Summary: The most disappointed thing about this camera is EXR processor. It is not that it is bad. It is just, that if you have owned previously Fuji made camera such as Fuji X10 and expect XM1 to behave the same way-it won't. Let me explain you why. Both cameras have a DR (dynamic range) of 100% to 400%. But it seems that at least in XM1 this feature isn't that pronounced.
Summary: The reason I bought a camera is for family photos and trips. I didn't want to use my phone for all of these pictures and regret the bad quality of pictures in the far future. I almost got a point a shoot but a really good one was barely cheaper than the X-M1 with both lenses included. And by getting the X-M1 with both lenses I can zoom in for whatever kids may be doing. I know there are good zoom point and shoots also. I think I did well.
Summary: I am not into photography but when going on vacations or outings with the family i still want to have good pictures. This camera shoots very good pictures and is lighter to bring around compared to the big Dslr. The only lacking is a view finder.
Summary: This camera has been a great purchase for me. I love the retro look, the quality of pictures and the fact that it has wifi. I still haven't navigated through the whole camera, as I am a novice with photography, but have enjoyed the different modes that I have explored. The wifi took me a while to figure out, but after I did, it was a breeze to use and very convenient for me. I really love it.
Compact camera reaches out excellent image quality,good price.

Summary: 1-What I like: -Excellent JPEG image quality. -Good price. -Small and light body. -16MP X-Trans Cmos APSC sensor,no low-pass filter. 2-What I don't: This is a black body,I prefer a dual tone silver body.
Summary: I have had this camera since late feb now and have loved the usability and features this little guy has. I ended up purchasing the hand grip which is nice to have for one handed shots. I also invested in the 27mm prime which is worth the money. I havent done too much editing or printed any shot yet but im sure they will be crisp. the only grip i have is that after 1500 or so shots the XC kit lens is showing its cheapness.
Summary: Was never into fuji but one of friends was like "you should check out the new mirror-less cameras fuji came out with" so i did. Instantly liked the retro look of the xm1 and the price tag, did a little research and decided to give it a try. Delivers great images, i did prints of 24x36" and they look amazing. I love the tilt screen it just makes taking pics so much easier, i would say very well worth the money.
Summary: The X-M1 is compact, lightweight and produces very nice color in the JPEGs. The kit 16-50mm kit lens and body are solidly built with no wobbly parts. It has a plastic mount and outer coverings. Supplied lens hood works well. This is Fuji's attempt at capturing the mass market sales and deviates from the more expensive models such as the X-E2 which has more direct control buttons.
A very nice small camera that makes excellent images

Summary: I bought one of these as a backup body for my X-T1. Having the same sensor as the other X bodies, the images are outstanding. The XC 16-50 kit lens is also much better than I expected. It has some quirks though, especially confusing when you have an XF lens mounted with an aperture ring and an Auto switch on the lens. I bought a second one from a friend and it worked fine but had a very noisy shutter, even squeaky when the shutter closed.
