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. Performance is very good, although AF speeds are not as quick as the best-in-class mirrorless cameras.The camera is missing a few other handy features too, like an electronic level and remote control...
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 brighten shadows and restore highlights, Handy focus peaking feature, Numerous bracketing modes, In-camera Raw processing, Good quality kit lens, Wi-Fi allows easy photo sharing
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 memory card when using tripod
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 which were aimed at the professional and enthusiast markets.
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: With the success of Fuji's X-Pro1 and X-E1, the X-M1 was always likely to be the next logical step for the company. It has all the classic looks and stylish design we have come to expect from the X series, and includes the same excellent sensor as used in these two more advanced models, which means that the image quality and colour rendition of the X-M1 are just as good. However, there is a catch.
Excerpt: Announced towards the end of June 2013, the Fujifilm X-M1 is the third model in the company's Compact System Camera (CSC) line-up and targeted more towards snapshooters. Featuring the same 16.3 megapixel X-Trans CMOS sensor as the X-Pro1 and X-E1 but a new EXR Processor Pro image processor, it's a little smaller and lighter than previous models and includes integrated Wi-Fi, just like Fujifilm's compact cameras.
