From the Manufacturer

                        



                                                                                                                                                                                                       

Introducing the X-E1 from Fujifilm                                                                                                                      








                                                                                                                                                                                     


X-Trans CMOS Sensor - Enabling high quality imaging

Equipped with a large APS-C size sensor the resolving and descriptive power of the Fujinon lens can be maximized thereby enabling high resolution over the entire screen. 

Achievement of Superb High Resolution, High Sensitivity & Impressive “Bokeh” Effect

The X-E1's sensor adopts the same high-performance 16M X-Trans CMOS found in the X Series flagship X-Pro1 model. Featuring an originally developed color filter array with ahighly random pixel arrangement, its X-Trans CMOS sensor eliminates the need for an optical low-pass filter, which is used in conventional systems to inhibit moiré at the expense of resolution. The innovative array lets the X-Trans CMOS sensor capture unfiltered light from the lens and produce unprecedented resolution. The unique random arrangement of the color filter array is also highly effective in enhancing noise separation in high-sensitivity photography. Another advantage of the large APS-C sensor is the ability to create a beautiful “bokeh” effect - the aesthetic out-of-focus effect created when shooting with a shallow depth of field.


Standard Range to ISO6400 and Extended Range to ISO25600

Featuring a large APS-C sensor and with the elimination of an optical low-pass filter, Fujifilm's X-Trans CMOS takes advantage of its high-sensitivity performance to deliver a standard range up to ISO6400. No matter when or where the shutter opportunity arises, you can depend on its high-sensitivity image quality to defeat blur caused by camera shake or subject motion. The X-E1's low-light capabilities are guaranteed to capture the moment beautifully.

  • High Resolution

In bright scenes, every detail from the leaves of the trees to a wisp of hair in a portrait is captured with exceptionally high resolution.

  • Wide Dynamic Range

In high contrast scenes, for example when shooting landscapes with a strong contrast between bright and dark areas, this technology reproduces the natural tonality in both highlights and shadow.

FILM SIMULATION - Explore the Nuances of Color.

Just like choosing the perfect film to match your creative direction, the X-E1 can simulate the color and tonal qualities of acclaimed film brands including the true-to-scene natural look of PROVIA, the vibrant tonality and saturated colors of Velvia and the silky soft look and beautiful skin tones of ASTIA. Film Simulation mode makes it simple to capture the expressive color quality of the rich legacy of Fujifilm photo film technology.

 

High-definition and high-luminance 2.36 M-dot “OLED electronic viewfinder”

By combining the best “OLED electronic viewfinder” in its class with FUJIFILM's original optical technology the X-E1 offers a bright, wide field of vision of which its entirety can be seen at a glance.

    “Natural Look” Electronic Viewfinder Debuts                                                                                       

  • The Fusion of FUJIFILM Optical Technology and a new 2.36M-dot Organic EL

Adopting an optical structure of two glass lenses and a double aspherical lens, the viewfinder provides a comfortable and natural view of the entire scene with an horizontal apparent field of view of 25°. FUJIFILM's optical engineers have achieved a distortion-free view with astounding edge-to-edge clarity and maintained an excellent field of vision even if the photographer's eye position shifts.

  • Diopter Adjustment Dial


The X-E1 offers a diopter correction dial that enables users to adjust the strength of the viewfinder in accordance with their eyesight. The dial is located on the side of the viewfinder and can be adjusted from -4m-1 - +2m-1 (dtp).

  • 2.36 M-dot Organic EL Panel

With approx. 2.36M dots of resolution and 100% coverage, the X-E1 display panel provides incredible detail to perfectly frame and focus your shots. The rich color expression of OLED technology and high contrast ratio of 1:5000* reflect exposure, white balance and film simulation settings with high fidelity, letting you confirm changes in real time.

The shutter time lag is only 0.05 sec, so you can capture the precise instant you wish to and enjoy a comfortable shooting experience.

High-speed Auto Focus with Lens-Sensor Contrast Detection

The highly agile linear motor in the XF18-55mm lens combined with the high-speed signal readout of the CMOS sensor and the EXR Processor Pro, achieves a huge leap in AF speed and precision performance. Contrast detection AF in the X-E1 brings your subject into sharp focus in as little as 0.1 sec* so you'll never miss a shot.

* Fujifilm research

Manual Focusing Methods

In the viewfinder, the distance index bar is displayed together with the depth of field scale and aperture value, providing helpful guides for focusing. For pinpoint precision in manual focus mode, just press the Command Dial and confirm sharpness with a zoom view of the focus point. This helpful function also features selectable zoom display ratios. And at a touch of the AE/AF Lock button, you activate the built-in Focus Aid function for automatic focusing of the subject in the focus frame.*

* Available only when using XF lenses.

AF Assist Lamp for Low-Light Scenes

In low-light settings where even the subject is hard to see through the viewfinder, the AF Assist Lamp illuminates the subject and assists Auto Focus.

Multiple Exposure

Add Artistry to Your Photographic Expression

In film cameras, multiple exposure is the photographic technique of superimposing one image on another by double exposing a single frame of film. Through advanced digital processing, X-E1 can simulate this technique, expanding your creative expression. Just select Multiple Exposure mode and take your first shot using either the EVF or LCD monitor. Next, while viewing the first image, you can frame and shoot the second exposure. This ability to precisely position and focus the second shot lets you not only “see” how the finished Multiple Exposure image will look, but also explore other creative photographic possibilities.

4:3 Aspect Ratio

The LCD's 4:3 aspect ratio provides a large screen to view the complete 3:2 image with ample room for display of shooting information outside the image frame.


Q (Quick Menu) Button

Fast Shortcut to Shooting Menu Settings

Skip directly to frequently used shooting menus with the Q (Quick Menu) button. ISO sensitivity setting, White Balance, Film Simulation and other frequently used shooting settings are displayed in a list. Just use the 4-way controller to select the item and the command dial to change settings for speedy operation while shooting.

In-camera RAW Converter

The built-in RAW data converter lets you view results in the field without first transferring the data to a PC. This easy-to-use feature not only takes into account exposure compensation, white balance and other in-camera image quality settings, but also lets you apply Film Simulation modes in the converter mode.

ISO100-25600 Sensitivity Setting Range

Expand the normal sensitivity range from ISO200-6400 to ISO100, 12800 or even ISO25600. In dynamic lighting conditions, you can now set a sensitivity ceiling within the range of ISO400-6400 and keep the camera on ISO Auto.

Exceptionally low noise even at high sensitivity.


From SLEEP to ON in 0.5 sec.

After turning OFF the power, the X-E1 enters a “sleep” mode (for a maximum of 24 minutes). If the power is turned ON during this time, the X-E1 “wakes up” instantly, reducing the normal startup time from 1.0 sec. to approx. 0.5 sec. ready for you to frame and capture the moment.

Exposure Control

Easy-to-use AE/AF Lock Button

Lock both exposure and focus for the subject by touching the special AE/AF Lock button conveniently placed in the upper area of the rear control panel. Using the setup menu, you can also set the button to lock only AE or AF.

Selectable Metering Modes

Swiftly select the best metering for your shot: “MULTI” for accurate response to a variety of lighting conditions, “SPOT” for precise reading of approximately 2% of the viewfinder area in the center of the screen, and “AVERAGE” for an average exposure setting for the entire scene.


FUJIFILM is pleased to announce the launch of two new models to the FUJINON XF Lens range bringing the total number of lenses available to five, offering much broader photographic appeal.

Another unique five lenses will be added in the line-up in early 2013, making the total to 10 lenses.

Review summary from DPReview

The X-E1 offers the X-Pro1's image quality in a smaller, more responsive package. Its intuitive dial-led interface makes it a rather desirable little camera.

Conclusion

The Fujifilm X-E1 is a fine camera, and a pleasure to use. Fujifilm's recent improvements to focusing, both manual and automatic, make a real difference to performance, the built-in EVF is excellent, and the enthusiast-friendly ergonomics are addictive. The only serious issue is the camera's video mode, which is sub-par, compared to the competition.

Reasons to buy

  • Excellent JPEGs, little need to shoot raw most of the time
  • Good color rendition with choice of 'film modes'
  • Dials for exposure controls allow for easy check of settings by glancing at the top deck

Things to consider

  • Relatively slow AF makes photographing children more difficult
  • Framerates in continuous shooting mode aren't completely consistent
  • Relatively low-resolution rear LCD compared to some peers
  • Auto ISO often chooses too slow a shutter speed

Suggested for

Any application requiring critical image quality - the X-E1 turns out excellent pictures.

Not suggested for

Movie mode and fast action shooting, where the camera's limitations do get in the way of results.

I have been a fan of Leica M7 with 50 mm Summilux for a decade. I have used a few digital cameras but nothing could replace my M7. My biggest discontent with digital cameras have been white balance and contrast -- no matter which camera I tried, I could never quite get the same perfect white balance and the natural and yet strong and beautiful contrast of film camera photography, especially those of M7 with Summilux. Digital photos almost always had the washed-out colors and weired color bias. I hesitated to invest in M9 because I did not believe, for right or wrong, it could quite deliver what M7 had delivered. Leica had never been known to be a pioneer in digital photography. I also tried the first digital Leica called Digilux some 9 years ago, which was a joke. Convenience means little if the quality is lacking; I would rather have 10 photos that I like than 100 photos that I do not like. So despite the efforts and costs of processing needed for a film camera, I kept on using my Leica M7.

Enter Fuji X-e1. After taking some photos, I blew them on my 60-inch PDP. Perfect. Perfect at ISO 4000. And what a contrast. Wow. As far as I know, this is as close to a film photo feel as a digital photo could get: white balance is impeccable, skin tones perfect, strong contrast, colors that sing, and no grains at ISO 4000! Hallelujah.

Another thing about this camera: JPG files are excellent. I hate keeping RAW files. They are big files taking up so much space and post processing is such a pain to me. With this camera, you can simply forget about shooting in RAW. JPGs are just as nice. Even after reducing the file size to a mere 40 KB for emailing purposes, your photo retains the color and beauty.

The EVF is awesome.

long story short...i shot with manual film cameras in the late 90's (im 34) just when the high and mighty, beastly, ugly laser canon torpedo-like gargantuan digital SLR's began to overtake the photography market...

I stopped shooting when film and developing materials became a financial burden...

the feel of dSLR's makes me feel like i'm going to blast anything and everything that comes into view when looking through it's viewfinder...i didn't care about the end result...the equipment (dSLR's) is EXTREMELY un-inspiring...for me.

If you've missed the feel of what a camera should feel like and act like...MANUAL CONTROLS!
aperture ring, shutter speed dial!!!! YES! Then this is for you!

who cares if it's slower than most in it's class and above and below...

art...takes time, understanding....it's a process...it's meditative....for me...

i don't know...so many people getting their first photography chops through dSLR's and the ease of use and the instant gratification...work less, produce more attitude...really know nothing about what camera felt like and did...

my good friend (NIKON D800 user) argued and fought with me tooth and nail when he said that the shutter speed dial on my X-E1 was the ISO...had no idea what a shutter speed dial was...never shot film a day in his life...been shooting for 7yrs weddings and all...

Listen...if you shot with film and want that physical feeling AND results...this is for you..

if you like to look like a pro and like all that technical BS with very little work and effort...NOT FOR YOU!

Thank you Fuji...after a nearly 15yr hiatus from shooting and photography...you have given me my love back...i'm a shooting again, learning again...

My search for the 'perfect' camera ended with the X-E1.

It all started when I saw a glowing review of X100S in a post by Zack Arias. He was very excited about it. I found many other reviews for x100s all over the internet, and all of them said how fantastic the camera was. Comments like 'best camera in the world', 'wow', 'fantastic colors', 'what a camera' appeared in practically every review. The number of superlatives used were unprecendented and I could find only a few negative but tolerant remarks mainly on the AF speed. Many reviews were from well established photographers. I got very curious. What is this camera, which is igniting such a following? Could Fuji be 'salting' the reviews and paying famous photographers to give a positive review? But then, can they influence so many of them? Seemed unlikely. I went to Amazon, my favourite place for trusted and unbiased reviews and again found raving reviews. I was hooked.

But the price $1,299 intimated me. Was a fixed lens camera, how ever good, worth that kind of money? My budget is scarce and I have a T3i/24-105 L for my work. If I sell my Canon gear will it fetch me enough to buy the x100s? And most importantly, can the x100s do everthing my current gear can do? All the talk about 'zoom with your feet and you will become a better photographer' is fine, but in reality when you are shooting for clients, there is little time to waste. I decided to reserch the Fuji X product line and see if there are other alternatives.

I found the X-E2. This seemed to be God sent because it was similar to the x100s but with interchangable lenses. But at that time it cost $1,400, $100 more than the x100s. It put me off and I decided to wait.
