Professional Fuji X photographer...

Michael Coyne, from Australia, shoots X100s and now shoots the X-Pro 1.



There's also video of him using the new XP1 for the Australia launch of the camera...

Michael Coyne shooting the X-Pro 1

I just thought I'd share, in case anyone missed this. It's good to see the Xs being used professionally, instead of being compared by "measurbators."

My last comment was perhaps a bit rough. What I meant was that it seems the X100 and X-Pro 1 are constantly being compared to rangefinder cameras. Obviously, they're not...but people who are interested in these terrific cameras tend to be rangefinder owner/users. I guess it's inevitable that they will be compared.

Thanks for the link

Enjoyed the nicely produced movie. I wonder how much the photogs were paid to participate. All paid advertising usually makes the camera look good so I thank the "Analysts" as well. The only words about the camera that came through the music were about high ISO looking good and how a lens was small enough to be pocketable. Looks like a tightly controlled Advertisement. I would like to see a similar piece on olympus' new offering...

Professional Fuji Xpro photographers in the sense that Fuji paid them to shoot with their camera for this video and the example images on Fuji's website?

I am sure they are pros, but even the title says they are TESTING out the camera.

The video looks more like a 5D mark II promotion to me, great filming!

Thanks for sharing but honestly, I'm much more impressed with this short film, the videographer did amazing job. Great promotion for the Canon EOS 5D Mark II indeed

To clarify my point, Michael Coyne jumped to the X100 because he liked the camera...and he began using it professionally in the field. Fuji got wind of that, and they had him test the X-Pro 1. He liked it too, and Fuji asked him to be a spokesman of sorts with the video (shot with a 5DmkII and it looks great).

So, the video is a set-up, but my original point is that the X100 (and now the X-Pro 1) are out in the field being used as professional gear.

I wonder, though, how reliable he's found both. I love my X100, but I wonder how long it'll last with the aperture constantly opening and closing without my input. It's probably a cheaper repair than an M8 or M9 sensor replacement, anyway...
