Fuji X-Pro1 High ISO Capability: Just a Teaser

Fuji X-Pro1 High ISO Teaser:

By the way, for those who have not seen it yet, I wrote up a review of the Fuji X-Pro, and it can be found HERE.  As the title says, this is just a little teaser.  I will be doing a more in depth review of the high ISO capability of the Fuji X-Pro1 soon.  I just couldn’t wait because I’m a bit excited at the results :).  As we all know, the Leica M9 isn’t a high ISO king but that’s ok because the highest I really shoot in the street is 1250 ISO, and Leica has fast lenses.  I’ve been shooting with the Fuji a lot over these couple of days (lens reviews for the X-pro1 will be out soon), and I’ve been trying to test all of the features to get a feel for it.  High ISO is quite frankly, amazing.

I find it a bit difficult to shoot high ISO because I’m a bit old school when it comes to that.  I was brought up to always choose the lowest possible ISO that I can get away with, which is why I don’t really have many super high ISO photos from the Fuji X-Pro1.  It’s a habit that’s hard to break but with results like this, that just might change :).  Check these photos out.  I don’t know, I don’t have something like a Nikon to test right now, so I can’t tell you if something else is better but who cares?  The high ISO files from the X-Pro1 are awesome.  Below the photos are descriptions to tell you what settings I used.  All photos were jpegs coming straight out of the camera with no photoshopping.  Please stay tuned for more stuff on the X-Pro1.  Once again, if you want my take on the X-Pro1, please check out my review.  Thanks for stopping by, and take care!

↑ I used this photo above.  It was shot with the 35mm at a staggering 6400 ISO!  In my opinion, the results are incredible.
