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 ...

I've only had this camera for 5 days, and am overall very happy with the purchase. There are pitfalls on any camera, and coming from the Sony A77 I was pleasantly surprised that the build quality is extremely close to the Sony. My main reason for buying was simply that for an enthusiast it seems to be extremely hard to get high quality glass without massive compromises or even more massive cost - so getting the X-S1 with it's 24-624mm equivalent range and superb macro capabilities does seem ...

Opinion: This is my first “bridge” camera that I have owned. I wanted a camera with a large zoom range, without shifting lenses all the time. This should be a camera for fun, adventure, ease of use for everyone in the family to use (Normally I use Nikon DSLR). I am extremely surprised how much I got for my money! It is fast, it takes excellent pictures and movies and I am never out of zoom range. And best of all… our kids are now into photo as a hobby! Well my 27 kg. Nikon gear I love… But ...

X-S1 is a great camera to have if you want a camera close to low end DSLR, and don't want to change lens to capture moments. The form factor is similar to older S100 / S200, but much better in build quality. The image quality is much better than my old good S8100 in terms of noise and sensitive. It is very fast to start up or focus. Easy to use, customizable hot key and gives you full manual control. The built in flash is very weak. I put on the EF-42 external flash and it is a must have ...

Last week I finally got my XS-1 and the first results are INCREDIBLE! First I went with our photo club members on Saturday to Baltimore Botanical Garden and spent a morning there. You can see some of the images at http://www.flickr.com/photos/valtepordei/ Just plain JPG images, unprocessed, the way they came out of the camera. Then yesterday I took a set of images with my new Fuji and my Nikon D7000 with 24-120mm Nikkor zoom. Same images, same locations, one after the other. To my surprise, ...

I have am very interested in purchasing this camera as it is the only one on the market haveing a) a good EVF b) a manual zoom c) a slightly larger sensor However reading in dpreview's fujifilm forum there seems to be an issue with excessive play of the lens. Talks are about wobbling lens, and a sag of up to 5mm! I would be extremely grateful if the owners of this otherwise great camera supply a comment. Cheers Moxi

I have been (and I still am) an avid fan of the fujifilm HS20. For over six months now, I found it to be a great camera and done all I needed,(that was once I discovered the manual mode). But people move on, and I think I'd gone just about as far as I could with it,and I wanted something with just a bit more IQ without giving up the versatility of the superzoom and the full manual control. Well I think Fuji must have heard me .. Enter the X-S1.. I received mine yesterday and at the moment I'm ...

This is the third Fuji bridge camera that I have owned, the others being the S5000 & the S9600. So far (about 2 weeks of ownership) I am VERY pleased with the new purchase. I am still working my way through the manual and all of the capabilities of the camera but so far I have found nothing that I don't like. I'll update again later if required. The build quality is excellent. I like the substantial nature of the camera to hold and handle. The menu and control layout is very easy to use and ...
