The X-E1 is the second interchangeable lens camera from Fujifilm to offer the ground-breaking 16 megapixel APS-C X-Trans CMOS sensor. Along with the highly acclaimed X-Pro1, it offers discerning photographers the very best in image quality thanks to a combination of sensor technologies and the optical superiority of X-mount lenses. Conveniently sized and featuring an all-new high res OLED electronic viewfinder and built-in flash, the X-E1 is available in 2 colour variations – retro cool 2-tone silver and classic black.
Beautiful design, simple to use
Built in Japan, the X-E1 exudes quality and durability. The top and front covers are made from die-cast magnesium, while neat design touches include textured control dials for easier function setting and a rubber grip for balanced handling. The central positioning of the lens mount, which ensures even weight distribution, further enhances overall operation. Ease of use was top of the Fujifilm engineers' design agenda when they created the X-E1 and so it combines light weight and intuitive design. With the lens aperture ring controlled by your left hand and the top-plate dials with your right, there's no need to lower the camera from your eye so you'll never miss that important shot. You can even assign your favourite controls to the Fn (Function) button to speed up operation further. It's also highly unlikely that you'll miss a shot due to lack of battery power. The X-E1's rechargeable battery can take approximately 350 shots per charge. This number will drop when using the flash, but think of the versatility the built-in unit will offer your picture taking. With TTL metering, you'll be able to capture stunning shots both inside and out.
High-definition electronic viewfinder
The X-E1 boasts an OLED (Organic LED) electronic viewfinder with a resolution of 2.36 million dots. This makes it one of the best electronic viewfinders on the market. Colours and tones are rich in detail, plus the high resolution also makes it much easier to assess changes made to focus, exposure, white balance and picture effects including film simulation as the alterations are reflected in real time. But the impressive resolution isn't the only trick the X-E1's viewfinder has up its sleeve – it also has a unique construction featuring 3 special lens elements. As a result, the viewfinder is remarkably similar to a conventional optical viewfinder and offers clear, distortion-free viewing right into all corners. If you wear glasses, the soft surround helps you use the viewfinder easily, or there are built-in dioptre corrections if you'd prefer to take your glasses off. Either way, the 25-degree field of view will allow you to quickly scan the entire scene when you lift the X-E1 to your eye.
Unique sensor delivers exceptional colour and resolution
The X-E1 features the same 16.3 megapixel APS-C X-Trans CMOS sensor as the X-Pro1. It uses a film-inspired design to overcome problems typically associated with CMOS sensors, with the secret being the way the pixels are arranged on the sensor. On a normal CMOS sensor, the pixels are arranged in regular groups of 4 – 2 green pixels, 1 red and 1 blue. This regular order increases the chance of moiré and false colours, so a low pass filter has to be used in front of the sensor to control these effects. This, in turn, reduces resolution. On the X-Trans CMOS sensor, however, the pixels are arranged in groups of 36 – 20 green, 8 red and 8 blue. Using this structure means the chances of moiré and false colours are substantially reduced, which negates the need for a low pass filter. The result? Higher quality images with lower noise that can be enlarged up to 2.7 x 1.8m.
A more advanced sensor demands a more powerful processor, so the X-E1 features the fast, high-precision EXR Processor Pro for quick responses whatever you're shooting. The EXR Processor Pro receives image signals from the X-Trans CMOS sensor and processes the information swiftly ensuring you can quickly move on to your next shot.
X marks the spot for lens performance
Fujifilm's X lens mount makes the most of the X-E1's mirrorless design.The wide opening allows the lens to be mounted approx. 7.5mm into the body from the mount surface, which in turn delivers even light coverage right across the sensor. This ensures that you won't get a darkening at the corners of your images (vignetting) and delivers the highest possible image resolution. The lens mount also features 10 contact pins to facilitate high-speed communication between the body and lenses. 5 Fujinon lenses are currently available for the X-E1, with another 5 due to follow in 2013, but if you want more lens options right now, the Fujifilm M Mount Adapter enables you to attach any lenses with an M Mount to the camera.
Film and multiple exposure modes give added versatility
The X-E1 offers Fujifilm's creative Film Simulation modes to simulate the effects of some of the company's most famous emulsions. From the high saturation Velvia mode for landscape shots with stunning primary colours, to Astia for faithful smooth skin tone reproduction, they add extra versatility to your shooting options. It's not just transparency films that are available, either. Soft tonal Pro Neg Std and the sharper Pro Neg Hi are both suitable for indoor portrait photography, while there are also 3 settings for black & white and sepia looks. What's more, if you don't know which of the film settings you want, simply activate the Film Simulation Bracketing function that uses a single exposure to produce three images with different effects applied.There's another hark back to the days of film cameras with the Multiple Exposure mode, too. Take the first shot, and the image will be displayed on either the EVF or LCD monitor so you can accurately position the second one for truly creative images.
Full HD Movie recording
The X-E1 doesn't only excel at capturing still images; it can also shoot Full 1080p HD movies (1920 x 1080) at 24fps. In addition you can use Film Simulation modes when video recording, while the X-E1's large sensor and bright XF lenses give beautiful defocused effects When it comes to recording sound, the X-E1 offers the extra versatility of a 2.5mm jack to connect a microphone and deliver enhanced audio quality.

This is a beautifully made camera that exudes quality when you hold it, the kind of camera that makes people stop you when you are out taking pictures and ask you about it. The control system is fantastic, with the XF non-zoom lenses having an old style aperture ring to select aperture, and the camera having a shutter speed dial on the top. Auto modes are there if you need them, and the control system just feels like a photographer designed it rather than an electronic engineer. The EVF is very clear and with firmware updates gives you a WYSIWYG view which is great for knowing the effect of exposure compensation. Much has been written about the X-trans version 1 sensor inside this camera (and in the X-Pro 1). It produces images with wonderful film-like tonality, gorgeous rich colours and has brilliant high ISO performance (while some say Fuji exaggerates true ISO on their X cameras, even if ISO 6400 on this camera is really only ISO 5000, the high ISO performance still stands out). Removal of the AA filter means high resolution/detail. Raw files are a thing of beauty, especially processed in Photo Ninja or Capture One. Adobe has more or less nailed x-trans processing with the latest updated ACR or Lightroom versions. Raws show great dynamic range, high detail and lovely colour. JPEGs are wonderful with the Fuji film simulations replicating very well the look of old Fuji films like Astia and Velvia. Mono JPEGs are stunning too. You can even develop in-camera JPEGs from the raw files if you shot raw.
With the latest fimrware updates (be sure to do this if you buy the camera), the AF is accurate and reasonably snappy for static subjects, though it is slightly lens dependent. Continuous focus for moving subjects is not a strong point - I still recommend a DSLR for action, sports and wildlife photography for this reason. Also, if you have children and you are looking for a 'do it all' camera, I would suggest a DSLR over any of the Fuji X cameras, as they still can struggle keeping up with focusing on kids running around.
The Fuji lenses are fantastic - I particularly recommend the 23mm 1.4, 35mm 1.4 and the 52mm 1.2. The zooms are great as well - the 18-55 has optical image stabilisation and is the best 'kit' zoom I've ever used. If you can buy the X-E1 with that zoom for a good price just do it - it's a fantastic combination. What about the replacement, the X-E2? Well, it has a better rear LCD, better AF, wi-fi, and a few other changes - it's worth stumping up the extra for the X-E2 if faster AF or wi-fi are important to you. But you should know that some say the X-E2's JPEG engine is inferior at high ISO, and there seems to be some reality to this claim, with Fuji going for heavy NR of skin tones with X-E2 JPEGs - this is not present in X-E1 JPEGS.
So, to sum up - the X-E1 - a great way into the fantastic Fuji X system - amazing image quality, great build, fantastic lenses, great form factor - camera+lenses are generally smaller and lighter than the full frame equivalent yet IQ is almost full frame. Are there any niggles - yes, absolutely, but I'm yet to find a camera without any - the AF can't really handle action or sports or even kids running arond; some of the switches and dials can get knocked easily and moved into a different position; the rear LCD is fixed (tilting, swivelling ones are great for low level work). And did I mention HD video - it lags WAY behind that offered by my RX100 and don't even go there with micro four thirds video versus the X-syetem video - micro four thirds cams like my G6 wipe the floor with the X system cams when it comes to video. So I would say this is really a camera for stills. And in that role it excels even if it has less features on paper than the newer X-E2 or X-T1.
Pros and amateurs alike are getting fantastic results with this camera and Fuji X lenses - check out Zack Arias' blogs etc and videos on You Tube. I seriouslty receommend you check out the Fuji X series - I had heard the hype and was skeptical - how can there be a 'look' to digital images these days that is peculiar to particular camera systems, when everything is tweakable via raw, I said to myself. And yet when I started looking at X-E1 raws I had shot I could see this Fuji 'look' almost straight away. There is a tonality and film-like quality to the images for sure. Try one and see !
