Had to buy one- the price is just too good. I reviewed one for Fujifilm a while back (as a loaner), just a preview actually, but the recent rash of good superzooms and my HS50EXR review has me revved up to use a superzoom again. I cut my teeth in digital with good superzooms like the F828 and R1, and have used several Fuji SZ's in the past as well. Even fresh off the HS50EXR review, and as much as I liked that camera for its price, I find the XS1 to definitely be a superior superzoom. Even ...

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 ...

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'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 ...

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 ...

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 ...
