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 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. ...

Let me begin by saying I can't count on the fingers of both hands how many compliments I've received when shooting with the X-E1. The slim form factor and elegant, silver-clad metal top and bottom plate make this one of the most indisputably gorgeous cameras produced to date. Nobody that I let handle the camera has walked away unimpressed with its heft and quality build. Fortunately, the X-E1 has at least the function to match its form. Independent dials for exposure compensation and shutter ...

A solid camera with excellent build quality, traditional layout and one of the best -if not the best- APS-C sensor served by razor sharp X-mount lenses. Light and portable and very discrete it is the ideal travel camera. The image quality at lower ISOs is exceptional, skin tones look absolutely natural and high ISO performance nothing less than spectacular. Excellent dynamic range and unique capabilities for B&W photography. Congratulations to Fujifilm for making such a great camera for the ...

Just got my XEi plus fuji 18mm lens. Really must rave over this camera. I think the image quality is superior to ones from my EOS 5 mk2. Lens is virtually distortion free, colours are lovely, have it set to Fuji velvia film emulation so it just has a tiny bit of extra saturation - I live in the uk and the weather is so miserable that a little kick to colours is nice. Optical viewfinder lovely to use at night and the flash is remarkably good although not powerfull. I bought an adaptor so I ...

I bought an x-e1 from hong kong before they were available in the UK and couldnt wait to get my hands on what seemed to be the ultimate in quality and value mirrorless cameras and was left unimpressed after a few months of usage. What i liked the way aperture and shutter speed A, S and M are selected - so intuitive, should be this way on all cameras focal length and speed of the prime lenses available as well as the price LCD display, sharp and useful looks cool great build quality What i didnt ...

If only the auto-focus was as fast as Olympus, I would have rated it as 5 stars! This camera is truly not only a design marvel but the performance of the 35 mm f/1.4 lens is simply mind blowing with such a signature character. The sharpness, correctness of the colores, bokeh ...etc. simply beyond my expectation. The weight and size is excellent too. In my opinions a wireless huttter release should be available too in the near future. Honestly I have never seen such a successful mirorless ...
