  • 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 ...
  • So what would you get with the Nikon 24-85?  You would get 27mm less telephoto reach in exchange for 1/3 inch more sensor size. (yes I know it is actually squared for area).  So yes you might get ...
  • And lack of fast zoom lens which is what Mr. Spocko noted.  And the EVF on the X30 is not small and is excellent to use.
  • Replied in X-S2: RIP???
    These prices are pretty much unheard of for a small sensor (yes 1 inch sensors are still considered small) cameras.  Although there are always some people for whom such cameras will fill a need ...
  • Ditto, It's the only camera my wife likes to have her picture taken with.  :-)  I think the Fuji skin tones play a role, but the overall handling and manual zoom for composition helps too!
  • The X30 has another low noise mode called Pro low light under the advanced menu.  It combines multiple exposures to lower noise.  It works very well.   Of course it only works for static subjects ...
  • I have applied the update and I don't see any changes in performance or otherwise.  Even if you use Windows 10, you don't need the update if you transfer images directly from the card to the ...
  • I always thought a "long" zoom was greater than 200mm. Glad DPR corrected me. I guess small sensor bridge cameras aren't for enthusiasts. For the kind of money the Sony costs it seems you could...

  • Better late than never. Here a couple of images. One from the X-S1 and one from the X-30. Both are SOOC with no post. Thought some might like to compare the two cameras. The X30 is supposed to ...
