Excerpt: I am a professional photographer living and working in Albuquerque, NM - a very difficult photo market. I use a pro Nikon rig for my business but use smaller cameras for my landscape work etc. Over the years I have owned a myriad of digital cameras from Canon, Nikon and Panasonic. The Fuji X-S1 was a failed product offering by this company - its very high price tag and various operational issues predetermined its fate in the marketplace.
Excerpt: Having tested out the X_s1, I have to say it is the best in its superzoom category. Its manual zoom lens is much more convenient. It has a much more solid feel compared to nikons and canons which feels plastic. Its image quality is relatively good thanks to its larger sensor than most others in its range and 4 aspherical elements. Problems: Expensive!
Excerpt: Just got this out of the box, and would like to know if anyone else has commented on the lens play near the outer range of zoom? It really seems to be allot for a camera that is otherwise very tight. The one I got was a refurb from Amazon, so Im wondering if this camera is an anomally, or they are all built this way. Very interested to hear any feedback from anyone that has noticed this, and if it is a design issue, or I just got a lemon.
Summary: Hi, I own this camera nearly almost half year.And bought this camera after see the reviews from this site. Actually I'm satisfied from first the time I bought this camera. Sharp images, fast focus, stunning colours...etc. But after I found out the weak point from this camera, totally disappointed. Even though updated the firmware still not solving the 'white dics blooming' problem.
Pros: great design, sharp images, fast focus, stunning 'fuji style' colours.
Cons: purple fringing right in the center of the image when photographs a bright background. 'white disc blooming' appears from the bright light when photographs low light scene.
Summary: I'm an enormous fan of the rangefinder styled Fujifilm X-10, so when I heard there was a bridge camera that used the same sensor I was very excited and ordered one immediately. Initial impressions are excellent - the robust build quality, the feel in the hand, wonderful EVF and sheer weight make you feel like you are using a premium product. I'm left-handed, but the camera controls are so nicely positioned I found it quite intuitive to operate.
Pros: La definición de imagen y el estabilizador, así como el vídeo. Anatómicamente perfecta. consumo de batería, increíblemente bajo. El enfoque, tanto manual como automático, muy logrados.
Cons: Esta cámara -la mía al menos- tiene un serio defecto, no se pueden hacer contraluces, pues enseguida se produce un circulo color malva en el centro, que no hay forma de evitar. Una verdadera pena ya que el resto de la cámara el magnífico.
