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

Imaging Resource
27 March 2013
  • 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...
  • 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 l...

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...

  • Cons: Indoor white balance could be better, Expensive lenses / price of kit, Kit lens could be wider, Exposure compensation dial easy to knock

Fujifilm X-E1

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

  • 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.

  • Cons: Une plage de focale limitée
