Fujifilm X-Pro1: Lab Test Results & Comments

Jill Rahn's picture
The new Fujifilm X-Pro1 has a stylish, retro design with many interesting features. It is Fujifilm’s first compact system camera with Fujifilm’s new lens mount system. Fujifilm currently offers three lenses for the “X mount”: the XF18mm f/2 R, the XF35mm f/1.4 R, and the XF60mm f/2.4 R Macro. We used the 35mm lens for all our test images and the 60mm lens for the portrait test shot.

The X-Pro1 is Fujifilm’s first CSC system camera with a new lens mount (“X lens”). The stylish camera has an APS-C-sized sensor with a brand-new RGB pattern and a resolution of 16MP. The most remarkable feature is its hybrid viewfinder.

The camera offers a high-resolution optical/electronic viewfinder (1.44 million RGB dots) and a high-resolution LCD on the back (1.23 million RGB dots). The LCD screen is fixed.

The camera has a stylish, retro design and looks like a classic analog viewfinder system camera. All technical tests were done with the 35mm lens (shown in this image), while we used the 60mm lens for the portrait shot.

The most remarkable feature of the camera is the “hybrid viewfinder.” It is a very large and bright optical viewfinder that also displays a lot of additional image information. This information is mirrored into the viewfinder by an LCD screen with very high resolution (1.44 million RGB dots). In addition, the camera can show a complete high-resolution image in the viewfinder. The camera also offers a viewfinder zoom function for manual focusing. Using the “VIEW MODE” button on the back and the small hand gear on the front, the photographer can change between an electronic viewfinder image on the LCD on the back or the different viewfinder modes in the “optical” viewfinder.

The P, S, A, and M exposure modes are selected by the combination of the aperture setting (lens ring) and the shutter speed dial on the top. When using both function elements in the “A” setting the camera will work in Program mode.

The camera offers a combination interface for USB data transfer and TV connection (analog PAL/NTSC) and an HDMI interface for high-resolution presentation of images and videos.

The camera offers all the standard exposure modes like P, S, A, and M. If the aperture ring on the lens and the shutter speed dial on the top are positioned to the red “A” (for automatic) it will work in Program mode. If one of the settings is changed to a user-defined value the camera will work in Shutter- or Aperture-Priority mode. The photographer can change both settings for manual exposure control.

The camera has numerous functions that can be used to change parameters quickly and easily. An additional dial on the top allows users to compensate the automatic exposure settings by +/- 2 EV stops. The “Q” button on the back provides access to many other controls. This precludes the need to open the full Menu for many settings, and all the options are displayed clearly on the LCD screen. The camera also offers Full HD video at 24 frames per second.

The Fujifilm X-Pro1 showed a slight color shift into the yellow direction (Auto White Balance mode). Nevertheless, the skin tones are very good and the sharp and crisp reproduction of fine details like the hair and eyelashes is excellent.

Image Quality
Color:
The GretagMacbeth test chart was shot in Auto White Balance mode and displays a slight shift into the yellow and green direction. Nevertheless, skin tones are reproduced nearly perfectly, with only brighter skin tones displaying a slightly high magenta rate. The skin tones in the portrait test shot are quite natural.

The camera showed a slight degree of oversaturation (106.9 percent) although it should be noted that this is lower than in images taken with professional SLR systems like Canon’s 1D X or Nikon’s D800.

The standard test box shows a very clear and crisp image. It also proves the high quality of the new lens system. Test results for light falloff (vignetting) and distortion are very good.

Sharpness: The camera showed very crisp and clean images without any moiré effects. The APS-C X-Trans CMOS sensor uses a special RGB array which virtually eliminates aliasing effects or moiré. (Note: moiré and aliasing effects are often seen in fine detail in standard Bayer pattern sensors.) Tested with the 35mm lens, the X-Pro1 reproduced the test chart with 3080 lines per picture height, which is nearly the nominal sensor resolution of 3264 lines in picture height. The standard test box image shows the high quality and high sharpness. Every detail is reproduced clearly and crisply. The structure of the hair and the eyelashes in the portrait shot are very natural, even though they are reproduced with high sharpness.

Noise: The noise results in our tests are extremely good. The luminance noise level is very low and stays way below the y-factor of 1.0 percent. Color noise is nearly invisible in images taken at ISO 200 to 1600, although it is noticeable in images at ISO 3200 and 6400. Noise artifacts become annoying only in the Hi-ISO modes up to 25,600.
The results of the dynamic range tests are excellent: the camera showed a maximum of 12 f/stops and keeps a high level of about 11 f/stops even up to ISO mode 3200.

The GretagMacbeth test chart was shot in Auto White Balance mode and displays a slight shift into the yellow and green direction.

You need to realize that when you were born, your brain and mind didn't include anything negative. In other words, no one is born with negative thoughts stored somewhere in wait to develop. cslawtalk

Vanke, this is blazing a painful thing. On the one hand, they are very successful in the past, Wang made news, Vanke development projects, the kind of seamless propaganda model, not only outdated, but can not find new ideas; On the one hand, by the frenzied speculation mansion, the quest for social loafing speculators to drive up the price to selling properties model also suffered heavy losses, nearly drowned. Thus, in 2006 after facing london Vanke only two words: collapse.

The X100 may have looked very

The X100 may have looked very traditional but it housed some very modern technologies - foremost amongst which was its hybrid optical/electronic viewfinder. This design not only allowed the choice of a rangefinder-style optical view or a fully electronic view, but was also able to overlay electronic data over the optical viewfinder. It was a masterpiece of engineering, but appeared to be a design very much dependent on its use with an integrated prime lens.
