I know that some of you have been following my X-Pro1 love story, from the thread here The X-Pro1, Still Perfectly Valid! But seeing as this week, we went over 10,000 words I thought it time post a overview Unless someone can tell me otherwise (and please do), I think that I've now created one of the (if not simply 'the') largest opinion* based X-Pro1 articles on the internet. (*there's facts and stuff in there too and of course many things are also true of the later X cameras!!) I remain as passionate and enthusiastic about the X-Pro1 as I always, I know it's neither the newest or best camera out there, but I sincerely believe it's a perfectly valid photography solution, offering a signature look to it files, and in usage, the body responds well to be treated like a film camera. So, 10258 words and counting... and I've yet to run out of ideas to write about View attachment 26122 So here's a overview: Part 1: https://adambonndotc...ujifilm-x-pro1/ When you fall for a camera, does it always work out how you think? "Boy meets camera, lives happily ever, right? WRONG! But how wrong? And can two wrongs make a right?" Part2: https://adambonn.com...x-pro1/finally/ When you dream that a camera will be everything you hoped, how will you react when it isn't? "This is the part where I moan, complain and moan some more about the laggy EVF, the woefully inaccurate OVF experience, the glacier slow AF" Part3: https://adambonn.com...pro1/xp1-three/ When you start to miss imperfection. "The second time around the X-Pro1 became so very, very much more than eye candy to me. I finally figured out how to use it, I fell in love with it holistically" Part4: https://adambonn.com...-pro1/xp1-four/ When you (well I !!) start to realise it's the way that files look that's important " it was enough to draw me in - to forgive the camera its quirks and foibles and want to get the best from it." Part5: https://adambonn.com...-pro1/xp1-five/ When you try to define just exactly what it is that you love about the look of an image " IN MY OPINION and TOO MY EYE the X-Pro1 has a signature to its images, a look that I love very much." Part6: https://adambonn.com...x-pro1/xp1-six/ When you understand how over come physical limitations, via self improvement "as you can see (and perhaps agree) by taking back control of focus from the shutter button, we still can utilize the benefits of AF" Part7: https://adambonn.com...pro1/xp1-seven/ When you understand that blind love of a camera is only a personal view point and that's important "when things get personal, then people tend to bring their A game, and a strong A game can accomplish anything" Part8: https://adambonn.com...pro1/xp1-eight/ When you start to look at what bits and bobs you can add on to your camera "they add to the camera, and they enrich the overall ownership experience" Part9: https://adambonn.com...-pro1/xp1-nine/ When you realise that companies other than the OEM can offer valid items for your camera "I’m going to say that if you’re getting a genuine benefit" Part10: https://adambonn.com...x-pro1/xp1-ten/ When you have a good look at your camera's files and find your own path "Why would I want to truncate my potential output by dismissing any of the available options"
