Fujifilm X-A1

PC Magazine
13 February 2014
  • 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.

  • Conclusion: Although the X-A1 has a small pop-up flash unit built-in (Guide Number 7 at ISO 100), there's a hotshoe for mounting an external flashgun for those times when more powerful illumination is required.
  • Pros: Most affordable Fuji CSC, Natural, vibrant images, Tilting LCD
  • Cons: No viewfinder, Screen not touch-sensitive, Standard sesnor

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).

What Digital Camera
29 October 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.
  • Pros: Style; Performance: Image quality; Features
  • Cons: Shiny monitor screen; Expensive system lenses
