Fujifilm XF1 review

Our verdict

The fujifilm XF1 is an attractive high-end compact camera with easy handling thanks to a simple layout and clever E-Fn button. With a larger-than-normal sensor, the XF1 has a solid low-light performance, too. Well done to Fuji for trying something different with the lens design, which could have been the camera's trump card but for its fiddly handling, average maximum aperture at mid to telephoto settings and, disappointingly, soft edge detail. All in all, the XF1 looks the part, handles well and offers plenty of shooting modes, but its final image quality is bettered by some of the competition.
