I played X-S1 for months then i have many great images, comparable to my old Sony Alpha 350 DSLR.
The color is so “Fuji style”,very acceptable for far end zoom. Fast focus, noise handling far more better than my old Alpha. I just use it for taking wedding photos. No doubt about it.
And the most importance is, when i take a trip inside the jungle at south of Java, Indonesia with a small group of photographers, just bring small bag contains X-S1, 2 battery (for backup), 2 memory cards, Lens Cleaner and 1 Fujifilm F42 Flash with 8 Sanyo Enelop Battery, my dry clothes, and also bring a Sirui folded tripod.
And look for the other photographers, so bulky their bag, and heavy. Contain at least 3 lenses, 1 flash and bla bla bla. OMG !!! Only for camera !!! The clothes and tripod take a place in another bag. You want to take picture or house moving, dude? :D Every 600m they asked for stop taking rest because of the weight. -___-
The result is i can take so many great macros (thanks to Super Macro capability), panoramic, moments, candid (when the other felt tired because of their bag’s weight, their face is so funny ^^) when in process to the destination, and off course the landscape view that we are looking for.

I think Tony Sturns photosets are enough to make me buy this camera (if i had the geld$£)
all the moaners and wingers who couldn’t be bothered to read their manuals and set the camera up should go and look at Tony’s photos on flickr - fantastic!
well done Tony

Had this camera for 7 weeks now and have enjoyed every minute using it! My DSLR is almost redundant! In fact I think the only way to improve it would be to have f2.8 througout the zoom range-then this would be a cracker!!
And regarding image quality? Well, yes, it may not quite be up there with DSLR images (remember you need expensive glass for excellent image quality-we have been in a recession and not everyone can afford to do this!). But speaking as a complete amateur, the XS-1 is a great camera and fun to use, and the image quality is good-and I have been even quite pleased with low light and high ISO experimentation! I have found the autofocus to be fast and accurate, there is also the very usable manual focus if you need it-and the super evf!
The no-brainer now is the price-below £450 now. I wonder if that factor now makes this an even better camera than the review suggests! Oh, and also had a photo published in local paper so well pleased!!
Sometimes you can criticise something without actually appreciating what a good thing you actually have.

I have to really laugh at some people. Where did they get their Photography Education? Out of a Carcker Jack Box? This is a very accurate review, written by some very highly skilled and informed people. I have been in the Photography Arts for 45 yrs. and have had some of the best equipment money can buy, but most important, I KNEW HOW TO USE IT!! It kills me, that when someone says how great the coverage (Image Quality) was of the Olympics, or last nights football game was, and then turn around and make evalutive statments about the IQ of the Fuji XS 1. Do you know that the lens for this camera was a spin off of the same lenses that are used for the coverage of those events they just raved about? The XS 1 is by far…by far… the best “All in one camera” your money can buy. If you want to go the DSLR road, then by all means, do so. I sold all my SLR (FILM) equipment years ago. If I said the amount, I too would be ashamed of myself. I got tired of all the “Sales Gimmics” in the industry today. Yes there are some things this camera is not capable of doing, but let me tell you this; No matter how much money you have,“YOU CAN’T BUY A GOOD GOLF SWING” Get it?? How many times have you read in the paper, or seen on the news, where a young kid was in an accident with his new Corvette that he “Just got as a graduation Gift”?? Reason? He simply was not qualified to be behind the wheel of that car!! I really laugh when people ask me; How do I get the calender to work on my cell phone? People spend lots of hard earned (Or Not) cash on the “Newest, and best, and wonder why it (No matter what it is) won’t perform like the “Add” said it would. People are lazy by a little thing that is a “LEARNED PROCESS”. They found out that it easier to ask someone else to do it, instead of “READING THE BOOK FOR THEMSELVES”. I see people all the time, that have the best Nikons, Cannons (Had lots of them)Olympus, Minolta etc…etc.. and have no idea what a Pixel is, or where the name comes from. Please don’t ask them where, or how, a pixel gets its color from. God forbid! These same people, should go out and spend $3000.00 on a set of Golf Clubs, then go to the golf course or better yet, go to the local Country Club, and play with some “Real Golfers”. They would most likely wonder what all the laughter was about after the round at the bar? But, maybe again, they just wouldn’t get it. SAD!! Seriously, if you want to talk the talk, then at least R.T.F.B (It came with your camera.., it’s called “THE MANUAL”. Oh…I forgot we were discussing camers. Sorry about that! I wonder why the big production boys in Hollywood,and the ones who film world events, like the Olympics, or “MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL”, don’t use anything but “Fuji Lenses”?? I know for a fact that Nikon, Cannon, Panasonic, etc..make really fine glass, and they are all really great. I end this buy saying this: “Before you get in the game, read the rules, read some history of the game, take some instuctions. At least, find out how many yards are on a football fied, or where the first tee is, so you won’t totally embarrass youself.(If your wondering, yes I own the Fuji XS 1, AND my fees are $145/hr. I have a waiting list of customers, and use this camera only.) Thanks, Bill Boone. PS: Thanks for a wonderful review. Great Job!!

Haven’t read anyones comments about using the manual focus on the Fuji X-S1. I like the price & size of the camera and am seriously thinking about purchasing it. With the auto digitals I have owned, none can focus on moving objects like Loons on a lake or birds in a tree. It doesn’t seem to know what you are focusing on. So I’m thinking of purchasing this camera. I don’t want to deal with changing lenses like in my old 35mm days or carrying a big bulky camera. Also I really liked the flip screen in the Canon digital I have but no longer works, but I can’t manual focus that camera. Fuji does have a flip screen but unfortunately it doesn’t flip to all angles. Would you recommend this camera for it’s manual zoom usage?

I do not agree with what was said earlier about the Fujifilm Finepix HS10. Mine has taken some VERY clear sharp images on a recent trip up to London and I have even won competitions with it!
As far as the Fuji XS-1 is concerned I think it is a very fine and well built camera. Like all bridge cameras it dont work straight out of the box - it has to be set up..
It does have one fatal flaw though, sadly, this is what we could call ‘lensflop’ for want of a better word.The fact is that when zoomed right out the lens moves up and down in its mount, this is a real pity, this is not something I read on the internet , I was in Dixons travel a few days ago and actually held a sample in my hand , zoomed it out and sure enough it moves around in its mount, real pity..
I would recommend anyone who wants to see what these cameras can really do that they pay a visit to Flickr and search for various cameras and samples of their output in the various galleries therin.PE

My X-S1 is one year old now. I have taken over 2000 pictures with it. No white orbs. No lens problems. I have not noticed any reduced performance over the zoom range. I also have a Panasonic TZ25 ( same sensor as the Panasonic flagship FZ200). The Fuji’s double sensor size makes a huge difference. I shoot jpg and RAW simultaneously to have the best for post processing. I also have a Nikon D3200/Nikor 18-105. For a safari or whatever and only one camera could be carried, the Fuji would go. The price has dropped too. Great value for money.

I have now had my XS1 for 6 months now,taken hundreds of pictures,in all conditions,and have to agree with Mark Goldstein,who has always provided fair and balanced reviews,that the XS1 is the closest thing by far to the perfect “all in one”,and the larger sensor does produce better images,under all conditions,than any other “bridge” camera.
I have been a keen photographer for 50 odd years,and have
owned and used DSLRs,and various Panasonic,Fuji,and one or two Canon compact,and superzooms,and the XS1 is a great mix of features,a great lens,and produces great results.
