Camera Menus

The X-Pro1 gets much-improved menus compared to the X100, with a more-modern tabbed design and rationalized layout. Most of the same options are available, but rearranged more sensibly between the Shooting and Setup menus. When the camera is set to Movie mode, the former is replaced by a minimalist Movie menu.

Shooting menu

The shooting menu plays host to the camera's photographic settings, arranged reasonably logically across 5 tabs. Many of the most-used of these options - ISO, image processing options, etc - are easily accessible via the Q menu.

Option Values / Actions Notes

Movie Mode Shooting Menu

The Shooting Menu becomes much shorter when the drive mode is set to Movie, due to the X-Pro1's limited video options. One point worth knowing is that the Display Custom Setting option here is entirely independent of that for stills, i.e. you can choose to display different shooting information for each.

Set-up menu

The Set-up menu is pared-down relative to the X100's, with many of the options previously here rationalized into the shooting and playback menus. A number of the most-useful settings can be accessed from the external controls (such as Silent Mode and LCD brightness), meaning you won't need to delve in very often except to format your SD card or initiate sensor cleaning.

Playback menu

The X-Pro1's playback menu contains most of the same items as the X100's, but in a far more logical - and useful - order. Most importantly in-camera RAW conversion is now top of the list, which makes up for the loss of the RAW button, with other useful playback functions (protection, multi-frame erase etc) available off the first page. Facebook and YouTube addicts shouldn't be disappointed though, as 'Mark for upload to' tags can still be set.

What is the seemingly insurmountable problem with studying a traditional 35mm film rangefinder and re-engineering it into an equally capable digital rangefinder instead of trying to re-invent the wheel? The idea that you cannot accurately use manual focus is absurd. The whole focusing by wire thing is absurd. Again, why is everyone trying to re-invent the wheel?

After using one for a while and with the latest firmware I find the camera to be quite superb. Lets face it, most of us are looking for IQ firstly and has been said in the review lenses like the 35 1.4 are second to none in my book.
