I headed into London on the 1st of February 2014 to meet up with some good friends, Steve & Chris for a chance to hang out, grab some food, have a laugh and to hit the streets for some practise with my newly purchased Fuji X-Pro 1. I have to say that compared to carrying around a Nikon DSLR and a few lenses, it was refreshing to finally have a camera that is lighter and more suited to me, to street photography and a great addition to my weddings.
I’ve only had the camera a few days, so I’m still trying my best to find the best way to use the camera and to what settings work for me, but after shooting all day yesterday with the X-Pro 1 i was blown away by how great this camera really is and how detailed the images were.
I only had the 18mm lens that came with the camera and i’m still waiting for the 35mm lens to finally arrive, but i loved the 18mm and throughout the day it makes you work for the image but with clean sharp images.
Overall I’m still learning the camera and looking forward to using the X-Pro 1 when i fly to Vegas at the beginning of March and for some more street photography throughout the year, but so far, I’m very happy with the Fuji X-Pro 1.
Also if you’ve never been, then make sure you go and visit the The Photographers Gallery in London, well worth the visit and £4 entry fee.
