Rob Galbraith, probably one of the most respected professional digital photo journalists gives his lean on the Fuji S1 Pro a camera at a low price which promises to deliver much (6 megapixels), Rob was at PMA 2000 and handled the camera, purely from a journalists point of view here's what he says "During a demo, one Fuji rep went so far as to say that one potential use was photojournalism. When challenged on this point, his response was "Why not?" During another demo, a different rep, who was aware I was a news photographer, pointed at the Nikon D1 hanging around my neck and said "you won't need one of those anymore." Egads. The S1 Pro may be a good camera, but lest you have any doubts, let me assure you that this is not a camera built for pro photojournalists."
