Summary: While I've used film SLRs in the past, I've never stepped up to a DSLR. I've found P&S digicams and bridge cameras to work well enough for 98% of what I shoot. Sure, I wouldn't mind the added speed and quality a DSLR offers, but I don't want to pay for it and have to lug around/invest in multiple lenses. There are some tempting 4:3 options out there right now, but instead I decided to go with the Fuji X-S1.
Summary: I am very satisfied with the camera, and with some of its preset settings which work particularly well in situations where time is short. I did have a problem with the EVF after a few weeks, but I sent it to Fuji and they replaced the view finder and returned it to me in 5 days. Couldn't ask for more in the way of service.
Summary: I wanted to state that Amazon recommended the wrong bag but I noticed this before buying it. I ended up buying the following case: Case Logic SLRC-200 SLR Camera Holster, This case fits the camera perfect. The only caveat is if you want to put all the extras in the bag (charger, plug, usb cable, and lens hood), then it's a very tight fit and you need to put everything in a certain way. But, it will fit.
Summary: Bought this camera for me, and a compact superzoom for my wife. Wondering if this camera was worth the extra cost. I took several types of pictures with both cameras, so I could compare. I couldn't believe how much better this cameras pictures are. It wasn't even close. The viewing screen, despite being the same resolution, has a far better picture. The battery lasts way longer. Build quality is amazing compared to the wifes.
Summary: I am only writing this review right now, as I JUST opened the camera, for one reason. I am sure the camera is great and will update this as a review for the camera itself soon enough, however BE CAREFUL with AMAZON'S recommendations. The case it told be to buy with it, the case logic compact design, HARDLY if at all fits this camera. BUY a larger bag!
Summary: This camera is SO impressive. I had a Fuji S9000 before and loved it, until it dropped off the table and broke the battery compartment. So, Fuji was the first choice for another one. The improvements over the S9000 are unbelievable. My friends have DSLR's and spend SO MUCH on lenses. This camera has a chip almost as good as a DSLR and can take pictures from super macro to very, very long zoom.
Summary: After worrying about adverse customer reviews I finally took the plunge and made my purchase. I have now had the camera since Monday 25th Nov. So far the camera has done everything I have asked of it and to a pleasing standard. Hand held I have taken photographs at the longest extension of boat names which I could not read with the naked eye. Sharp and clear, and even when digitally enlarged still sharp enough to satisfy me. Indoor shots of people - no flash amazing.
