Understated styling, superb build quality and intuitive design make the X-Pro1 the perfect tool for travel, street and documentary photography.
Designed especially for the X-Pro1 are three new Fujinon XF prime lenses, each designed to offer the ultimate in image quality. An all-glass construction features aspherical elements that reduce chromatic aberation and Super EBC coatings that prevent flare.
Metal construction matches the build quality of the X-Pro1’s body, and a precision-machined aperture ring offers aperture adjustment in 1/3-stop increments.
With the XF lens range, Fujifilm provides photographers with the ultimate in image quality.
The Fujinon XF lens mount takes full advantage of the mirrorless design of the X-Pro1. By mounting the lens deeper inside the camera, closer to the sensor, resolution is increased across the frame. Information exchange between the body and lens ensure a responsive experience at all times.

A revolutionary 16-megapixel sensor, developed exclusively by Fuji, mimics the structure of silver halide film and delivers more sharpness than ever before.
The new APS-C 16MP X-Trans CMOS sensor in the X-Pro1 has been developed to fully exploit the exceptional performance of the XF lens series and capture the ultimate image quality.
Taking its inspiration from our experiences of traditional photographic film, FUJIFILM have adopted an innovative colour filter array that eliminates the need for an optical low-pass filter. This revolutionary sensor achieves new heights in resolution quality and colour reproduction and delivers brilliant optical performance from every lens.
Moiré occurs when two regular patterns overlap and interfere with each other creating a pattern that does not exist in reality. This is a common problem in cameras using Conventional Bayer arrays where the regular pattern of the sensor clashes with the pattern being captured.
Optical low-pass filters reduce the moiré issue, but lower the overall resolution of the captured image.
Moiré is not an issue with traditional film due to the irregular size and layout of the particles.
Learning from our experiences of traditional photography we arranged the patten of red, green and blue photosites on the surface of the Fujifilm X-Trans sensor in a more random manner than in conventional Bayer array sensors. This minimises moiré effects to the point that the X-Pro1 does not need a low-pass filter, which, in turn, boosts resolution and sharpness.
Without using an optical low-pass filter, moiré is eliminated while preserving high resolution
The X-Trans CMOS's 6 x 6 pixel pattern also ensures that colour reproduction is better than that achieved with an ordinary Bayer array.
All horizontal and vertical lines contain at least one R, G and B pixel whereas Bayer array sensors do not have R and B in some lines resulting in false colour reproduction.
Every time the lenses are changed there is a chance that dust may enter the camera. Even dust particles invisible to the human eye may degrade the quality of all the images. Ultra Sonic Vibration sensor cleaning can be set to occur automatically every time the cameras is switched on and off to ensure that dust particles that have adhered to the surface of the sensor are removed.
A hybrid optical/electronic viewfinder offers a choice of viewing modes and displays shooting information at a glance.
Fujifilm’s Hybrid Viewfinder technology allows photographers to choose between a bright, intuitive optical finder (OVF) and a highly accurate electronic view (EVF), complete with previews of depth of field and white balance. The X-Pro1 takes the concept further, using different optical magnifications and frame sizes to allow accurate framing with any of the XF-mount lenses in the system, even in OVF mode.
When an XF lens is mounted on the camera body, the most appropriate of the two available viewfinder magnifications is combined with the correct frame size. This gives the X-Pro1 photographer an instinctive view of their subject through the bright, high quality optical finder.
Viewfinder magnification changes automatically when an XF lens is mounted. There is very little difference in the angle of view between OVF and EVF modes, so switching between the two is smooth and natural.
Don’t let anything stand in the way of your creativity. The X-Pro1’s classic exposure controls, including a top-plate shutter-speed dial and traditional aperture ring, are simple and intuitive.
Above everything else, a camera’s controls should be intuitive. They should fall under your fingers and thumbs as you pick up the camera, and let you shoot quickly and easily without taking it away from your eye. The X-Pro1 draws on decades of classic camera design, and throws in a few modern touches for a perfect combination of old and new.
Traditional aperture rings surrounding the lenses fall naturally under the thumb and forefinger of the left hand as you hold the camera. Your right hand will find the lockable shutter speed dial just as naturally. Take complete control with manual exposure settings, or introduce automation with aperture priority, shutter priority or program AE modes.
Stay in control of exposure. A dedicated exposure compensation dial allows ±3 stops of adjustment in program AE, aperture priority AE or shutter priority AE mode, and falls naturally under the right thumb so it can be found without taking your eye away from the viewfinder.
To maximise control without taking your hand off the lens, the aperture ring adjusts in thirds of stop. The shutter speed can also be adjusted in thirds of a stop using the left and right menu buttons.
The conveniently placed "Q" button provides access to all of the non-mechnical shooting settings on one easy-to-use screen.
Building upon feedback from X100 users, the menu system has been improved to reduce the amount of scrolling required.
Hold down the Disp/Back button for a moment to activate the X-Pro1’s silent mode, which disables all electronic sounds and deactivates the focus assist lamp. Great for discreet shooting: no one will hear your reportage or street photography.
Switch off the X-Pro1 and for 20min it will hibernate in a special quick start up mode. Waking up from this state takes just 0.7sec, compared to 2.2 sec otherwise, meaning you’ll be ready to capture that moment more quickly.
Customise the X-Pro1’s operation to suit your photography. Program the camera’s Fn button to give quick access to one of a number of features with a single press. ISO sensitivity, depth-of-field confirmation, image size and quality, dynamic range, film simulation, ND filter and AF mode are just some of the options available.
Save and recall up to three sets of user-defined settings covering all aspects of the camera’s behaviour, from white balance to ISO and image size – no fumbling between menus required! Save settings for different users, or perhaps different styles of shooting, like landscapes or street shooting.
Turn the shutter speed dial to T to set an exposure time between ½ and 30sec, in third-stop steps. An additional B setting allows even longer exposures, up to 60 minutes. A traditional cable release can be used to avoid camera shake.
Select the X-Pro1’s self timer through the menu system. It’s not only handy for group photos, but also macro and long-exposure shots when you want to avoid blur caused by touching the camera. Choose between 2 or 10 seconds.
A dedicated AE/AF lock button can lock exposure, focus or both at once, enabling you to prioritise your subject over the background. Customise the X-Pro1’s behaviour to suit your own shooting style.
The X-Pro1 has three different metering modes. Multi metering dissects a scene into different zones and analyses each one in detail before deciding on the correct exposure. With spot metering you can stay in control and decide where to measure exposure from yourself – handy in tricky lighting conditions. Lastly, average metering uses a time-honoured and predictable method for evaluating the exposure of the whole scene. Flip between metering modes quickly and easily.
Fine tune images by adjusting in-camera colour saturation, highlight and shadow tone, and sharpness. Enjoy a level of technical control that will help you achieve exactly the look and feel you are looking for.
Choose between the two most commonly used colour spaces in the photographic industry: sRGB for screen and minilab reproduction, or Adobe RGB® for a broader colour gamut, more suited for fine-art printing.
When shooting at high-ISO settings, apply only as much noise reduction as you need, choosing the amount of processing from one of five levels.
In addition to auto white balance mode, the X-Pro1 also offers seven white-balance presets to cater for different light sources, a custom white balance facility and the ability to set a specific colour temperature in Kelvin.
White balance is also adjustable in very fine steps on both red⇔cyan and blue⇔yellow scales in increments of ±9 steps. This levels of precision allows subtle mood adjustments and creative effects to be created in camera.
Expand the normal sensitivity range of the X-Pro1 from ISO200-6400 to ISO100-12,800. Great when you need that extra sensitivity in low light, or the ability to shoot at larger apertures in bright light.
The X-Pro1’s Auto ISO setting varies ISO sensitivity to ensure a good combination of aperture and shutter speed is achieved every time. A sensitivity ceiling of up to ISO3200 can be set to ensure picture quality is maintained. Similarly a minimum shutter speed as long as ¼ sec can be programmed to safeguard against camera shake.
Traditional rangefinder-like design working in combination with Fuji’s digital technology. You’ll love it from the moment you pick it up.
No fewer than 49 focus points ensure autofocus operates swiftly and accurately, recognising the primary subject and bringing it into focus. The active autofocus point is selectable within the position of the AF frame.
When using the optical viewfinder, shutter lag is reduced to a minimum, resulting in fewer missed opportunities when timing is critical.
The contrast-detection autofocus system in the X-Pro1 is faster than previous versions of this technology, thanks to the speed of the new EXR image processor and the design of the CMOS sensor.
Distance and depth-of-field scales are shown in the viewfinder, together with an aperture value, providing a helpful guide for focusing. Focus can be adjusted manually by rotating the focus ring on the front of the lens while checking the image in live view. Focus-point zoom is available for focus confirmation.
An AF assist lamp automatically illuminates a subject in low light, assisting autofocus and aiding composition.
Focusing is accurate and precise, even in macro photography situations where depth of field is limited at close focusing distances.
Drawing on Fujifilm’s impressive heritage in professional transparency film, the X-Pro1 offers photographers colour reproduction modes that are based on classic emulsions from the era of film photography. Landscapers will love the vivid, bold colours of Velvia, while portrait photographers will appreciate the Astia simulation mode for its softness and skin tones. Provia is also present offering accurate colour reproduction and a natural look and feel.
Most commonly used in studio photography, PRO Neg.Std is ideal for portrait photography due to its extremely soft gradation for perfect reproduction of skin tone.
Pro Neg.Hi has a slightly harder gradation - great for fashion photography due to its sharper, more vivid effect which makes clothes stand out.
The X-Pro1 is as much at home shooting black & white images as it is capturing colour. A selection of filter effects allows you to simulate the effect of coloured filters in front of the lens, which drastically changes the way that various colours are represented in black & white. Use yellow, orange or red filters to add depth and texture to dramatic skies, or a green filter to enhance skin tones in portraits.
Capture images as your eye sees them, using dynamic-range control to hold detail in dark shadow areas and bright highlights. The X-Pro1 can apply dynamic-range control automatically or you can select the degree to which the tonal range is compressed yourself, choosing from 100 to 400%.
Sometimes a shot is too important to leave things to chance. Cover all eventualities by bracketing exposure, ISO, dynamic range and film mode, then decide which of the capture images you like best when you return home.
Press the shutter once and the X-Pro1 will capture three exposures of the same scene in rapid succession, each using a different dynamic range setting (100%, 200% and 400%).
Capture three images using different film simulation modes – PROVIA, Velvia and ASTIA – with just one press of the shutter release button.
In tricky lighting situations it’s often best to capture images at different exposures to make sure you get the photograph you want. The X-Pro1 can do this for you automatically, varying exposure in 1/3, 2/3 and whole stops.
Shoot at 5 frames per second for a maximum of 10 shots in a row, thanks the new, speedy EXR image processor and CMOS sensor. Great for fast moving subjects and on-the-fly street photography.
The X-Pro1 can capture JPEG files for convenience, 12-bit RAW files for the ultimate in image quality or both. Choose between Fine, Normal, Fine+RAW, Normal+RAW or RAW.
Process RAW files in camera, choosing white balance, exposure compensation and even film simulation modes retrospectively. The results are saved to memory card separately from the original file, which is left unchanged. No PC required!
Included with the camera is SILKPIX® software, which not only allows precise adjustment and processing of Raw files, but also playback of HD video. RAW files from the X-Pro1 can be processed in a number of popular software packages, including Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom. Also
Sweep the X-Pro1 through an angle of up to 180° and create stunning panoramic photographs without the need for post processing on your PC or Mac. Even when printed at A3 size there is no drop in image quality. Hold the camera vertically to include more top-to-bottom in the scene.
Part of a complete system, the X-Pro1 is supported by a suite of accessories that complement its elegant retro styling.
With its traditional aperture and shutter speed controls to the precision made metal body, the X-Pro1 is a camera that inspires confidence as soon as you pick it up.
It’s elegant, understated design is a joy to use, and doesn't attract attention – perfect for street photography, reportage and travel. A hybrid optical/electronic viewfinder allows you to get involved with your subject as you compose the scene in front of you.
From the moment you pick up the X-Pro1 you’ll enjoy the combination of superlative build quality and instinctive design. Complement yours with a range of accessories that enhance handling and add functionality.
