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.
Summary: The Fuji X-M1 fits between the flagship X-E2 Fuji X-E2 and basic X-A1 Fuji X-A1 . It features Fuji's first-generation 16 megapixels X-Trans CMOS sensor and a second generation EXR II processor which captures full-resolution images at 5.6 FPS and 1080p HD video at 30 FPS.
Pros: Extremely low image noise until ISO 1600, Excellent retention of details, Great dynamic-range, Reliable metering, Nicely saturated colors, Very good automatic white-balance, Instant shutter-lag, High number of external controls, Good build quality
Cons: Autofocus speed is below average, Slow shot-to-shot speed with autofocus, Poor AWB accuracy, Not Exposure-Priority, EC dial moves easily, Delay up to 2s to start video recording, Short battery-life
Conclusion: Call us fans of new Fujifilm cameras such as the X-M1, especially those using variations of the X-Trans CMOS APS-C sensor. We really like the image quality – the photos are just plain good.
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...
Summary: The Fujifilm X-M1 is the third interchangeable lens camera in Fujifilm's X-Series, following the X-E1 and X-Pro1. While it inherits the same X-mount for lenses and 16 Megapixel X-Trans sensor, thereby delivering essentially the same quality, it marks a bit of a departure from the two previous models...
Pros: APS-C X-Trans sensor., Excellent high ISO noise performance., 920 million dot tilting LCD panel., Focus peaking (only for stills)., Built-in wifi.
Cons: No optional EVF., No touch screen., Poor movie AF., Poorly implemented geotagging., No effects or focus peaking for movies., No wifi remote control.
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.
