Still solid: Fujifilm X-E2S Review

 

Except for a few tweaks, the Fujifilm X-E2S is a fresh-from-the-factory update of the X-E2 with current firmware but at a much lower MSRP. Given that the X-E2 is approaching three years old, how does the X-E2S measure up in today's market? Read more

With the X-E2S, Fujifilm is clearly convinced that there's some life left in its now-midrange-priced retro-styled shooter. Overall, so are we. The X-E2S is an engaging camera to use and is capable of excellent results, both in JPEG and Raw. But the...

Fujifilm X-E2

 

The Fujifilm X-E2 adds Wi-Fi and improves upon the X-E1's video capabilities, but it can't keep up with our Editors' Choice in focus or burst shooting speed.

Excellent high ISO images. 7fps continuous shooting. Sharp OLED EVF. Excellent control system. Integrated flash. Wi-Fi. 1080p60 video with mic input.

A little slow to focus. Integrated Wi-Fi doesn't support NFC. Raw capture limited to ISO 6400. Pricey.

The electronic viewfinder is nothing short of excellent. It's an OLED design, just like the one in the Sony Alpha 6000, but betters the Sony's 1,440k-dot resolution; the X-E2 EVF packs 2,359k-dots into a half-inch space. It delivers a very smooth field...

This interchangeable lens camera features a design reminiscent of Leica cameras.

Eye-level viewfinder ; Rangefinder-like controls ; Build quality ; Excellent image quality

Lacks optical low-pass filter ; No dedicated shooting mode wheel

The X-E2 is a camera that will please the avid photographer, with its throwback-yet-modern design and stellar image quality.

Fujifilm X-E2 Review

 

The X-E2 is the mid-range model in Fujifilm's X system of mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras, sitting between the relatively affordable X-M1 and X-A1 twins, and the unashamedly high-end X-Pro1 and X-T1. It's an update of the X-E1, which we liked a...

The X-E2 is an interesting camera - its shape and reliance on more traditional, dedicated external controls means it probably isn't going to make a big dent in sales of mid-range Canon and Nikons. There may not be a huge theoretical difference between...

Fujifilm X-E2 Body Only, Silver

 

The result is a camera that's generally better than its predecessor and great fun to use, but not necessarily a clear-cut buy once you lay out all the pros and cons.

The Fujifilm X-E2 delivers the same excellent photo quality as the X-E1, with a more streamlined design and slightly better performance.

It's still not terribly fast, especially for action, and the feature set remains relatively average. Plus you really don't want to use it for shooting video unless you're very careful about frame rates.

It delivers great images and is still fun to shoot with, but the Fujifilm X-E2 isn't a no-brainer upgrade over the X-E1 and other cameras outfeature it.

Fujifilm X-E2: Faster and better-designed

 

You either pick up the X-E2 and fall in love with it and its photos, or you pass.

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...

Very good image quality versus similarly priced peers ; Noise is not noticeable up to ISO 6400, resulting in good low light image quality ; Can shoot in RAW or JPEG image format (or both) ; Fast autofocus system ; Well constructed build for a...

Not enough differences/upgrades from previous X-E2 model (when it has the firmware update) ; No touch screen makes Q menu feature a little less useful ; LCD screen does not tilt ; Lack of mode dial can make X-E2S confusing to use initially ; LCD's...

Hands-On: Fujifilm XQ1, X-E2 Review

 

Fujifilm announced its point-and-shoot XQ1 and its mid-tier X-E2 earlier this month as two products that help expand its popular X Series. This past week, Fujifilm attended PhotoPlus in New York City, and lucky for us, they brought bot the XQ1 […]

Fujifilm will release both the XQ1 and X-E2 next month, and both are priced accordingly to the kind of consumer they’re being geared towards to. The Fujifilm will retail for $500, while the X-E2 will be available for $1000 for its body-only version,...
