This camera is one of the best mirrorless cameras, period. I have dived into the Fuji system after shooting with DSLR's for the last few years and although it cannot replace my professional setup I bring to jobs, the X-T1 is still with me on my shoots and is my personal walk around camera.

Pros:
-Image Quality is superb, especially with Fuji's excellent lenses
-Fast, Up there with some of the pro DSLR's with 8 fps
-AF is SO much better than on previous Fuji's
-Predictive Continuous AF is a really nice feature that works!
-Ergonomics are excellent
-Viewfinder is amazing
-Tilt Screen is nice for low level or waist level shots
- Nice High ISO performance
-Dials, Dials, Dials, they are perfectly placed and easy to control all elements
-WIFI remote connection is awesome!!!
-Additional Vertical Grip is a great addition for portrait shooting
-Build Quality is excellent and feels solid
-UHS-II SD card compatibility makes everything snappy
-Weather Proof! (Although no WP lenses out at this time)
-Utilizes Fuji's amazingly sharp and FAST lenses

Cons:
-While AF is very, very good it is no match for a Pro DSLR
-Battery life is a little to be desired
-1/4000 max shutter speed

Cons (That I am fine with but others might like to know)
-Lack of weatherproof lenses right now (3 new WP lenses are coming)!
-16 Mega Pixels (for my style of shooting I would like 18-24)
-Not Full Frame (I shoot FF DSLR's but The X-T1 is super close in quality)
-Only one SD slot

Ok, here we go. I shoot Full Frame DSLR's and I wanted a mirrorless camera to bring with me everywhere I go as a walk around and capable camera. I have owned, Panasonic, Olympus, and Sony and I can safely say that my search has ended with the Fuji X-System. What the system and particularly the X-T1 brings to me is the shooting experience allows me to get the shot and enjoy it. I love the manual dials and they let me make all the adjustments quickly without entering into a menu system. The lens selection is excellent with the fast primes. And soon the weather sealed 16-55 f/2.8 and 50-140 f/2.8 will be an excellent addition for a complete system. Above all though, Fuji delivers superb image quality which is what shooting with the X-T1 is all about.

This camera really lives up to the hype. The construction is excellent, the vertical grip gives it a high level of functionality, and the images it produces are so good! Speaking of image quality I would say when paired with one of the primes I can achieve near Full Frame quality. Depth is not as good as Full Frame but it is so close. Also 16 MP is a little low for what I shoot but it is absolutely enough for portraits.

The Auto Focus system is vastly improved. After shooting with Fuji for a while now and utilizing Nikon DSLR's for my professional work I find it hard to trust the AF on the Fuji's. The X-T1 is changing my opinion. For instance, I took a few shots at the park of my young daughter and using "Continuous Focus" and "Face Detection" it nailed the focus nearly every time. And, I'm talking about a child that runs all day and can dominate a jungle gym or swing set in no time! A huge improvement from my previous experience with Fuji.

One thing I thought I would never utilize is the WiFi functionality. It is so good, I use it to get a live view image on my iPhone or iPad and I can make adjustments while stand across the room! If the Mega Pixel count on this camera was higher it would be a Architecture/Real Estate photographers dream!

The X-T1 is such a capable camera that it has me questioning my use of heavy DSLR's in my professional work. However I think 2 things keep me from utilizing this system for pro shooting. #1 is the single SD card slot, I like to backup my images while I shoot with my DSLR's and it is a workflow safeguard my clients have come to expect from me. #2 is the lack of 1/8000 sec. shutter speed, it tops out at 1/4000 and ISO 200 so sometimes a ND filter is needed for that shallow DOF look in bright light. This isn't the end of the world but putting a ND filter on/off takes valuable time. Would I still shoot a wedding with this camera? Yes, and I think it would do an amazing job.

The viewfinder is excellent. I prefer optical finders but the Electronic viewfinder in the X-T1 is very, very close. One thing I love is the readout of settings and they rotate as you go from horizontal to vertical shooting. The flip out LCD is so good and I use this a lot for getting low shots and shooting around waist level, like the old Hasselblads!

All in all, I think this camera will impress you with not just the features and user experience but what matters most and what it was designed to do: create excellent Images. I cannot compliment Fuji enough for what they have produced with the X-T1 and they have nailed down a near perfect camera! They are so close to making a mirrorless system that can seriously replace the big boy DSLR's and if the couple of cons I have discussed are not much of concern to you then I am confident the X-T1 will be one of the best camera purchases you can make!

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?

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

Superb photographic and build quality. The LCD and EVF are the example of perfections. I shoot raw and find that post in general takes less work, can't figure out exactly why yet, perhaps better metering, in camera dsp, etc. I also very much love the ability to switch between modes such as aperture priority, fully auto, etc etc. And, btw, the little strobe that comes with is helpful for fill when you need that.

It's hard actually to not give it 5. A few things which could be improved:
1. Battery life, but I did get the grip which fixes this issue and doesn't add much bulk.
2. I love all the controls via dial, however, when one say changes the iso, it could also surprise you and change the drive setting.
3. The view mode button is a little hard to get to and it's a bit hard to figure out all the various characteristics of each mode.
4. The video quality indeed can be improved, but the photo capability is awesome.
5. The video play/stop button is hard to get to, but not a huge deal.

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

the size and weight of this camera makes it easy to have with you at all times. i no longer worry about which piece of gear is going to get left behind when going on a shoot. lots of customizable controls. awesome view finder. and great image quality.

kind of a pain to have to keep a button depressed while turning the iso dial. silly, considering it isn't necessary with the shutter speed or exposure compensation dial. also, some of the buttons are a little small. i imagine this camera would fit very well for someone with smaller hands.

overall, a real joy to use. glad i ditched the heavier dslr's.

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

    I am a working pro (weddings and portraits) and have been looking for a smaller camera to take everywhere with me. My pro body DSLR's are just too big. I did not want to sacrifice image quality and get a smaller sensor. This new Fuji is awesome. Its small, made extremely well and feels the way a quality camera should. The images from these Fuji sensors are just magical, sharp, and has a dynamic range like nothing I've ever seen. I have been shooting for 25+ years with many years in film (120 & 35mm) and these Fuji sensors have a beautiful film/analog like quality. I may just be selling more of my larger DSLR's to get another and some more lenses. I love the easy to use manual dials for shutter, ISO and exposure comp, plus the Fuji lenses have a manual aperture dial, it feels like my old Nikon F3.

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

      About a year and a half ago I started to switch from Nikon equipment, D300, D700, D3s, and all the lenses that you can think of to the Fujifilm X pro 1, after using it for a while and taking it to India, Nepal and a few other places with the 35mm and te 18-55mm lenses, I absolutely fell in love with it!!
      I purchase the X-T1 about two weeks ago and I am just as happy with it. I just received the new 55-200mm lens, and ordered the 18mm as well.
      I will be going to Bali soon and guess what two cameras are coming with me?

      I travel around the world a great deal and the weight with two Nikon bodies and 4 lenses is huge, now I feel light and with an amazing equipment can can handle all my shooting situations as I travel.

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

        LCD speed is amazing, wright speed is improved over the XPro1 but still not quite fast enough for me, when speed is important go Nikon dslr or Canon. I use this camera for everything but high speed sports images. I am as excited by the XT1 as I was disappointed with my XPro1 before the firmware updates, ( its now much improved ). I have 6 of the best lenses for the X system and all are the best glass I have shot since Leitz and Zeiss made their masterpiece prime lenses during the film era. Im so totally pleased with the build quality and lightness of this camera it is near Leica tough for thousands less. In short my whole system including the XPro1, XT1, Flash and 6 lenses weigh 40% less than my nikon system with the same lenses an SB900 and two D7100 Body's.

        Not Quite Worthy of the Hype

        Cons

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

            This is an excellent still camera. I own two, full-sized Nikon DSLRs (D4, D700). I travel around the world and needed an excellent camera to always have with me. The pro gear is simply too large and heavy to drag around on business trips. I shopped for quite a while and this clearly was the right camera for my need. I have used it on two international trips and several local outings as well as a bit on one pro event shoot.

            My thoughts are: 1. Excellent overall image quality. 2. Better auto white balance and color rendition than any Nikon I have owned. I have not needed to adjust the white balance on a single image. I tweak every image from the D4 if I do not set a custom WB. 3. Good controls overall, but I am constantly moving the aperture ring on the lens by mistake. They need an aperture lock. 4. Weird limitations like 3-shot exposure bracketing. Anyone who does HDR wants at least 5 different exposures. Also, I cannot find a way to make the AE-L and AF-L buttons do anything unless I am in manual focus. Why would I only want to do auto exposure lock only on manual focus? 5. OK auto-focus. It has failed me several times when I had a shot I needed to capture fast. 6. Slow response when switching between viewing an image and shooting. If you are viewing an image, you need to press the shutter halfway to switch back to a live view then release it and press it again to get a focus and take a picture. This has made me miss several shots. 7. The electronic viewfinder is only OK. Several reviewers have simply raved about the viewfinder. As I have never before owned a camera with an EVF, perhaps this one is better than usual, but it is still a very poor alternative to an optical viewfinder. It is too bright and too contrasty and very grainy. It really does not look at all like the image you end up with. The way the viewfinder keeps changing its brightness makes it very challenging to make adjustments to ND grad filters and especially polarizers. 8. Really excellent kit lens. I had a rule that I was not going to start a second collection of lenses. This lens is perfect for general use and is really fast. Very low CA and good sharpness across the image. Overall a bit too contrasty, though. 9. The little flash included is surprisingly good. 10. Nice small charger that is perfect for travel. 11. Really terrible (pretty much useless) video. If tree branches are moving, there are all sorts of strange artifacts. Clearly, video was a very late afterthought. I have shot about 30 minutes of video and have simply discarded all of it. iPhone video is infinitely better. I really hope we get a major video upgrade as a future firmware version.

            The hype has been all about this camera taking the place of full-frame, pro DSLRs. Unless you are shooting very non-challenging subjects, I do not think the D4 has anything to be worried about. That said, I do not think the comparisons are fair. This is not advertised as a pro DSLR replacement. With the exception of the very poor video, this camera compares very favorably to every other camera in its class. I am very happy with my choice and am capturing excellent images in situations where I would not even have had a camera in the past.

              I never really used my old DSLR after a while. Sure I took some great, even stunning, pictures with it, but eventually sold off my DSLR because I found it too bulky to log around.
              The X-T1 has simply made photography enjoyable again. Excellent IQ paired with a compact and light body - What more could you ask for?

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

                      This is an outstanding camera. It is quick to set up and learn. It has few quirks. Menus are straightforward. Image quality is stunning and the ability to pull shadow detail at low ISOs (1600 and below) is amazing. Have sold a Nikon FF setup (D800 and beaucoup lenses) due to the stunning quality of Fuji lenses and this (and the X-e2) body. Given the light weight, small size, outstanding image quality this is a great last camera. When Fuji comes out with the long telephoto zooms on their roadmap this will be a complete substitute for the Nikon system except for some nature/sports subjects that demand DSLR quality continuous focus.

                      I shoot primary landscapes and have found the color palette excellent and the lenses on a par with anything produced by Nikon (the 10-24 Fuji is a match for the 14-24 ff Nikon).

                      Best points -
                      very solidly built
                      Viewfinder is as bright as FF DSLR
                      Viewfinder eyepoint for a glasses wearer allows me to see the whole frame easily.
                      Live view equivalent in the viewfinder is outstanding
                      Ease of setting controls with dials
                      Excellent auto white balance and easy ability to do custom WB adjustments
                      Focusing for fast moving objects substantially improved over X-e2 (which is pretty good, but not as good as the T1).
                      Tilt LCD is especially nice on a tripod.

                      I do not have any problem with the buttons on the multi-controller. They click nicely.

                      I prefer this to the x-e2 (although that one is very nice) due to the much improved viewfinder and more solid sealed build. I have kept the X-e2 as a backup body though.

                      The only cons are these - the data port on the bottom for the vertical grip has a flimsy rubber cover (can you spell gaffer tape). And the function buttons are a tad small, so working with gloves on this body will be a problem.

                      These are three Fuji system items that could be improved. First, there is a need for aperture markings on the lenses. Second, battery life is only adequate. Third, a second data card slot would be nice.

                      I have been in search for the perfect travel companion for some time. Did not want a point-n-shoot!!! Tried various options and I find this meets my needs and is the perfect complement to my DSLR (which does not travel well for me with two toddlers)

                      It was the first time to buy a Fujifilm. I've been looking for a light camera that can replace my Canon 5dMk2. I'm very happy with my purchase. I use my camera mostly for landscape photography. I paired my Xt1 with the Fujinon 14mm. Excellent combination. I use mostly raw format, but the jpg is very clean. The Fujinon 10-24mm and 50-230mm are also excellent.

                      I love the external dials that are on top of the camera. I don't have to push many buttons to access them.

                        Have tried to get comfortable with a couple of amazingly sophisticated DSLRs but have always missed the experience of the old K1000, even at the cost of speed, efficiency, etc. I'm hoping this camera is finally the meeting place between the old experience and new efficiencies and sophistication. So far all signs are the answer is yes.

                        And that viewfinder! POW!

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

                          I purchased the Fuji X-T1 for general purpose all around shooting. The files being produced by this camera are superb and consistent with the output from the X100s which I have already been using. I find the Fuji menus more straight-forward and intuitive to use than other systems I have experience with, including Canon, Olympus and Sony. The external controls are great, but I do prefer the layout on the X100s.

                          I love using this camera, but I do have two minor criticisms. I find the function button on the front of the camera next to the lens is too easy to inadvertently press. Depending on the function assigned to this button this can be a real headache or just a minor nuisance. I currently have programmed to bring up the shutter timer, so it is only a minor nuisance. Overall, the camera size and ergonomics are great. The second issue I have is the lack of weather resistant lenses. The weather-sealing was a significant factor in my decision purchase, and while I know the sealed lenses are coming soon, ideally I would have preferred to purchase the camera with a sealed lens.

                          All things considered, the Fuji X-T1 is an excellent image maker.

                            The X-T1 is a great addition to the Fufifilm line. I received the camera from B&H towards the end of May, and the 4 way D-Pad, which was the subject of early negative reports, appears to have been upgraded with much better tactile feedback. The EVF works great, and the flip out LCD is also nice. I like the dials and retro look, but that's my personal preference. Of course the real advantage of the camera is the Fuji lenses. I primarily shoot jpegs, and they are also excellent.

                            I'm a armature photographer and the Fuji XT1 is my first SLR type camera ..
                            The other day i took this camera along with the 56mm lens to the park on a very sunny day ..The camera was set in Program/Vivid and the colors were just crazy..! I just love shooting colors..!!!
                            I have the 14mm,23mm,55mm,and the 200mm but i have not tried these lenses out just yet but this 56mm lens is very very impressive.
                            Everyday i'm learning something new about this camera ..
                            In July i'll take a basic course in digital photography .. I'm really happy about this investment ..!
                            Maybe someday i'll get as good with a camera as some of you guy's ..
