Fujifilm X-M1

 

A small, retro-style camera that takes outstanding photos

Retro styling, Solid build quality, Good results provided by X-Trans sensor

High price-tag, No viewfinder or option for one, No touchscreen

Fujifilm X-M1 review

 

The X-M1 is something of a departure for Fujifilm. Despite bearing the "X" name this compact system camera (CSC) seems to have abandoned the retro style and dial-laden designs of its bigger X-E1 and X-Pro1 models. It may sound more B-movie than...

Great image quality is super-sharp, well priced for such image quality, tilt-angle LCD is useful, hotshoe for accessories and future expansion, minimum shutter speed, advanced shooting options, long-lasting battery

Autofocus slip-ups all too common, top thumbwheel easily knocked by accident, exposure can be off, retro styling of X-series feels somewhat lost, no ISO 100 sensitivity, no touchscreen controls, Wi-Fi issues

When it comes to the visuals the Fujifilm X-M1 is a winner. The images this camera can produce mean serious business - they're among the best from any compact system camera that we've yet seen. That's big-screen star points scored there.

Fuji X-M1 review

 

Fujifilm's smaller, more affordable X-series CSC

Tilting screen ; Small size ; Large APS-C sensor

Not a touchscreen ; Limited digital filters ; No viewfinder

If you're willing to part with a large chunk of change in return for something that looks beautiful, but still delivers in the image quality department, then you'll no doubt be pleased with the Fuji X-M1.

Stunning photo quality makes it worth the high price, but additional lenses are expensive too

Fujifilm X-M1 camera aces image quality

 

It's not be the best overall camera available for less than $1,000, but the Fujifilm X-M1 does deliver the best photo quality in its price class and looks good while doing it.

Thanks to the company's X-Trans sensor and good JPEG processing, the ; delivers some of the best image quality we've seen for less than $1,000. The camera's also well designed and attractive.

Poor video quality and a subpar Wi-Fi implementation prove annoying drawbacks.

While it may not be the best overall camera available for less than $1,000, the Fujifilm X-M1 does deliver the best photo quality in its price class.

Fujifilm X-M1 review

 

With the success of Fuji's X-Pro1 and X-E1, the X-M1 was always likely to be the next logical step for the company. It has all the classic looks and stylish design we have come to expect from the X series, and includes the same excellent sensor as used...

Fujifilm X-M1 review

 

This beautifully retro camera is infused with both a classic design and modern digital tech to let you capture stunning images.

Large APS-C image sensor and competent kit zoom lens, solid-feel build without being prohibitively weighty, beautifully natural colours and attractive soft focus effects achieveable, plus advantage of pop-up flashgun and tilting rear panel LCD

No built-in electronic or optical viewfinder

Fujifilm X-M1 review - The X-M1 boasts tilting touch screen and Wi-Fi as well as manual photographic features

 

Fuji seeks a wider audience for its retro styled CSCs, with the X-M1 boasting tilting touch screen and Wi-Fi alongside manual photographic features

Large APS-C image sensor and competent kit zoom lens, solid-feel build without being prohibitively weighty, beautifully natural colours and attractive soft focus effects achieveable, plus advantage of pop-up flashgun and tilting rear panel LCD

No built-in electronic or optical viewfinder, which while it keeps down the price also limits its enthusiast appeal

Those keen amateur photographers who up until now had been considering an Olympus Pen for its ‘old fashioned’ levers and dials, or even a Leica at a push, will perhaps now want to take a closer look at what Fuji is offering these days, and in the case...

Fujifilm X-M1

 

The mirrorless Fujifilm X-M1 features a big APS-C image sensor that's capable of capturing some excellent images, but it's just a little slow to focus and fire.

The X-M1 is a little slow to start up; it takes 1.7 seconds to turn on and capture a shot. When paired with the kit lens, the shutter lag is a little longer than we’d like to see. There’s a 0.3-second delay between tripping the shutter and confirming...
