    August 15, 2012 - FUJIFILM Corporation (President: Shigehiro Nakajima) is delighted to announce the X-Pro1 has been crowned "European Professional Compact System Camera 2012-2013" by judges at the esteemed European Imaging and Sound Association (EISA) awards.
    EISA judges were particularly impressed with the X-Pro1's outstanding image quality. Commenting on the award, the EISA jury said; "It is a combination of exceptional lens quality, great build and a revolutionary new sensor design that makes the Fujifilm X-Pro1 such a successful camera. The X-Trans sensor, with its more film-like color filter layout over the pixels, really makes the most of the resolution delivered by the camera's Fujinon optics to produce images with far more detail than most 16-million-pixel models can manage. The hybrid viewfinder offers the photographer the best of both digital and traditional optical worlds, and the straightforward layout of controls on the body makes the X-Pro1 simple and pleasurable to use, even if the AF system is not the fastest on the market. Although it isn't the smallest compact system camera on the market, its size is more than compensated for by the quality of the images it produces and the enjoyment it brings to the user."
    Aimed at advanced photographers looking for an edge on their existing camera, the X-Pro1 is a new compact system packed with exciting features, lenses and accessories. Housed in a robust metal shell, the X-Pro1 contains a 16 megapixel APS-C X-Trans CMOS sensor, a Hybrid Multi-viewfinder, an original X-Mount for FUJINON XF lenses and an EXR Processor Pro, all unique to Fujifilm. With additional features such as Multi-exposure mode, Aperture and Shutter Priority, Enhanced Film Simulation mode and a TTL Hotshoe with a Sync Terminal, the X-Pro1 is already establishing itself as the professional choice for photographers.
    EISA is the unique association of 50 special interest magazines from 19 European countries. In June each year, the editors-in-chief from all EISA member magazines meet to decide which of the products analysed in their publications during the past year deserve a coveted EISA Award. The six categories under consideration are: Audio, Video, Home Theatre, Photography, In-Car Electronics and Mobile Devices.

    Beyond says: You know you want one of these baby *wicked* paired with some really nice lens.

      I tried X100, really hate the Nintendo button at the back. The center button of it is very hard to press, or should I say easily mis-pressed the up down left right.

      X-Pro 1, not sure though. Dr. Teh (dtbh) has one, and saw some stunning images posted by him.

      Fujifilm has an adapter for X-Pro 1 to use M lenses. Compared to Leica M9, it is cheap. Seeing the Fujifilm system alone, for me, the camera is overpriced.

      Wait for X200. I might get one then. My last X100 lasted me two weeks only. I just couldnt get used to the slow AF and non functional Manual Focus. But despite all that, the IQ from the X100 is fantastic.

      Now my son gonna be lucky. I gave him the X100 and he's enjoying it. I think he'll enjoy more with the X-Pro1.

  • Soaring like an Eagle ... and Flying with the wind
    A couple of weeks ago I started a brand new love affair. I want to soar like an eagle and fly with the wind. I've started training to qualify for a licence to fly a Powered Paraglider. You put a motor with a prop on your back, harness yourself to a parachute wing, start the motor, run a short take off run from almost anywhere, and then fly off into the sunset like below : The Paraglider itself is an amazing subject to shoot: Apart from the adrenalin rush associated with when you put your life at risk, the aim is to shoot photos from a perspective not usually available to most people. Here's a combo selfie while flying a powered paraglider over Pulau Indah, and a photo o...
