  • I agree about the zoom--it is silky smooth and effortless on the X-S1.  In fact you can use one finger on the left hand to zoom instead of having to grab the barrel and rotate.  This is in ...
  • This model has quite a few bells and whistles including focus and metering tweaks and many other things.  I am not sure where you are investigating for your potential purchase but know that the ...
  • Thanks guys. As I posted last year when I first got the X-S1 I really admired the fit and finish of the camera (felt more like an SLR than a bridge camera) and the results were great. I have a nice ...
  • In the past with Fuji on an entirely different model, I was sent a refurbished camera that just came in plain box with the Styrofoam bubbles.  I thought that would also be the case with this one ...
  • Created discussion thread X-S1 "new" again
    I had posted last year about getting a great deal on a fairly pristine X-S1 from Ebay.  It came with one annoying quirk (the greenish yellowish artifacts in the viewfinder that seems to be pretty ...
  • Hey Tom--I was also surprised at the kind of snarky jab at the HS50, only made worse by the "every Fuji fan knows that" comment. Admittedly I am not all that well-versed on the various Fuji ...
  • Actually I think I had downloaded your PDF earlier this year when I obtained the HS35 and I also had found some info on that blog spot by Kim Letkeman.  The camera I have most often been using ...
  • I wouldn't know and really don't care since I bought it mainly to finally get something I had wanted for a while--kind of like a quest.  But since you had mentioned it I did one of those "HS50EXR ...
  • Created discussion thread HS50EXR--finally filled the "gap"
    My first "serious" digital several years ago was the Fuji S7000 and I soon moved to the S9000.  Also had FinePix S1000 that I was using for work.  On a whim bought the S4300 a few years ago which ...
  • Ah yes--the S7000 was my first foray into digital photography (I was dragged kicking and screaming from my film SLR).  I had moved on from that model and the last time I took it out of the closet ...
  • Replied in With X-S1
    That's amazing for hand-held?.  Almost looks like it was taken by a telescope on a tripod. Doug
  • I always wonder what the point of is of comparisons between compact model cameras and SLR's.  I have to think that in terms of pure technical capability, an SLR should always have better specs ...
