FUJIFILM’S X-PRO1 marvel! Makerbot’s 3D revolution
X-PRO1 is an all new interchangeable lens camera system from FUJIFILM Corporation. The X-pro1’s Xmount has a thin lens mount, a thin flange back, a short back focus, and a very fast shutter time lag.
FUJIFILM created the EXR Processor Pro as a far more powerful processor for processing the image signal data. This development has maximized the full potential of the X-trans CMOSTM sensor to deliver high speed and high precision image processing.
Three compact XF Fujinon fast aperture prime lenses, “XF18MMF2 R”, “XF 35mmf1.4 R” and “XF60MMF2.4 R Macro” are also available. They all offer precise control over depth-of-field and deliver excellent out-of-focus bokeh due to the design of the moulded aperture diaphragm blades.
X-PRO1 carries FUJIFILM’S revolutionary Hybrid Viewfinder, with its ability to instantly switch between an Optical Viewfinder and Electronic Viewfinder. The Hybrid Viewfinder has added a new dimension to the pleasure of composing photographs. For the brightest viewing image, and to keep shutter lag to a minimum, users should choose the Optical Viewfinder. Those wanting focus confirmation, exposure information, white balance information and depth of field indicators should switch to Electronic Viewfinder.
The Electronic Viewfinder provides an excellent “live view” of the composition. The top and base are made from die-cast aluminum alloy which, combined with high quality touches like precise engraving on the top-plate and hand-enamelled lettering on the lenses, underlines the high definition built of the entire X-pro1 system.
Due to the precision milled from solid metal, the eye for detail extends to the shutter speed dial and exposure compensation control.
