Fuji Finepix X-S1 Camera Reviews Roundup
|Steve's Digicam: "One of the nice things about today's more advanced cameras is that they can offer a large number of manual control features, while also remaining easy to use in fully automatic mode. The X-S1 fits right in with these types of cameras, providing quite a few manual controls -- including a manual focus option -- while also remaining easy to use when you just want to shoot some quick snapshots. My primary complaint with..." - Nov 14 2012 More »|
|PCMag: "We used Imatest to check the sharpness of the X-S1's lens. It scored 1,685 lines per picture height at its widest setting and aperture, which is a bit shy of the 1,800 lines required for a sharp image. This is in line with Fuji's similar HS30EXR, which ekes out 1,704 lines. Where the X-S1 beats the HS30EXR is in terms of image noise--it keeps it below 1.5 percent through ISO 1600, two stops better than the HS30EXR...." - Oct 29 2012 More »|
|PhotographicCentral: "That Crazy Lens!- As if a 24-624mm focal range wasn't enough, add an excellent macro ability and a f/2.8-5.6 max aperture across its range, and it should just about cover most photographic situations with aplomb. Indeed, this lens is the heart of the XS1 and it leaves very little to be desired as an overall package. Best of all, its really no larger and heavier than a DSLR superzoom but gives you a brighter max aper..." - Oct 24 2012 More »|
|CNET UK: "The X-S1 shoots HD movies at either 1,920x1,080-pixel resolution or 1,280x720. It can step down to 640x480 for videos intended to be posted online -- a resolution at which it can up the frame rate to 70 frames per second. If you're happy to cut it still further, you can increase this to 120fps and 200fps at 320x240 and 320x112 pixels respectively. Each of these is fairly poky, and you lose the soundtrack and automat..." - Mar 28 2012 More »|

- May 10 2013 Great super zoom!, R. Shaffer "shmopsi"
Wonderful single lens option, although it is about the same size as many DSLRs. Nice manually operated zoom is smooth and easy to operate, and saves battery over electronic zoom....
- May 06 2013 Fuji XS-1 Orb issued used from Amazon, Howard E. Tyree "Htree11"
I purchased thew XS-1 from Amazon.com's Warehouse deal used. It 's a 14.....Series Serial number. I say this because when taking a shot of the moon, well after Amazon's return deadline, all I was able to get was a bright disc and no features. Fuji repairs says that the camera in this series has orbs issues, specular light, and will not focus on bright subject matters...
- Apr 12 2013 Do not buy this camera from Amazon US, Philippe Laurent
The one star rating is not directly for the product but for Amazon who sold me on February 21 2013 a camera with the (well known) bad sensor (serial number 21xxx). I called Fujifilm and they told me that I never should have been sold this camera at this date. I now have to send the camera to Fujifilm for a sensor replacement. My advice: do not buy this camera from Amazo...
