This isn&rsquo;t a cam you&rsquo;ll drop at the first hint of sweaty hand, thanks to a well-formed finger grip and a raised thumb rest.</p> <p>The X-T1 is also Fujifilm&rsquo;s first weatherproofed X-series model, so all the ports and controls are nicely sealed from the elements. It probably won&rsquo;t survive a drop in the ocean, but a mild monsoon shouldn&rsquo;t stop it from snapping away.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Fujifilm X-T1 review" alt="Fujifilm X-T1 review" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Fujifilm_XT1_6.jpg?1396617425" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> IN USE </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>You want buttons and dials? You got &rsquo;em. There are even buttons on the dials, for those that like to lock their twiddly bits.</p> <p>The top plate is home to dedicated controls for ISO, exposure compensation, shutter speed, light metering and various shooting modes. There are also front and rear jog-dials, a couple of customisable function buttons and a focus-assist button that zooms into a portion of the frame to help with manual focusing.</p> <p>What you don&rsquo;t get is a touchscreen, however. This is all about old-school practicality and analogue feel.</p> <p>You may be surprised to find that the big pentaprism-esque lump on the top doesn&rsquo;t house a flash.

Fuji claims the X-T1 has the fastest autofocus in the world: its X-Trans sensor&rsquo;s phase detection AF can lock on in just 0.08 seconds.</p> <p>And it doesn&rsquo;t stop there. The EXR Processor II means the camera can start up in half a second and features a barely-there shutter lag of 0.05 seconds. Oh, and the electronic viewfinder is another world-beater, with a lag-time of 0.005 seconds &ndash; around a tenth the speed of conventional digital cameras.</p> <p>All this means that you&rsquo;ll have more chance of making quick captures of fleeting moments than you would with other, slower cameras.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><strong>And it&rsquo;s a tough cookie, too?</strong></p> <p>That&rsquo;s right.

It offers little new information other than a 4.5 to 4.7in screen, but rumours suggest a 1.7GHz Snapdragon processor (we're hoping for an even higher spec Snapdragon 800, similar to the one in the <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sony/sony-xperia-z-ultra-hands-review/news">Sony Xperia Z Ultra</a>), 2GB RAM and 16GB of storage space – and hopefully the much-anticipated Android v5, Key Lime Pie.

For a start, don't waste time looking for the "on" button. There isn't one – instead you twist the manual zoom ring to pop out the lens and fire up the camera.

It's synchronised (approximately) to the zoom length of the lens but you're not actually looking through the lens, so there's no impression of focus or depth of field (aside from a green dot to indicate that it's locked onto a focal point). For that you'll have to check back to the LCD.</p> <p>However, the Fujifilm X20's viewfinder does include a basic information overlay when you're in A/P/S or M modes with shutter speed and aperture info, plus an indication of whether you shot is likely to be over- or under-exposed.

Even so, the super-fast autofocus makes it quite feasible to whip out the camera and fire off an opportunistic snap and be quite confident that you'll capture the moment.</p> <p>It's well stacked with semi-pro controls too, including RAW shooting, a dedicated exposure compensation dial, a hot shoe and manual mode that extends to 30 seconds.

However, in Advanced Auto it uses a few compositing tricks to even out highlights and shadows, often to excellent effect. More experienced snappers can of course push and pull things around in-camera with manual controls, and if you're prepared to do some work after the event there's always that RAW mode.</p> <p>Colour reproduction and detail levels are generally as good as you'd hope for in a camera this size. What might exceed your expectations is the X20's ability to maintain a high shutter speed in less-than-ideal conditions, so motion blur is rarely a problem.

For example, the Fuji's 4x optical zoom is fine for portraits but can limit your possibilities when you're out and about, especially compared to the Sony's 30x zoom which can scope out a barn owl from 100 metres. As a luxury second camera the X20 is hard to resist, and so long as you've got a fallback option for those days where there's no time for chin stroking, the X20 will become a faithful friend.

grade advanced compact that takes the manually operated zoom and larger-than-average 2/3inch sensor of the X10 and squeezes it into a smaller body. Aimed primarily at enthusiasts the XF1 offers full manual control, the ability to shoot in Raw, a fast f/1.8 maximum aperture, and a generous range of shooting modes. Has it got what it takes to take on other leading advanced compacts such as the <a href="/review/panasonic-lumix-dmc-lx7">Lumix LX7</a>, <a href="/review/canon-powershot-s110">Canon S110</a> and <a href="/review/sony-rx100">Sony RX100</a>?

At just 225g with a card and battery it feels surprisingly light in the hand too, and yet also feels solid enough to stand up to the occasional knock. While it lacks a proper handgrip, the faux leather (available in black, tan or red) enables you to get a good grip of the camera.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Fujifilm XF1" alt="Fujifilm XF1" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Fujifilm-XF1-shut-lens_1.jpg?1372746060" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-2"><div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> starting up </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>As with the X10, the XF1 doesn't have an on/off switch. Instead you have to rotate the lens slightly (to unlock it) and then physically extend it away from the camera body. From here you then have to rotate it again, first to the Standby position and then to the On position. It's all a bit fiddly, and takes at least a couple of seconds, which isn't great if you're in a hurry to capture the moment. On the plus side, with the lens stored away the XF1 is easily small enough to store inside a coat pocket.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Fujifilm XF1" alt="Fujifilm XF1" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Fujifilm-XF1-held_1.jpg?1372746060" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-3"><div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> ease of use </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>The XF1 is really intuitive to use, thanks primarily to the manually operated zoom; once the lens has been extended simply turn the barrel to zoom in and out - just as you would with a DSLR lens. It certainly beats having to fiddle around with a small rocker switch around the shutter button as you do on the <a href="/review/canon-powershot-s110">Canon S110</a> and <a href="/review/panasonic-lumix-dmc-lx7">Lumix LX7</a>.

Those looking for point-and-shoot simplicity, meanwhile, can employ one of the 16 individual Scene modes or just switch to Auto. The XF1's proprietary sensor design also enables the camera to offer some clever EXR-specific shooting modes of its own, some of which are very useful in certain situations.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Fujifilm XF1" alt="Fujifilm XF1" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Fujifilm-XF1-movie_0.jpg?1372746060" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-5"><div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> sensor and resolution </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>At 2/3-inch the XF1's sensor is nearly twice the size of the 1/2.3-inch sensors found in the majority of compacts. And while 12MP might sound a bit miserly compared to some of its rivals, it's actually a sensible decision on Fuji's part as it means the XF1's sensor isn't overpopulated - something that many compacts with smaller 1/2.3inch sensors and higher megapixel counts suffer from, and which can lead to poorer image quality overall. In any case 12MP is plenty enough resolution to make prints of a decent size with.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Fujifilm XF1" alt="Fujifilm XF1" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Fujifilm-XF1-side_1.jpg?1372746060" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-6"><div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> screen and performance </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>On the back of the XF1 sits a fixed 3in, 460k-dot LCD display. While the display is bright and colourful it's not the sharpest screen we've seen on a camera of this type and price. Given the camera's premium positioning, a 921k-dot screen would surely have been more appropriate. We have no such complaints with regards to performance though, with the XF1's 49-point autofocus system being one of the fastest around.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Fujifilm XF1" alt="Fujifilm XF1" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Fujifilm-XF1-sample-image-5_1.jpg?1372746060" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-7"><div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> image quality </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Given that the XF1 uses the same sensor as the X10, it comes as no great surprise to find that image quality is vey good indeed, with the XF1 delivering consistently sharp images with good tonality and plenty of punch. In-camera JPEG processing can be adjusted too via the Film Simulation options, allowing you to either boost or mute saturation and contrast levels as you see fit. And should you find yourself faced with poor light or a high-contrast scene then the EXR-specific modes can also be relied upon to get a consistently decent image.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Fujifilm XF1" alt="Fujifilm XF1" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/fuji-xf1-front-black_0.jpg?1372746060" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-8"><div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> verdict </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>There's a lot to like about the XF1: it's got plenty of retro style, it's easy to use, it's packed with useful shooting features and it takes a great picture. Yes, switching it on and off can be a bit fiddly, but the double payback for this is a super-sharp manually operated zoom that's a real pleasure to use, along with a camera that's small enough to happily sit inside a coat pocket when switched off. If you're in the market for an enthusiast compact with bags of style, then the XF1 certainly warrants a closer look.</p> <p>Review by <strong><a href="https://plus.google.com/114332508896938408162/about">Audley Jarvis&nbsp;</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-review-rating"><legend>Review Rating</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-content-taxonomy field-field-review-type"> <div class="field-label">Type:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> picture </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-review-score"> <div class="field-label">Score:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> 8 </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-content-taxonomy field-field-review-type"> <div class="field-label">Type:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> build </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-review-score"> <div class="field-label">Score:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> 8 </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-verdict"> <div class="field-label">Verdict:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Fuji's X-series hits the spot again with the stylish, feature-packed XF1</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-preview"> <div class="field-label">Preview:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Disabled </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-legacy-url"> <div class="field-label">Legacy URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> /review/fujifilm-xf1 </div> </div> </div> http://www.stuff.tv/fujifilm-xf1/review#comments Cameras Fujifilm XF1 Fri, 01 Feb 2013 19:02:30 +0000 Luke Edwards 424107 at http://www.stuff.tv Fujifilm X-F1 compact camera announced http://www.stuff.tv/fujifilm/fujifilm-x-f1-compact-camera-announced/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> It’s official, Fuji has gone all retro with the X-F1, but without holding back on specs </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="500" height="375" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/Fuji_XF1_0.jpg?1364399557" /> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="500" height="50" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/new-twitter-banner_4073.jpg?1364399557" /> </div> </div> </div> <p>Fujifilm is kicking off Photokina early by announcing its X-F1 compact camera – nice to start in style.

Whereas the gorgeous but non-lens-swapping Fujifilm X100 had the silvery look of a 1950s Leica, the lens-enabled X-Pro1 is a little more ’70s in its workmanlike black. But it’s still got the same clever hybrid viewfinder, allowing you to switch between optical and electronic views: in optical mode, frame lines overlay a broad window, showing how your lens will crop and making composition easier. Anyone who’s used a traditional rangefinder will feel quite at home.</p> <fieldset class="fieldgroup group-pricing"><legend>Pricing</legend><div class="field field-type-number-float field-field-test-price"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> £1,980.00 </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-price-notes"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> (w/35mm lens) </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="fieldgroup group-ratings"><legend>Ratings</legend><div class="field field-type-hcmreviewrating-rating field-field-overall-rating"> <div class="field-label">Overall rating:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="hcmrating-default">8 stars</div> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>Review Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Fujifilm X-Pro1 review: image quality </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>The hybrid finder’s clever, but the real smarts lie in the DSLR-sized sensor.

The autofocus is pretty quick, and holding your zooming hand on the pin-sharp Fujinon lens helps keep shots reassuringly steady.</p> <p>The sole disappointment is that video footage could be smoother - but surely you're waiting for a video camera retro-styled like a Bolex to capture any future YouTube moments, no?
