Fujifilm X-E1

16 May 2014
  • Conclusion: With the same "spectacular" image quality and "dazzling" rangefinder style as the Fujifilm X-Pro1 (Est. $1,000) , but in a smaller, less pricey package, the Fujifilm X-E1 impresses experts and owners. However, with sluggish autofocus and flawed video quality, it's not for everyone.
  • Pros: Splendid image quality, Compact body with great retro style, Packed with professional-grade features
  • Cons: Slower autofocus than rivals, Unimpressive video, Partially plastic body isn't weather-sealed

  • Cons: Lack of the last manual focus mode and focus peaking split-image, Shutter speed Auto ISO is not configurable, Noise tendon focal plane shutter, Battery indicator residual misleading.

  • Conclusion: It’s very nice to see choices and diversity of equipment grow in the still-photography market, rather than just contract. Fuji is, undoubtedly, one of the most creative players in this field, and their offerings are getting ever richer. Good times.

  • Summary: In late 2012, Fujifilm announced the X-E1 - which is essentially a 30% smaller version on their flagship X-Pro1 , with a few upgrades.
