Indeed, the x-e1 is an old camera in 2019, but... - despite a slow AF it produces a good IQ - it is in fact a nice machine to adapt old lenses - it is a perfect gear to catch some street scenes, meanwhile a big DSLR might be capable to shoot better pictures but once shown up, would destroy most street scenes. - 16 MP are quite enough for most purposes the gear is able to frame. So it is no big deal to choose an old x-e1 rather than a newer Fuji with some MP more, if... just if you know what ...

Many years ago, after I had bought a large Canon camera, my wife got bitten by the photo bug. After much deliberation, she bought the X-E1 and the "kit" zoom lens. While the camera was ok, it felt slow and plasticky compared to the Canon. I let my wife keep it to herself. A couple of years later I got her the 27mm pancake. That was a much nicer fit for the camera, and I occasionally borrowed it as the combination was very portable. Almost five years after her initial purchase, I was ...

I wanted a second box without putting too much to complete my X-T2, it is often equipped with XF18-55 or XF23 f / 2. It's very small, great, great for street pictures. Too bad it is not a shutter as quiet as the X-T2. I am delighted with its image quality.

I was delighted to find a small independent Camera shop in Lancashire called "Mathers of lancashire" able to compete with the big retailers and provide a great service at a great price. I am by no means a professional and have started my journey by purchasing a compact system camers - the Fuji X-E1. I shopped around as most people now-a-days going to some of the big retailers and on-line. The knowledge base i some of the very well known retailers was variable to say the least and some of the ...

I got mine used for a bargain price and I would never buy it new or any other fuji. The image quality and dynamic range are astonishing the details you get from shadow and highlight in lightroom is comparable to my nikon d610. this beat by far the e-m5 first generation and mark II and also sony nex 6. Back to the subject this camera was expensive and slow even with the latest update. however it deserve love as it have the beautiful style of rangefinder and a great sensor u need to be patient ...

+small digital viewfinder shows to you, how bright or how dark will be your photo. This is a very great advantage for daylight shootings. +resolution is enormous +many nice old lenses suitable by adapter +high Iso range usuable with scarecely noise +big posters possible +lack of deep-pass-filter allows star shootings with never seen galaxies -only with adapter: macro shootings difficult when using flash (viewfinder a few too dark with closed aperture)

Maybe a little bit problem as for the setting of a flash power before a snapshot. The setting is deeply hidden in menu. On the other hand is X-E1 very precise and reliable camera.

I own Fuji X-E1 about 4 or 5 months. I don't want to say it is perfect, no camera is, but I am happy to take photos with it and I still can say I don't miss the full frame Nikon DSLR anymore... I mostly use it indoor for portraits & nude art photos and with those great Fuji XF lenses it gives me almost everything I need. No, everything I need, we just always want more :) Here is my article about the reasons of my movement to Fuji - Why I left Nikon for Fuji X

I recently bought an X-E1 just before leaving for home . I did not have time to try it out but examining it on the flight home I have to say I had some regrets. The build quality of the camera is not good. It's OK and nothing falling apart or anything but it feels like a cheaper variety of plastic. Having taken a few shots though it does seem as though image quality compensates for the build quality. Here are 1:1 crops of a picture taken from the same position on an X-E1, GX7 and an M240. ...
