Too little and far too late ... I've abandoned Aperture for Lightroom nearly 6 months ago due to the non existent support for Fuji RAW files.

Imagefoundry: getting some really nasty color tearing with ACR 7.1 and Fuji X-Pro1. In some cases (not too often, thankfully) it makes images borderline unusable - example crop below:

I'm getting the same results, its especially bad with red detail, in my case, red text as well, smearing all over the place where the camera jpgs are fine.

Seahster: Hi everyone,

I've been a happy owner of the X-Pro1 for a few weeks now, and have been shooting and documenting my thoughts on this camera on http://handcarryonly.com/tagged/fuji in case anyone is interested.

I would say it is not a camera for everyone and every situation but for street and travel photography, it is where it truly excels, with the high IQ and low weight package.

Hi everyone, thanks for your kind words all around.

mcslsk: congrats on your Canon G1X, its a great camera as well, do post shots to share with everyone when you have a chance!

I started my photography back in the film days and I guess I am nostalgic about the look that film provides. The new X-trans sensor in the X-Pro1 is supposed to mimic the distribution of grain in film, one of the reasons why I like it so much, the noise, when it does appear, is pretty organic looking and inoffensive.

As for the colours, I've treated the photos in Aperture with VSCO (with my own tweaks). I don't have a formula for how I pp my pictures but go with what 'seems to fit the theme'. I guess I felt the ole skool film look went with the idea that these markets are increasingly being antiquated by modern conveniences and supermarkets. Please bookmark Handcarry Only, I will post regular updates!

I'm sorry to say but I think this camera is butt ugly, what's with the swollen head? Pass (for me)

I'm sorry but I think the design team fell asleep at the wheel here, it is horrendously ugly, the camera equivalent of a Fiat Multipla ... did they not learn anything from the success of Fuji's X100?
