Great design and button layout, although I wish the dials didn't have the lock button in the centre. Image quality is great (I use the 18-55mm f2.8). The high ISO is a little noisy but still good. Super light-weight for the number of features.
Purchased at Camera Electronics Service Company.
Excellent mirrorless camera
Last year I purchased a Fujifilm X-T1 mirrorless camera to use while travelling around. I've only ever used my DSLR while travelling, and being a full frame camera accompanied by a large piece of glass on the front (the lens), it often became very weighty on long trips. Being a DSLR user most of time, I was very apprehensive about the quality achieved by a mirrorless camera. But now, after a lot of new advancements in digital photography technology, mirrorless cameras are almost 'on par' for quality. But I'm not writing this review to point out...useless facts about mirrorless cameras in general, no. I am writing this review to give others another opinion to consider if they are considering buying a Fujifilm X-T1. Here are a few points/features of the camera that I have chosen to review. Build Quality: is excellent. Retro styling looks great. Ease of use: Setting dials are comfortable to use, standard menu functions. The one con I found was with the quick access menu. If you press the incorrect button it exits back to the shooting screen. This can be a bit frustrating when trying to set up the camera. Image Quality: quite good. Images are very sharp. I found that it did struggle a bit in low light situations compared to my DSLR, creating a bit more noise in some photos. Weight: great compared to an SLR. With a lens attached it weighs about the same as my SLR's body by itself. Great camera for travelling. View finder: very crisp and clear. Had to adjust the brightness a bit as it was giving me a false sense of how bright the scene was that I was photographing. Focusing: Excellent. I have only tried it with the lens that I have, so I'm not sure how it would perform with others. But seems good.
Fuji stand behind their product with excellent service
While travelling in South America, I dropped my 5 month old Fuji XT-1 camera and damaged the electronic viewfinder. Fortunately the display screen at the back of the camera kept working and I was able to take over 5,000 shots during the next four weeks.
On return, I contacted Fujifilm service in Sydney. Spoke to a service receptionist who immediately put me through to a technician's phone. He was unavailable but rang me back promptly and after hearing the problem asked me to send in the camera so they could check it out. There would be no char...
