the cruise terminal at De Kop van Zuid, near de Erasmusbrug. So, still getting wet at the airport I'm afraid

I'm also a X100 and Nikon shooter. For these images I used a X-Pro1 of a friend of mine. Very nice camera that X-Pro1, even better sensor than the X100 sensor and a stunning 35mm f1.4 lens. But the Nikon also has it's use when fast AF is a necessity. Also, I have some very nice lenses which shine on a FX sensor.

Thanks for commenting Jerry.

Thanks Luc - sadly the autofocus issue is the only one which stands between me and the sale of the D700 + lenses - having a small child (and one who loves air displays, like his daddy!) is the reason that the Nikon may well have to stay. If I could run to it I'd off-load the X100 and a couple of the FX Nikkors to fund the XPro1, but would I then miss the portability of the X100?

I took my X100 for a brief tour around the Orkney Islands last week, just for snapshots to pass on to work colleagues as it was a work trip, and I just cannot get over how good the camera is, for its size/weight/image quality ratio.

That first shot is outstanding. It would also look great converted to black and white.
