Fujifilm XF1

Shutterbug
7 June 2015
  • Excerpt: The Fujifilm XF1 has a compact body with a retro design that is emphasized by the optional black, brown or red artificial leather and the matte metal finish. The camera doesn’t have an on/off switch but is activated by turning the lens ring on the camera front.

  • Summary: The Fujifilm XF1 is one of the more interesting looking cameras currently on the market. Not only does the synthetic leather covering give the XF1 a unique design, but its boxy shape and aluminum trim contribute to a retro look for this camera.

  • Pros: Retro styling. Sharp lens. Wide aperture at 25mm. Manual zoom lens. Collapsible lens design. Low image noise. Raw support.
  • Cons: Expensive. Small aperture when zoomed in. Limited zoom range. No viewfinder or hot shoe. Loud focus.

  • Summary: The Fujifilm XF1 is a great-looking point and shoot camera. And despite a few frustrating quirks, it's also a great performer. It has a large 2/3-inch sensor and a fast lens, which enables it to produce images with impressive quality.
  • Pros: A large sensor makes for detail-rich images and impressive low-light photography.
  • Cons: A manually operated lens makes this camera slower than other point and shoot options.

Fujifilm XF1 ( Red)

CNET
30 January 2013
  • Summary: The XF1 is a camera that both looks great and takes impressive photos. The unusual power control on the manual zoom wheel, however, is a little fiddly and won't suit everyone. Get beyond this, though, and the wide maximum aperture and raw image recording make for a very exciting, truly pocket-sized...
  • Pros: Wide aperture; Raw shooting option; Stills image quality; Movie performance; Retro design.
  • Cons: Unconventional lens mechanism; Some wobbling on movie focus.

Fujifilm XF1 Review

What Digital Camera
9 November 2012
  • Summary: Powering up the camera from it’s fully off, pocketable position does take a bit of a knack, and as a result delays the model’s start-up speed. The camera can, however, be left in standby setting with the lens protruding and if you’re planning on using the camera a lot this is probably the preferred...
  • Pros: Fantastic design; f/1.8 lens at wide angle of the focal range; manual functionality and Raw capture
  • Cons: Manual zoom implementation has a lot of travel so may not fair well after lots of heavy usage; premium price tag; slow performance at high ISO settings

  • Summary: The fujifilm XF1 is an attractive high-end compact camera with easy handling thanks to a simple layout and clever E-Fn button. With a larger-than-normal sensor, the XF1 has a solid low-light performance, too.
