Fujifilm X-E1 Review

Review guidelines
25 August 2013
  • Summary: I immediately appreciated the Fujifilm X-E1 , since in practice the “cousin” with interchangeable lenses. But it is undeniable that this new system is a really good party: good and excellent optical sensors.
  • Pros: Vintage aesthetic, Ergonomics, Flash easily integrated directional upward, Image quality.
  • 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.

Fujifilm X-E1 Review

What Digital Camera
23 November 2012
  • Summary: With an asking price of £1149 with the rather lovely 18-55mm f/2.8-4 lens, it goes right up against the similarly retro-inspired 16MP Olympus OM-D, which comes in at the same price with the slightly broader 12-50mm, though with a variable maximum aperture of f/3.5-6.3.
  • Pros: Stunning image quality, premium finish and design, excellent EVF, no-nonsense handling
  • Cons: AF performance could still be better, rear screen not up to rivals standard

28 September 2012
  • Summary: The Fuji X-E1 follows the X-Pro1 with the same 16 MP CMOS sensor that delivers class-leading image quality thanks to its unique X-Trans sensor which does not use an anti-alias filter. The X-E1 is an excellent successor to the X-Pro1.
  • Pros: Class-leading image quality, Extremely low image noise up to ISO 6400, Excellent sharpness, Great color accuracy, Above average metering system, Good white-balance, Superb EVF, Plenty of direct controls, Instant video response, Excellent build quality
  • Cons: Very slow autofocus in low-light, Sluggish autofocus in good light, Slow shot-to-shot speed, Not Exposure-Priority, Fractional shutter-speeds get reset, Only one Fn button, No AE-L in MF mode, Soft aperture detents, Short battery-life

Fuji X-E1 review

TechRadar UK
31 January 2013
  • Summary: A smaller and sleeker Fuji X-Pro1... what's not to like?
  • Pros: Improved autofocus, Retro design, Lots of dials, Fantastic EVF, The improved autofocus speeds that Fuji's new firmware brings, coupled with the 18-55mm kit lens, make this a fantastic camera to easily take on its DSLR rivals.
  • Cons: Not a touchscreen, Can't shoot raw in all situations, Hidden video mode, There's not many things to dislike about the camera, with just a few small niggles keeping it from perfection. It would be nice to have seen a touchscreen, while the autofocus speed when using other lenses could do with bein...

ePHOTOzine
23 November 2012
  • Excerpt: was launched earlier this year. The X-E1 is a more compact model, with an electronic viewfinder instead of the optical/electronic hybrid in the X-Pro1, and sees the introduction of a new 18-55mm lens with optical image stabilisation.
  • Pros: Brighter than normal kit lens (f2.8 - f/4), Impressive noise performance up to ISO6400, Impressive colour reproduction, Great build quality and handling, Film simulation modes, High resolution EVF, Good panoramics
  • Cons: Indoor white balance could be better, Expensive lenses / price of kit, Kit lens could be wider, Exposure compensation dial easy to knock

Pocket Lint
16 November 2012
  • Conclusion: The Fujifilm X-E1 is a modern-day classic, but not in the mainstream sense. It's like a cult movie - it will perfectly fit the niche for some, why others will think it's mad. On the one hand this retro-styled, medium-sized compact system camera is expensive (£1,149 expensive) and lacks the kind of...
  • Pros: Image quality is excellent, build quality is superb, retro style works a treat, high resolution electronic viewfinder, 18-55mm lens has bright aperture range and is well built
  • Cons: Autofocus not as swift as competition, close focus limitations, exposure comp dial can be knocked easily, 18-55mm lens positions rotational rings close together, small LCD screen, so-so battery life

  • Summary: Smaller, lighter and significantly cheaper than the X-Pro1, whilst offering the same outstanding and image quality and impeccable handling, there's certainly an awful lot to like about the new Fujifilm X-E1.

  • Excerpt: Retrouvez notre avis et les meileurs prix pour le Fujifilm X-E1 Avec sa série X, Fuji a joué la carte de l'alternative au reflex : en ce sens il lui fallait un zoom transstandard afin de séduire ceux qui pouvaient l'être par l'idée de la polyvalent et/ou du tout en un.
