5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Camera, 24 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fujifilm X-S1 Digital Camera (12MP, 26x Optical Zoom) 3 inch Tiltable LCD Screen (discontinued by manufacturer) (Electronics)
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.

Hi Davy, I use 4 basic settings the 3 C settings and a general shooting mode.I only use manual for special shooting slow stuff down and fast stuff or pictures of the moon etc.Sorry if this is long winded but in the first instance my camera mode for all the following is P mode.For general shoots I dial in iso200 image size L Quality F DR200 film sim astia wb auto colour mid sharpness hard highlights m shadow std noise reduction std/midlow depends on brightness focus area.The hs30 settings mode P iso 200 image size M quality F DR200 Film sim vivid wb auto colour mid sharpness hard nr std focus area.
I also have a low light /flash setting and a bright sunny setting which is mainly highering the iso in darker/flax condition to auto 400 and lowering to 100 plus nr to low in perfect condition. Hope you get great results
