GENERAL

The X-E1 was introduced by Fujifilm in September 2012. It belongs to the Mirrorless Cameras category.

Fujifilm is well-known and shouldn't require further introduction, please see our manufacturer's page for more digital cameras by Fujifilm.

SENSOR

The X-E1 features a CMOS X-TRANS sensor in APS-C size that has an area of approximately 24 x 16 mm² (0.93" x 0.61").

This infographic compares the X-E1's sensor to other common formats:

Infographic: X-E1 comparing sensor sizes

(The 1-Euro coin used for scale has a diameter of 23.25mm, slightly smaller than a US quarter.)

The X-E1's image sensor has an effective resolution of around 16 megapixel. That's roughly average and will be sufficient for most purposes. Photos with this resolution can easily be printed to A3 or A2 size.

The Fujifilm supports taking images in RAW. RAW images are stored as they come from the sensor, without any in-camera processing or sharpening. Converting to JPEG or other formats takes place on the computer, using software like Adobe Lightroom or Fujifilm's RAW converter. This involves one extra processing step but almost always results in superior image quality. Some filters, like converting to monochrome (black and white) will only yield decent results when used with RAW images.

The X-E1 does not have a mechanism for automatic sensor cleaning. Dust that collects on the sensor has to be removed with a blower or brush.

LENS

All compatible X-Bajonett lenses can be mounted to the X-E1.

Currently, approximately more than 25 X-Bajonett lenses are available, not counting lenses by third-party manufacturers. Further lenses can be connected via suitable adapters.

VIEWFINDER

The X-E1 uses an electronic viewfinder with a resolution of 2.36 megapixel, an excellent value for a viewfinder like this which makes the camera a joy to use.

The magnifcation is c. 0.62x, an above average value for an electronic viewfinder.

Simulated viewfinder X-E1

The infographic illustrates the viewfinder magnification of the X-E1. The black area represents a magnification of 1x, corresponding to natural size. The red frame indicates the largest viewfinder magnification in any digital camera on the market today (0.85x).

Tip: If the viewfinder image of the X-E1 is fuzzy, us the little wheel next to the viewfinder to adjust the sharpness.

SHUTTER

The X-E1's shutter speeds range from 1/4000s to 30s.

Max. shutter speed1/4000s
Min. shutter speed30s
SENSITIVITY

The X-E1's sensitivity goes from 200 ISO und 6400 ISO, a very useful and practical range.

Additionally, the Fujifilm's sensitivity can be boosted to 25600. However, ISO boosting will almost always lead to an increase in noise.

METERING

The X-E1 supports all common metering modes.

The Fujifilm will also allow spot metering, a must for challenging motives.

AUTO FOCUS

The X-E1's auto focus processor uses 49 AF points (or sensors). A basic rule of thumb says that the more AF points you have, the better. More AF points mean a better chance to have a point at the location of interest in a scene, a big plus in challenging situations (e.g. when panning the camera).

Manual focus is also possible with the Fujifilm, a plus in tricky situations or for some creative freedom.

TypeContrast Detection

FLASH

The X-E1 features a built-in flash with a range of up to 7m (23 ft.). That range will work for most situations.

A flash or a trigger for remote flashes can be attached to the Fujifilm's hotshoe. Very useful for indirect flashes or for trigggering remote flashes.

DISPLAY
X-E1 display

The X-E1 features a monitor with a diagonal of 71.00mm (2.8 in.) and a resolution of c. 0.46 megapixel. That rather low resolution is no longer state of the art and will make it difficult to evaluate images on the display.

Unfortunately, the X-E1's monitor is not articulated. That can make it tricky to frame your subject in some situations, e.g. when taking selfies.

The X-E1 does not feature a touch screen.

VIDEO

When recording videos with the X-E1, the highest supported resolution is 1920 x 1080 pixel, in other words Full HD Video. 4K videos are not supported by the Fujifilm.

The camera features a connector for an external microphone, a neccessity for good video sound. A built-in mike will record everything in front and to the sides of the camera which is mostly not desired. Internal microphones also tend to record camera sounds like focus beeps.

CONNECTIVITY & WIRELESS

Built-in wireless connectivity is not available with the Fujifilm. You will need appropriate accessories to wirelessly transfer images between camera and smartphone.

However, the camera can be controlled over a wired connection.

Connect the Fujifilm to a monitor or TV set over HDMI.

The Fujifilm connects to your PC over USB 2.0.

STORAGE

What memory cards can be used with the Fujifilm X-E1?

The camera will accept all common SD HC and SD XC cards.

With an average image size of 8 megabytes (JPEG, fine) a 32 GByte memory card would hold up to 4000 images.

MISC. FUNCTIONS

Let's have a look at some other features of the Fujifilm X-E1:

The X-E1 doesn't have a built-in GPS receiver. If you want to add coordinates to your photos, you'll have to do so in 3rd party software like Adobe Lightroom.

The X-E1 doesn't have a built-in stabilizer. That would have been a plus when using legacy zooms or tele lenses without stabilizer.

A nice addition is the Fujifilm's electronic level. The camera displays an indicator on the monitor that makes it super-easy to level the camera horizontally, very useful when doing architectural photography.

The camera has a built-in function to facilitate creating panoramas: While panning the Fujifilm over the scene, the camera takes a sequence of images which are then automatically assembled to form a panorama.

If you are into HDRs, the camera won't create those automatically. You will have to manually create image sequences and later assemble those sequnces in third-party software.

The X-E1 is not environmentally sealed against dust and moisture; keep that in mind in the rain and on the beach.

BATTERY

The Fujifilm X-E1 works with a NP-W126 LiIon battery. The battery lifetime is a generous 350 shots. Usually enough for a full day or more.

The battery can not be charged while in camera. Instead you have to take it out of the camera and put it into the supplied dedicated charger.

DIMENSIONS

The Fujifilm X-E1's dimensions are 129 x 74.9 x 38.3mm³. (5.1" x 2.9" x 1.5"). That's the body only, without lens. The camera's weight is a reasonable 300 grams (9.7 oz.). Add to this the weight of the lens.

SIZE COMPARISON

To put the size of the camera in context, here it is next to a typical ID card (c. 86mm x 55mm, about the size of a credit card).
