The black X-M1 Mirrorless Digital Camera Body from Fujifilm is a high performance X-mount camera that takes its place alongside the X-Pro1 and X-E1 as Fujifilm's premiere mirrorless cameras and shares with them the handsome retro form factor, APS-C X-Trans sensor, Full HD 1080p Video, a host of high-end functions and access to the growing list of Fuji X-mount lenses. Where it differs from the others is in size (it is the most compact), its built-in Wi-Fi capability, its user-friendly interface and large tilt-able LCD monitor.

The X-M1 houses a 16.3MP X-Trans CMOS sensor which offers a unique color filter pixel array that eliminates its low pass filter and reduces moiré and false colors, resulting in exceptionally accurate color imaging, low noise and high resolution in the APS-C format. The EXR Processor II image processor enables high-performance speeds for both photo functions and Full HD 1080/30p video capture. In video mode, sound can be recorded through the built-in stereo microphone. ISO sensitivity can be extended to 25600 for clear imaging in low light and continuous shooting of 5.6 fps is achievable.

A large 3.0" TFT LCD monitor with 920k-dot resolution provides image composition and playback and its ability to flip up 90º and down 50º allows you to shoot at odd angles and adjust for glare and bright sun. Wi-Fi connectivity is supported on the X-M1 and allows for transfer of images to your Android or iOS mobile device. The Fujifilm Camera App allows you to browse the image contents of your camera from your mobile device and transfer up to 30 images at a time and the Photo Receiver App lets you immediately share images to a friend's smartphone.

The X-M1 measures just 4.6" wide and has a retro rangefinder form with simple control dials, a hot shoe mount and pop-up flash on its top plate. The main mode dial offers access to both its manual exposure modes, helpful scene modes and advanced features. A rubber thumb grip on the back provides a stable spot to hold the camera and places your thumb directly on a control dial for easy settings adjustment and one handed operation. A one-touch video record button is located just beneath the thumb grip as well. As mentioned, the X-M1 is compatible with all of the Fujifilm X-mount lenses and numerous others via the appropriate adapter. 

16.3MP APS-C X-Trans CMOS Sensor and EXR Processor II
By enhancing aperiodicity (randomness) in the array arrangement, the X-Trans CMOS sensor's color filter minimizes generation of both moire and false colors, eliminating the necessity for an optical low-pass filter and enabling X-Trans CMOS sensor to capture full "unfiltered" lens performance. The EXR Processor II is supported by an integrated co-processor for higher speed and higher precision image processing performance.
X Mount
Taking full advantage of the mirrorless design, the mount boasts a short 17.7mm flange back distance, a wider opening, and deeper mounting of the lens, resulting in reduced back focus distance while achieving high resolution throughout the image area. When an X-mount lens is mounted, all lens information is instantly communicated to the body, integrating them into a seamless, responsive instrument.
3.0" 920k-Dot Tilt LCD Monitor
Compose and playback your photos and videos on this LCD with special anti-reflective coating that reduces glare and is resistant to stains, smudges and water. A large and high resolution screen, it is capable of tilting up and down for easier odd-angle shooting.
Full HD 1080p Video with Stereo Sound
Capture the action in Full HD movies (1920 x 1080/30p). In addition to full auto exposure, you can also shoot with aperture priority AE. Taking full advantage of the bright XF lenses, you can also capture movies with a beautiful defocused background. Later with plug-and-play ease, you can connect directly to your HDTV with an HDMI cable and share your movies complete with stereo audio.
Built-in Wi-Fi Connectivity
With integrated Wi-Fi you can link your camera to your smartphone to transfer and back-up images and using Fuji's Photo Receiver App it's possible to send your photos to friends' smartphones the moment you take them. Geotagging is also supported with the wireless connection.
Focal Plane Shutter
The X-M1 is designed with a focal plane shutter that sits immediately in front of the sensor and can provide the camera with fast shutter speeds, up to 1/4000 second.
Film Simulation Modes
The X-M1 can simulate the color and tonal qualities of acclaimed films including the natural look of PROVIA, the saturated colors of Velvia and the 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. There are 10 Film Simulation Modes: PROVIA, Velvia, ASTIA, PRO Neg Hi, PRO Neg. Std., Monochrome, Monochrome+Ye Filter, Monochrome+R Filter, Monochrome+G Filter and Sepia.
QuickStart Mode
QuickStart Mode will power-up your camera and have you ready to shoot in as little as 0.5 seconds. Never miss a shot because you were ready but your camera wasn't. When QuickStart mode is turned off, camera will start in approximately 1.0 second.
Auto Bracketing
Auto Bracketing is a way to make sure you get the correctly exposed shot by shooting three continuous shots at slightly different levels. You can set Auto Bracketing for: AE Bracketing (+-1/3EV, +-2/3EV, +1EV); Film Simulation Bracketing (Any three types of film simulation selectable); Dynamic Range Bracketing (100%, 200%, 400%) and ISO Sensitivity Bracketing (+-1/3EV, +-2/3EV, +1EV).
JPEG and RAW Capture
Shoot in JPG or RAW and enjoy in-camera processing of the RAW files. The built-in RAW data converter lets you view results in the field without first transferring the data to your computer. This easy-to-use feature not only takes into account exposure compensation, white balance and other in-camera image quality settings, but also lets you apply Film Simulation modes in the converter mode.
High Speed Contrast Autofocus
Thanks to the high speed X-Trans CMOS sensor and newly developed EXR Processor II, contrast detection has improved and the X-M1 can autofocus in as little as 0.1 seconds and continuous high-speed shooting of up to 5.6 frames per second will allow you to capture fast-moving subjects. Autofocus is TTL Contrast AF with an available AF assist illuminator. AF Frame selection offers Area Frame with 49 areas and Multi Frame with 5 frame types.
Built-in Flash and Hot Shoe Mount
The X-M1 provides a built-in pop-up flash and a hot shoe mount and TTL (Through the Lens) Flash Sync. Maximum sync speed for flash is 1/180th of a second. The "intelligent" pop-up flash delivers the ideal amount of light for every scene, including those with strong backlight and those in very dim light. When shooting macro, the flash adjusts to not wash out the image with too much light.
Multiple Exposure
The X-M1 can simulate Multiple Exposure Film Technique. Just select Multiple Exposure mode and take your first shot. Next, while viewing the first image, you can frame and shoot the second exposure. This ability to precisely position and focus the second shot lets you not only see how the finished Multiple Exposure image will look, but also explore other creative photographic possibilities.

        Comments about X-M1 Mirrorless Digital Camera Body (Black):

        Normally, I use a Nikon D700,but I also wanted a camera that I could easily fit in my car's glove compartment, had a large sensor, and a flexible viewfinder screen. Now, when I see something worth photographing, I have a camera right in the car. The sensor size gives me very high quality photos and the flexible viewfinder gives me an opportunity to take pictures from angles not conveniently possible with a standard DSLR viewfinder. It is a fun camera to use.

        Comments about X-M1 Mirrorless Digital Camera Body (Black):

        I have an X-E2 and have been hugely impressed with its performance and handling, enough so that I've begun selling my APS-C Nikons.

        As a result, I wanted a less-expensive back-up body as well as a smaller travel camera that delivers the same excellent X-Trans sensor images. The X-M1 delivers on both counts. I read the many online reviews and had some hesitation over the focus performance compared to the hybrid phase and contrast detection on my X-E2 as well as the greater use of plastic for the body. With the camera in my hand I'm no longer concerned. The focus is snappy enough for non-action shots. Yes, it occasionally won't lock on low-contrast subjects, but a slight shift in the focus area normally solves that problem. As for the camera construction, despite the greater use of plastic it's a solid body and doesn't feel cheap. Another plus is that it uses the same battery as my X-E2 so I don't need to buy separate spares and pack another charger.

        The negatives are superfluous shooting modes geared towards beginners which I can ignore (and are beginners really able to figure out which of the seven auto/scene settings on the mode dial they should use?) and more menu-diving to access certain functions. The lack of an EVF is also an inconvenience but I knew that before buying the camera and it's part of the trade-off for a lower price and more diminutive body. The buttons on the rear-right of the camera are close together due to the lack of real estate, so a touch-screen would be a good addition for a successor model. The faux-leather covering could be grippier, too.

        Compared to what I paid for the X-E2, X-M1 delivers the same great image quality and provides excellent value. As a Nikon user for more than three decades, I'm very impressed with Fuji. For my so-called "serious" photography I'll continue to use my D800E, but for virtually every other situation it'll be my Fuji equipment.

        Comments about X-M1 Mirrorless Digital Camera Body (Black):

        Out-of-camera JPEGs are very good. People with larger hands may find it difficult to hold the camera. I doubt the optional grip will help. I wish RAW + JPEG was available when shoot in SR+, Adv, and SP modes. An optional OVF/EVF will help framing in many situation (non-existent.) Autofocus is rather slow (and inaccurate) in most low light situations. Focus peaking needs some improvement. Other things else I can live with.

        Comments about X-M1 Mirrorless Digital Camera Body (Silver):

        I tried Fuji as I've been shooting mostly with Olympus and some of the Micro 4/3's cameras. I liked the idea of the bigger sensor and the picture quality I've been reading raves about so i purchased the XM-1 body with the 18-55 2.8-4 zoom and 27mm pancake.

        I haven't had a chance to use it a ton and am anxious to get it out for a trip to Northern Michigan in a few weeks.

        I did shoot some pics at a car show and liked what I got back. The shots do hold a lot of detail and I like the 18-55 lens I bought for the XM-1. Nice focal range, solid build but not bulky, decent ability to hold app to f4 in telephoto and pretty reasonably priced.

        I like some of the filters too especially the one with the ability to retain one color while the rest of the frame is in monochrome.

        The one thing that I hope Fuji continues to develop is a faster auto focus. This camera is great for stills not so much for action shots. The PEN cameras had this issue too but the EP-5 has definitely made big strides from the earlier PEN's. Hopefully Fuji is able to get to this level with fast AF as I think the X series especially with the lenses they are developing is a good system camera with the potential for greatness.
