Matt Hart – Whitby Pier

Technical details Camera: X-Pro1 Lens: XF 18mm F2 R Exposure: 1/40sec at F11, ISO 200

Camera: X-Pro1- Lens: XF 18mm F2 R
Exposure: 1/40sec at F11, ISO 200

“Whitby in north east England is a timeless place. So far, it has been left untouched by developers so it is largely unspoilt and has real charm. I think it’s a place you can walk around all day and all night with a camera in a very relaxing environment.”

“The image was taken one evening using my X-Pro1 hand held – I just love its ease of use and the stunning sensor. I have just sold all my Nikon equipment because of this camera – people think I am mad going from a D3s to the X-Pro1, but I fell in love with the X100 and once I had used the X-Pro1 for a few days I was completely hooked.”

Rex Adams – Birling Gap

Technical details Camera: X-Pro1 Lens: XF18mm F2 R and 10 stop ND filter Exposure: 8.5secs at F16, ISO 200

Camera: X-Pro1 – Lens: XF18mm F2 R and 10 stop ND filter
Exposure: 8.5secs at F16, ISO 200

“I love black & white photography as I feel the results are less cluttered than in colour. A black & white photograph draws your attention to the subject without the distraction of colours which may or may not be an intentional part of the image.”

“I took this image with the X-Pro1, which I chose as I wanted a camera to carry around without having to lug a heavy DSLR. The X-Pro1 is the most versatile camera I have used, and the images produced are as good if not better than my Canon DSLR.”

“Personally, I am excited with the direction Fujifilm is going at the moment and am particularly interested in the Fujifilm X-E2 which may end up in my bag before too long! I like the way Fujifilm listens to users’ suggestions, and many of these have been incorporated into firmware updates. This demonstrates that it’s a forward-thinking company that puts its customers first.”

Gerald Robinson – Dead Calm

Technical details Camera: X-Pro1 Lens: XF18-55mm Exposure: 4 seconds at F22, ISO 100

Camera: X-Pro1 – Lens: XF18-55mm
Exposure: 4 seconds at F22, ISO 100

“I was after a sunrise, but it wasn’t going to happen so I decided to shoot an alternative image using a long exposure. I don’t usually shoot landscapes in black & white, but in this situation it wouldn’t have worked in colour.”

“I used my X-Pro1, but I also shoot with an X10 and X20 as they are ideal pocket cameras for any occasion. I recently changed all my gear from the Nikon DSLRs with a selection of lenses to the Fujifilm X-series and various lenses, and for me it was the right move. I just love the full manual control the X-Pro1 gives me.”
