I just received my X pro2 yesterday. He has written a number of books on topics as diverse as Adobe PageMaker and sled dogs, and produced a beautiful book of photographs titled. The difference could also be down to processing styles, so warrants further investigation. Cropped these files to approx. Try cupping your left hand round the eyepiece and see if that helps.

The X-Pro 2 looks like a perfect complement to my Leica plus the Fuji is autofocus! I just ordered one will arrive in the coming days in the mail. Beyond this point you get rubbish. Fuji really could have made that less recessed for easier use. I would sometimes shoot raw just so I can process them in camera with different film simulations. Fuji X format lenses cannot be used in any other camera. For the short time I gave up my Fuji gear in favor of Sony, I ended up missing it and going back, and though Sony makes some very nice cameras, I just prefer what Fuji is doing so much more — from their bodies and lenses to the image file quality.
I also really like the weatherproofing of the Fuji which would be helpful with my ranch and cowboy photography. This is done by reducing the exposure and compensate with more digital amplification. The full dynamic range is preserved. Shame, as it limits the system considerably. However lots of photographers I know love their Fujis and produce wonderful images with them.
I bought 1 lens, the 23 and its really fine. When I turn the dial to a value, the on screen value is off set. Use it when dynamic range is not a problem Thanks for your reply, appreciate it! The interesting thing is, I have two Leica Summicron pre-asph lenses a 35 and 50. I think everything you mentioned about the use and picture quality is spot on. Amy, Thanks for a useful real-world review, and your photos are lovely as always. Since when do review images need to qualify for inclusion in a portfolio? Your logic if I understand is that you can afford to expose less thanks to the improvements in read noise.
Why are the X-series still being conceived around such a short-living Panasonic battery, completely missing the ergonomics a professional camera deserves? The major camera companies put articulating screens on their amateur and semi-pro cameras because it is a very desirable feature. You may need to set it yourself very quickly and easily done via the knob on top of the camera. Hello, I really like to read your Website because I get a lot of ideas for using my Fuji x100F. I cringe at the thought of making a change with it in a dark concert setting. In theory, it seems like a neat idea and such a cool throwback to cameras of yesteryear. I try to demonstrat my question in other words. The body itself is physically the largest in the Fuji arsenal.
I really had hoped that the X-Pro2 was kind of X-series v2. Am I being daft or have I clicked an auto setting by mistake I don't know about? Would be interested to know if that was the lens, or the programme you chose in camera, or pp. They are possible and users asked for them, so Fuji put them in the Pro2 and probably all future models, too. Really nice and straight forward review. You can see the stills from the video here:. DxO continues to ignore X-trans sensors which cannot be tested using their methods and software. Of course this is only relevant for raw files.
It makes me want to look inside and around the images. Disclaimer: Fujirumors has no affiliation with any of the equipment manufacturers mentioned on this site. Although this is lens is not favoured by many, I love what I can out of this lens due to its portability and the wide angle. It's something I find useful for daylight shooting when I want to open up the aperture and run with a slower shutter speed. I am an experienced and working photographer who uses her photos for web to high quality professional printing to museum quality fine art prints and the Fuji is outstanding for all.
I want to challenge Fuji to do even better. Cameras are more enjoyable than keyboards. The colour, micro contrast, and tonal gradation of the Fuji are more to my liking by a considerable margin. For that video I just set up some still life, moody, available light shots to look and see what the quality of the grain would look like. Does this process sound familiar? Its like a rebirth of the capability of those lenses. I would have to agree with your pros and cons about the X-Pro2 nearly 100%. As a Fuji user myself it is nice to see a new set of tools arise…and I wish I could get the package in an X-E3 with a joystick focus tool.
You try to make things confusing I think. I think you could use a pinhole camera and blow my vision through a lens out of the park. So what does the boost in resolution get you in practice? Anyway, just have a look at your histogram and you will know if there are blown out pixels. Thermidor wrote: celestialemissary wrote: Well you get less noise and less dynamic range. Quite a few Fuji haters on this forum :. In the meantime head over to my Fujifilm X-Pro 2 sample images or tab back to my verdict.
I agree with all your comments on the X-Pro 2 especially with the tilting screen but I have to say that the X-Pro 2 for me is really a camera that I use in my leisure and when I can take my time to shoot. You have me wondering now, with how great these images look! Your images are beautiful as well! And your thought to make the push in dial on the stick customizable to hit the finder magnification is a great idea and would be really useful, I think it would be perfect to hit once to magnify and click through the magnification levels, big, bigger, normal and also having it so you could maybe click and hold to center the focus point would be the best way. Though a bit slower wide open, I would venture to say that it is optically superior Sharper! So you have a magnification of 1. This method produces images with good contrast, very little noise and a high degree of detail, particularly in the shadow areas, which comes at the expense of the high end of the dynamic range. I want Fuji making the best bodies possible for all of us… not to leave some of us out… especially their biggest fans! A lot of what we decide to buy when we pick our camera-of-choice comes down to a subjective opinion on the photo-files, the way we will use the camera day-to-day, the style and ergonomics of the camera itself, and what we feel inspires us most to pick it up and take it with us.
