Fujifilm X-M1 Digital Camera Review

Buy-n-Shoot.com
11 August 2014
  • Excerpt: There is a certain feeling of nostalgia that this style of camera evokes, the distant memory of a camera sitting on my parents coffee table back in the late 70's and early 80's next to a couple of rolls of FujiColor.

DP Review

  • Summary: The X-M1 is Fujifilm's entry-level mirrorless camera with its unique X-Trans sensor. While it lacks the build quality and EVF of the more expensive X-E1, it adds a sharper, tilting LCD and Wi-Fi. The X-M1 is capable of taking incredibly sharp photos with very little noise.
  • Pros: Excellent image quality; top-notch JPEG engine reduces the need for Raw, Low noise until the very highest sensitivities, Solid build quality, despite composite construction, Sharp, tilting 3-inch LCD has wide viewing angle, Quick startup, shot-to-shot speeds, DR, highlight, and shadow tone tools ...
  • Cons: AF speeds a bit slower that mirrorless competition, Areas of fine green detail can be 'mushy', Awkwardly placed rear dial takes getting used-to, No electronic level, Camera cannot be controlled via Wi-Fi, Moiré, rolling shutter can be an issue in videos, Lacks HDR, panorama features, Can't access...

Fuji X-M1 review

TechRadar UK
26 September 2013
  • Summary: Fujifilm's smaller, more affordable X-series CSC
  • Pros: Tilting screen, Small size, Large APS-C sensor, Fuji has once again pulled a design classic out of the bag, producing something that manages to combine classic retro looks with everything you need for excellent picture taking as well as an extremely useful tilting screen.
  • Cons: Not a touchscreen, Limited digital filters, No viewfinder, The Fuji X-M1 has no viewfinder - and no optional extra - available, while the screen isn't touch sensitive. Other manufacturers offer these kind of things, without the high price tag.
