Fujifilm X-S1 Features
This device is a premium, high performance DSLR-styled long-zoom camera, built with careful craftsmanship for the sophisticated consumer and enthusiast photographer who are looking for maximum photographic performance – and true picture quality – with a versatile long-zoom lens housed in a durable, lightweight body.
The EXR processor delivers an extremely fast auto focus while minimizing shutter lag and supports high speed continuous shooting at full resolution. The premium long zoom device has a wide electronic viewfinder (EVF) that is exceptionally bright and clear, and it includes a heads-up sensor that automatically switches between the viewfinder and the LCD screen when the camera is raised to the user's eye to compose an image. The viewfinder uses two glass lenses and one non-spherical lens to capture realistic lighting and display true-to-life images. It has a large titling LCD display with a Monitor Sunlight Mode that allows users to review their images in bright sunlight.
The camera features Fujifilm's Intelligent Digital Zoom which effectively doubles the telephoto capabilities, and a Super Macro Mode that captures images as close as 1 cm.
This well-balanced camera also features an enhanced, full-body, rubberized grain texture coating that adds superior grip, a hot shoe mount to add additional accessories, and milled mode and adjustment dials for exceptional feel and functionality.
Why you should buy it?
1. Silky-smooth manual zoom.
2. Sharp optics; excellent for daylight shooting.
3. Shoots full HD.
4. Great auto-white balance and colors.
5. Full manual control for photography.
6. Outstanding build quality.
7. Large EVF.
8. Super strong body with good rubber grip.
Why you shouldn't buy it?
1. Not a DSLR replacement for use at high ISO's.
2. Auto-focus (AF) not fast as that of Olympus OM-D E-M5.
4. A bit big in size, just like a DSLR.
Fujifilm X-S1 Verdict
If you are a person who is desirous enough to expand beyond your current point-and-shoot and get infinitely better pictures, this camera is made for you. If you go out often with your family, I highly advise it.
But, if you are just another pixel-muncher, this one won't influence you. Also, if you are a video enthusiast, try Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ200 so that you can manually control the recording feature.
