Excellent image quality, but slow AF

Brian, Amazon
8 November 2014
  • Summary: I have been a Canon (5DMKII) user for many years. I liked the idea of the X-Trans sensor and the retro rangefinder styling of this camera and have been looking for a smaller camera with great image quality. This camera feels well built and Fujifilm paid a lot of attention to detail. I love the manual controls of this camera. You feel more connected to the camera. The image quality of this camera is fantastic. The weight and size make it ideal for traveling.

Leica Performance (almost) at a Discount

Ricardo, Amazon
20 September 2014
  • Summary: As a former Leica shooter (I moved to Nikon when I decided to go digital and the Leica M offering was a horror), I can't say enough good things about the X-E1. Since purchasing it last year, my Nikon gear gets less and less use. High ISO performance for an APS-C sensor camera is nothing short of amazing. I can now shoot at ISO 1600 (when needed) and not have to deal with gobs of "noise". My Nikon D300 gets pretty noisy by ISO 800.

Great Camer

Austin H., B&H Photo
23 August 2014
  • Excerpt: I really like the retro look and lightweight feel. It's really fun to shoot manually but putting it back into auto is a little slow. I shoot at least 300 pictures raw without any battery loss.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Battery Life, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
  • Cons: Lag / Shutter Delay

Perfect camera for JPEG shooters, a little more demanding for RAW.

A. C. Yelmo, Amazon
22 August 2014
  • Summary: It is a nice camera, but the poor third party RAW support does not allow to get the best from it. AF speed is not as bad as I would have expected with the latest firmware updates. Mine had a hot pixel that becomes very apparent in the live-view and the EVF in low light situations. The paint on the aperture ring is wearing out a little bit, but I'm fine with that, as it does not affect performance or image quality. The lens is superb, way better than any lens kit around.

What a great photo tool

JEStanek, B&H Photo
13 August 2014
  • Excerpt: I got this to supplement my DSLR and have a good image quality, well designed, cool lighter/smaller camera for travelling. I found the battery life better than expected if you turn off the back display if you're going to be shooting for a while. It won't be my first choice for fast action shots but if you will be composing before you shoot, this camera is fantastic. It really performs in low light well, too. Finally, it looks really cool.
  • Pros: Fast Shutter Speed, Good Battery Life, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
  • Cons: Lag / Shutter Delay

Just what I was looking for

Holly, B&H Photo
6 August 2014
  • Excerpt: I bought this camera looking for a lighter alternative to my Canon DSLR for hiking, backpacking and general travel photography. We did a week+ trip to the Rocky Mountains, and I put it through all the paces camping and backpacking. I've also used it for some portraiture work and flower photography. My overall impression: Love it!
  • Pros: Fast Shutter Speed, Good Battery Life, Good Firmware Upgrades, Great Lenses From Fuji, Great Resolution, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
  • Cons: Focusing Can Be Slow

great addt add on, but a bit pricey!

  • Excerpt: Adds necessary grip to the smallish Fuji. All metal construction and of course fits perfectly. Only bad design is lack of access to battery and sd card. And about $20 too high in my opinion.
  • Pros: Added Grip, Quality construction
  • Cons: No Battery Accesa, Price
