A few samples of what I’ve shot so far with the X-Pro 1. All of these photos would have never been taken had I not had this camera (duh). Can’t remember who said this first, but the quote “the best camera is the one you have with you” really rings true here. Now I always have a camera with me; not just the one on my crappy android.

A lot of these were taken in low light scenarios. I didn’t have any of my own light, but I felt confident in the X-pro 1’s abilities, and it didn’t disappoint. I regularly shot at ISO 6400 (the night city scape handheld), and got usable images. Because I still don’t have any native XF lenses I’m still manually focusing on adapted lenses, which makes critical focus difficult. Even so, I’m more familiar than ever with the X-pro’s capabilities, and these week or so I’ve had it has reassured me that the camera has a permanent place around my shoulder.
