Well here are the first images from a fantastic camera. Both Michael Coyne and myself are really loving the x-pro1. It feels nice, looks nice, shoots nice and that shutter noise is very sexy. Below are the images, straight from the camera, and a worked equivalent, totally Fletched. Feel free to download these raw files to your computer and have a play with them in photoshop. Have a look at the metadata for info about the image. All images were handheld, no time for tripods this morning. Later today we will be heading out to the Flinders Ranges and will do some side by side comparisons with the 5D2. More of those images to come. My initial feelings are that this camera is a worthy replacement for a bulky dslr system. If you have to travel light, this is the camera for you. Physically it is only marginally larger than the x100 so slinging it around your neck for a day is no problem. In fact I am wearing mine right now!, it is a fashion accessory!! Man bling! or Girl Bling too for that matter. Below are Michael Coyne’s images. These were shot at 6400 and 1000 iso respectively and are completely untouched jpg’s straight from the camera and have not been altered in any way.
