Fuji XF1 Hands-On

Fuji XF1

The Fuji XF1 is the latest X-Series point and shoot camera.  It features a retro-style that’s as much of what defines the camera as technical features like the 12MP EXR CMOS sensor and f/1.8 lens.

The XF1 is certainly a pretty camera, and those specs put it near the top of point and shoot models around. The prints from the XF1 that I saw at PhotoPlus looked solid, which is promising for a camera as pretty as this one. [Read more...]

Fuji XF1 Specs and Price Leak Out, RAW Capture Confirmed

Fuji XF1

The Fuji XF1 is the latest in the X-Series lineup and set to be announced later tonight (or early morning).  Most of the details on the new camera, however, have already leaked out via Samy’s Camera (although Samy’s appears to have removed those specs as of now).

The Fuji XF1 will feature a 12MP 2/3-inch CMOS sensor and optical image stabilization on its 4x zoom lens (25-100mm equivalent).  The lens offers a variable aperture of f/1.8-4.9 . . . so, very bright on the wide end.  Other features include full HD video capture and 360-degree panoramic images.

Some great news is that the XF1 will offer RAW capture.  Earlier spec leaks/rumors did not mention RAW capture, which cause some concern among enthusiasts.  So, kudos to Fuji for putting this important feature in this new X-Series shooter. [Read more...]
