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. Having to manually pull the lens from the camera body adds an extra step, but being able to hide the lens like this makes the XF1 a powerful and pocketable camera that can go with you anywhere.
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.
