The FUJIFILM X-Pro1 is an interchangeable lens Compact System Camera (CSC) that features a 16 megapixel APS-C X-Trans CMOS sensor, Fujinon X lens mount, a Hybrid Multi Viewfinder and two lenses: XF18mm and XF27mm.
Fujinon lenses have long been associated with delivering high quality images, with optics used for both broadcast TV and medium format cameras. Now the expertise borne out of this enviable optical heritage has been put into lenses for the FUJIFILM X-Pro1.

When attaching a FUJINON XF-series lens on the X-Pro1, both the viewfinder magnification and bright frame size automatically switches to support the lens focal length. Viewfinder magnification switches to 0.37x for the 18mm lens, and to 0.60x when the 35mm or 60mm lens is mounted, letting you compose your shot with the bright, crystal clarity of an optical image. The X-Pro1 also gives you the freedom to manually set a focal distance and switch between a variety of different viewfinder mag
The top and base are made from die-cast aluminium alloy which, combined with high quality touches like precise engraving and hand-enamelled lettering on the lenses, proves that the entire X-Pro1 system is built without compromise.This eye for detail extends to the shutter speed dial and exposure compensation control that is precision milled from solid metal. Details like the shutter speed dial lock mechanism and the recessed exposure compensation dial are designed to prevent accidental movement of settings.

FAQ: DSLR vs. CSC camera, Which one should I buy?
DSLRs use the same design as the traditional 35mm film cameras . A mirror inside the camera body reflects the light coming in through the lens up to a prism (or additional mirrors) and into the viewfinder for you to preview your shot. When you press the shutter button, the mirror flips up, a shutter opens and the light falls onto the image sensor, which captures the final image.
In a CSC camera, light passes through the lens and right onto the image sensor, which captures a preview of the image to display on the rear screen. Some models also offer a second screen inside an electronic viewfinder (EVF) that you can put your eye to.
Here are the comparison:
- Size & Weight : A CSC camera is much smaller than a DSLR, hence more attractive to young, novice, and female photographers
- Autofocus Speed: DSLRs used to have an advantage due to it quick phase detection technology. However many latest CSC models now also incorporate phase detection in addition to the contrast-detection AF, like the Fuji X-series…
- View Finder: DSLRs have a very small optical viewfinder but it shows you exactly what the camera will capture, while CSCs have live view on the big LCD, and some models also have EVF (electronic view finder)
- Image Stabilization: Blurry pictures due to shaky hands is a big problem especially for long zoom shots. Both DSLR and CSC cameras offer optical image-stabilization, and similar in performance: they can compensate a small amount of shaking to produce a sharper picture, but neither can compensate for larger movements.
- Image Quality: CSCs normally have smaller image sensors so they couldn’t capture as much light so poorer image quality especially in low light conditions. However many new CSC models like the Fuji X-series have the same APS-C sized sensors as the majority of DSLRs.
- Video Quality: Because of their on-chip focus sensors, higher-end CSC cameras (like the Fuji XT and XPro range) are generally better-suited to video shooting. DSLRs can’t use phase detection with the mirror up while recording video, so they have to use the slower, less accurate, contrast-detection focus method.
- Burst Speed: CSC cameras have no flapping mirror so normally faster to take image after image.
- Battery Life: DSLRs normally have longer battery life, as they can shoot without using the LCD screen or an electronic viewfinder. So it is a good idea for CSC users to carry a spare battery.
