Fujifilm's X-E1 delivers great photos for manual-focused photographers

CNET
8 June 2013
  • Summary: It's not a general-purpose recommendable camera thanks to subpar video and slightly sluggish performance, but for photo-quality-first photographers who want the analog-ish shooting experience, the Fujifilm X-E1 rules in its price range.
  • Cons: While not bad, performance lags in its class, and the video quality disappoints.

Fujifilm X-E1

Steve's Digicams
8 April 2013
  • Excerpt: In late 2012, Fujifilm announced the X-E1 - which is essentially a 30% smaller version on their flagship X-Pro1 , with a few upgrades. Meaning, the camera boasts the same 16.3-megapixel APS-C X-Trans CMOS sensor, an EXR Processor Pro, full HD 1080p video recording, an ISO range of 100-25600, a Q Menu shortcut button, and lots of great features like in-camera RAW conversion, various Film Simulation Modes, Multiple Exposure Mode, and Panoramic Shooting Mode.

Fujifilm X-E1 Review

  • Summary: The X-E1 is one hell of a camera, leaving a few quirks aside. It is a mirrorless that can actually function as a substitute to the bulky DSLR for many users. If you're in the market for a DSLR, or want a camera system that will give you great images, then you might want to look at getting the X-E1.
  • Pros: Compact body compared to a DSLR, Excellent image quality even at high ISO, Well-placed dials that make accessing settings really quick
  • Cons: AF is a hit or miss at times, Lack of any sort of controls in video recording mode

  • Conclusion: The Fuji X-E1 may be the baby brother to Fuji's flagship X-Pro1, but in many ways is its equal. Most importantly, the two cameras share the same impressive 16.3-megapixel APS-C X-Trans CMOS sensor, which produces image quality superior to most APS-C-sensor-based digital SLRs, but in arguably more attractive camera body designs. The X-E1 is also significantly less expensive than its older sibling, while boasting many of the same features.
  • Pros: Significantly less expensive than Fuji's flagship CSC, but with many of the same features, Really excellent image quality overall, JPEGs are very clean, with very conservative sharpening. (Who needs RAWs?), Lots of resolution and detail from 16.3MP APS-C X-Trans CMOS sensor thanks to absence of low-pass filter, Very low incidence of moiré despite having no low-pass filter, Excellent low-light/high ISO shooting capability; crisp photos up to ISO 6,400, Very good dynami...

Fujifilm X-E1

Camera Labs
1 March 2013
  • Summary: The Fujifilm X-E1 is the second of the company's mirrorless compact system cameras to use the X-mount and the 16 Megapixel X-Trans CMOS sensor debuted in the groundbreaking X-Pro 1. It's smaller and less expensive than the X-Pro 1 but lacks one of its key selling points - the hybid optical / electronic viewfinder.
  • Pros: Excellent image quality., Superb high ISO noise performance., Big, bright, high resolution EVF., Built-in flash., External mic/remote socket., 6fps continuous shooting.
  • Cons: EVF prone to extraneous light., No direct movie record button., Limited movie modes., AF perfomance still so-so., No gadgets like built-in Wifi or GPS.

  • Conclusion: With the X-E1, Fuji has brought the next evolution of the X series of interchangeable lens cameras. As the system is set to grow in the coming year, we can see this camera appealing to a large group of people.

Fujifilm FinePix X-E1 Review

4 January 2013
  • Summary: When Fujifilm released the X-E1 it’s clear that the company has one thing in mind, and that is to polish some of the rough edges that critics pointed out on the X-Pro1. Well, they didn’t have to do much as the X-Pro1 is already regarded by many as one of the sleekest MILC in the market.

Fujifilm X-E1 review

What Digital Camera
26 November 2012
  • Summary: While it may appear to be simply a stripped down, more affordable X-Pro1 to tempt more people into Fujifilm's CSC family, that would be doing the X-E1 a great disservice. Similar in size to the X100, and combined with a similar premium finish that won over so many fans to Fujifilm's retro-inspired compact, the X-E1 manages to feel more refined and balanced as soon as you pick it up compared to the rather chunky X-Pro1.
