Fujifilm X-E2S

 

The Fujifilm X-E2S is an interesting camera, in that it offers a retro design with plenty of buttons and dials, while maintaining advanced features. It's also a relatively thin model for an advanced camera, as it has a mirrorless design, allowing it to...

Fujifilm X-E2S Review

 

The Fujifilm X-E2S is a compact system camera that offers a few improvements when compared to its predecessor, the X-E2. These include new Zone and Wide/Tracking auto-focusing options, an Auto Mode button which activates the fully automatic Advanced SR...

Although current Fujifilm X-E2 owners won't have much reason to upgrade to this new model, the X-E2S still remains a compelling interchangeable lens camera, despite the rather short list of improvements.

Fujifilm X-E2S Review

 

After the long-awaited update to their flagship rangefinder-style X-series camera, the X-Pro2, Fujifilm also served up a refresh of their smaller, premium rangefinder-esque mirrorless camera, the Fuji X-E2S. As the name suggests, this "S" model comes...

As before, the Fuji X-E2S uses SD/SDHC/SDXC memory cards with support for faster UHS-I types, and records still image files as JPEGs, RAW or RAW+JPEGs. Videos are recorded in H.264 (MOV) format with stereo Linear PCM audio. The camera is powered by a...

Fuji X-E2S review

 

With a revamped AF system, an electronic shutter and other changes, Fuji builds on the X-E2 to make it a better enthusiast's shooter

Very good image quality ; Very good EVF ; Great noise control

Shot-to-shot times could be better ; Needs a tilting/adjustable LCD ; Some rivals offer 4K video

While it doesn't offer some of the features of its competitors, the X-E2S is well designed and a pleasure to use. It's also sensibly priced and produces high quality images.

Fujifilm X-E2S

 

Right now, Fujifilm appears to be focusing on just three lines for its compact system camera offering. The X-E2S is in the same vein as the XPro2, but without such a hefty price tag.

Fujifilm X-E2S review - Great photos but can it beat the X-T10?

 

With outstanding image quality and controls, the Fujifilm X-E2S's biggest competition comes from its own ranks.

With X-E2S, Fujifilm's modest update delivers a second $700-class ILC

 

There aren't a lot of updates to the X-E2S over the X-E2: they don't even merit a "What's new" section. Physically, there's a grippier patch on the grip, a slight aesthetic change to the buttons and an electronic shutter. In firmware Fujifilm has...

The X-E2S will arrive in February and cost the same as the X-E2: $700 for the body and $1,100 for the kit with the 18-55mmF2.8-4 lens. In the UK it will be £550 and £750, respectively; Australia will only get the kit, at AU$1,400.

Fujifilm X-E2s Review

 

We review the new X-E2s, the update to the X-E2, with a 16 megapixel sensor and updated design.

Excellent colour reproduction ; Very good noise performance ; In-camera raw conversion ; Improved front grip ; Improved focus system ; Classic camera styling and controls ; Brighter than normal 18-55mm kit lens ; Manual controls and metal dials ; Film...

Not much reason for X-E2 owners to upgrade ; Doesn't feature a tilting screen, or a touch-screen ; Easy to knock the exposure compensation dial ; ISO200-6400 limit for RAW shooting

Now that the competition is offering 20-24mp rangefinder style cameras, in the form of the Sony Alpha A6300, Panasonic Lumix GX8, and Olympus PEN-F, the Fujifilm X-E2s is in the strange position of offering a lower resolution 16mp sensor. There's also...
