I’ve had the X-E1 for a little while, courtesy of Fuji and Photo Techniques Magazine. I’m working on an article for the magazine, and I thought I’d share a few thoughts along the way:
First Impressions, Fuji X-E1:
- A very lightweight camera body, due in part to its largely magnesium-based construction.
- Controls are well-placed on the camera body.
- LCD-based menus require some studying of the instruction manual.
- LCD is bright and easy to read, even outdoors.
- Camera automatically switches from LCD view to electronic viewfinder.
- Image quality is very good (more on this later).
- RAW processing software is subject of debate (more on this later).
- The 18-55 kit lens provided with this camera exceeded expectations.
Here’s an image taken to test resolution and color:
