Fujifilm XF1 Review

1 July 2013
  • Excerpt: The enthusiast compact camera segment has seen a lot of action. It started with pocketable cameras featuring a slightly larger sensor than the standard 1/2.3-inch type along with fully manual controls and support for RAW (for instance, the Canon PowerShot S100). Then came the even smaller and svelte Sony Cyber-shot RX100 featuring a 1-inch type sensor along with a bright f/1.8 lens.

  • Conclusion: The Fujifilm XF1 is a neat retro-look compact camera with sharp optics, but its light-gathering capability diminishes as you zoom.
  • 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 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. Well done to Fuji for trying something different with the lens design, which could have been the camera's trump card but for its fiddly handling, average maximum aperture at mid to telephoto settings and, disappointingly, soft edge detail.

Fujifilm XF1 review

  • Conclusion: There's a lot to like about the XF1: it's got plenty of retro style, it's easy to use, it's packed with useful shooting features and it takes a great picture. Yes, switching it on and off can be a bit fiddly, but the double payback for this is a super-sharp manually operated zoom that's a real pleasure to use, along with a camera that's small enough to happily sit inside a coat pocket when switched off.
  • Pros: Stylish snapper, Small form-factor, Very fast autofocus
  • Cons: Bit of a pain to turn on and off

  • 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 compact.
  • 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
  • Cons: Turning on the camera is awkward

  • 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. Unlike the previously reviewed X-Pro1 and X-E1, the XF1 omits both a dash in its name plus the ability to swap its optically stabilised 25-100mm equivalent lens.
  • Pros: Stylish retro appearance and lightweight aluminium build, fast/bright f/1.4 maximum aperture lens unusually boasts manual operation, high ISO12800 light sensitivity, fair pricing
  • Cons: Awkward means of activating the camera via manually extending the lens

  • Excerpt: Fujifilm has enjoyed considerable success recently with its ground-breaking cameras. It has single-handedly built a market for quality, retro-styled creative compacts with and without interchangeable lenses. Building on this success is Fuji's next battle. Stepping up to continue the good work in the compact arena is the slim and stylish 12MP XF1. Initial appearances count for a lot and there's no doubt that the XF1 stands out as a classy and attractive compact.
