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 Review

2 April 2013
  • 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

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: The Fujifilm X-E1 is a solid mirrorless camera with an innovative image sensor, but it doesn't quite have the chops to unseat the Olympus OM-D E-M5 as our Editors' Choice.
  • Pros: Excellent high ISO images. 4.6fps shooting. Sharp kit lens. OLED EVF. Top-notch control layout. Built-in flash. Cool retro design.
  • Cons: Fixed rear LCD. Noticeable shutter lag. Video support is limited to 24p.

DP Review
8 September 2012
  • Summary: The Fujifilm X-E1 is a fine camera, and a pleasure to use. Fujifilm's recent improvements to focusing, both manual and automatic, make a real difference to performance, the built-in EVF is excellent, and the enthusiast-friendly ergonomics are addictive. The only serious issue is the camera's video mode, which is sub-par compared to the competition.
  • Pros: Unique camera design makes you want to take pictures, Excellent JPEGs, little need to shoot raw most of the time, Reliable metering and AWB systems, good color (with choice of 'film modes'), Dials for exposure controls allow for easy check of settings by glancing at the top deck, particularly with prime lenses, Impressive image quality at all ISO settings - good resolution and low noise, Built-in flash is handy for fill lighting in a pinch, Film-simulations offer quic...
  • Cons: Built-in level isn't always as accurate as we'd like, Relatively slow AF makes photographing children more difficult, Framerates in continuous shooting mode aren't completely consistent, Camera disables RAW shooting without warning in some bracketing modes, Relatively low-resolution rear LCD compared to some peers, Panorama mode can result in visible banding in plain tones, Auto ISO often chooses too slow a shutter speed (specifically problematic with the longer prime...

Fujifilm X-E1 review

Amateur Photographer
3 April 2014
  • Summary: Currently, the X-E1 costs £450 less than the street price of the X-Pro1, and is available with the superb 18-55mm lens (priced separately at £600) for the same price as the body-only X-Pro1. Considering the similarities between the two, the X-E1 is a good-value option. Key differences are the LCD screen and viewfinder. The EVF of the X-E1 is better than that of the X-Pro1 with improved contrast, but again it freezes during autofocus.
