Fujifilm X-T1 | Tim Moynihan by Wired | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

Most mirrorless cameras are happy being smaller, beginner-friendly, somewhat less-capable alternatives to DSLRs. But the Fujifilm X-T1 has a different goal in mind: It’s built to replace a DSLR camera entirely. Indeed, it’s hard to think of a camera that’s come closer. While there is perhaps no perfect size for any type of camera, the X-T1 feels just about right for what it can do. It’s big enough for a sizeable hand grip with textured rubber and all the knobs necessary for manual adjustments, but small enough to be more portable than a DSLR. Keep in mind that the X-T1 is closer in size to a DSLR, though. Forget about putting it in your pocket. Along with satisfying proportions, the X-T1 is built to withstand the elements with a weather-sealed body that operates down to 14 degrees Fahrenheit. It’ll keep out dust and sand, and shoot in the rain. Like many recent Fujifilm cameras, the X-T1 will appeal to photographers who like taking control. Almost everything is up front and easy to access. There are dials up top for ISO, shutter speed, and exposure compensation. Levers under those dials and on the front of the camera let you toggle shooting, metering, and focus modes. There are buttons all over the camera to lock focus and exposure, enable focus-assist features, and adjust the camera’s display settings. Six—six!—buttons are customizable, and the excellent Function Setting menu ensures you don’t get lost: It provides a map of each button’s setting and lets you change each function on the fly.......

The Fujifilm X100S is the camera you want without even knowing it.

Sure, for an aspiring photographer, the lure of a DSLR can be strong. But when faced with a massive array of lenses and their exceeding bulk, that temptation can quickly turn into intimidation. The ease of use and always-with-you nature of your average smartphone doesn’t do the DSLR any favors either. That’s what’s so great about the X100S: It hits that elusive sweet spot between DSLR quality and point-and-shoot portability. Styled after rangefinder cameras of yore, the X100S is both lighter and smaller than your average full-frame shooter. It’s also infinitely easier to handle. Even better, you’ll get nearly DSLR quality photos. That’s accomplished thanks to a APS-C 16.3 MP X-Trans CMOS II sensor, which while smaller than a full-frame sensor, is about same size you’d find in an entry-level DSLR from Canon or Nikon. It’s kinda scary how great the images are coming from this tiny little camera. They’re exceedingly crisp (even up to 1600 ISO), they displayed very little noise, and coupled with the lack of OLPF and Fuji’s new X-Trans Color Filter, they’re also less prone to moire patterns.....
