Overview

Description by Fujifilm:

 

fujifilm-x-e1-rear-controls

The design of the X-E1 prioritizes “photographing”
The X-E1 employs numbered dials for aperture, shutter speed and exposure compensation and is equipped with a viewfinder that allows you to select your composition.
The design of the X-E1 resembles the cameras of the film age, and there is wisdom that has been passed down behind it. This gives the X-E1 commonality that transcends the ages.
The X-E1 is designed to enable you to “quickly” capture that moment you wish to document.

An analog interface allowing you to check settings at a glance.
Settings can be checked even when the camera is off.

High precision parts provide just the right amount of torque and resistance when clicking the dials thereby allowing you to get suitable response when photographing.

 

X-Trans CMOS Sensor - Enabling high quality imaging

Equipped with a large APS-C size sensor the resolving and descriptive power of the Fujinon lens can be maximized thereby enabling high resolution over the entire screen.

The X-E1's sensor adopts the same high-performance 16M X-Trans CMOS found in the X Series flagship X-Pro1 model. Featuring an originally developed color filter array with a highly random pixel arrangement, its X-Trans CMOS sensor eliminates the need for an optical low-pass filter, which is used in conventional systems to inhibit moiré at the expense of resolution.

Higher degree of randomness
with an array of 6 x 6 pixel units.

Standard Range to ISO6400 and Extended Range to ISO25600
The innovative array lets the X-Trans CMOS sensor capture unfiltered light from the lens and produce unprecedented resolution. The unique random arrangement of the color filter array is also highly effective in enhancing noise separation in high-sensitivity photography. Another advantage of the large APS-C sensor is the ability to create a beautiful “bokeh” effect - the aesthetic out-of-focus effect created when shooting with a shallow depth of field.

Featuring a large APS-C sensor and with the elimination of an optical low-pass filter, Fujifilm's X-Trans CMOS takes advantage of its high-sensitivity performance to deliver a standard range up to ISO6400.

No matter when or where the shutter opportunity arises, you can depend on its high-sensitivity image quality to defeat blur caused by camera shake or subject motion. The X-E1's low-light capabilities are guaranteed to capture the moment beautifully.

Wide Dynamic Range
In high contrast scenes, for example when shooting landscapes with a strong contrast between bright and dark areas, this technology reproduces the natural tonality in both highlights and shadow.

FILM SIMULATION - Explore the Nuances of Color.
Just like choosing the perfect film to match your creative direction, the X-E1 can simulate the color and tonal qualities of acclaimed film brands including the true-to-scene natural look of PROVIA, the vibrant tonality and saturated colors of Velvia and the silky soft look and beautiful skin tones of ASTIA. Film Simulation mode makes it simple to capture the expressive color quality of the rich legacy of Fujifilm photo film technology.

High-definition and high-luminance 2.36M-dot “OLED electronic viewfinder”
By combining the best “OLED electronic viewfinder” in its class with FUJIFILM's original optical technology the X-E1 offers a bright, wide field of vision of which its entirety can be seen at a glance.

Fujifilm X-E1 OLED viewfinder.

Adopting an optical structure of two glass lenses and a double aspherical lens, the viewfinder provides a comfortable and natural view of the entire scene with an horizontal apparent field of view of 25°. FUJIFILM's optical engineers have achieved a distortion-free view with astounding edge-to-edge clarity and maintained an excellent field of vision even if the photographer's eye position shifts.

2.36M-dot Organic EL Panel
With approx. 2.36M dots of resolution and 100% coverage, the X-E1 display panel provides incredible detail to perfectly frame and focus your shots. The rich color expression of OLED technology and high contrast ratio of 1:5000* reflect exposure, white balance and film simulation settings with high fidelity, letting you confirm changes in real time.

Full HD Movies with Cinema-like Image Quality
Shoot Full HD movies (1920 x 1080) at 24fps, the same frame rate used for cinema films. In addition to using Monochrome or other Film Simulation modes to enhance your artistic expression, you can take full advantage of the combination of X-E1's large sensor and bright XF lenses to capture movies with a large and beautiful defocused “bokeh” background. Connect stereo microphones (commercially sold) to the microphone connector to record audio with enhanced clarity and presence.

Motion Panorama
Capture Panorama Shots and Show Them in Stunning Large-size Prints
Just sweep the camera across the scene, and the X-E1 captures multiple images and seamlessly stitches them together to form a single panorama photo. Even when enlarged to an A3-size print, there is virtually no loss of resolution. Holding the camera horizontally or vertically, Motion Panorama lets you shoot the scene with an “M” or “L” angle of view.

The compact X-E1 is equipped with an internal flash.
The built-in flash corresponds to GN7*.
You can make your subject stand out using the flash, such as the daytime synchro when the sun is in front of you or the capture light when photographing people.

fujifilm-x-e1-builtin-flash
By combining the superior highly sensitive performance of the X-E1 with highly sensitive settings you can achieve high resolution with little noise by compensating for the amount of light present.
From assist lamps to full flash the X-E1 will broaden the horizon of your photography.
* ISO200 · m

Selectable AF with a 49-point Metering Matrix
Within the screen, the auto focus area is divided into a 49-point matrix. AF accurately and swiftly recognizes the primary subject and brings it into crystal clear focus, and also lets you freely select the position of the AF frame. You can also change the AF frame size and pinpoint the focusing.

0.05-sec Shutter Time Lag
The shutter time lag is only 0.05 sec, so you can capture the precise instant you wish to and enjoy a comfortable shooting experience.

High-speed Auto Focus with Lens-Sensor Contrast Detection
The highly agile linear motor in the XF18-55mm lens combined with the high-speed signal readout of the CMOS sensor and the EXR Processor Pro, achieves a huge leap in AF speed and precision performance. Contrast detection AF in the X-E1 brings your subject into sharp focus in as little as 0.1 sec* so you'll never miss a shot.

* Fujifilm research

Manual Focusing Methods
In the viewfinder, the distance index bar is displayed together with the depth of field scale and aperture value, providing helpful guides for focusing. For pinpoint precision in manual focus mode, just press the Command Dial and confirm sharpness with a zoom view of the focus point. This helpful function also features selectable zoom display ratios. And at a touch of the AE/AF Lock button, you activate the built-in Focus Aid function for automatic focusing of the subject in the focus frame.*

* Available only when using XF lenses.

AF Assist Lamp for Low-Light Scenes
In low-light settings where even the subject is hard to see through the viewfinder, the AF Assist Lamp illuminates the subject and assists Auto Focus.

On the LCD, you can view not only the same image displayed in the electronic viewfinder, but also switch it to show a simple shooting information display.

Reviews

"The Fuji X-E1 may be the baby brother to Fuji's flagship X-Pro1, but in many ways is its equal. Most importantly, the two cameras share the same impressive 16.3-megapixel APS-C X-Trans CMOS sensor, which produces image quality superior to most APS-C-sensor-based digital SLRs, but in arguably more attractive camera body designs. The X-E1 is also significantly less expensive than its older sibling, while boasting many of the same features. We loved the X-E1's look, which marries the design of a classic rangefinder camera with a smart and sophisticated CSC. We wished the camera grip was larger and more comfortable; it's not a great camera to handhold over long periods of time, but if you're just going out for a day of street shooting, it should be fine. The Fuji X-E1's polycarbonate-and-magnesium build make it quite light and highly portable, especially when compared to the X-Pro1. The X-E1's shutter button, which has a nice old-school look to it (minus the film winder), unfortunately is mushy to press and doesn't feel very responsive.

"The Fujifilm X-E1 is the second of the company's mirrorless compact system cameras to use the X-mount and the 16 Megapixel X-Trans CMOS sensor debuted in the groundbreaking X-Pro 1. It's smaller and less expensive than the X-Pro 1 but lacks one of its key selling points - the hybid optical / electronic viewfinder. But in most other respects the X-E1 offers the same, and in some cases a better level of features and functions as the flagship model, making it a great buy for anyone who loved the X-Pro 1, but couldn't afford it.

Just after Adobe enhances its support for the Fujifilm X-Trans sensor based cameras with the updated Lightroom and ACR versions, comes DPreview's verdict on the X-E1. A very interesting read, even though parts of it comes from the previously published X-Pro1 review:

"Overall, we really enjoyed shooting with the Fujifilm X-E1, and I'm very pleased with the images I got out of it. The camera crashed on occasion (it wouldn't be a new X-series camera if it didn't have some bugs...), leaving buttons unresponsive, and focus and exposure sometimes delivered odd results, but powering off usually cleared the error.

Philip Ryan tests the camera together with the XF 18-55mm kit lens:

"The Fujifilm X-E1 is a great addition to the company’s line of premium ILCs. Rangefinder diehards might miss the optical finder provided in the X-Pro1, but given that this isn’t a true rangefinder, we were perfectly okay with the X-E1’s EVF. It’s wonderfully crisp, bright, and gives you a good preview of the effects of setting changes. Its refresh rate could be quicker—you’ll notice a bit of stuttering on fast pans—and we wish it didn’t black out during bursts, but it’s among the best electronic finders out there. We’d say Sony’s OLED finders are the only ones that are appreciably better.

Christian Rudman reviewed the camera with the Fujinon 18-55mm kit lens. Unfortunately no full-sized image samples are provided with the review.

"This camera is yet another worthy installment in the X-Series of cameras that Fujifilm is producing. While my personal favorite remains the X-Pro1 for its innovative hybrid viewfinder combined with the interchangeable lens mount, this camera I hold in high regards and appreciate the cost savings of $700 (before they started discounting the X-Pro1). However, if you are pairing this camera with a legacy lens that would be focused manually and using the EVF, I would much prefer the X-E1 over the X-Pro1 for its much improved EVF. The pop-up flash is a nice touch, especially since the articulating arm allows you to bounce the flash vertically (I mentioned this in the First Impressions article on this camera).

Martin provides many full frame image (with intact EXIF) samples along with his review. 

"What I don't like about Fujifilm are their outrageous advertising claims. Sometimes I almost feel ashamed in my honor as an engineer :-) Firstly, there are the exaggeration in the indicated ISO values, cheating of the auto-exposure at high ISO settings and an Auto-ISO function that is constantly using too low ISO levels. With all these measures, Fuji apparently tries to improve noise performance test results.

Then there are untenable statements on the effects of an anti-alias filter. "... Sensor with a unique, highly randomized,

"The Fuji X-E1 is a great successor to the X-Pro1. It keeps the highly tactile interface and unique 16 megapixels X-Trans CMOS sensor while improving in key areas. The more compact design is critical to success among a growing number of mirrorless cameras, plus the new ultra-high-resolution 2.4 megapixels EVF makes for an exceptional usability at eye-level. Image quality of the Fuji X-E1 is top-notch and exceeds all non-Fuji mirrorless cameras. Image noise is virtually inexistent until ISO 3200 and only slowly progresses without the usual added softness of noise-reduction. The output of this camera is completely usable for mid-size prints until ISO 25600. Sharpness is reasonably good with the Fuji Fujinon XF 18-55mm

Just remember that you can buy ALL currently available Fujinon primes + the X-E1 body and come up with less money than needed  for the RX1 + viewfinder. While this is a quick review, it covers the essentials and is straight to the point.  Initially there's was some readers' uproar about the usage of Lightroom converted RAW files by Steve (X-E1 raws+Lightroom=meh), but then he posted a couple of OOC Jpegs and everybody went "oooh!"

"The RX1 JPEGS are much sharper than the Fuji’s and have that more “robust” look to them as well. As for AF speed, the Sony and Fuji are about the same with AF speed after the new Fuji firmware update of the body and lens and both seem to lock on well in my low light tests (see video above). After shooting them both and handling them both and processing files from both, for me the winner is the Sony. I much prefer the feel, build and lens on the Sony RX1. I also enjoy almost limitless DR and amazing sharpness in my files. I love the shallow DOF and the “Zeiss Pop” from the RX1 and with the Gariz case on my personal camera it feels like a work of art.

After Diglloyd, Thom Hogan is the second one of the 'heavy guns' reviewers to discover serious image quality issues on the X-E1. But Their opinion is contrasted by the myriad of others, some of which swear by this camera, and many of them have the images to back up their claim. So, who's right and who's wrong? Are Diglloyd and Hogan just nitpicking, or is their point of reference too far removed from the X-E1 league? Thom has been surrounded by High-end Nikons for decades, and Diglloyd, well, some dub him a Leica fanatic.

Ultimately it is up to one's individual eye and taste to decide what's really good and worthy. Also of note, the image quality issues refer mostly to RAW files, a known fact since most of the top players (Adobe, Apple, Acdsee, Phase one, DXO) in the image processing field have proper-or any support for Fuji's raw format:

"So how do I feel about my new cameras? Well I’m delighted with both of them, but for different reasons. I was more or less able to predict how the XE1 would perform based on my ownership and love for my existing X cameras and my familiarity with the brand. But the OMD was something of a revelation, I really didn’t expect a micro 4/3 camera to produce images which were often difficult to distinguish from those of the Fuji, even in low light.

There really is very little between them. Fuji grain is quite fine and the images are very smooth, but you really only

"So why the Fuji X-E1 then?

- This might sound crazy to a lot of people, but one of the first reasons why I ended up choosing the X-E1 is because that camera just looks beautiful. It smells like photography, It’s like it’s calling you to take it with you and go shoot something! Whether ugly tools are as good as nice looking ones to craft beautiful art is a tough question, I’ll leave it up to you  All I know is that the form of this camera is almost inspiring.

"We've had our hands on a production X-E1 for a few weeks now, and our first impressions are that Fujifilm's promises aren't idle. Autofocus is quicker and more-responsive, and the 'feel' of manual focus has certainly been improved. We're not convinced it can yet match the very best of its mirrorless peers, but Fujifilm has made a step in the right direction, and that has to be applauded. Even more laudable is that fact that existing X-Pro1 owners got all the same benefits when firmware version 2.0 was made available.

Post date: 11/12/2012 - 18:36

"It's no surprise to see that the X-E1 handles noise just like the X-Pro1, shooting impeccable-quality images up to 3200 ISO. Shots taken at 6400 ISO can still feasibly be used too. At 12800 ISO (only available in Jpeg mode), noise becomes a bit more visible, but an 8" x 12" print (20 x 30 cm) will still hold up well with a good level of detail in the shot. All in all, Fuji has done a great job here.
The good news is that the lens is incredibly good! In fact, for taking wide-angle photos, you're better off using the X-E1

"Users can expect the best noise-free images from ISO 100 all the way to 800. From ISO 1,600, some noise starts to creep into images but details remain intact. When you venture beyond ISO 3,200, quality is still pretty good although you'll notice a scattering of grain. ISO 12,800 was the tipping point for us. We were quite impressed by the X-E1's lowlight performance and we think that shutterbugs who enjoy shooting in ambient light such as dark interiors would enjoy using this camera.

"Movies in Full HD 1920×1080 can be shot. While the AF seems to function quite well in movie mode you can’t shoot stills mid video. An unexpected joy (for this film born and bred feller) is the aperture ring set into the lens: as you roll it around, it’s a joy (with the 18-55mm zoom anyway) to see the lens aperture shrink down to f22! How many digicams will allow you that pleasure!

"While it might be tempting to think of the X-E1 as a stripped back X-Pro1, that does it something of a disservice in that the X-E1 is a great camera in its own right. Gifted with the same premium grade construction and finish, the X-E1 feels more refined and balanced than it’s more expensive sibling. While some may lament the removal of the hybrid viewfinder found in the X-Pro1, the truth is that the X-E1’s sharper, crisper EVF more than makes up for this, though the rear screen remains, at 2.8in and 460k-dots, somewhat underpowered for a camera of this price.

Focus speed and responsiveness is good, and the camera takes excellent photos with extremely impressive noise performance, with a good 18-55mm kit lens with built in optical image stabilisation. Although the price is still quite high compared to the competitors with many of them available for less money with kit lens. The X-E1 is available for £729 body only, which is good value for money, however, each Fujinon lens available is around £425+ so the

"Similar in size to the X100, and combined with a similar premium finish that won over so many fans to Fujifilm's retro-inspired compact, the X-E1 manages to feel more refined and balanced as soon as you pick it up compared to the rather chunky X-Pro1. And while it forgoes the smart Hybrid viewfinder of the X-Pro1, the payback is the sharper, crisper EVF in the X-E1 that more than makes up for this, though you could feel a little short-changed with the fairly underwhelming rear screen.

"I keep being impressed by the way the Fujifilm sensor renders skies and clouds. There’s a lot of detail in the RAW-files that can be recovered in post processing. I know there are still some issues with the Fuji files in Lightroom (4.2). Usually I don’t worry too much about it as the problems are barely noticeable unless you pixel peep. But in situations like with these pictures you sometimes get these white outlines around objects like the wind turbine on the right when you try to push the RAW file. If you ease back on the post-processing, it’s gone but I’m sure Adobe hasn’t unlocked the full potential of the Fuji RAW files yet. I hear Fuji and Adobe are working together on providing better results, let’s hope they get it right soon."

"The XE1 feels mature. I think Fuji has learned a lot over the last year from the release of the x100 and XPro1, and they’ve done a good job listening to feedback from the photographers out there using their cameras. Overall operational speed on the XE1 is good; not blazing fast like a high-end DSLR, but certainly fast enough for many of us. It’s less fiddly than the x100 (keeping in mind I’ve enjoyed the x100 immensily!), and from what I hear from XPro1

"We take a look at Fuji's latest "X camera" - the X-E1. It looks like the X-Pro1 because it is essentially a lightened version. Without that hybrid viewfinder, will this seemingly "8-bitified" version be as interesting a camera as they other Fuji "X cameras"?"

The other is black and silver, and is designed to appeal to those wanting to make a statement about their camera choice.
