Fujifilm X-M1

 

When Fujifilm introduced its X-system back in January 2012, it took the unusual step of starting out with a top-end professional model - the retro-looking but technologically innovative X-Pro1, which features the company's unique 'hybrid'...

Excellent image quality; top-notch JPEG engine reduces the need for Raw ; Low noise until the very highest sensitivities ; Solid build quality, despite composite construction ; Sharp, tilting 3-inch LCD has wide viewing angle ; Quick startup,...

the DR should be in the Cons, not pros, as it is rather poor performing compared to just about anything you care to put into the menu there - add in the Sony NEX7 just to see how good things could get ; However, the Noise performance should be in the...

The X-M1 is Fujifilm's entry-level mirrorless camera with its unique X-Trans sensor. While it lacks the build quality and EVF of the more expensive X-E1, it adds a sharper, tilting LCD and Wi-Fi. The X-M1 is capable of taking incredibly sharp photos...

Fujifilm X-M1

 

The mirrorless Fujifilm X-M1 features a big APS-C image sensor that's capable of capturing some excellent images, but it's just a little slow to focus and fire.

Excellent high ISO images. 5.5fps shooting. Retro design. Sharp kit lens. Built-in flash. Tilting 921k-dot rear display. Wi-Fi. Dual control wheels. X-Trans image sensor.

No EVF option. Noticeable shutter lag. A bit slow to turn on.

The X-M1 is the first Fuji interchangeable lens camera with Wi-Fi. The very basic implementation allows you to transfer JPG images to your iOS or Android device. You'll just need to free Fujifilm Photo Receiver app or the Fujifilm Camera App from your...

Fujifilm X-M1 review

 

Fujifilm brings its interchangeable-lens camera line down another price notch with the addition of the X-M1. It's essentially a cheaper version of the X-E1, which swaps the viewfinder for a host of other features. The X-M1 is based around the same...

Thanks to the company's X-Trans sensor and good JPEG processing, the Fujifilm X-M1 delivers some of the best image quality we've seen for less than $1,000. The camera's also well designed and attractive.

Poor video quality and a subpar Wi-Fi implementation prove annoying drawbacks.

While it may not be the best overall camera available for less than $1,000, the Fujifilm X-M1 does deliver the best photo quality in its price class.

Fujifilm X-M1 ( Body Only, Brown)

 

I tested both the X-M1 and X-E1 more or less simultaneously, which turned out to be a mixed blessing. While I have no qualms about the photo quality, which is excellent and seems like a steal in the cheaper X-M1, I kept wishing for a camera that...

Fujifilm X-M1 Review

 

The Fujifilm X-M1 is a lightweight compact system camera featuring a retro design that bears more than a passing resemblance to its bigger brothers, the X-E1 and the X-Pro1. At the heart of the X-M1 is the same 16.3 megapixel APS-C sized “X-Trans” CMOS...

The Fujifilm X-M1 successfully brings the X-system to a wider audience, being smaller, lighter and significantly cheaper than the X-E1 whilst offering a newer processor, built-in wireless connectivity and a tilting LCD screen. The main sacrifice is the...

Since their debut in early 2012, Fujifilm's X-series mirrorless cameras have proven rather popular with experienced photographers. Both the Fuji X-Pro1 and X-E1 pair excellent image quality from a proprietary Fuji X-Trans image sensor, and a...

An affordable X-Trans mirrorless camera? Seems to us that could be pretty popular!

There is a certain feeling of nostalgia that this style of camera evokes, the distant memory of a camera sitting on my parents coffee table back in the late 70's and early 80's next to a couple of rolls of FujiColor. The classic shape, the silver and...
