Excerpt: While I generally like the Fuji X-S1 and have used it a lot since I got it, I began having issues with the EVF earlier this year. If I'm out shooting on a sunny day, the EVF begins to develop hot spots, they don't affect the photos in any way.
Excerpt: As I mentioned previously on this forum, I came late to the X-S1, picking one up around year and half ago. They were selling them ridiculously cheap (one vendor did on eBay) at around $349, and I just couldn't resist. Prior to this I had never even considered getting one.
Excerpt: I have a recent model XS1 that avoided the earlier problems of lens drooping and blownout highlights as well as some sensor issues. The XS1 is the best point and shot (but it is really a much more advanced camera and performs like a dslr grant it without having the same sensor).
Excerpt: Had to buy one- the price is just too good. I reviewed one for Fujifilm a while back (as a loaner), just a preview actually, but the recent rash of good superzooms and my HS50EXR review has me revved up to use a superzoom again.

Fuji have the unfortunate habit of making some great camera,which don't always have the bugs removed first,the HS series,and the...
Summary: I've owned an SLR for the past 14 years and have wanted to "upgrade" but without spending a lot of money on a new camera. Digital SLR's are just too expensive, especially when you throw in the lenses that I would have liked to use.
Summary: This is a great camera! I have owned this now for about two weeks, and I have tried most of the settings. Each setting works, and there are enough settings to challenge a take charge kind of a photographer as well as a let the camera take control type of photographer.
Excerpt: I own a Fuji X-10 with is a wonderful little camera when you don't want to carry along your DSLR (mine is presently a Pentax K30. I really love the IQ, the responsiveness, the build quality and the ergonomy of the X10, which shares the same sensor and processor with the X-S1.
Summary: I no longer relish the hassle of carrying several lenses with my SLR camera. After deciding to purchase a bridge camera, I agonized over the wide variety of cameras available. Finally, I vacillated between the Fujifilm HS35EXR, the Fujifilm HS50EXR, Canon SX40, the Nikon P520 and this camera, the...
