    Thank you, I have an x-pro2 too

    I find the xp1 files quicker and easier to work on, the xp2 images are technically better, but the xp1 can just deliver a lovely photograph when everything is right

    I've just actually said this in the XT-1 thread, I find the T1 much faster, has a better evf and all-round a better camera ... BUT, the xpro1 has a charm that the others don't have. That Xtrans sensor V1 just has ... something! Where the newer cameras [Xpro2, XT-2, XT20] are more 'clinical' the xpro1 really does feel like you are shooting film for whatever reason. I find the files from it have a character you would have to process in a very specific way to achieve with files from the other Fuji cameras.

    I fricking hate the X-Pro 1 for many things.

    I hate the EVF, it's showing its age.
    I hate the offset aspect of the OVF…not really a fan of rangefinder way of shooting, I like what i see is what I get
    I hate the lack of joy stick
    I hate the AF, it hunts like nothing else. It drives me up the wall.
    I hate the lack of wifi function, something that I use a lot in the X-T1

    I will never sell it though…I love the way it looks and love clicking that shutter button….

    Yeah the EVF sucks if you have experienced anything better.
    I never touch the OVF, it's just not for me.
    I don't have a joystick on the XT-1 either so don't really miss that.
    The AF is sucky alright.
    I have wished it could connect to the Fuji app at times.

    I still love it, but must admit mine is up for sale locally. Only because I am poor and there's lenses I need.

    Yeah that sounds about right, the later cameras have different colours and tonal ranges, but something about the XP1 images just have a willing suspension of disbelief

    Which is a bit like film because people SELDOM look at film and say "wow it looks so real" but instead they say, 'what a lovely photo' and the XP1 is quite good at images that make people respond like that

    I agree the xpro 1 files are lovely but nothing beats imho the original x100 for that film like look

    Never shot with the original X100, but I had the X100s for a while. Lovely little cameras they are.

    Funny that - I bought another original X100 recently, thinking that I must have missed something with my first one after reading all the posts on here. However, I just cannot see it. I took my X100 and X30 away recently on a walking holiday and tbh, the X30 produced better images.

    However, I do agree though that the XP1 does make very fine images.

    Sadly yes - I am now trying seriously to avoid temptation and be sensible with my photography. It means understanding my (lack of) capabilities and being realistic. I have an XP1 (bought for just £250 mint) an XP2 (bought for an amazingly low price) which I use for considered photography and an X30 which I put in a pouch as a take anywhere camera. It seems to be working ATM.

    I thought you knew it was a clunker when you bought it - it is 2012 vintage and things have moved along somewhat - I certainly like mine :)

    I knew it's not "modern" certainly, my points are still valid though.

    I picked up an X100 as a portable 35mm camera. They are capable of some amazing results, but I think the 35mm FOV is either something thats for you or it isn't. I can't seem to gel with it as well as a 50mm.

    I had an XP1 with an 18mm and 35mm for a while and absolutely loved it. Not perfect by any means but really enjoyable to use.

    I don't often do black and white, but the X-Pro1 might start to change my mind...

    I've got a 27mm more or less permanently on my X-Pro1 as a go-anywhere camera when I can't be bothered with the fiddliness of my Sony RX100, despite it producing great results.

    Yes, it's much maligned because it does not have an aperture ring, but performs rather well.
