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.
Excerpt: With camera-incorporating smartphones eviscerating the market for simpler snapshots, Fuji is another manufacturer reacting by going high-end. The XF1 is the latest in its gorgeously retro styled ‘X’ series of premium-build compacts.
Pros: Stylish retro appearance and lightweight aluminium build. Fast and bright f/1.4 maximum aperture lens with manual operation. High ISO12800 light sensitivity. Fair pricing
Conclusion: There's much to like about this classy-looking creative compact from Fujifilm. The image quality and ISO performance mark it out as a genuine contender and on the whole we found it simple and easy to use. But we're still in two minds about the mechanical lens.
Summary: The Fujifilm XF1 is priced at Rs 33,989, which may sound unreasonable to you. But then, you get a pocketable camera that performs almost at par with an entry-level DSLR equipped with the 18-55 mm kit lens.
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.
Summary: Small, sleek and stylish - Fujifilm has sexed up the X range
Pros: Design, Large sensor, Raw format shooting, Images straight from the camera need little editing, with bright, but not overly vibrant, colours. There's lots of options to get creative, with film simulation modes and art filters. Unlike many other cameras, you can also shoot in raw format when shoot...
Cons: Not a touchscreen, Awkward lens mechanism, We would have liked to have seen a touchscreen on the Fuji X-F1, since selecting an autofocus point is a little fiddly without. The mechanism for opening and closing the lens is designed to make the camera sleek, but in practice we found it a little anno...
