We chat about the Fujifilm X-Pro1, the Nikon V1, and Olympus OM-D EM5.
The follow-on of the already popular X100, the X-Pro1 aims to rival the Leica M9 at a fraction of the price. The X-Pro1 features the APS-C sensor, shoots stills and video, and has some of the most legendary Fuji film rendering modes. The improved X-Trans CMOS sensor has a different repeating pattern compared to other competing APS-C sensors, that no longer needs a low-pass filter, that Fuji claims reduces moiré and gives a “film-like” quality. Sturdy design, feels confident in the hand, and a photographer’s tool. Visit Site.
This is a neat little interchangeable lens compact, meant for people who need to grab images quickly without fuss. It has a proprietary Nikon CX sensor larger than the usual compact, though much smaller than the micro 4/3 sensors. However, it is very easy to handle, shoots good stills and 1080 video. Visit Site.
Olympus OM-D EM5
This is reminiscent of the Olympus OM-4, one of the best SLRs a long while back. The new digital OM-D has much of the same compact design, and feels great in handling, autofocus, and low-light sensitivity. Micro 4/3 system, weather-sealed body and kit lens (12-50mm) for all-round travel, street, sports and night photography. Visit Site.
