Fujifilm X-E1 Review | J R BERNSTEIN

Fujifilm X-E1 Review | J R BERNSTEIN | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it


If you have read my Fujifilm X-Pro1 review (which, by now, you should have), you’ll know that I was very impressed. So going into this review, and knowing what I knew of the camera, I was somewhat sceptical of the X-E1 living up to my demands. (SPOILER ALERT!) Sadly, I have to confess that my fears were not completely unfounded. In short, the X-E1 is not the camera for me. I’d rather just pony-up the extra $400 to get the X-Pro1. To me, the X-E1 is missing of bit of the magic that the X-Pro1 has. While a little quirky, the X-Pro1 is a splendid camera to use.  The saving-grace of the X-Pro1 is its brilliant hybrid viewfinder. It makes every other minor quibble…well, minor.  But, without the hybrid viewfinder, I found the overall experience of the X-E1 less to my liking......

Conclusion

While I might not love the X-E1 like I do the X-Pro1, it’s hard not to at least like it. After all, it performs like a champ, uses the same great range of Fujinon XF lenses as the X-Pro1, is small and light-weight, and looks like a million bucks! For some people, I think the X-E1 is probably the perfect compromise  It has most of the same professional features as the X-Pro1, but is a smaller, lighter, more consumer-friendly package, and would certainly be a welcome gift by any photo enthusiast.....

I think you do it a disservice by dismissing it as a gift...

Fashion Week with the Fujifilm X-Pro1 – Review | J.R. Bernstein

Fashion Week with the Fujifilm X-Pro1 – Review | J.R. Bernstein | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

 

Since its introduction, and particularly after having reviewed the Fujifilm X10 last March in New York City, I had been looking forward to trying out the X-Pro1, and Toronto Fashion Week seemed like the perfect opportunity to put this camera through its paces. I wanted to know how it would compare with other rangefinder cameras that I’ve used, and also how it would compare to a professional DSLR.

Seeing as I don’t shoot from the media pits when I’m at Fashion Week, and I tend to mingle and attend all sorts of events, both on-site and off-site (ie. after-parties), I was really looking forward to a smaller camera that would more easily fit in with the crowd, and something that doesn’t weigh a ton — there’s nothing quite as awkward as having to swap hands and put down a load of gear, just to shake someone’s hand. But, that said, I can’t sacrifice image quality when any number of my images might be published by a variety of outlets. And to top it off, what could be more fashionable than a black retro-styled camera, to go along with the rest of my Fashion Week attire?
