In additional X-E1 was introduced by Fujifilm in September 2012. It belongs to the Mirrorless Cameras category.
Fujifilm is well-known and shouldn’t require further introduction, please see our manufacturer’s page for more digital cameras by Fujifilm.
Also X-E1 has a APS-C CMOS X-TRANS sensor with size of 24 x 16 mm² (0.93″ x 0.61″).

The 1-Euro coin has a diameter of 23.25mm.
The X-E1’s image sensor has an effective resolution of around 16 megapixel. That’s roughly average and will be sufficient for most purposes. Photos with this resolution can easily be printed to A3 or A2 size.
The Fujifilm supports taking images in RAW. RAW images are stored as they come from the sensor, without any in-camera processing or sharpening. Converting to JPEG or other formats takes place on the computer, using software like Adobe Lightroom or Fujifilm’s RAW converter. This involves one extra processing step but almost always results in superior image quality. Some filters, like converting to monochrome (black and white) will only yield decent results when used with RAW images.
The X-E1 does not have a mechanism for automatic sensor cleaning. Dust that collects on the sensor has to be removed with a blower or brush.
|Sensor area||23.60 x 15.60mm²
(0.93″ x 0.61″)
|Resolution (physical)||16.30 megapixel|
|Resolution (effective)||16.30 megapixel|
|Pixel size||23.20 µm²|
The X-E1 uses an electronic viewfinder with a resolution of 2.36 megapixel, an excellent value for a viewfinder like this which makes the camera a joy to use.
The magnifcation is c. 0.62x, an above average value for an electronic viewfinder.
The X-E1’s shutter speed varies from 1/4000s to 30s.
|Max. shutter speed||1/4000s|
|Min. shutter speed||30s|
The X-E1’s sensitivity is from 200 ISO and 6400 ISO.
Also, Fujifilm’s sensitivity can be boosted to 25600. Therefore, ISO boosting will lead to growth noise.
|Min. sensitivity||200 ISO|
|Max. sensitivity||6400 ISO|
The X-E1 supports all general exposure modes.
The Fujifilm allows spot exposure for the difficult occasion.
|Auto Focus Properties|
The X-E1’s auto focus processor uses 49 AF points (or sensors). A basic rule of thumb says that the more AF points you have, the better. More AF points mean a better chance to have a point at the location of interest in a scene, a big plus in challenging situations (e.g. when panning the camera).
Manual focus is also possible with the Fujifilm, a plus in tricky situations or for some creative freedom.
The X-E1 has a built-in flash with a diapason of up to 7m (23 ft.). That range will fit for almost all occasion.
The X-E1 features a monitor with a diagonal of 71.00mm (2.8 in.) and a resolution of c. 0.46 megapixel. That rather low resolution is no longer state of the art and will make it difficult to evaluate images on the display.
Unfortunately, the X-E1’s monitor is not articulated. That can make it tricky to frame your subject in some situations, e.g. when taking selfies.
The X-E1 does not feature a touch screen.
