The Fujifilm X10 and the White Discs of Doom at Digital Camera Resource Page

Fujifilm X-S1 review at Pocket-Lint

Wow, what a coincidence, almost all major reviews of the X-S1 have been posted within the past 48 hours. Pocket-Lint's review, is as always on the rather short side, no intricate iso-trains or elaborate comparison scripts here. Sort of, the TL:DR of reviews.

Fujifilm X-S1 review at Trusted Reviews

"Other physical controls and buttons are plentiful, allowing you to quickly access all sorts of regularly used settings without having to trawl through the in-camera menu. On the whole these controls are well spaced and quite easy to reach. In addition to all the pre-assigned buttons that access things like ISO, White Balance and Flash settings there are also two Function buttons that can be assigned as you see fit. . . . read more

Fujifilm X-S1 Review at Photography Blog

Spoiler: as far as image quality go, this is the best 'superzoom' or 'bridge' camera ever...so far. Fujifilm really made a coup with this one. It combines a larger than usual 2/3" sensor, DSLR like reaction/lag times and the usual bridge superzoom (24-624mm lens) capabilities packed into one big body: . . . read more

Fujifilm X-Pro1 ISO better than Canon EOS 5D mark II?

Pompous title? I thought so myself, but after spending 10 minutes with a loupe and a bunch of full sized jpeg images taken with a X-Pro1 i truly stand behind my statement.  The X-Pro1 images in question are unprocessed jpegs taken at the launch event of the Romanian store 'f64' . . . read more

Fujifilm posts Q3/2011 earnings: more than 100.000 x100 sold, and more.

Overall, it is not such a gloomy report. Fujifilm came out as one of the least affected among the major major Japanese companies from the tsunami/nukepoof incident, and the Thailand floods.
