  • The Fujifilm X-Pro1 is a nice compromise if you can't afford a Leica but want to approximate the experience and get some stunning photo quality to boot.


  • The Fujifilm X-Pro1 feels like the natural interchangeable lens evolution of the incredibly popular X-100 camera, offering similarly refined, intuitive handling, fantastic image quality, premium build quality and three high-quality lenses on launch. Unfortunately like the X-100 it also suffers from slightly sluggish auto-focusing, awkward manual focusing, slow write speeds and merely average video mode, and the hybrid viewfinder doesn't lend itself so well to interchangeable lenses as the fixed lens on the X100.


  • The X-Pro1 is a camera that's hard not to like - the retro rangefinder look is cool, controls are nicely placed and materials, build quality and overall fit and finish are quite nice. Auto focus and shutter lag performance are good, as is image quality - combine this with ISO performance that, frankly, sets a new standard for APS-C sensor cameras to my eye and it's clear Fuji has done a lot of things right with their latest mirrorless, interchangeable lens offering.

    - I found each button/control was well labeled and easy to reach with my finger tips.
    - Bottom line - FujiFilm's latest "S" series super-zoom is an improvement over past models.
    - Indoors both displays get a bit noisy.
    - Overall I noticed moderate barrel distortion at the wide end, but only slight pincushioning at the telephoto end.

    - It's very user-friendly, while still offering a few powerful options that advanced users will appreciate.
    - The lens cap can be a bit frustrating since the lens barrel protrudes when you turn the camera on and pushes into the lens cap.
    - At ISO 3200 and ISO 6400, the S1800 captures a lower resolution file (only 3MP), which is practically unusable.
    - The S1800's control scheme is intuitive and easy to access for the most part.
    - The S1800's grip is great.

    - The scene modes ought to work just fine.
    - The ability to take natural-color images is also significant for users who don't want to buy or carry more than one camera.
    - The cameras' infrared capability is particularly useful for forensic work in law enforcement.

    - The camera has two memory card slots: one for CompactFlash, the other for
    the mostly useless xD-Picture Cards.

    - Unfortunately, the camera can't automatically jump from one drive to another if a card fills up.
    - A handy menu on the rear LCD provides a short description of each of the S2's 15 custom settings as you search.
    - During testing, we really appreciated the camera's sticky self-timer mode; many cameras make you reselect the mode before each shot.
    - No slowpoke here: With a flip of the power switch, this camera is ready to shoot.

    - It has a new version of the company's extended-range SR sensor, with new adjustments that are meant specifically to handle facial highlights and white clothing (wedding dresses).
    - The rubber-coated handgrip is comfortable, allowing plenty of relief between the user's fingers and Nikon's fat new optics.
    - The FinePix S5 has Nikon's very comfortable dish-shaped 4-way controller to the right of the LCD.

    - It's hard to see the reason for having five dynamic range options in the new camera, though, ranging between 100 per cent (no extra) to 400 per cent (the maximum).
    - However, as with the S3 Pro before it, the internal JPEG processing doesn't quite do justice to the extraordinary level of highlight detail dormant in the RAW files.

  • Rating Unavailable

    - A complete set of exposure controls is available on the S3 Pro, including all four main exposure modes; both flash and ambient exposure compensation to plus or minus 3EV; autoexposure bracketing; and matrix, center-weighted, and spot metering modes.
    - The viewfinder is clear and bright, and it shows about 95 percent of the actual image area.
    - At default settings, whether shooting JPEG or raw, its images are vibrant and juicy.

    - Fujifilm does provide four rechargeable AA batteries and a nice, compact travel charger.

    - All in all, this is a very important camera, as it will make forensics investigations much easier for crime scene analysis and forgery detection.
