X-M1

good JPEG

poor RAW support

bad interface

useless if you want to take HDR picture since bracketing is limited to small increments well short of the +/- 2EV needed

Fuji offers no firmware upgrades for bracketing

gathering dust in my closet went back to my Pentax

Avoid!

So how is the camera if you're not interested in HDR?

Lol, as reviews go this is almost comical.
No, correction, it is comical

Fujifilm were one of the first companies to give you a very wide dynamic range in their cameras with the S5 Pro, renowned for its DR. Suggest you read the manual and set the DR to 200% or 400% as you don't need to do bracketed exposures. The sensor takes care of it for you!

Re: X-M1

Well, I ordered an X-M1 when they were going for silly (low) prices on Amazon and still sent it back - very noisy shutter, awkward handling, just didn't feel right to me.

Agreed. BTW my X-M1 is great. It's the 2nd best camera I've ever owned, after the X-E2.

Do people not realize that you do not need bracketing, You can simply just change the shutter speed up and down in 1 or 2 stop increments or however you want for however many frames you want,

It is very frustrating when someone gives a camera a bad review because they do not know how to use it properly or to its potential. I haven't had the Fuji X-M1 long but the images I get from it are incredible. I know peoples opinion on 'loud' differ but I wouldn't say the shutter is loud. It's much quieter than my Nikon D5100. For the price the Fuji is incredible. I prefer using the screen to take shots as viewfinders give me a headache, strange I know, so there is nothing I would change. For me it is perfect. I use to have a Sony NEX and quite like the panorama function, but I took some shots the other day and stitched them together on my PC. It was about 30 seconds work and the pano looked much better then the Sonys as the Fuji image quality is so superior. A very happy user here. Thanks for reading.
