Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

Premium image quality from a class-leading sensor

The X-S1 from Fujifilm is designed for competent photographers looking for class-leading image quality and a versatile long zoom lens.

A lens for all seasons – and subjects

Offering a zoom range of 26x or 24-624mm (35mm equivalent) it caters perfectly for every photographic need and features a superbly bright f/2.8 maximum aperture at the wide-angle setting. Furthermore the clever Intelligent Digital Zoom feature doubles the maximum optical zoom to 52x or 24-1248mm without losing any of the image quality, meaning you can get even closer to your subjects without moving a muscle.

Optically, the lens comprises no fewer than 17 glass elements, which includes four aspherical elements and two ED lenses to deliver images with superb edge-to-edge sharpness and amazing clarity. The lens’ construction is first-class too, featuring metal cams for smooth zoom control and fast, precise framing. Despite the huge zoom range, the X-S1 is still more than capable when it comes to capturing subjects close to the camera. In standard mode, the zoom focuses down to 30cm, but by selecting Super Macro Mode, users can get down to just 1cm for stunning, frame-filling close-up images. What’s more, the lens’ aperture is made up of nine blades for creative out of focus highlights.

Great results in every picture-taking scenario

The X-S1 features the same 2/3-inch 12 megapixel EXR CMOS sensor as the much-lauded X10; ensuring users are assured of high quality images regardless of the lighting conditions. The unique EXR CMOS technology designed by Fujifilm allows the user to easily switch between three modes depending on the lighting conditions – or leave the camera to make its own choice in the Auto EXR mode. Switching between the modes changes the performance of the sensor for an impressive level of versatility. The High Resolution option is perfect in bright conditions or when the very best picture quality is the primary aim. Wide Dynamic Range mode should be chosen in scenes of high contrast when the user wants to get details in both shadow and highlight areas of an image, while the High Sensitivity & Low Noise option should be selected for optimum results in low light conditions. Coupled to the EXR CMOS sensor is the speedy EXR processor, which offers a minimal shutter lag of just 0.01sec and a high speed continuous shooting capability of seven frames-per-second at full resolution (Large JPEG) or a rapid 10 frames-per-second at six megapixel resolution (Medium JPEG). Which means no matter how fast the subject is moving you’ll be sure to catch it in the frame.

Crystal clear images to share with friends and family

The X-S1 is equally capable when it comes to shooting movies. Full High Definition (1920 x 1080) video can be shot with stereo sound at 30 frames-per-second then saved in the H.264 format which is currently one of the most commonly used formats for the recording, compression, and distribution of high definition video.

Full user control and picture taking versatility

Power is nothing without control and the X-S1 offers a superb level of functionality whether users want to make picture taking as simple as using a compact camera or as involved as a fully-manual digital SLR. For point and shoot simplicity, the X-S1 will assess the subject and then select the relevant scene mode for the perfect result, automatically switching the EXR CMOS sensor. This very clever camera can not only establish the type of scene being photographed, it can also calculate if an image contains a person, features backlighting or has any subject movement. ISO settings are taken care of too by the Auto ISO mode, which selects the optimum setting between ISO 100 and 3200. Those after a more advanced level of ISO control can select up to ISO 12800

Any photographers wishing to roll their sleeves up and get fully involved in the picture taking process are also well catered for with the X-S1. The camera offers a full range of conventional shooting functions (program/aperture-priority/shutter-priority/manual), plus users can also fine tune levels of colour, image sharpness and tone. Furthermore, the X-S1 provides no fewer than four auto bracketing options, eight Film Simulation and white balance functions and a One touch Raw file format.

Easy composition and image review

The X-S1 caters for those used to framing pictures on the back of an LCD and also offers a powerful combination of high quality electronic viewfinder to ensure composing and viewing images is quick and simple, regardless of the lighting conditions. The 0.47-inch electronic viewfinder (EVF) features 1.44 million pixels for superb image clarity and has a wide viewing area of 26 degrees to reduce eye strain. The EVF is impressively bright, too, making it easy to check settings or adjust focus manually. On the rear of the X-S1 is a high quality tiltable three-inch LCD. It features 460,000 pixels making it easier for users to view menus, assess exposure accuracy and view images. The rear LCD also offers a useful clever Sunny Day mode, which overcomes the perennial problem of being able to view the screen in bright conditions. So next time you’re on the beach with the children you’ll be able to create some great memories, for years to come.

The Fuji XS-1 isn't perfect by any means, but it is a very good camera overall.

I've been using quite a few big zoom bridge cameras lately from various makers
Some models do offer more zoom, or a faster lens. I've also quite a few DSLR's around with lenses so I'm a buyer who's really looking for "something different" v to replace my set up

This is a fairly hefty camera though so not an ideal choice for those looking for a lightweight all in one solution. Despite being a few years old, the X-S1 offers an outstanding price for what's on offer, and it one of the stronger bridge cameras on the market right now.

I'll update this as a rolling review which will be quite comprehensive but convey any thoughts good or bad over time.
My good and bad points so far...

+ Image quality is very good 2/3-inch EXR CMOS sensor, certainly beats smaller sensor bridge cameras without a struggle, it's not micro 4/3 or APS-C image quality but it is good, and a step up from the smaller ones
+ Excellent build quality, nice dense rubber finish body feels better than entry DSLR's, but it's not semi pro DSLR build. Metal mode and command dial, there is some dust/moisture sealing evident on the battery door (and memory card door)
+ Good lens, both in optics and in build quality. 24-624mm equivalent. Very smooth mechanical zoom action (silky) with deep rubber grips, a metal hood and filter ring finish off the quality touch, it's a work of art.

Around 4 years ago, tired of lugging a heavy bag of DSLR gear around, I decided to switch to compact and bridge cameras and guess what? My photography actually improved. I reasoned that Fujifilm with their novel EXR sensor had the best image quality since in M size DR mode you could double-up the pixels to improve colour and decrease noise. A feature ignored by just about all the reviewers who seemed not to have taken the trouble to understand the EXR sensor fully. I was using a Fujifilm HS20 and when the X-S1 was announced I bought one at the list price of £599. As expected this gave good images and although there was some 'flak' about blooming of bright highlights as I had not seen any of this I did not send my camera back for sensor replacement under warranty.
When I noticed in early 2014 that Amazon were offering the X-S1 for around £300 I bought a back-up as I really loved the X-S1 which was by now my main camera. On starting to use this second newer camera I was immediately impressed at the increase in image detail over what I had already judged was good. On contacting Fuji they replied that this was entirely due to the new sensor and offered to still replace the sensor on my original X-S1 under warranty even though it was over 2 years old.
To summarise to be able to buy a camera like this at a new price around £300 and a used (Amazon guaranteed) price of less than £200 has to be the deal of the decade if not the best deal ever.

The main strengths of the X-S1 are:

# Great Fujinon 24-624mm zoom lens (this alone must be worth the price of the camera).

I already own a. Fuji HS30 which is a great camera which took me a while to suss out the best settings for my eye. When I did I was really happy with the results. This got me thinking that if the Fuji X S1 with it,s bigger sensor could improve on the HS30 then it would be a really great bridge camera! I applied similar settings that I use on the HS 30 and the results for me are astounding. The image quality across the full zoom range is the best from any camera I have owned.I own a Canon 600D with a 18-55 and 55-250 lens and although in all honesty the Canon is much better noise wise the image appeal tone and colour wise goes to the X-S1 for me. I use post image software and this closes the noise gap.Portraits are stunning as is micro.For the guy who can afford the right glass and the inconvience of changing lens and missing shooting opportunities a DSLR can,t be beaten.Having said that the 26X lens with it's super quality is outstanding when compared with like. We've all heard about slow focus in lower light and long zoom in all honesty it's no worse than my present DSLR and lenses. I was going to buy a Sigma 18-250 lens for £250 but when the X S1 was offered at the same price I thought for the same price I can get a top quality camera with the same convince with more zoom comparable picture quality and whole host of tailored uses.Don't listen to all the knockers this camera is a steal at £250 the great pity is Fuji have discontinued producing this line.If your undecided then just get this camera while stocks last.
