Santa Barbara, CA—January 8, 2013—Mastering the Fujifilm X-Pro 1 (Rocky Nook, $29.95 USD) provides a wealth of experienced-based information and insights for owners of the new X-Pro 1 camera. Readers will learn about the features and capabilities of the X-Pro 1 and will discover numerous tips and tricks for how to maximize its potential.

With the X-Pro 1, Fujifilm released the first mirrorless camera with an APS-C sensor. The successful combination of high-end retro design and state-of-the-art digital camera technology, originally seen in the X100 viewfinder camera, has been pushed even further to achieve this interchangeable-lens camera.

Author Rico Pfirstinger explores the ins and outs of the X-Pro 1 as he covers topics such as the camera controls and menu system, the hybrid viewfinder and monitor, exposure, metering, focusing, flash photography, and more. Also included is information about third-party lenses, system flash units, and practical accessories.

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-Pro 1.
