For the past 20 years I've been shooting Nikon as well as medium format film - Mamiya C330 and the Mamiya AF645.I was late to make the jump from the Nikon F5 to the D200 and would use digital andd film for different purposes. I slowly updated from D200 to D300 to D700 and at that point I started to realize that I shot less digital than film, because my Nikon equipment actually started weighing more than my Mamiya medium format sets!It was time to reconsider what I wanted to get out of digital. I got an Olympus OM-D EM5 with 5 primes. It was fun and fast, but it felt too digital and completely missed the depth of focus. I sold the entire MFT set. I had been following the X-system for a while and really liked the glass, but the bodies were just not what I hoped for. They were slow, buggy and at time not very responsive. Well, that completely changed with the X-T1. It is wonderful body that lets you shoot as if you are shooting with your old film camera. The film settings in-camera as well as the post-processing in-camera are great features. This camera is completely different from the X-Pro1. It is very responsive, highly customizable and produces wonderful results. I am very impressed.I used the X-T1 with the Fuji 23mm f/1.4 and the Samyang / Rokinon 8mm f/2.8 fisheye MF. Great lenses. Though with f/1.4 you might want to buy a good B+W ND8 or 16 filter, because in bright sunlight you'll hit the 1/4000 second quickly.

I purchased this camera hoping I can lug a lightweight camera for hikes, but after careful evaluation with the Fuji XF 14mm f/2.8 prime I found that fine details tend to not be rendered properly by the various RAW processors I've tried - including in-camera JPG engine. I see especially on green or brown detail (leaves or twigs) a watercolor effect where I don't get well defined edge detail. I also notice sharpening halos on some medium detail areas of the image, even when the sharpness of the camera is set to "low". My 5D Mark III while a little higher in MP count does not exhibit this effect.You can see the watercolor effect even on the sample images posted by Fuji in the green details. Foreground detail is excellent, but rapidly degrades to watercolor and mush as the objects get smaller. I don't see nearly as much mush on mid-range and long-range detail on my 5D Mk III.https://www.fujifilmusa.com/products/digital_cameras/x/fujifilm_x_t1/sample_images/img/index/ff_x_t1_003.JPGFurther, while the size of the camera and the general feel is excellent, the buttons on the back do not have enough travel and feel like mush when pressed. Also, where is the rear scroll wheel (ala Canon/Sony) on the X100s which I loved?

Ahead of Nikon, ahead of Canon

By Edu1000i

Comments about Fujifilm X-T1 Mirrorless Digital Camera (Body Only):

A name brand that belonged mostly to the era of film is surpassing the main camera brands with it's innovation and at the same time retro look. Excellent quality and construction, the optics on parallel with the best. When I grab my Nikon D700 now is like holding a baby mammoth. Looking forward to the full frame version..

Comments about Fujifilm X-T1 Mirrorless Digital Camera (Body Only):

Nothing short of impressed with what Fuji have put together with the X-T1. It's small, it's quiet, it's a joy to use, and it's a gorgeous camera. Someone was actually thinking about photographers when they designed this. The out of camera jpeg's are awesome. ACR fully supports Fuji's RAF files now, and Fuji is known to continually update their products. I'm glad I switched. Fuji is the new Leica.

Manual Shooter's Camera

By Jcooper

from Oregon

Comments about Fujifilm X-T1 Mirrorless Digital Camera (Body Only):

I traded my D700 in for this camera. Nothing has encouraged me to get rid of the best camera I ever had until the X T1 came on the scene. Will I miss the D700? Yes, somewhat. But I have been shooting completely manual for over a decade, and the Fuji is stellar in this regard. I am still a big fan of Nikon and I have kept all my Nikon lenses which I am using with a Novoflex adaptor on the Fuji. Works great. I hope Nikon makes a large sensor ILC mirror-less. If they do I will be back on board in a flash. I have owned Nikons since the mid- Eighties. Love Nikons.

The X T1 is tremendous in image quality and ergonomics. My foray into mirrorless began several months ago. I purchased a Nikon Coolpix A. Too small and not enough external controls. 28 mm just a little too wide for a fixed lens. Then I bought a Sony A 6000. It is a wonderful little speedy camera, but I did not like the ergonomics and controls. Hate the spinning wheel where a four way controller should be on any camera. So I tried a Fuji X-E2. This was what I was looking for. It was almost perfect. But I would not give up my D700, yet. Then the X T1 appeared. It is not as retro looking as the X E2 but it is just more and better. Not in IQ. But the EVF is so good I don't miss an optical viewfinder.

Everything is right where it should be and I have not even modified the function buttons. I know where everything is for my adjustments
Is it perfect? No.
I cannot understand why a manual shooter cannot use the exposure compensation dial to adjust the ISO
The ISO dial lock button is silly. If anything it should lock the ring below it.

But other than that this camera is very satisfying. I'm having great fun.

Sweet... Totally

By Dw

from Oakland, CA

Comments about Fujifilm X-T1 Mirrorless Digital Camera (Body Only):

Very pleased with this purchase. Sleek, lightweight and feature laden. I used to shoot with a Canon 7D and really liked it, but the new mirrorless cameras are lighter and have the same great image quality. I am a big fan of the EVF and HUD. The film and advanced modes can add lots of style too.
Wireless function is a very nice touch and allows me to shoot remotely, but the functions are very limited and I either have to continually reconnect by going to my device settings or leave it on and waste batteries for both devices. And the camera strap it comes with is simply terrible, small feels cheap and very uncomfortable - will definitely need to buy a new one. Battery life has been so-so.
Overall still very pleased.

Comments about Fujifilm X-T1 Mirrorless Digital Camera (Body Only):

This a great camera for travel. It is much lighter than my canon slr.
However, the biggest downside for me is the battery life. Thankfully i purchased a 2nd battery. A battery grip was an option but that adds further weight.
Apart from this issue im very pleased with the overall performance of the camera.

    Comments about Fujifilm X-T1 Mirrorless Digital Camera (Body Only):

    On the whole I am very pleased with this camera. It looks great and the pictures I have so far taken with it with the Fuji 10-24 and the Fuji 23 prime are very sharp indeed. The EVF is also very satisfactory although at its default setting is way too bright and I had to turn it down.

    Things that I find less than satisfactory are the following:

    1. The user manual is very poor and explanations are cryptic. Many things you will only understand by trial and error.

    2. Aperture is only adjustable via the aperture ring on the lens. This ring, however, moves too easily, for example your right hand fingers can inadvertently move the ring while shooting.

    3. The position of the AF-L button is horrible and for me makes it unusable. I like to separate the focus from the shutter button and use the AF-L button to focus. However, it is positioned at the extreme upper right hand corner of the back of the camera, making it impossible to use unless your thumb is not more than 1cm long. The AE-L button is far better positioned, but you cannot swap the functions of the AE-L and AF-L buttons.

    4. There is no built-in GPS for geotagging. You can however transmit geotagging information from the Fuji Remote App on your phone, however this is not updated real-time and if you move to a new location you have to transmit again.

    On the whole, however, I am very pleased with the camera.

        Comments about Fujifilm X-T1 Mirrorless Digital Camera (Body Only):

        Very satisfied with this camera, selected after getting input from a couple of professional photographers. My wife and I are hobbyists, wanted a camera that would do well with mountain vistas and macros. This camera is relatively light weight considering it's capabilities. The lens options are extensive, and lens and camera appear to be be high-quality construction. Controls are fairly intuitive and manual is clear. Both the electronic viewfinder and screen are clear, even in fairly bright sun, and the on-screen info is useful. Control locations and mechanics are fine, we see no need for optional grips at this point. Can't comment on battery life yet. No complaints.

          Great features include: A viewfinder that is as amazing as most reviewers have reported. The top mounted analog dials. Focus assist features in manual mode that are superb. The autofocus with the lens I've used, e.g. 18-135mm, is very fast and accurate. The tilt screen is very useful for low level shots.Things that could be better are: The shot mode selection ring could use a lock feature. The access panel doors are flimsy. The exposure peaking feature in live view is missing. The histogram seems to be a bit off.

          Comments about Fujifilm X-T1 Mirrorless Digital Camera (Body Only):

          I've been a long time Nikon DSLR user. So when I decided to completely switch from my FF Nikon to the Fuji XT1, it was a very difficult one. I'm very excited to say that the XT1 has left me with no regrets. PROS:EVF-simply AWESOME!!!Image quality (even JPEGS SOOC)Low light performanceDials-perfectly placed; allowing for quick changes to commonly used settingsBuild quality is top notch (fully weather sealed)Reduced weight & size (compared to my Nikon FF DSLR)Overall very customizable to user's preferenceManual focus assistGreat handling-quick and quiet Phone App allows wireless control CONS:Battery lifeSingle SD slotNo built in pop up flash (does include a small hot shoe flash unit) Multi directional pad's buttons are smallNiche product; currently a small selection of 3rd party accessoriesAs you can see, I only have a few minor complaints about the XT1. I don't shoot much fast action or record video, so I have not touched on either topic. Overall I love everything about this camera. The current Fuji lens selection is amazing with more to come in the next 6 months! Fuji has done a really nice job with the X series cameras. What's also amazing is that there will be a firmware update in December that will add to the XT1's already amazing feature set; thumbs up to Fuji!I would highly recommend the Fuji XT1 to anyone looking for a high end mirrorless camera. B&H was also great with the included expedited free shipping and the 4% rewards back. Just order an XT1 already!!!!

            I'm a professional photojournalist and normally shoot with Canon DSLRs for work (1DX). While I love my Canons, I always wanted something light to carry around. First owned the X-PRO1 briefly and while it was alright, it felt slow to use and like it was trying to be something else; just replaced it with the XT1 a few weeks ago and I'm in love. It is small, light and easy to use quickly like an old AE-1. I'm not very nostalgic so looking retro wasn't a huge selling point, but NOT having to bury into menus to change settings is so essential on a quick to use carry around camera. Image Quality is great, the Fuji Lenses I've owned so far are incredible and focus accurately it seems from all my testing. Very impressed and really loving this.

              Comments about Fujifilm X-T1 Mirrorless Digital Camera (Body Only):

              I've loved the small size of mirrorless cameras for the last 3 years and have used several different ones. The X-T1 is the best, for several reasons.
              I love the manual controls that give instant access to the most common changes you may need to make.
              And the image quality is just terrific. I leave it on Auto ISO, with a range between 100 and 6400, and even at 6400 almost all of the photos are very usable with a light, fine grain pattern to the visible noise.
              Finally, the EVF is without peer (as of Sept. 2014).
              The X-T1, after trying the Sony A7 and Olympus OM-D E-M1, is my first choice.

              I purchased this camera after using a Fujifilm X100 for several years and couldn't be happier. The X-T1 is an ideal choice for anyone loooking for a versatile and fully controllable digital camera that is also lightweight. I have been very impressed with the image quality and the XF lenses are superb (particuarly the 56mm). The focus assist is also a nice feature. My only complaint is that the menu layout is a little clunky.

              I was using a Nikon D700+several lenses before. The overall had become too heavy for me. So I bought the X-T1 and I am very happy with it. It can really replace a full-frame camera. Some things are not perfect about the ergonomy (people with large hands must really buy a hand grip for example, the dials for speed and iso are strange...) but these are details. The viewfinder is really great also.

                Comments about Fujifilm X-T1 Mirrorless Digital Camera (Body Only):

                For the past 20 years I've been shooting Nikon as well as medium format film - Mamiya C330 and the Mamiya AF645.I was late to make the jump from the Nikon F5 to the D200 and would use digital andd film for different purposes. I slowly updated from D200 to D300 to D700 and at that point I started to realize that I shot less digital than film, because my Nikon equipment actually started weighing more than my Mamiya medium format sets!It was time to reconsider what I wanted to get out of digital. I got an Olympus OM-D EM5 with 5 primes. It was fun and fast, but it felt too digital and completely missed the depth of focus. I sold the entire MFT set. I had been following the X-system for a while and really liked the glass, but the bodies were just not what I hoped for. They were slow, buggy and at time not very responsive. Well, that completely changed with the X-T1. It is wonderful body that lets you shoot as if you are shooting with your old film camera. The film settings in-camera as well as the post-processing in-camera are great features. This camera is completely different from the X-Pro1. It is very responsive, highly customizable and produces wonderful results. I am very impressed.I used the X-T1 with the Fuji 23mm f/1.4 and the Samyang / Rokinon 8mm f/2.8 fisheye MF. Great lenses. Though with f/1.4 you might want to buy a good B+W ND8 or 16 filter, because in bright sunlight you'll hit the 1/4000 second quickly.

                  Comments about Fujifilm X-T1 Mirrorless Digital Camera (Body Only):

                  Nothing to add to the accolades. If the viewfinder looks blurry, don't forget to adjust with the little dial on the left side of it. Took me a bit to figure that out.

                  I traded X-T1 for my x100 so I could use the 18mm as my go-to lens.

                  Nothing will exceed the versatility and quality of my Pentax K5 with many lenses, but for everyday use and particularly for discreet travel use, the X-T1 is perfect. BTW, the black and silver x100 (despite its focus issues) always appeared to be a Leica, which increased its interest to thieves!

                    I was tired of carrying my heavy DSLR and lenses hiking so I thought I would give this a try! Bought the 18-135 lens as well and I am impressed! Giving serious thought to switching totally to this system - time will tell!

                    Comments about Fujifilm X-T1 Mirrorless Digital Camera (Body Only):

                    I was hesitant about purchasing a mirrorless camera for quite a while, as I did not believe it could possibly match the quality of my Canon 6D full frame DSLR. But when I saw how much attention the Fujifilm X-T1 was getting, I just had to do my own research to see if I could finally make the switch to the lighter and more convenient set-up that I so desperately desired. In fact, I ended up doing a week's worth of research, comparing the Fuji to other top mirrorless cameras and my existing DSLR, and to be honest, I wish I had never done this, as it kept me from shooting with this gorgeous camera for yet another week!

                    I can honestly say that this was my best photographic purchase ever. I understand that the camera does not make the photographer, and I am a big believer in that. However, the X-T1 makes photography more desirable, more convenient and more fun. I shoot with the 27mm f/2.8 right now for street photography and in the studio, and this set-up has proven it can go head-to-head with the Canon 6D without a problem. In fact, I'd say that in terms of color rendition and white balance, this camera blows the Canon out of the water.

                    Best Qualities:

                    - The EVF: I was skeptical about using an electronic viewfinder, but wow, you have to use this thing to believe it. Definitely the best EVF on the market right now, as I've tested most of the top ones and they do not compare to the X-T1's.

                    - Ergonomics: This camera feels amazing in your hands and is designed to be a photographer's workhorse. The dials are perfectly placed, the full metal body feels so luxurious, it's very easy to shoot this thing with just one hand if you so desire, and if you wear it with a strap, you'll forget you even have it on. The camera design and functionality is top notch.

                    - Image Quality: Anything you can shoot with a DSLR, you can shoot with this (save for maybe sports/very fast action, but an AF improvement will fix that.) I have had no problems with image quality at all. Don't be turned off by the APS-C sensor: the detail it captures is more than enough.

                    Needed Improvements:

                    - Faster Auto-Focus (can be fixed with a firmware upgrade if Fuji chooses)

                    - Battery Life (again, can be fixed via firmware if Fuji chooses)

                    - Video: wouldn't recommend buying this camera for video. That is one category where the DSLR has an advantage.

                    Other than that, I love everything about this camera and never want to put it down. It really has put a spark back into my photography as I now find myself bringing my camera everywhere (it is jacket-pocketable with the 27mm for sure!)

                    JUST BUY THIS - YOU WON'T REGRET IT!

                    Comments about Fujifilm X-T1 Mirrorless Digital Camera (Body Only):

                    Honestly you can't really find much to complain about with this system. I've found my favorite combination so far to be the X-T1 and 35mm 1.4 R lens, which produces some incredibly sharp results with magical bokeh. There doesn't seem to be anything this camera can't do, but I will say that it does have a different look and feel to images that come out of the camera than a Canon/Nikon, so prepare to adjust your eyes to what color can be in the eyes of a Fuji.

                    I would advise you play around with the camera and test its limits before venturing into different film modes.

                    One side note (slight negative) - the LCD default brightness is very high, so you're going to need to spend time to calibrate what you're seeing and what you're getting. It's really not all that big of a deal since you can seemingly recover highlight/shadow detail over 2+ stops without all that much quality loss, but it IS noticeable, so if you want to be accurate, figure out how bright your LCD needs to be to show you exactly what your camera is getting.

                    Love, love, LOVE this camera.
