The high ISO images of the Fuji X-Pro 1 is pretty intense. Max ISO at 25,600 produces really good images, comparable to ISO 1600 of DSLRs 3 years ago. It’s really stunning.

So what do you think of the Fuji X-Pro 1 mirrorless interchangeable camera? It’s a pricey piece of equipment but it was never meant to be a mass-market, use-it-for-work type of camera in the first place. It’s the first real competitor of the Leica in terms of looks and features, though the Leica, of course, is still in a class of it’s own.
