Review summary from DPReview

Street photography with mirrorless cameras
DPReview Gold Award March 2013
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.
Andy Westlake Andy Westlake


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.

Product Description

Color:Silver  |  Style:Body Only

Product Description

The compact X-E1 is engineered to deliver extraordinary image quality. It starts with FUJIFILM's proprietary 16.3 APS-C X-Trans 2/3-Inch CMOS sensor whose unique pixel array is designed to deliver unsurpassed image resolution and color accuracy. Choose from the newly expanded XF Lens lineup with two new bright, high-definition FUJINON X-Mount lenses including a 14mm F2.8 and an 18-55mm F2.8-F4 lens. The 18-55mm allows photographic flexibility, optimizes low-light shooting and coupled with the EXR Processor Pro, the X-E1 delivers high performance auto - focusing. Everything you need in one compact, beautiful camera system.

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 a

highly 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.

* Depending on the shooting conditions.                                                                                   




An analog interface allowing you to check settings at a glance.

  • Settings can be checked even when the camera is off.
  • High precision parts provide just the right amount of torque and resistance when clicking the dials thereby allowing you to get suitable response when photographing.
  • Interface enabling settings to be changed while looking through the viewfinder.
  • With the exposure dial and shutter speed controlled with the right hand and the aperture ring controlled with the left, the X-E1 enables you to change settings instinctively by feel without looking up from the viewfinder.
  • Being able to change settings in an instant means you won't miss that “perfect shot”.
  • High-rank, high quality design.
  • Beautiful Magnesium Die-Cast Top and Front Cover - Stylish Yet Stron
  • “Made in Japan” Premium Quality


The built-in flash corresponds to GN7*.

You can make your subject stand out using the flash, such as the daytime synchro when the sun is in front of you or the capture light when photographing people.

By combining the superior highly sensitive performance of the X-E1 with highly sensitive settings you can achieve high resolution with little noise by compensating for the amount of light present.

From assist lamps to full flash the X-E1 will broaden the horizon of your photography.

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.

I've only had my X-E1 a couple days so I won't write a book here, well maybe I will :). I also own the Olympus E-M5 and had the NEX-7 so I can compare this Fuji to it's competition a bit here. To the point, this X-E1 takes BEAUTIFUL pictures.. They are so nice even just browsing the thumbnails on my computer, this X-E1 is standing out as something special vs my NEX-7 and E-M5 to a degree. I find getting around on the X-E1 is super quick MUCH better than the Nex7,and the X-E1 is quite intuitive to use. The EVF is excellent, as good or better than the Nex7's and I have not noticed any lag despite a few people saying the X-E1 EVF refresh rate is slower than the NEX's EVF. I just haven't noticed any problem at all about it. The lcd screen looks just fine...great color, yes less pixel density than say a Nex or E-M5 but more accurate which is better? Accurate color or more pixels..I prefer accurate color! I currently have the 1.4 / 35mm lens so that's what I am using for my review by the way.

Focus speed is pretty quick..also owning an X100 I'd say this is a bit quicker to a lot quicker to focus overall. I'd also say YES, it can hunt a bit in lower light. Manual focus actually works WELL this is a Fuji?..though if it had the Sony PEAKING type feature, that would be helpful. Unlike the x100 you don't need turn the focus ring forever. You can see a magnified view of your target, and it's clear enough thru the wonderful EVF that just slightly turning the focus ring will get you superb focus..even in VERY low light, if auto is hunting too much. I may rarely use this feature but the built in stitch panorama feature works INCREDIBLY well, BETTER than the Sony Nex7 I am surprised!.

This camera is made for photographers. I love having direct access to anything I want to adjust. It's lightweight and I can carry all three of my lenses with it in a small messenger bag easily. And the lenses! Most of the other mirrorless camera makers have a few crappy lenses and a few good ones. Not Fuji. I have all three current primes and they are all superb.

People complain about the auto focus speed. I've never minded it. Sure it's not as fast as a SLR. But I'm always pre-focusing or manually setting the focus by distance etc. Even in SLRs I do this. I prefocus and wait for the moment. Or as an example of another trick, for my kids, I might set the focus to 5 feet manually, make sure my aperture gives me enough depth of field, and follow them around the playground composing and shooting at arm's length. Works great for action shots.

The image quality is second to only full frame cameras. Detail and ISO performance are amazing. ISO 6400 is other cameras' 800. So you're getting faster, cleaner, sharper shots. And lastly, but maybe best of all, is the dynamic range. It's huge. And somehow Fuji can translate that dynamic range to jpeg files in camera! So you don't even need to shoot raw files. Which is good because it's taking Adobe forever to figure out Fuji's sensor.

I am a long time professional photographer and have yearned for a small, light weight interchangeable lens camera for many years. Wanted something that would shoot a raw file and that produced an image that rivals my pro level DSLR. I have the X-E1 coupled with the 35mm f/1.4 prime. Absolutely love this set-up. It easily fits in my backpack and I can make large prints of any image it creates. Love the "old school" positioning of shutter speed on the top dial and aperture settings on the lens barrel.
It really is a dream come true.

Style Name: Body OnlyColor: Black Verified Purchase
I've owned many, many camera and this is the best. I purchased the X-Pro1 last Spring and also love it. However, over the years I've been moving towards smaller, lighter, high-image-quality cameras and simplifying my kit. I found that I very seldom used the Optical Mode of the Viewfinder in the X-Pro1. That finder design adds size and weight to the Pro1. So, when this came to market I bought one. It is 22 percent lighter than the Pro1, smaller, has exactly the same capabilities (menus, controls, IQ) in a smaller, lighter, lower cost package. Also, the Electronic Viewfinder is much improved over the Pro1 and Fuji added a Pop-Up flash. Now I can use the Pop-Up in Commander Mode to fire my off-camera flash. I'm using this camera with Fuji's 35mm f1.4 which is a superb lens. Soon I'll order the 18-55mm and expect that will complete my kit, meeting all my needs. I highly recommend this for photographer who don't shoot sports.

Style Name: Body OnlyColor: Black
As a former Leica shooter (I moved to Nikon when I decided to go digital and the Leica M offering was a horror), I can't say enough good things about the X-E1.

Since purchasing it last year, my Nikon gear gets less and less use. High ISO performance for an APS-C sensor camera is nothing short of amazing. I can now shoot at ISO 1600 (when needed) and not have to deal with gobs of "noise". My Nikon D300 gets pretty noisy by ISO 800.

Although I could go on and on, suffice it to say that my Nikon gear is about one step away from being put up for sale. What's holding me back is the lack of an X mount macro lens in the 100mm range. The 60mm Fujifilm macro doesn't go 1:1 and it's too short for my tastes. I also have some issues with Fuji's lenses seeming to grow in size. My 23mm (great lens optically) is really too large for a camera this size and the new 56mm is off the charts size-wise.

What I loved about Leica was the small size of the vast majority of its lenses and I was hoping that Fuji would try to keep things small to take advantage of the mirrorless concept.
