New Fuji X PRO 1 ISO samples (+ Adorama notification and crazy belgium price)

The french website Focus Numerique (Click here) posted his first short X PRO 1 ISO test. Keep in mind that they used a pre-production camera with non finalized firmware. The conclusion from the reviewer is that up to ISO 1.600 noise is almost invisible. At 3.200 ISO grain is very fine and there is a just a little color noise. A larger chromatic noise is only visible starting from 12.800 ISO. Focus Numerique writes that they are truly impressed by that result!

A couple of days ago another french website Zone Numérique (Click here) said the price for the Fuji X PRO 1 body would be 1590 Euro. Now a Belgium store (Click here) is causing me a light heart attack by taking preorders at 1850 Euro! Hope this is not the real final price! Other preorder options are actually asking you for ZERO money while waiting for the final price info: Expansys USA (Click here), Expansys Canada (Click here), Henrys Canada (Click here) .

And after Amazon US (Click here) and BHphoto (Click here) als Adorama (Click here) is offering a pure notification service.

Fuji X PRO 1 news roundup (X100 ALL black preorders and price drops)

That nice ALL BLACK Fuji X100 is now available for preorder at Adorama (Click here). I am wondering how many will buy that camera when you know that you can get the FUji X PRO 1 body for the same price! Maybe more tempting is the classic Silver Fuji X100 which price keeps droppign week by week at Amazon (Click here).  -> via NoisyC.
X PRO 1 news roundup (via Fujirumors).
Cameralabs (Click here) X PRO 1 preview: “The Fujifilm X-Pro1 takes mirror-less ILCs to a higher ground than any company other than Leica has done to date. It unashamedly targets enthusiasts with an innovative sensor and viewfinder packed into a retro-styled body with nostalgic analogue controls and a choice of three high quality prime lenses at launch.”
Brian Lam from TheAtlantic (Click here) CES report: “This is the only gadget at the show that melts my heart every time I think about it. I want this more than anything else I’ve seen at the show, and I think I might get one over the also amazing Sony NEX-7 Camera, which is technically astounding but has a mediocre lens selection that is not worthy of a $1300 camera.
Detailed report at Photorumors (Click here) and hands-on pics at Alinpopescu (Click here).
The X PRO 1 already won four prices! The CNET “Best of CES 2012” Best Camera; Popular Science “CES 2012 Product of the Future”; Popular Mechanics “CES 2012 Editor’s Choice Award”; Tom’s Guide “Best of CES 2012” (Source: Imaging Resource).

Now I am really confused! The very first worldwide Fuji X PRO 1 preorders are now available at Expansys USA (Click here), Expansys Canada (Click here) and Expansys UK (Click here to see the preorder page). And actually the price is a huge surprise! Camera+35mm lens are priced at…$1,384.99 dollars or 1,079.99 pounds only! I hope they will not charge you some extra $ after a few weeks!

Black Friday deals: Fuji X100, Nikon 1 discounts.

Many reviewers argued that the new Nikon 1 cameras are too expensive. Good to hear that at least our US readers can enjoy a $50 discount on all Nikon 1 cameras! Check the list here at Amazon (Click here). And to learn more about the cameras read the two latest reviews:
Nikon 1 review at Neocamera (Click here): “Nikon really pushed things here, giving the V1 the smoothest and most seamless integration between stills and video on any digital camera to date. The V1 is always ready to shoot both images and video with an imperceptible lag and always previews the correct framing for both.
1 Nikkor 10mm f/2.8 – Review at Photozone (Click here): “Thus, ompared to the default kit zoom lens, the 1 Nikkor VR 10-30mm, the small pancake lens offers slightly superior performance, but in a much smaller and in addition more robust package. Unlike the zoom, however, the prime does not feature optical stabilization.

Also the price of the Fuji X100 is getting lower and lower. It’s now in Stock fo $1153 at Amazon (Click here). The camera just won the Design Award (Photographyblog)…again!
