Fuji X-Pro 1 Review


Inside Fuji’s first compact system camera (CSC), the Fuji X-Pro1, is a 16.3 million pixel X-Trans CMOS that produces images of up to 15.89MP. This means that when images are printed at 300ppi, they are just a small fraction short of full A3 size – ideal for most enthusiast photographers.

Although this sensor is APS-C sized, Fuji claims that its cunning design enables the X-Pro1 to produce images that are superior to those from a full frame DSLR like the Canon EOS 5D Mark II or Nikon D700.
