Fujifilm X-A1 Digital Camera Review

Buy-n-Shoot.com
14 August 2014
  • Excerpt: Being a bit of a technophile its always exciting when you are opening the box on a new piece of hardware. This time around it is the Fujifilm X-A1 and it was a pleasant surprise indeed. The X-A1 appears to be the new entry point for the X series range of cameras that have a 16 Megapixel image sensor.

PC Magazine

  • Conclusion: The Fujifilm X-A1 is the least expensive X-series camera that Fuji sells; while it doesn't feature the company's unique X-Trans image sensor, it's still a solid performer.
  • Pros: Excellent image quality. 5.5fps shooting. Retro design. Sharp kit lens. Built-in flash. Tilting 921k-dot rear display. Built-in Wi-Fi.
  • Cons: No EVF option. Noticeable shutter lag. A bit slow to turn on. Lacks mic input. Noticeable rolling shutter in video.

Fujifilm X-A1 – Review

Review guidelines
20 January 2014
  • Summary: The Fujifilm X-A1 perfectly embodies the philosophy of the producer: essential photographic depth of control and quality of results. We are not in the presence of mirrorless smaller in circulation, or more technology or more key performance in the video, but the traditional photographers simply looking for an instrument quite compact and can capture excellent images hard-pressed to find a better alternative to X-A1 in this price segment.
  • Pros: Exceptional image quality, Fast AF and accurate, In-depth manual controls.
  • Cons: Physical construction for improvement, Limited video capabilities, The absence of Panorama and HDR mode.

Fujifilm X-A1 review: Compact entry-level interchangeable lens camera

Macworld
10 January 2014
  • Conclusion: If you’ve been seduced by the premium look and feel of previous Fujifilm X cameras but haven’t been able to justify the expense until now, the X-A1 is a great value-added place to start. Gavin is a Macworld U.K. contributor who has written about digital photography since 1997 and was editor of a slew of photographic titles including Which Digital Camera. There is little about the subject Gavin doesn't know.
  • Pros: Swift and accurate auto focus, Plenty of effects and Fuji’s Film Simulation modes, Tilting LCD
  • Cons: A larger handgrip would have been useful, Longer lenses make the camera front heavy, No eye level viewfinder built in

  • Conclusion: Fuji is to be congratulated for sticking to its X-series design principles for it's entry-level model. It would've been easy to compromise on build quality, but it hasn't. It has also managed to keep the same traditional look of its other models such as the Fuji X-E1 and Fuji X-Pro1 while making the X-A1 and (X-M1) more accessible to novice photographers.

Fuji X-A1 Hands-On

photographybay.com
7 November 2013
  • Excerpt: The Fuji X-A1 resides at the low end of the Fuji X-Series lineup of mirrorless cameras. The camera is so small and light. It feels much like a point and shoot camera in your hand when equipped with the Fuji XF 27mm f/2.8 pancake lens (40.5mm equivalent on a full frame camera).

2 November 2013
  • Summary: While the Fujifilm X-A1 is intended to be an entry-level model for Fujifilm's X-series cameras, it is an outstanding camera in its own right. If you can live without a viewfinder you'll discover what is arguably the best CSC in its price bracket.
