  • I had read about the "orb" thing before getting my X-S1 (also on Ebay and since replaced by Fuji with NOS) and the examples of so-called orb problems didn't seem to be like much of a big deal.  ...
  • Nice photos.  Do you shoot using some custom settings or just set to EXR mode?  I have a couple of Fuji's with EXR (HS35, HS50, X-S1) and initially tried custom settings recommended by others.  ...
  • Excellent deal--congrats.  I got one of these directly from Fuji last year as a replacement (for about $200) and it was basically brand new in box--apparently new-old-stock. Doug
  • Was that the one where the guy got a replacement camera from Fuji so the serial number did not match the one on the box?  Looked like a nice deal for somebody (you). Doug
  • I discovered Lincoln City on a vacation last year--wonderful place!
  • Anyone?  Bueller?
  • Created discussion thread Screen protector (HS50 specifically)
    For the last few cameras I have acquired, I have always installed the ACMAXX LCD Armor protector over the lcd.  It is much more robust than the stick-on films I have used (that end up peeling up ...
  • I kind of went in the opposite order.  After not buy a camera for a while (was mainly using the S9000) a few years ago I decided I really wanted the HS50.  I lurked around Ebay and the ones I ...
  • And most likely you will be getting a new camera versus a repair of your camera.  I just went through this with my X-S1 and the customer service person told me that they rarely bother fixing and ...
  • Replied in Lens cap
    I was hoping for more lens cap :-D Just kidding--great photos! Doug
  • 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 ...
