    Part25 of my X-Pro1 Story.

    You've perhaps been following my X-Pro1 story... Which you can pick up in this thread

    The X-Pro1, Still Perfectly Valid!

    I was curious. Too curious... I'd read what everyone else had to say, but I needed to know what I had to say.

    I think some of you might be curious too...?

    So here it begins.

    The X-Pro2 review!

    Part One: Compared to the X-Pro1, because obviously the X-Pro2 is better in every single way, right? Er, not so much...

    Sunday morning..

    So that must mean it's time for another instalment of my X-Pro1 story.

    This week we continue looking at the haptics of the X-Pro2 Vs the X-Pro1

    The X-Pro2 Review Part Two: Dials Vs the X-Pro1

    Newer = better?

    Maybe.. Just maybe...

    Continuing the X-Pro1 review, we continue comparing it against the X-Pro2. This time we're looking at the view finder, and finding that the X-Pro2 doesn't stack up all that well... But why?

    OK, I'm still putting the final touches to the first page of my X-Pro2 review/rhetoric article... It might go live today, but equally it's a lovely day, so I might shelve it and go out :D

    So to be going on with...

    Here's a page that references everything I've written about the X-Pro1, plus the lens reviews and the bit about the XP1 XP2 comparison, plus the Leica M comparison, and some stories and images shot with the X-Pro1.

    Enjoy!

    OK,

    Part Two of the 100% X-Pro2 review is now up!

    Part one is here

    http://adambonn.com/my-love-affair-with-the-fujifilm-x-pro1/xp2-thirty/

    Where I talk about why I chose the X-Pro2, and what benefits it has (to me) over the original

    This week, in part two, I take a look at the image quality of the newer camera, and why that IQ needs to be stand alone, and not just judged against the predecessor!

    As per the X-Pro1 series, I'll be sharing tips, tricks and info (and opinion) on a weekly basis!

    Enjoy!

    Hi everyone,

    I've updated my website to feature the next instalment of my X-Pro2 story!

    We'll be taking a 3 part look at some of the focusing features on the new X-Pro camera.

    Continuing my 100% X-Pro2 Review; Part 3: Setting up manual focus on the X-Pro2. Any changes needed from the original?

    I'll also update my X-Pro2 thread with this, so please forgive the indulgence...

    And I ASSUME that Rico will give us the full low-down...

    But

    I'm sure I won't be the only internet writer blogging about this today(!!), but here's my 1st look at the Fujifilm XPro2 new Firmware - so what do all these new things mean & do?

    I think I have some answers!

    Today I begin a series about using the RFC (powered by SilkyPix) RAW convertor that is supplied with Fuji camera.

    I'm not about to big RFC up as the best tool out there (it's not!), but it gets a "bad press" and when a lot of people say that something is very bad, I (personally) always like to take a look for myself..

    After the 'far more work than I expected' series about RFC, it's back to actually talking about photography with the X-Pro2 for this week's instalment :)

    The regular followers out there will notice that I'm releasing this on Saturday night, not Sunday morning...

    ...This means two things: 1) Yes I clearly have no life :D and 2) I'm on location all day tomorrow!

    So for this week, I recall the first time I trusted the X-Pro2 out in the field... How did I find it?

    The next 4 instalments will be about the XF56APD

    Seeing as this isn't a X-Pro2 specific product, I've started a new thread in the XF lens section, which you can reach on the link below

    After the 4 part XF56 APD review, it's time to get back to the reality of what I actually do own and can afford :D

    With many people (but not all of course) about to enter into the ritual of gift giving, I take a look at what to get your loved one.. especially if you're on a budget
