The Fujifilm X Pro 1 offers a unique set of features, some ground-breaking technology you have to see to believe, world class low light and high ISO image quality, and a bold price tag that makes you think it's got to be one of the best cameras you can buy. But is it?
Behind it's cool or not cool neo-retro styling, there's a real (and real different) mirrorless camera and new series of legendary Fujifilm lenses that want to be the centerpiece of your photo and video image making process. No matter if you're a photo enthusiast or a working pro photographer you will quickly see that the X Pro 1 is refreshing, inspiring.... as well as frustrating and maybe a little disappointing to some.
Photo innovator Will Crockett from ShootSmarter.com is the leading voice and global expert in the migration to mirrorless cameras and he has has created thousands of images with the X Pro 1 using the first three Fujifilm XF series lenses. Looking beyond all the useless stats and marketing hype, Will shares an open and unbiased view how good the photos and video are from the X Pro 1, how easy is it to learn and shoot under real life shooting conditions, what kind of person will be glad they bought the X Pro and who will be better to choose another camera instead.

An award-winning street photographer who has been creating memorable images in the great photojournalistic tradition since 1962, Joel Meyerowitz pioneered the use of color in this slice of life genre, and his classic book on Cape Cod, “Cape Light” was instrumental in changing the prevailing dismissive attitudes toward color photography. Within a few days of the 9/11 attacks on The World Trade Center, Meyerowitz began to create an archive of the destruction and recovery at Ground Zero that consists of over 8,000 images of the aftermath of the tragedy. In this latest Leica Portrait video, Joel shares the story of his transition from junior art director to legendary photographer.
