Mastering the Fujifilm X-E1 and X-Pro1
Santa Barbara, CA – September 24, 2013 – Mastering the Fujifilm X-E1 and X-Pro1 provides a wealth of experienced-based information and insights for owners of Fuji’s mirrorless X-E1 and X-Pro1 system cameras. Far surpassing the owner’s manual, readers will learn about the features and capabilities of these cameras and will discover numerous tips and tricks for how to maximize their potential. The book also covers lenses and key accessories, as well as various post-processing options.
With the X-E1 and X-Pro1, Fujifilm released two affordable mirrorless system cameras with APS-C sensors that rival modern full-frame cameras. The successful combination of high-end retro design and state-of-the-art digital camera technology, originally seen in the X100 viewfinder camera, has now been pushed to the limit. The systems offer a number of FUJINON interchangeable zoom and prime lenses, and several more have been announced.
In a layout suitable to the camera’s attractive design, this manual presents imagery that attests to the fun you will have as you begin to push the envelope of your Fujifilm X-E1 or X-Pro1.
