Re: bridge camera

Hi there,

Just received a brand new Fujifilm X S1 Bridge camera.
I tended to believe the raving reviews—mainly as I wanted to.
For me it is an ideal travel camera.

I used to have a Panasonic DMC FZ30—great cam, super lens but very poor EVF and as it is now quite historic—also very slow.

Panasonics FZ successor is now the FZ 150, Sadly (in my view) Panasonic decided to drop the excellent manual zoom and add a motorized version, the EVF however is still of the low resolution variety.

The Fujifilm X-S1 is definitely an improvement on all levels.

  • Super manual lens from 24 to 624mm

  • Flexible LCD with good resolution.

  • Slightly larger sensor.

  • Very good EVF.

Definitely much faster than the old version of bridge cameras. The X-S1 has also a host of useful features; like panorama, and good video. The feature I have used on many occasions recently was the “burst mode bracketing” setting the shots + - 1/3, taking 3 shots in fast sequence. That enabled me later to either choose the best exposed shot, or use HDR in my Paintshop X4 software.
