Fujifilm FinePix X-S1

EvoGadget
13 December 2015
  • Summary: The Fujifilm Finepix X-S1 bridge camera comes with some impressive features that most surely will get your attention. Of course, it has its competitors, like the Canon Powershot SX40 that has a 35x optical zoom and not very good battery life, but that doesn’t mean you should completely ignore it.

  • Summary: 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 .
  • Pros: 26x manual zoom lens, Very good image quality in almost all situations, Plenty of buttons for quick access to the features you need, Mode dial saves time when picking shooting modes, Popup flash provides excellent low-light photo quality, Included lens cap fits tightly to protect glass, LCD tilts...
  • Cons: Very expensive fixed-lens camera, Camera is extremely large and heavy, Beginning photographers may be confused by all of the options, Menu structure doesn't seem to have a lot of organization, Autofocus mechanism struggles to find the subject more often than it should for a camera in this price r...

PC Magazine

Fujifilm X-S1 Review

What Digital Camera
6 June 2012
  • Summary: There’s no denying, this isn’t a cheap camera. The £700 asking price is more closely aligned with DSLR cameras, though, at the same time, there’s not a superzoom on the market with a feature set as advanced as this.
  • Pros: Best in class images, best in class viewfinder, great stabilisation system, manual zoom and focus rings
  • Cons: Sensor issues with specular highlights, autofocus won’t rival a DSLR, on/off issue on occasion, it's rather expensive

Fujifilm X-S1 Digital Camera Review

Buy-n-Shoot.com
23 May 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...

Fuji X-S1

27 January 2012
  • Summary: The Fuji X-S1 is an extremely versatile digital camera packed with features and built around a relatively large EXR CMOS sensor which gives low image noise for its class and top-notch dynamic-range.

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...

1 July 2012
  • Excerpt: Importantly, though, as with both the X10 and X100, sensor and lens are precisely matched. Importantly, too, the sensor is one of Fujifilm’s own creations – called an ‘EXR CMOS’ – with a different RGB filter array to the standard Bayer-type pattern (and different again to the design of the X-Pro1’s...
