Review: Fujifilm X-S1

03/25, 10:30pm

Fujifilm X-S1 gets our full examination

Fujifilm's expansion of its X series cameras has turned almost into a tuning project: it's taking virtually every class of camera the company makes and giving it a better sensor, premium optics, and advanced control. The X-S1 applies that formula to superzoom cameras, bringing new glass and an EXR sensor to a very long 26X lens. In our review of the Fujifilm X-S1, we'll see if it's an ideal match or if it's reaching too far into DSLR territory.

Hands-on: Fujifilm X-Pro1 camera

We try Fujifilm's interchangeable X-Trans camera

Electronista staff had the opportunity to try Fujifilm's X-Pro1 here on the CES show floor and have so far come away impressed.
