Fujifilm X-Pro1 Off Camera Flash

As you may or not know, I recently made the decision to swap my DSLR for a mirrorless camera for street photography. One of the huge benefits to using DSLR cameras for photographers – and particularly DSLRs manufactured by the ‘big hitters’ Canon and Nikon – is the massive ecosystem of supported accessories available for these cameras. DSLR technology has well and truly matured now, and the fact that DSLRs have been widely used in the professional sphere for well over a decade means that supported accessories for these cameras (and most importantly a flash system) are easy to come by. By contrast mirrorless cameras as a professional and prosumer tool are newer arrivals on the block, and the flash accessories for these cameras are still developing and being refined.

A few weeks ago I made a big decision about my street photography. I decided to buy another camera, and one specifically for street photography. It’s the first time I’ve made a specialised camera purchase, deciding to choose a camera purely for what it can offer me as a ‘pure’ street photography camera. To cut a long story short, I’ve swapped my jack of all trades Canon 6D DSLR for a Fujifilm X-Pro1 mirrorless camera. It wasn’t an easy decision, but read on for my early impressions of the switch I made, as well as a list of reasons why I swapped my DSLR for a mirrorless camera for street photography.

Introduction

Dear Streethunters.net Readers,

It is time for another camera review for Street Photography! This will be the 3rd camera review we have done so far. In the past we have written a review about the wonderful Ricoh GR for Street Photography and the powerful Canon 6D for Street Photography. Both those reviews are highly recommended because they are from a Street Photographer’s perspective.

Today, we will review a camera that was talked about by many when it first hit the market. Some praised it for what it had to offer, others gave it a serious beating because of its really bad AF performance. There are numerous reviews about it all over the web, and countless YouTube videos and tutorials on how to get best results from its focusing system. Despite any quirks this camera may have it is still a wonderful work of engineering that produces some of the most amazing files one could hope for. Today we review the Fujifilm X-Pro1.
