This review is from: FUJIFILM X-S1 16199188 Black 12.0 MP 26X Optical Zoom Wide Angle Digital Camera HDTV Output
Pros: I received this camera yesterday and I have just started to dig into the feature set this camera possesses. I initially checked to make sure it didn't have the blooming or orb problem. This camera was shipped with the updated firmware and the serial number starts with a 22A (second quarter 2012 from what I have read). I can point the camera straight down and the camera barrel stays in the position I put it. So, no orb or lens droop. Nice!
This camera has some weight to it and feel very comfortable in a large man hands. The build quality feels like it is solid and the unique rubber coating makes for a sure grip.This is the most responsive point and shoot I have ever used. I compare the shutter lag to entry level DSLR cameras that I have used in the past. It has an electronic, or silent, mode that will come in handy when observing wildlife.
Cons: The manual is printed but the print is very small so it makes it hard to read. I will probably get a PDF to the UPS Store and get a larger printed version. Not a big deal but it is an extra cost for a very expensive camera for its class. The camera strap is pretty small and thin for a camera with the size and weight of the XS-1. I will pick up a sling strap so this is not a big deal either. Knowing the cons i have mentioned prior to purchasing would not have effected my decision to purchase. They are more trivial than critical cons.
Other Thoughts: I don't feel like I am using a point and shoot when I pick up this camera and start clicking. It feels that good and responsive in my hands. I have only had it a day. I can't wait to get to know all the features that this camera contains!
I sold a new DSLR to get this camera. I feel it fits an amateur who shoots for fun and not for profit better than spending thousands on lenses. So, if you are looking for a full-sized and feature-rich camera at a decent price I would highly recommend the XS-1. I am very happy with my purchase and New Egg had a discount plus an email promo code that made this purchase an easy decision!
