Fujifilm X-S1 review

  • 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.

  • Conclusion: The more we used this camera, the more we started enjoying it. Everything from the sound of the shutter release to the robust yet comfortable feel, and the extensive image control we had, ticked the many boxes we would have when taking out a DSLR. Granted, limitations do occur in certain fields but there is nothing else out there that compares to this camera at the time of going to press.

  • Conclusion: The X-S1 is king of the superzooms and will see off any of the competition. Though, at £700, it’s a costly investment. But an investment is just what it feels like – this is a quality bit of engineering. But it’s not without fault. The autofocus system is good, but can leave a feeling of longing for something yet more capable – in particular at the telephoto end of the zoom range and when in continuous autofocus mode.
  • Pros: Great electronic viewfinder, images are great (save for specular highlight issue), decent build, manual zoom and focus rings
  • Cons: Specular highlights can morph into white dots, autofocus not all it could have been
