Fujifilm XF1

 

The XF1 combines stylish retro design and advanced shooting features to good effect.

Fantastic design ; Fast f/1.8 maximum aperture at 25mm ; Full manual controls & Raw capture

Quite a bit of play in zoom at 100mm ; Worries over long-term durability of zoom ; Slow performance at high ISO settings

The XF1 enters a competitive field in the form of the enthusiast compact market, where it primarily distinguishes itself from its peers through its smart, retro design. The camera’s leather and matte aluminium finish, along with the manual zoom...

Stylish snapper ; Small form-factor ; Very fast autofocus

Bit of a pain to turn on and off

Fuji's X-series hits the spot again with the stylish, feature-packed XF1

Fujifilm XF1

 

The Fujifilm XF1 might be the baby of the X-series range, but it comes in big on the features front. Touting the same larger-than-average 2/3-inch sensor size as its X10 and X-S1 contemporaries, this compact trims back on the bulk by introducing a...

Competitively priced, f/1.8 aperture at 25mm equivalent, manual lens control (including compact collapsible design), raw shooting, E-Fn button works well, good low-mid ISO image quality, competitively priced against the competition

Ongoing "white orb" issue, maximum aperture dips to f/4.9 at the 100mm equivalent, faux leather finish looks markedly more budget than its intentions, no viewfinder possible

The Fujifilm XF1 is a great proposition that introduces a smaller scale to the X-series range; its trimmed-back feature set sits alongside the bulkier X10 very well indeed.

Fujifilm XF1 review

 

We're a bunch of cynical pessimists, always trying to reveal the worst in the products we test, but it's hard to maintain an air of cynicism when holding the XF1. Decked out in brushed aluminium and synthetic leather, the retro design is incredibly...

A stunning design, equally impressive photos and genuinely pocket-sized too

Fujifilm XF1 review

 

There is certainly room for one on the spare-looking top plate that does thankfully include a dime-sized shooting mode dial plus a small pop up flash that, like the Canon, also requires manual activation. Like that model maximum light sensitivity is...

This is a snapshot camera that is a cut above the rest, so should draw attention from snappers looking to upgrade as well as owners of bulkier cameras seeking a more pocket-friendly back up.

Fujifilm XF1 review

 

The fujifilm XF1 is an attractive high-end compact camera with easy handling thanks to a simple layout and clever E-Fn button. With a larger-than-normal sensor, the XF1 has a solid low-light performance, too. Well done to Fuji for trying something...

An adaptable, fashionista-worthy retro-styled camera

Fujifilm XF1 review

 

With camera-incorporating smartphones eviscerating the market for simpler snapshots, Fuji is another manufacturer reacting by going high-end. The XF1 is the latest in its gorgeously retro styled ‘X' series of premium-build compacts.

Stylish retro appearance and lightweight aluminium build. Fast and bright f/1.4 maximum aperture lens with manual operation. High ISO12800 light sensitivity. Fair pricing

Turning on the camera is awkward

Fujifilm XF1 review

 

The latest in Fujifilm's retro styled X series of premium-build compacts

Stylish retro appearance and lightweight aluminium build, fast/bright f/1.4 maximum aperture lens unusually boasts manual operation, high ISO12800 light sensitivity, fair pricing

Awkward means of activating the camera via manually extending the lens

This is a snapshot camera that is a cut above the rest, so should draw attention from snappers looking to upgrade as well as owners of bulkier cameras seeking a more pocket-friendly back up.
