Fujifilm X-S1 Review

 

When compared to the rest of the fixed-lens camera market, the Fujifilm X-S1 is simply one of the top models out there. Its large manually controlled zoom lens, fast response times, vibrant images, and extensive feature set easily place it near the top...

26x manual zoom lens ; Very good image quality in almost all situations ; Plenty of buttons for quick access to the features you need ; Mode dial saves time when picking shooting modes ; Popup flash provides excellent low-light photo quality ; Included...

Very expensive fixed-lens camera ; Camera is extremely large and heavy ; Beginning photographers may be confused by all of the options ; Menu structure doesn't seem to have a lot of organization ; Autofocus mechanism struggles to find the subject more...

Fujifilm X-S1

 

As part of the X series, the Fujifilm X-S1 ($799.95 direct) is placed among Fuji's top cameras. The 26x superzoom is as big and heavy as an SLR, but gives you a much longer zoom factor than you'll find in any interchangeable lens camera, and it's got a...

26x manual zoom lens. Excellent control layout. Sharp EVF. Hot shoe. Raw shooting support

Expensive. Very large. Slow to start up. Slightly soft images

The Fujifilm X-S1 is as big and as expensive as an SLR, but packs an amazing 26x zoom lens and excels at low-light shooting.

Fujifilm X-S1 Digital Camera Review

 

The Fujifilm X-S1 is a high-end bridge camera aimed at the gap between superzooms and DSLRs. The idea here is to combine reach and all-in-one convenience with natural handling and superior image quality. Fujifilm seems to be marketing the camera toward...

Once upon a time, superzooms were built to bridge the gap between pocket shooters and DSLRs, as a happy medium in terms of price, performance, and target audience. That’s still the point to a certain degree, but changes in the industry have blurred the...

Fujifilm X-S1 First Impressions Review

 

Somewhat lost in the shuffle of the big X-Pro1 announcement, Fujifilm's other new X-series camera made it's North American debut at CES.

Superzooms are treated like overpowered point-and-shoots, the happy medium between pocket cameras and DSLRs in terms of price and target audience. But they don’t make everybody happy. There are photo enthusiasts (not many, to be honest) who own a nice...

Review: Fujifilm X-S1

 

Fujifilm hopes to marry image quality and a long lens in one camera.

Very good color and macro image quality ; Solid long-distance shooting at most ranges or far with manual focus ; High relative build quality ; Substantial control for veterans ; Fast burst shooting ; Capable built-in flash plus hot shoe ; Tilting LCD ;...

Poor autofocus performance at longest zooms ; Less than ideal low-light performance ; Price puts it in an uncomfortable middle ground ; Fujifilm menu system still somewhat dense ; Video quality is low for 1080p ; Short continuous shooting buffer ;...

Fujifilm's expansion of its X series cameras has turned almost into a tuning project: it's taking virtually every class of camera the company makes and giving it a better sensor, premium optics, and advanced control. The X-S1 applies that formula to

Fujifilm X-S1

 

The Fujifilm XS-1 is the highest-end extended zoom camera money, and lots of it, can buy. For those who want an all-in-one that offers a tactile experience that rivals that of DSLRs, the XS-1's 26x lens is operated manually rather than with a toggle....

The Fujifilm X-S1 is a high-end bridge camera aimed at the gap between superzooms and DSLRs.

If the X-S1 is a bridge between pocket shooters and DSLRs, it's not a very sturdy one (nor is it the only way across).

Fujifilm X-S1 Review

 

I have to admit to a partiality to maxi zoom cameras … yes, I know they can be difficult to use, especially at full zoom. But, hey, how to catch that shot!

I had to return camera. It worked for a few pics. Turned it on for more and the screen was scrambled. Recharged the battery and got the same. Hope to receive replacement soon. I really like the camera just that one had a problem.
