My XF1 - Impressions and Some Images ...
2

... I'm impressed !!

Haven't even had the camera for 24 hours but put about 250 images through it.

Some initial thoughts and not in any particular order.

  • Focus speed is fast but I have missed a few shots when using Macro.
  • Write time is good (similar to X-E1) but HS50 EXR is faster.
  • Images are sharp and very clean even at ISO 1600.
  • Colour is accurate (Astia).
  • There is some slight colour bleed with Raw files when using ACR/LR so have to watch the colour noise sliders carefully. Jpegs seem OK. See here - Raw Colour Bleed.
  • Camera is very well balanced and very easy to handle. It has a tiny thumb grip at the back top right but it works well. Some have reported it is 'slippery' but I don't find that. Even when sweating in the heat here.

Only slight negatives so far.

  • Dial around the four way controller is very easy to move.
  • LCD is better than those I have used prior but still a little difficult to see in bright light.
  • I have experienced 'Protected Card' warning a few times irrespective of which card I am using. The only way to clear the warning is to turn off/on/off/on, etc. I suspect I may have a faulty unit but we'll see.  

If you have ever owned an F200 EXR and are looking for a realistic upgrade - Look no further. Brilliant IQ, minimal noise and very crisp lens with f1.8 wide open.

Some images in the next post.
