Inspired by the recent article by Hamish regarding the Sony A7Rii, I wanted to share my way of working with my favorite digital camera, the Fuji X-Pro. A lot of people, myself included, seem to be struggling with getting that rangefinder experience in the digital world. Sure, there was the Epson RD-1, which I never had the chance to try, and there are digital Leicas, which I never had enough money at the side to be able to even think about seriously. Some people say just stay with film. I stayed with film, but in addition to that I somehow made the X-Pro work for me over the years, and it gives me that rangefinder feeling that I love so much with the benefits of the digital workflow.

Bear in mind, this is not going to be a technical review as many others are so much better in them as I am. This will be highly subjective and it will be about how I use the camera, how I transitioned from a Leica M6 to the Fuji X-Pro (1 and then 2) and now use both cameras side by side. As X-Pro1’s are available at a very very low price at the moment I hope that I am able to inspire a few people who can’t or don’t want to afford digital Leicas to be able to give their M-mount lenses a digital life.

The pictures included in this posting have been shot with the Leica M6/M7, X-Pro1 and X-Pro2….
