Fujifilm X-S1

Steve's Digicams
13 November 2012
  • Excerpt: For 2012, FujiFilm has really brought out the 'big guns', as can be seen with the new X-S1. This model is a cross between their popular HS series of high-end super-zooms, and their newer X series of high-end dSLR-like cameras like the X100 and X10 . The X-S1 brings a lot to the table, with exposure options to suit the needs of just about any level of photographer. From EXR Auto to full manual, the X-S1 has you covered.

  • Conclusion: The Fujifilm X-S1 is as big and as expensive as an SLR, but packs an amazing 26x zoom lens and excels at low-light shooting.
  • Pros: 26x manual zoom lens. Excellent control layout. Sharp EVF. Hot shoe. Raw shooting support.
  • Cons: Expensive. Very large. Slow to start up. Slightly soft images.

The Fujifilm X-S1 is a high-end bridge camera aimed at the gap between superzooms and DSLRs.

9 March 2012
  • Conclusion: Once upon a time, superzooms were built to bridge the gap between pocket shooters and DSLRs, as a happy medium in terms of price, performance, and target audience. That's still the point to a certain degree, but changes in the industry have blurred that gap considerably. Entry-level DSLRs are as cheap as some premium superzooms. The advent of mirrorless compact system cameras altered notions about size, price, and image quality.

Fujifilm X-S1 Digital Camera Review

Buy-n-Shoot.com
1 March 2012
  • Conclusion: It really excites me to see that traditional camera bodies are coming back into the marketplace and at affordable prices. Whilst the  X Pro 1 is more expensive than other options it is certainly not overpriced when you consider the sensor, image quality and the ability to choose from a range of sharp lenses soon to be expanded.

Fujifilm X-S1 review

What Digital Camera
22 February 2012
  • Summary: The X-S1 is an impressive superzoom, though it's not quite the perfect machine. It's a recommended piece of kit as there's nothing else like it out there, and it gives the superzoom market the kick it needs. But then at £700 it is expensive, the overall autofocus performance won't rival a similar-price DSLR, and the sensor can fall into difficulties when confronted with direct light sources that can generate hard-edged, circular highlights.

  • Conclusion: As with any superzoom, it really is about whether you need that whopper of a lens on the front. If you do, then the Fuji X-S1 is presently about the best big zoom bridge camera that's out there.

Fujifilm X-S1 – the semi-professional camera that will not make you want a real DSLR

Gadgetmania
13 December 2011
  • Conclusion: All of that versatility means that you can go a pretty long way without feeling the need for a new lens, which is the main reason people who bought a semi-professional camera switch to DSLRs early on – when you can do all that, you don’t need a dSLR, and that’s exactly what Fujifilm is marketing the X-S1 for.

Fujifilm X-S1 review

Amateur Photographer
3 April 2014
  • Summary: While a handful of people predicted that the emergence of compact system cameras would signal the death of bridge models, compact system cameras have also presented bridge camera manufacturers with a new opportunity. Manufacturers seem to be freeing themselves of the constraints of what have now become traditional sensor sizes, and can now to produce new products with sensor sizes that didn't exist a few years ago.
