I have been using the Fuji X-E1 since the official release date of the camera on the 17th of November. Rather than showing you performance charts or trying to convince you that this camera is the best in the world just because I love it, I will first give you the context in which I decided to buy an X-E1: what other cameras I am/have been using, what i was looking for exactly in a new camera, what other brands/models I did consider, and why I ended up choosing the Fuji in the end. In my opinion, these are an important part of any review, because what matters for me might not be what matters for YOU. All cameras come with pros and cons, so you need to be aware of the trade-offs that come with each model, in order to make the best investment decision for YOU……
Conclusion: The Fuji X-E1is a beautifully designed camera, aiming first at the photographer rather than the geek inside us. Its command dials and intuitive Q menu invite us to free our mind from the unnecessary and take more time to think of our pictures instead of the technical details. It produces outstanding images even at high ISO, and the in-camera JPEG engine renders files with sharp details and vivid colors, depending on the “film simulation” mode that you choose. However, no camera is perfect, and the X-E1 is to be avoided if you are allergic to manual focusing, as the autofocus may struggle in low light. Also, as a camera designed primarily for photographers, the X-E1 is light on video modes… In the end, it all comes down to what is important for you, and if you are looking for a lightweight camera with outstanding image quality in all light conditions for still subjects, the Fuji X-E1 is exactly what you need.
