I have noticed that there seems to be a lot of lateral movement on the manual focus ring on my X-S1. Is this normal ? 27 Oct 2014
I can't say the movement on mine is particularly noticeable, ie to the degree that I would consider it excessive.
Hi Clifford, I have 2 X-S1's both bought from amazon. One in February and one in June of this year. The first had 'Orbs' and was sent to Fuji for repair under warranty. They mislaid my sales invoice and so asked me to pay a total of £100.00 for the repair (note this). I sent a copy of sales invoice and repair was done FOC. Now. Fuji say that `Any X-S1 with a serial number above 21 are modified units that have new sensor fitted. Both my X-S1's have serial numbers of 34N so....? I sent Fuji a few sample images; they say they are not `Orbs'? If so, why did they want to charge me £100.00 for fixing nothing? If you nip over to Flicker and look under `darkroomboffin' you will see my photostream and the `Orbs' are there for all to see. These in fairness were taken on one of my X10's (an early model) but `Orbs' are `Orbs' once you see them. The bottom line is.....buy one! For the price of a good P&S you are getting an £800.00 gem of a camera. Forget the `Orbs' and enjoy an icon that unfortunately, will not be around much longer. Has my second X-S1 got `Orbs'...I don't know and to be honest, I don't care. It is such a great camera that just holding it gives immense pleasure. I'm a Fuji fan and have an X-pro1, HS30, HS50 (fantastic camera) two X10's and plus a few odd fellows. Fuji make great cameras, they also make the odd mistake...just like any other manufacture. Hope this helps. S.
Is there a good budget travel tripod that can handle the weight of the XS1? Ideally I wouldn't want it to be more than 40cm long when folded up. Thank 10 Aug 2014
I have a gorillapod, the x-S1 needs the larger one to accommodate the weight/balance when the zoom is fully extended
Can the battery be charged whilst it's in the X-S1 and connected to a computer via the USB or taken out and installed in the charger? 1 Jun 2014
As far as I know, the battery can only be charged by removing the battery and using the supplied charger. The USB is just used for transferring images and video.
I have had this camers (x-s1)for about about a week, I have taken 185 shots. I have han to charge the battery three times, is this normal. the battery was not sealed when i received the camera 24 May 2014
No, definitely not, I manage to get about 500 just shooting jpegs. (Less if you are using the flash, shooting RAW or have the screen/EVF brightness turned up high).-A great camera IMHO, just needs a new battery.
