  • It's true to say that it's horses for courses. I love my X-Pro 1 and have shot great images with it in a relaxed environment. HOWEVER, I do have my frustrations with it. It doesn't work so well for ...
  • Thanks for your kind words about the candids. Regarding the focusing, Not sure what you mean by mashing the shutter. I used to set Focus to M and then use the AE-L/AF-L button to focus. However, ...
  • I have been using the X-pro1 for 6 months now, with 18mm, 35mm and 60mm lenses. On the whole it's an OK body but at events the failure rate tends to be very high, partly because focus locking is ...
  • The combination of X-Pro 1 with the above lens seems to work well as you will see in the images below. I shoot in manila focus mode and in RAW format. However, what I find is that the images ...
  • Replied in Hmmm
    The latest Adobe DNG convertor works fine for X-Pro 1 RAW files now. It was my error in selecting the right folder. Much better to convert the files to dng for two main reasons: 1. DNGs have a ...
  • Created discussions X-Pro 1 and DNG
    Has anyone had success in converting X-Pro 1 RAW files to DNG on Mac? The Adobe DNG Convertor doesn't recognise these files. Sorry if this topic has already been covered. Thanks.
  • Replied in More Info
    I did some tests yesterday and I think using manual mode provides speedy and satisfactory results as I can control the ambient light just by altering the shutter speed. Phew! Thanks again for all ...
  • Replied in More Info
    Zee, My sincere thanks for the long explanations and information, which is most helpful. I suppose I had not realised that Nikon and Canon work so differently and that's why I was slightly ...
  • That's for your observation. I never had underexposure issues with my Nikon SB800s but I have also found that 480 EX II always underexposes in ETTL mode. I thought something was wrong with my 480 ...
  • Do you apply the flash EC on the camera or flash? I reduced the output on the flash itself by - 1 1/3 for fill flash. I have not tried it in the camera menu although I don't think it should make ...
  • That's helpful to know. I also do event photography professionally and used the 480 EXII bounced off the ceiling with a white card reflecting a bit of catch light. It worked fine indoors at 1000 ...
  • Created discussions Fill-in flash and 5D3
    I have switched from Nikon D3 to 5D mk 3. With my Nikon D3 and SB800, using TTL BL and exposure compensation of -1 1/3 I used  to get great results shooting wedding groups and individuals on a ...
  • Thanks for sharing your experience. I just need to get a bit more confidence in my X-Pro 1 before I cover a commercial assignment with it. I have more confidence in my Fuji X100, which I have been ...
  • Replied in Thanks Nate,
    Nathan, you inspired me to dig out my Nikon 105mm/f2.5 lens. here is something I shot in very low light this evening. I think I shot it at f4.
  • Thanks John for the great image. Would you mind if I asked if it was a commercial job? I won't have any hesitation is using X-Pro 1 for a personal job because if I missed the shot then that won't ...
  • Nick, I suggest you place the camera on a tripod and use the monitor at the back of the camera to focus by enlarging the subject. See how you get on. Sorry about the boring bus stop sign picture. :-) ...
  • Yes, I agree. X-Pro 1 is a great camera to use in a controlled environment but not in run and gun situations. Flash has not been an issue for me as I rarely use flash on the camera. Instead I am an ...
  • Nick, after reading about your problem I went out with my X-Pro 1 out with Nikon 105mm/f2.5 manual lens lens and here are the two pics. I used the EVF to focus. They are both shot in low light at ...
  • Replied in Thanks Nate,
    That looks pretty impressive. Thanks for taking time to post the images. How easy did you find manually focusing the lens? Nishi
  • Created discussions X-Pro 1 for event photography
    I have been using my Nikon D3 so far for event photography work, where speed of capturing the moments in sharp focus is crucial. I bought X-Pro 1 a couple of months ago and have not had the ...
