Fujifilm X-M1

Announced Jun 25, 2013 •
16 megapixels | 3 screen | APS-C sensor

I just purchased an XM1 and am a bit disappointed in its functionality and deletion by Fuji of key items. I'm not disappointed in the low price or it's image quality (IQ is outstanding from my first few uses). Of course this is what makes the XM1 affordable. My irks are: Lack of a/e lock button for metering, doesn't seem to have the function of immediate image display when shooting in RAW, no intelligent zoom feature, only one B/W basic filter, no EVF (but I can live without it). The on/off ...

I have owned a number of cameras over the years: Olympus OMD EM10, Nikon 1 J4, Canon 6D and  Sony A6000, but I never had a chance to try out Fuji (other than shooting an XE1 years ago for an afternoon).  When you read Fuji reviews online you get the idea that this camera has several remarkable strengths: superb JPEGs, excellent color rendition, amazing detail and impressive high ISO noise performance.  Maybe I set the bar to high in my mind, but the XTRANS sensor did not impress me: 1) Color ...

I researched this camera quite a bit before purchasing it at the end of 2013. Image quality with the kit lens was so-so, but I soon purchased the 35 mm f 1.4 lens just prior to a weeklong trip to Mexico. The tiltable LCD screen on this camera makes it perfect for candid city shots and color reproduction was incredible. I have taken several photos with the lens that are simply breathtaking. I haven't taken a single photo using the in-body flash, and quite frankly don't intend to. The 1.4 lens ...

I chose the X-M1 as I could not justify the extra expense for the X-E1 or X-Pro1, plus Fuji were offering it with a free XC 50-230mm lens as well as the XC 16-50mm. As it has the same sensor as the X-Pro1, my expectations for IQ were very high and I was not disappointed. I chose the camera in the tan/silver option, which meant it came with the silver lens instead of black. It just looks SO classy and so many people ask to look at it. More importantly, it takes great shots. IQ is superb, ...

48 hrs with the X-M1 My friend bought the X-M1 with the thought that he could do without a viewfinder –optical, electronic or highbred. When he found out that his life was miserable without one, he decided to sell his X-M1 to me at a third less the price he paid for and at a generous installment time. I was hesitant to take it because I’m cash strapped and I already have too many cameras. And besides I told myself that should I join the Fuji X-Craze I would opt for the X-A1, not only because ...

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! G2D

I have been playing with the X-M1 for two days, and so far I love it. The colors are superb (tank you Fuji), and the noise is not a problem up to ISO 6400. My only issue so far is the fact that the included RAW converter (Silkypix) can't duplicated the camera JPEGs (colors and contrasts don't match), but the in-camera's RAW converter can, although it's an hassle to have to proceed that way. Focusing is good and relatively fast, but kind of struggle in low light, even with the assist lamp. Ove ...

I use X-M1 with 27 mm lenses more than one month. Prefer film mode natural+sharp=+2, frame size 1x1, auto ISO, S priority. Forgot about flash. Almost perfect, first class camera. Nikon and Cannon lost market. X-M1 is not so perfect like Sony Rx1R, but better than any other competitors. If you have no money for Rx1R, buy X-M1 + 27mm, no choice. Do not buy zoom lenses. Closest competitors: Leica X-Vario and Olympus D-5 - have nice picture but noisy on low ISO (sensor). Of course, Leica price ...
