Product Description

Product Description

The XF1 is the latest addition to Fujifilm's premium range of X-series cameras. Like other models in the award-winning line-up, this high quality digital compact features cutting edge technology and an eye-catching retro design that makes it the perfect choice both for those wanting to upgrade their existing compact or more advanced users after a second 'back up' camera.

Newly developed 4x zoom lens

High quality results are assured from the XF1 thanks to its newly developed 4x zoom lens. Covering 25-100mm (35mm equivalent) the manual zoom lens gives quick and precise control over framing so you never miss a shot. It also features a fast maximum aperture of f/1.8, which means you can create professional-looking images with blurred backgrounds, or shoot more easily in low light conditions without needing a tripod or an increase in ISO sensitivity. The lens itself is constructed from seven elements, all of which are treated with Fujinon's own Wide-band High Transmittance Electron Beam Coating process, which reduces ghosting and flare for sharp, clear results on every shot. Plus, it also features a unique Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS) mechanism that helps to combat camera shake in low light. For users who like to shoot close-up images, the XF1 can focus down to just 3cm and, when not in use, the lens ring can be pushed into the body to make the camera smaller and more pocketable.

EXR-CMOS sensor delivers stunning results

EXR technology delivers exceptional results

The XF1 uses Fujifilm's EXR-CMOS sensor, which modifies the way it works according to the scene being photographed. At 2/3-inch, the 12 megapixel sensor is also larger than most you'll find in compact cameras, so high quality results are assured. Everyone can take full advantage of the XF1's potential by using the EXR Auto mode. Here, the camera automatically selects one of 103 different sensor settings according to the scene's demands, making high quality images easy to achieve, regardless of ability or subject matter. Users who would rather take more control themselves can choose 1 of 3 sensor modes: HR (High Resolution) for the very best results in bright lighting conditions; DR (Dynamic Range) for optimum quality in conditions when there are lots of bright and dark areas in the image; and SN (High ISO, low noise) for great images in lower light conditions. Coupled to the EXR-CMOS sensor is a powerful EXR processor that ensures the XF1 delivers a fast, responsive performance in all conditions. It's ready to use in just 0.55 seconds, will focus in as little as 0.16 seconds, and has a minimum shot-to-shot time of just 0.8 seconds. Additionally, the EXR processor offers high-speed processing for hassle-free HD movie recording and burst-mode photography.

Fujifilm XF1 - Stunning retro design

Superb design facilitates ease of use

All models in Fujifilm's X-series are well made to exacting standards and the XF1 is no exception. The retro-styled body is light and durable thanks to its aluminium construction, while the synthetic leather covering offers improved grip and a quality feel. There's even a choice of colours – tan or black. It's not just about form over function, either. The main command dial simplifies the task of altering the shutter speed and aperture for those who want to take full control over every shot, while up to six frequently used settings can be assigned to the Function button. Viewing and reviewing images is simple, too, thanks to the 3.0-inch LCD monitor that features 460,000 dots for crystal clear images and menus along with tempered glass to protect it from scratches.

Create works of art

For the artists amongst you, the XF1 features a new advanced filter option. Choose from 11 creative filters; Pop colour, Toy camera, Miniature, High-key, Dynamic tone, and 6 Partial colour options (shoot in B&W plus one selective colour: Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Purple) for truly creative images. Further flexibility is offered by the Motion Panoramic mode that produces stunning panoramic images in a single 360° sweep of the camera and 5 Film Simulation modes where the XF1 mimics the effects of popular Fujifilm emulsions.

This is probably the second best compact camera on the market today in terms of the pictures it produces. The Sony RX100 has the stand-out sensor of the current crop and produces almost DSLR images. BUT it is horrible to handle.

The Fujifilm XF1 has a sensor 2/3 as big - which still means 25-30% larger than almost every other compact. And the pixel density is less so produces less noise. And it has EXR to improve dynamic range. The Sony and the XF1 have almost identical lenses, in optical terms.

The XF1 is a delight in the hand. It is very thin but wide and tall enough to get your hands around yet it still fits in the back pocket of my jeans so comfortably I have to be careful when sitting down.

Its party trick is the manual zoom lens which folds almost flush back into the body. Really neat when folded away and really nice to use the manual zoom. But getting from neatly tucked away to open and on is a bit awkward and far from smooth. That said, it only took a couple of days to get used to and since every other feature is fantastically good and it produces amazing pictures, I can forgive the quirky opening sequence.

Tons of advanced features, PASM and RAW as well as 3 EXR modes lends all the control a serious amateur could want.

Pros - larger than standard image sensor, advanced controls, great pictures, retro good looks, feels like a real camera, bright f1.8 lens (wide end)

Cons - no on-off switch instead the lens needs to be twisted and pulled which is odd to say the least.

Overall a brilliant, slightly quirky compact camera for enthusiastic amateur photographers.

Failed after just seven months with the message "Lens control error" on the screen. FujiFilm refuse to honour the guarantee and have quoted me twice what I paid for the camera to repair it, with no guarantee that that fix will in fact fix it. Before the camera failed completely, it took washed out photos. Many people have had the same experience. More about that here: http://davidhembrow.blogspot.nl/2015/06/fujifilm-xf-1-camera-review.html

Initially I loved this camera . It is small and well built with excellent picture quality but mine has been affected by the same lens problem mentioned in other reviews.

After just under a year's use my camera started to follow the same problems - initially some frames being horribly over-exposed for no apparent reason and then a few days later the "lens control error" message appearing once zooming past 35mm. This renders the camera inoperable until it is turned off and then on again - but the problem recurs as soon as attempting to zoom again.

This sequence of events is identical to those described by other reviewers including one earlier on Amazon reviews where it happened to 4 XF1 cameras. It seems likely therefore that this is some form of inherent problem.

I was originally so pleased with the camera that after it developed this fault I was prepared to buy another one, assuming I had been unlucky, but after searching "XF1 lens error" realised that this is a widespread problem.

A real shame because in all other respects it was a great camera.

This camera is absolutely brilliant at taking pictures in low light, and indoor conditions. I actually think that it out-performs many entry level DSLR's for this purpose.

The camera would have got 5 stars because I love the design, image quality, build quality, battery longevity etc etc but I am sad to say that this camera has failed on me after just over a years worth of use. When switching on the camera I just get 'lens control error' and cannot shoot pictures. This is a well known fault and a quick google will reveal more. It is a real shame.

It therefore means that I am left with a camera which does not work, which is out of warranty, and which will cost over £150 to repair and it is likely (looking at other reviews) that it will re-occur. Such a shame!

What a pretty camera! I wanted a more pocketable camera than my X10, and this ticked all the boxes. The first one arrived promptly and proved to be as lovely as the numerous positive reviews state. I found the infamous lens mechanism to be a real pleasure. It's all metal and nicely machined, and seems quick and intuitive to use. I have been trained on the X10 though, so I've had a head start. Over all, the build quality is very good, though not at the same level as the tank-like and similarly priced X10.

Picture quality is very nice, coming close to the x10 at times. The user interface is excellent and in general, the camera is very pleasant to use.

My first XF1 arrived with spectacular light bleed in the upper right of the LCD. This was so bad that it was even visible when using the camera in daylight. In a dark room, the display was almost unuseable. I liked the camera in general though, so I returned it for an exchange. Amazon were their usual brilliant selves about this and sent out a new camera straight away. To my complete amazement, the second camera had exactly the same massive bleed in the top right of the screen! That was it. As much as I liked the camera, this poor level of quality control isn't acceptable. I've requested a refund and gone with an RX100 instead.

VERY disappointing :-/
