  • 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...

    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.

    Yes there is a lot there so you need to read this in bits. I did not learn that in one day. Watch the Stansphoto's site. A very good explanation to describe what happened to you while you were...

    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 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...

  • 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 courage...
  • Replied in Thanks Nate,
    You have prompted me to get my Nikon 105/2.5 out of the bag as well. It has been sitting there for several years unused. I read that the old Nikon film lenses are not ideal for digital use as do...
  • I sent my form and the receipt on 18th December and received the free 35mm f1.4 lens this morning. Absolutely delighted with it. Nishi
  • I have had my X-Pro 1 for three weeks now and I absolutely love it. Like others have said, the IQ is fantastic and it's light weight. I use my X-Pro 1 with a 60mm macro for botanical pictures for...
