I own a Fuji X-10 with is a wonderful little camera when you don't want to carry along your DSLR (mine is presently a Pentax K30. I really love the IQ, the responsiveness, the build quality and the ergonomy of the X10, which shares the same sensor and processor with the X-S1. So, when the price of the X-S1 went down recently, and as I had read in all reviews that all the initial issues had been fixed, I bought one to test the convenience of that all in one superzoom bridge. It is a wonderful ...

My first camera was a Fuji 9600 Bridge camera and I liked it well enough but didn't really know how to use it. I nevertheless proceeded to buy and use the following: Panasonic FZ8, FZ28, Canon 40d, Nikon D80, Nikon D90, Canon 500d, Pentax K-5, Samsung NX11, Nikon D7000, Pentax K-r, Canon SX50. In addition, and working in a Camera Store, I have had the chance to use many of the other makes and models up to the start of last year. So after all of that and having spent £thousands, I've finally ...

I have owned this camera and posted a picture that I took of my Super Glide. I had the pre 23 serial so the orbs were present. Solid build, great ergonomics, great glass, good zoom and best of all image quality is very good and all in one without carrying several lenses around. The battery life is amazing! The current price on GearShop is $350 a great deal to be sure.

I am a professional photographer living and working in Albuquerque, NM - a very difficult photo market. I use a pro Nikon rig for my business but use smaller cameras for my landscape work etc. Over the years I have owned a myriad of digital cameras from Canon, Nikon and Panasonic. The Fuji X-S1 was a failed product offering by this company - its very high price tag and various operational issues predetermined its fate in the marketplace. However, now it is quite the bargain. The photo ...

Just got this out of the box, and would like to know if anyone else has commented on the lens play near the outer range of zoom? It really seems to be allot for a camera that is otherwise very tight. The one I got was a refurb from Amazon, so Im wondering if this camera is an anomally, or they are all built this way. Very interested to hear any feedback from anyone that has noticed this, and if it is a design issue, or I just got a lemon. Other than that, the camera is awesome. DaveB in New ...

I've been positively impressed from the beginning by the X-S1's quality of construction and the presence of so many direct physical controls. It looks and feels like a quality DSLR, but obviously with a lot more zoom for the money. Admittedly, the 2/3" sensor is quite small by present standards, and the EXR sensor and processor have now been replaced with X-Trans and APS-C Bayer in Fuji's later lines. However, still being an EXR fan, I find the X-S1 to be a perfect tool for many kinds of ...

I really love this camera. Remember that we have to judge it based on the catagory that it fills. First I will adress the build quality. It is simply outstanding without a doubt. Built great, feels great. A true pleasure to use due to the solidity, materials and architecture. A camera that you really want to pick up. Very easy to seamlessly interface with your intent and become one with. Controls are thought out well. You can merge with this camera and do any shot from super macro ...

Having tested out the X_s1, I have to say it is the best in its superzoom category. Its manual zoom lens is much more convenient. It has a much more solid feel compared to nikons and canons which feels plastic. Its image quality is relatively good thanks to its larger sensor than most others in its range and 4 aspherical elements. Problems: Expensive!

It is the most versatile camera I've ever owned. Simply brilliant in every way, point and shoot has never been so fool proof. EXR settings are great and picture quality is just stunning, amount of pixels is adequate for just about any use. Speed is just awesome, video is stunning. What a joy to own this camera. FujiFilm has done a great job in building an affordable, high quality point and shooter that stands out in the crowd. Kudos!

I have a gallery in my profile with some samples from the X-S1 and will be adding more to it over time. I bought this camera just over a week ago just prior to a trip to Toronto. I was looking forward to trying the camera out at Niagara Falls as well as the many daffodil fields. I was most pleased with the results of the flowers. The shots at Niagara turned out good but zooming in too 100% magnification revealed the typical "pixel mottling" I find common in non-SLR cameras.....in other words ...
