Good: It has DSLR features without the hassle of a bag full of lenses
Bad: Very pricey
Comment: I think this would be a really great product if it were priced more competitively. Fuji have produced a new standard in bridge camera technology.
Good: Great design, sharp images, fast focus, stunning 'Fuji style' colours and after half year used, never seen a single dust inside the lens unlike the DSLR.
Bad: no wi-fi transmitter
Comment: Re "dougsinnott" comment
Thanks for your advice and i had took it to the Fujifilm service centre. They changed the lens and sensor. And it solved all the faults.
Good: A great all-in-one
Bad: Focus selector switch can sometimes be accidentally moved
Comment: Re "Super CKM" comments.
Take your lens faults up with Fuji UK.
They can replace the lens/sensor combination,which was a fault with early models,causing lens "creep" if held with the lens pointing downwards,and some "orbs" appearing on images taken in certain lighting conditions.
Fuji are the best after sales in the business in my long experience(nearly 50 years!)
Good: great design, sharp images, fast focus, stunning 'fuji style' colours.
Bad: purple fringing right in the center of the image when photographs a bright background. 'white disc blooming' appears from the bright light when photographs low light scene.
Comment: Hi, I own this camera nearly almost half year.And bought this camera after see the reviews from this site. Actually I'm satisfied from first the time I bought this camera. Sharp images, fast focus, stunning colours...etc. But after I found out the weak point from this camera, totally disappointed. Even though updated the firmware still not solving the 'white dics blooming' problem. And the purple fringing just right in the center of the camera that can't get rid even from the photoshop. Just point this camera between the bright window and the wall in the dark room will see it after focused. However, great experience with this camera and learned so much about photography from this fuji X-S1. I'm not an expert photographer because I only had 1 year experienced and check out the image from this fuji X-s1 that I photographs. (Www.pixoto.com/superckm)
Actually a lot of pictures spoilt from this camera, if not i'll submit even more great image. I'll look for a DSLR that others than Fuji product for long periods of time to get it now.( I'm really poor)
Good: Build quality,image quality,great lens,Fuji aftercare!
Bad: The focussing mode switch can be accidentally moved,not much else!
Comment: If you want to move,or enlarge the focussing point,make sure
"Face Detection" is off,otherwise you can't do it!
Good: Lens versatility, overall build quality.
Bad: Not quite up to the low light noise of a dSLR
Comment: I sold my complete Nikon D5000 camera kit (4 lens + flash) after I purchased the Fuji X-S1 and EF-20 flash. I've also been waiting some time for a replacement for my old Fuji S100fs. The X-S1
was clearly worth the wait.
Good: Great build,sharp lens,great images,a true all-in-one!
Bad: The focussing mode switch can be accidentally moved,(not a major issue!)
Comment: As a replacement for my HS30,it improves in lots of areas,while still maintaining the useability,and a lot of the modes and functions of the HS30.
The bigger sensor improves lowlight performance,there's more autofocussing options,and the manual focussing is also easier to use.
Also,the viewfinder has doubled in size,and improved it's resolution,and is now brighter than many DSLRs,and even the flash has had a tweak,it now lifts up,and moves over the lens more,when activated,to improve macro performmance.
The manual focussing ring sits clear of the body more,for easier use,and you can even choose which way to rotate it!
It really is a quality product,and worth every penny,even the camera strap is made of leather,and a classy metal lens hood is supplied.
Some users have mentioned that if pointed downwards,the lens will tend to "unwind",and extend to the maximum setting,which is a something which is fairly common in large zoom lenses.
As the Fuji lens barrel is metal,not plastic,as is the lens hood,it's just the weight acting on it,and is not a fault.
If the lens is just retracted to it's normal setting,this doesn't happen!
Good: Viewfinder...Sharpness.... everything realy....Great camera....... BUT
Bad: Has a bad wobble in the extended lens...takes away the great build to a good build
Comment: I love this camera from the first time I used it. I also have a Fujifilm HS10 which is no where in the X-S1's class. I have only taken a few test shots with it and find these sharp well exposed and colour correct. The one thing I dont like is the play (wobble) on the fully extended lens it seems very excessive for a camera of this quality. I have emailed Fujifilm Australia and they have said that this lens does have some play,but how much is "some". They have asked me to send it in so they can look at it. Does anyone else have this problem and to what extent.
Comment: Like the rigidity and stability of a heavier camera for low light conditions in hard to reach places!
Good: Great Sensor and Zoom Range
Bad: Fat Price tag.
Comment: Great Camera to suit nearly every needs that could rival a DSLR in performance and zooming capability. However price tag might defer some budget users to have the standard DSLR with kit lens as a start.
