Fuji X-E1

Available Today

The Fuji X-E1 is the second mirrorless camera offering from Fuji. Think of it as the Fuji X-Pro1’s baby brother, featuring the same 16MP APS-C X-Trans CMOS sensor. Where it differs is the viewfinder offering. While the X-Pro1 included Fuji’s hybrid optical viewfinder technology, as well as an electronic viewfinder, the X-E1 foregoes the hybrid and just includes a 2.36 million dot OLED electronic viewfinder with a built-in diopter.

The classic designed camera body is made of magnesium alloy, providing a very sturdy build. The 2.8" 460K dot rear LCD allows for easy setting adjustment and image review, but is a bit lower quality than the X-Pro1 . Improved contrast detection means improved autofocus performance, with its 6 fps high speed continuous mode allowing you to shoot in burst. From a control and settings standpoint, the X-E1 is nearly the same as its big brother but adds a built-in pop-up flash for use in very poorly lit conditions. Another addition is a 3.5mm mic input jack, allowing you to use an external microphone when recording video. Video specs otherwise are identical to the X-Pro1, with full HD 1080P at 24fps, recorded in H.264 (MOV) with stereo sound.

This camera is quite the deal. You’re essentially getting a mini X-Pro1 in terms of size and image quality, an improved EVF without the hybrid optical option (wasn’t a fan), and better autofocus performance. Between the two, I prefer X-E1.
