  • It's interesting that no one suggests comparing pictures instead of specs.   There are extensive galleries available online for both cameras.  I suggest you look at them and see if at your stage ...
  • Ed, I don't pretend to understand Fuji marketing, but I have to agree with you, but disagree with everyone else who seems to think anything less than a 1 inch sensor compact is not worthy.  I think ...
  • Ron, Check out this thread and many others like it. https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/58358109 I have used Wasabe  batteries since I got my X-S1 and they work great.
  • Unlike the X30, the X-S1 does not have Wi-Fi.   However, there are wireless shutter releases on the market.  Whether they would work with Fuji, I don't know, but I seem to recall seeing some on ...
  • I have 3 plus charger for the X-S1 and 2 WT (Wasabi Trends) for my X30.  Never had any problems with any of them and they definitely last a little longer than the stock Fuji batteries.  You can ...
  • Looks neat.  Also available on Amazon US https://www.amazon.com/dp/B006VTQERM/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_S_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=37IW7RWDVM3A&coliid=I1GJU829AQ41R5 May have to try this one out.
  • Replied in X 30 Panic
    I use a Sharpie marking pen to mark all my batteries next to the orange plastic retainer piece so I can't insert them upside down or backwards.  This is especially helpful when your battery dies ...
  • KKJohn, If you used the lens of the X30 with the sensor of the A3 this is a crude idea of what your image would look like. Lens coverage too small for sensor size Too cover an APSC sensor you need ...
  • Looks like a keeper!  Both the dog and the camera ;-)
  • Dan, I think you need to interpret the 0 setting as a baseline image.  For example an image with "normal" sharpening, noise reduction, color saturation etc.   For an image with less sharpening or ...
  • I think the X-S1 was and is one of the best "superzooms" or bridge cameras ever made.  It is a very good combination of size, zoom reach, weather resistance, manual zoom, bigger than 1/2.3 inch ...
  • Another great set of images, John.  You truly show off the capabilities of this unique camera.  The combination of reach, weather resistance and compactness is hard to beat.
  • The camera industry is going through the same process that the audio/ high fidelity industry has been through.  As the iPOD (remember them?) and MP3 displaced the old days of stereo hifi ...
  • You can also use a large rubber band on the outside of the lens  such as the popular colored silicon wrist bands used to promote charities.  I find it somewhat inconvenient as you have to remember ...
  • Dan, To clarify and combine the other replies, you are confusing APSC which is a size of sensor with Xtrans and EXR which are types of filters and pixel arrangements used in Fuji designed sensors.  ...
  • Agree, Been there, Done that!
  • Dan, I use a Fotasy 40mm filter on my X30.  I purchased it from Amazon US.  It does not contact the front lens element.  Here is how you do the test.   Lay the camera on its back and remove the ...
  • Replied in X-S1 - RIP
    Midwest, I will have to agree and disagree with you.  It's true that the lens in the X-S1 is not as sharp as the 28-112mm equiv in my X10 or X30.  However, the lens in the X-S1 is a 24X travel ...
  • Congrats.  That's a steal for such a great camera.  I have the case and actually like it, especially since they added the battery compartment door so you can change the battery with the bottom ...
  • Replied in Fuji c-mount
    I doubt very much Fuji will produce any more 2/3rds inch sensor cameras.  One only has to read these boards to learn how inadequate such sensors are and how only a 1 inch sensor or greater is ...
