The much anticipated Fujifilm X-E1 arrived in Canada early last week and I’ve had mine for about 5 days not. I was hoping for some better weather on the west coast to take some better test shots, but it hasn’t stopped raining. A few days isn’t enough time with the X-E1 to warrant a complete review, but it’s about perfect to know if you’ll love or hate a camera. So there are some quick pros and cons.
- The X-E1 is smaller, and lighter I thought. When the specs were first published I thought the size would about the same as my Konica Hexar rangefinder. The Hexar has been my travel camera for years and I’ve been actively looking for a digital equivalent to replace it; I was ok having a camera of that size. Opening the box I found a camera much closer in size to my Canon Canonet. The X-E1 holds well, with buttons that don’t get in the way of shooting.
