whatever I got for the x100, the XPRO1 can take over.

If I may say so.

32MB SD Card is huge. It is not a 36MP D800 behemoth. 2 x 16GB is more practical and safer. 4 x 4GB even more so.

I got a Cam-n Soft release which is less than USD10.

Bags: the Lowepro Messenger is a great practical bag that don't shout 'expensive camera in it'.

I got Tianya filters for less than USD5 a pop.

Cable release: Less that USD5 in Hong Kong and it was 1 meter long (or a foot and a half)

got myself the small red concave beep boop soft release button, a phat strap and a 64G class 10 card. I know it's huge but I plan spending weeks away from a computer, I need room for that ;-)

I plan on getting the extra grip and the thumb up when I'll have the camera, as of now, it'll be enough already!

Still thinking, but as for tripod - Gorillapod from www.joby.com - definitely, because they are compact and extremely stable, relatively cheap for their great qualities.

As for big tripod (that'll be later for me ;/) - I think I would choose Oben tripod

The XP1 grip is on its way to me, I'll report once I had time to try it out.

I doubt whether super fast cards are going to be beneficial for X-Pro1s. They are not sports action cameras.

I find them very beneficial.

I got mine for $60. For that price why not?

If the price is right no problems but I wouldn't pay extra for a fast card for the camera.

I can currently get a 16 GB SanDisk 95 MB/s SD card for 46 EUR including 19% sales tax and free shipping. The prices definitely come down by the month.

I read this person's entry and I was convinsed to get the fastest card available:

http://app.m-cocolog.jp/t/typecast/14297/16240/71734572

(It's in Japanese though)

In summary, he found that it's a necessary upgrade if you see yourself using a lot of bracketing feature or burst mode.

He compared it with Transcend class 10 and the SanDisk extreme pro 95mb/s.

Using one of the bracketing modes, he says it took about 5 secs for Transcend to finish saving and about 3 seconds for SanDisk.

In burst mode, both took 13 shots (techniqually 26) in RAW + JPEG, it took 45 seconds for Transcend and 20 seconds for SanDisk to finish recording.

So the difference was very clear.

I could also add it will probably help upload your pictures faster.

I see myself probably using film or exposure bracketing, so fast cards would benefit me.

IMHO, if you want maximum performance from this camera, I wouldn't cheap out on memory card speed.

I like this idea so much, but will it be X-Pro1 compatible?
