The Fuji X-S1 digital camera combines the zoom power of Fujiffilm S-series and the premium 2/3″ CMOS sensor of its X-series. The Fujifilm XS1 is more modern-looking as compared to its X100 and X10 predecessors. The digital camera is made in Japan to gurantee the highest quality standard. The Fuji XS1 camera boasts a 12MP sensor, a 3-inch tilt LCD display and a 26x optical zoom lens with optical image stablisation. Carrying a tagline of “The Bridge Camera, Reinvented”, the Fuji X-S1 camera is aimed at travelers who won’t be satisfied with a small point-and-shoot, but wouldn’t want a bulky DSLR either. Although 26x optical zoom does not seems to be the highest for a bridge camera, its Intelligent Digital Zooming technology lets you double the optical zoom, without a drop in image quality. In effect, users are granted an amazing 52x optical quality zoom range, now that is awesome.
- Full HD video, full manual control mode, Raw file format, Film simulation modes, Macro focusing down to 1cm
- Made in Japan – Superb build quality and finish with rubberised coating and metal dials
- 12 megapixel EXR CMOS sensor, Up to 10 frames-per-second shooting
- Fujinon 26x optical zoom len with Optical image stabilisation, covering 24-624mm (35mm equivalent) with Intelligent Digital Zoom boosting range up to 1248mm
The Fuji XS1 camera has a Super Macro Mode which lets you capture images from as close as 1cm from the subject, providing high-clarity images at extreme close-ups. A nine-blade lens aperture also promises excellent effect photography.
The Fujifilm X-S1 digital camera can record at full 1080p at 30fps with stereo sound in H.264 format. The Fujifilm X-S1 also provides a Raw file format. In additions to 26MB of internal memory, Fuji XS1 has an expansion slot for SD/ SDHC/ SDXC(UHS-I) memory cards.

What the critics are saying?
-http://www.photographyblog.com : ” Having said that, the XS1 it’s also easily the best-in-class super-zoom, offering a compelling mix of features, performance and image quality that no other rival can match. If you want one camera that can do it all, then look no further than the Fujifilm X-S1.”
-http://www.whatdigitalcamera.com : ” The X-S1 has a solid build, produces better low-noise images than any other superzoom, has a better viewfinder than any other superzoom (and, indeed, one that’s on par with many Compact System Cameras), a decent image stabilisation system, and a layout that handles a lot like a DSLR. That’s a big list of pros to outweigh the cons. “
-http://www.trustedreviews.com : The Fuji X-S1 is intended as a premium grade superzoom bridge camera. Using the same 2/3inch sensor as the Fujifilm X10, the X-S1 is capable of producing class-leading image quality within the superzoom segment. Other highlights include the manually operated 26x optical zoom, a surprisingly usable EVF, and solid overall build quality. Overall, superzoom fans will find little to complain about here, aside from the rather high price tag. Ultimately you will get better image quality from a DSLR or compact system camera, however if your heart is set on a superzoom and you have the money to spend then this is undoubtedly the model to aspire to at present.”
