Fuji recently released firmware v2.0 update for the X-Pro 1 and I’m very glad they did because it gave me enough confidence to use the camera at a wedding I photographed at the weekend. Prior to the v2.0 update, I was a bit hesitant to use it at an event such as a wedding where many of the moments I aim to capture (usually candidly) last only a few seconds. With wedding venues often being dimly lit, the main concerns for me revolved around focusing, namely:
- The speed of focusing in low light.
- The inability to use manual focusing due to the process of turning the focus ring feeling very detached from the lens focusing movement.
- The EVF freeze-framing during auto-focusing.
