"For your money you get some of the most impressive quality photographs that any amount of money can buy as well as some cutting edge sense technology. It's certainly no mean feat for a camera like this to comfortably hold its hear up high against the resolving power of the DSLR."
"The traditional dial-based control layout makes it a very engaging camera to use, and the clever hybrid optical-electronic viewfinder gives an immersive view of the world while providing as much or little exposure information as you like.
Perhaps most importantly, the X-Trans CMOS sensor gives truly excellent image quality, particularly in combination with the stellar XF 35mm F1.4 R lens."Click to read the full article
Best Compact System Camera Professional Award - FUJIFILM X-Pro1
"The camera maintains the commitment of the company to the exciting and highly functional Hybrid Multi Viewfinder that allows a choice between an electronic or optical view. In addition, the X-Pro1 features a revolutionary new sensor pattern, dubbed X-Trans CMOS sensor, which is based on the irregular matrix of silver film. The high resolution 16.3 MP on a 23.6 x 15.6mm sensor means images of very high quality can be achieved, reinforced by an engineering design that pays special attention to the compatibility between the sensor and accompanying lenses.

"At the moment in my opinion, X-Pro1 would be a perfect 2nd camera for a wedding photographer, or someone who shoots street photography or images that need a little more preparation."www.myfinepix.co.uk/reviews/fujifilm-x-pro1/311/552933
"The X-Pro1 lets you revel in the very essence of photography, and it encourages you to spend more time thinking about your shot before you take it. That's not to say it's ponderous or that it's not up to the task of shooting more flighty subjects, like children and pets -- it can manage these just fine. But if you consider photography an 'art', then this is the most inspirational digital paintbrush you can buy right now."Click here to read the full review
"What the Fuji X-Pro1 does offer, as well as an enticing alternative to anyone who has ever lusted after a Leica camera before. It's an opportunity to leave that bulky enthusiast digital SLR at home and still be able to achieve impressive image quality."Click here to read the full review

"The Fujifilm X-Pro1 is an enthusiast level compact system camera that produces class-leading image quality and a really satisfying user experience thanks to its manually operated shutter speed dial and lens-based aperture controls. Those looking for something to shoot fast-moving action with might want to look elsewhere, but for image quality purists, 35mm SLR film veterans and anyone looking for a camera that's as rewarding to use as it it is capable of should give the X-Pro1 serious consideration."Click here to read the full review
"the X Pro 1's was the real star living up to Fuji's claims that images are as good, if not better in some cases than those captured by a full frame sensor."Read the full X-Pro1 review on Tech Radar
"The X-Pro1 is certainly right up there with the best APS-C sensor cameras on the market, and some full-frame models too. It's great to see another manufacturer join the compact system camera revolution and bring something truly innovative to the party, so if the Fujifilm X-Pro1 suits your way of shooting and your budget, we have no hesitation at all in highly recommending it."Read PhotographyBlog's full X-Pro1 review here
90% Gold Award
"The Fujifilm X-Pro1 is a staggering camera.
The camera's images are exceptional, delivering on the claims that it can match up to existing full-frame sensor's abilities (in many, though not all respects). The hybrid multi viewfinder is also a joy to use and a real unique feature to Fujifilm - though adjusting for the parallax and 90% field of view EVF crop marks can take a little getting used to.

4.5 Stars Highly Recommended
"The Fujifilm X-Pro1 is a fantastic camera, in every area it produces the results expected from a premium quality camera. The image quality is stunning, with excellent, and I really mean excellent pixel level detail, with excellent colour reproduction, great dynamic range, excellent high ISO noise results and excellent JPEG output straight from the camera.
