Since these were pre-production units with limited shoot opportunities, you&rsquo;ll have to stay tuned in the future for our reviews to get a more in-depth look.</p> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-byline"> <div class="field-label">Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/sg/users/melvin-tang" title="View user profile.">Melvin Tang</a> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><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"> Fujifilm X-T1 Graphite Silver Edition </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 dir="ltr">The X-T1 Graphite Silver Edition and X100T might both be product updates and not new models in Fujifilm&rsquo;s acclaimed X-range of cameras, but they&rsquo;re still great additions. Making good cameras better is always welcome, after all. Both cameras also get the Classic Chrome film simulation mode first seen in the X30, which gives great documentary-style images without the need for editing. </p> <p>The Graphite Silver edition of the X-T1 is largely similar to its predecessor, but the new finish on the camera&rsquo;s metal bits is really quite something. The gun-metal like colour looks fantastic, the result of a complicated six-step process, and the smooth texture succeeds in offering a greater sense of refinement.</p> <p>Button haptics for the arrow pad when pressed are greatly improved with satisfying clicks too, which was one of the few bugbears on the original X-T1. Most of the other upgrades including the electronic shutter will soon be on all X-T1s with a firmware update though, so the only reason to get this would mainly be for the new finish.</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="4896" height="3264" title="Fujifilm X-T1 Graphite Silver Edition " alt="Fujifilm X-T1 Graphite Silver Edition " src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/DSCF3319.JPG?1411395168" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="4896" height="3264" title="Fujifilm X-T1 Graphite Silver Edition " alt="Fujifilm X-T1 Graphite Silver Edition " src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/DSCF3322.JPG?1411395168" /> </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"> Fujifilm X100T </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 dir="ltr">As for the X100T, it&rsquo;s a nice evolution of last year&rsquo;s X100S, upgrading the advanced hybrid viewfinder with a new graphic interface. More importantly, there&rsquo;s now an electronic rangefinder, placing a live view focus electronic viewfinder window in the optical viewfinder. It&rsquo;s quite a nice touch, though we&rsquo;ll have to take it out and shoot to see how useful it really is. </p> <p dir="ltr">The camera still feels great to carry around and use, but there are also some subtle cosmetic changes to appreciate, as you can see from the side-by-side comparison. The LCD screen has been improved in terms of brightness and resolution, there&rsquo;s new detailing on the top dials, the revolving ring on its predecessor has made way for a regular arrow pad, and the function buttons on the rear panels have been changed too.</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="4896" height="3264" title="Fujifilm X100T" alt="Fujifilm X100T" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/DSCF3332.JPG?1411395168" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="4896" height="3264" title="Fujifilm X100T" alt="Fujifilm X100T" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/DSCF3329.JPG?1411395168" /> </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-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"> Leica X </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>Leica&rsquo;s new digital offering is surprisingly light given its M camera-like size. Being so thick, it&rsquo;s rather easy to grip with the premium materials in its construction giving a good solid feel. Many of the settings can be adjusted easily via the buttons on the back and a jog dial, but the shutter speed and aperture dials are still a nice touch.</p> <p>Focussing is also quite a simple affair, with the focus ring&rsquo;s smooth operation also pulling up a rangefinder window on the frankly disappointing LCD screen. Looks like you&rsquo;ll still have to wait till you get home to see how your 16MP shots really turned out. The 35mm equivalent F1.7 lens is quite quick though, with autofocus being nice and snappy. The round built-in flash is quite a nice design touch, though we wish the camera came with a viewfinder instead of having to buy the EVF attachment.&nbsp;</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="4896" height="3264" title="Leica X" alt="Leica X" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/DSCF2710.JPG?1411395168" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="4896" height="3264" title="Leica X" alt="Leica X" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/DSCF2716.JPG?1411395168" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-3"> <div class="field-label">Image #3:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_3" width="4896" height="3264" title="Leica X" alt="Leica X" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/DSCF2723.JPG?1411395168" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-4"> <div class="field-label">Image #4:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_4" width="4896" height="3264" title="Leica X" alt="Leica X" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/DSCF2725.JPG?1411395168" /> </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-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"> Samsung NX1 Smart Camera </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 dir="ltr">A marked difference from Samsung&rsquo;s other NX cameras, the NX1 is huge in comparison, almost reaching full DSLR size and weight. Similar to their approach with smartphones, Samsung has stuffed the NX1 full of impressive features, which helps to explain the bulk. It even has a plasticky feel to go with it!</p> <p dir="ltr">But we weren&rsquo;t kidding when we said the features were impressive: the top has an LCD display like a pro DSLR, the camera can shoot up to 15fps, it&rsquo;s capable of 4K video, it&rsquo;s got a 205-point autofocus system, and it&rsquo;s the world&rsquo;s first 28MP APS-C backside illuminated CMOS sensor. Talk about overachieving. </p> <p>However, it&rsquo;s still got a way to go in way of usability. It might be able to shoot really fast, with a decent electronic viewfinder and vibrant images appearing beautifully on the tilt-enabled touch display, but adjusting settings isn&rsquo;t quite so speedy. Might just be a matter of getting used to where all the dials and buttons are. The camera does live up to its &ldquo;Smart&rdquo; moniker though, with connectivity encompassing Wi-Fi, NFC, and Bluetooth for seamless communication with smart devices.&nbsp;</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="4896" height="3264" title="Samsung NX1 Smart Camera" alt="Samsung NX1 Smart Camera" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/DSCF2742.JPG?1411395168" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="4896" height="3264" title="Samsung NX1 Smart Camera" alt="Samsung NX1 Smart Camera" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/DSCF2739.JPG?1411395168" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-3"> <div class="field-label">Image #3:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_3" width="4896" height="3264" title="Samsung NX1 Smart Camera" alt="Samsung NX1 Smart Camera" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/DSCF2746.JPG?1411395168" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-4"> <div class="field-label">Image #4:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_4" width="4896" height="3264" title="Samsung NX1 Smart Camera" alt="Samsung NX1 Smart Camera" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/DSCF2745.JPG?1411395168" /> </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-4"><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"> Olympus PEN E-PL7 </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 dir="ltr">Another camera for the selfie-takers, the E-PL7 is suitably portable, being very compact and light. It looks good too, carrying Olympus&rsquo; retro genes well in both black and white. Operation is also made simple with the command dial on top, with a wide range of creative modes to choose from to boot. Yes, that includes a few portrait modes, which isn&rsquo;t a surprise given the camera&rsquo;s selfie-taking emphasis. </p> <p dir="ltr">In that regard, the highlight is undoubtedly its folding touch-enabled screen, which can manoeuvre into a variety of positions, not least one that flips 180 degrees to face front below the lens. We didn&rsquo;t take any selfies, but the camera is light enough to be used in any position in search of favourable angles, with the bright and clear screen capable of showing your face superbly.</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="4896" height="3264" title="Olympus PEN E-PL7" alt="Olympus PEN E-PL7" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/DSCF2701.JPG?1411395168" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="4896" height="3264" title="Olympus PEN E-PL7" alt="Olympus PEN E-PL7" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/DSCF2702.JPG?1411395168" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-3"> <div class="field-label">Image #3:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_3" width="4896" height="3264" title="Olympus PEN E-PL7" alt="Olympus PEN E-PL7" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/DSCF2705.JPG?1411395168" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-4"> <div class="field-label">Image #4:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_4" width="4896" height="3264" title="Olympus PEN E-PL7" alt="Olympus PEN E-PL7" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/DSCF2697.JPG?1411395168" /> </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-carousel-item"><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-text field-field-carousel-item-title"> <div class="field-label">Carousel item title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Photokina 2014: 5 cameras worth your time </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-carousel-item-standfirst"> <div class="field-label">Carousel item standfirst:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> If only we can bring these shooters home </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-carousel-image-small"> <div class="field-label">Carousel item small image:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_carousel_image_small" width="450" height="340" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Fujifilm%20X-T1%20silver%20graphite.JPG?1411395168" /> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> http://www.stuff.tv/sg/photokina-2014/hands-previews-photokina/feature#comments Cameras Fujifilm Leica Olympus Photokina 2014 Samsung System Cameras Thu, 18 Sep 2014 12:24:43 +0000 Melvin Tang 1447978 at http://www.stuff.tv Fujifilm expands X-range at Photokina with new X100T and two new lenses http://www.stuff.tv/sg/fujifilm/photokina-2014/fujifilm-expands-x-range-photokina-new-x100t-and-two-new-lenses/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> A Graphite Silver Edition for its popular Fujifilm X-T1 was also unveiled at Photokina </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-enable-hero"> <div class="field-label">Enable hero:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Enable full width image </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="567" height="425" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/Fujifilm%20X100T%2001.jpg?1411035654" /> </div> </div> </div> <p dir="ltr">Traveling to Germany twice in a month.

This includes the world&rsquo;s first triple linear motor for fast and silent autofocus, best-in-class optical image stabilisation, and high weather and dust resistance with temperature tolerance down to -10 degrees celsius. It should be arriving in stores for S$2399 in November. </p> <p dir="ltr">The XF 56mm F1.2 R APD (S$2199, due December), on the other hand, is billed as an excellent lens for portraits due to the addition of an apodization filter for ideal bokeh. What this filter does is provide a softer bokeh effect for higher contrast between the sharply focussed subject and blurred background, leading to a more three-dimensional image.</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> http://www.stuff.tv/sg/fujifilm/photokina-2014/fujifilm-expands-x-range-photokina-new-x100t-and-two-new-lenses/news#comments Fujifilm Photokina 2014 System Cameras Thu, 18 Sep 2014 07:19:27 +0000 Tein Hee Seow 1447972 at http://www.stuff.tv Fujifilm X100T features the world’s first electronic rangefinder http://www.stuff.tv/sg/fujifilm/fujifilm-x100t-features-world-s-first-electronic-rangefinder/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Manual focus advocates will adore the third generation of the X100 for more than its retro looks </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-enable-hero"> <div class="field-label">Enable hero:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Enable full width image </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="1200" height="900" title="Fujifilm X100T features the world’s first electronic rangefinder" alt="Fujifilm X100T features the world’s first electronic rangefinder" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/fujifulm-x100t-silver-front.jpg?1410399499" /> </div> </div> </div> <p>Fujifilm has unveiled the X100T, the third generation of its superb <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/fujifilm/fujifilm-finepix-x100/review">X100</a> compact camera &ndash; and it&rsquo;s the first snapper on the market to offer an electronic rangefinder.</p> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-byline"> <div class="field-label">Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/sg/users/sam-kieldsen" title="View user profile.">Sam Kieldsen</a> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>News Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><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>Other new features include a simulation of Fujifilm&rsquo;s Classic Chrome film (expect muted tones and deep colours, say Fuji); seven customisable Fn buttons; a sharper, higher resolution screen; an electronic shutter that can shoot as fast as 1/32000 of a second.</p> <p>There&rsquo;s a 16.3MP X-Trans CMOS II sensor; sensitivity up to ISO 51200; built-in Wi-Fi which allows you to control the camera from a smartphone, or send images directly to one; and 1080p video at frame rates up to 60fps.</p> <p>It&rsquo;ll be available in silver (shown) and black finishes, but we&#39;re not too sure when it comes our way.

Its stylish retro design rather harkens back to cameras like the original Olympus PEN model. Look past the vintage vibe, though, and you&#39;ll see the X100T has some interesting things going on.</p> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-byline"> <div class="field-label">Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/sg/users/erna-mahyuni" title="View user profile.">Erna Mahyuni</a> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>News Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><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"> Polish and power </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>How does this sparkly new viewfinder work? What happens is that it enables focusing that feels just like you&#39;re using a mechanical rangefinder. You can easily switch from optical viewfinder mode to electronic rangefinder mode by pushing the OVF/EVF switching lever. You can also fiddle with shooting effect reflection settings and preview them from within the viewfinder.</p> <p>As to the LCD on the X100T, Fujifilm&#39;s fitted in a high-definition 1.04M-dot 3&rdquo; LCD.</p> <p>Fujifilm also said it increased the frame coverage on the X100T to 92 per cent, from 90 per cent on the X100S. Other neat additions: real-time parallax correction for better accuracy, and the ability to select focus peak highlights, digital split images and the magnification of the focused area.</p> <p>The X100T uses a 16.3MP APS-C X-Trans CMOS II Sensor and EXR Processor II. Its body has die-cast magnesium on the top surface and bottom, while its aperture ring, exposure compensation dial and shutter speed dial now have grooved patterns for better feel and grip.</p> <p>If you miss film, but can&#39;t be bothered with processing then you can try Fujifilm&#39;s &#39;Classic Chrome&#39; film simulation that tries to emulate the real thing. Other features worth noting is full HD video capture at 1080p with manual focus available during recording as well as Wi-Fi support.</p> <p>The X100T is priced at US$1299.95 ($1642.40) and comes in silver and black.

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.

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.

X-series, the XF1 is a premium 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="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/canon/canon-powershot-s110/review">Canon S110</a> and <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/rx100/sony-rx100/review">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.

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-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"> 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.

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.
