Fujifilm X-E2 review- Viewfinder, live view, LCD and video
While some people would no doubt prefer a hybrid viewfinder like the ones found on the X-Pro1 and X100S, it’s hard to nitpick the X-E2’s OLED EVF. It provides bright colours, impressive resolution and is anything but tunnel-like. What’s most impressive, though, is the faster 50fps refresh rate that offers a much smoother viewing performance when moving the camera.
Just as the viewfinder performs better, so does the screen. The trade-off for smaller buttons is a larger 3in display – a wise move – and the 1.04-million-dot resolution makes it comparable with many rivals’ screens. The display provides a crisp and sharp image, and the way it’s designed to sit so flush to the body at the rear is welcome.
The X-E2 can shoot full HD 1080p (1920×1080-pixel) video at frame rates of 60fps or 30fps with a high bit rate of 36Mbps. The X-E2’s continuous AF provides near-silent autofocus performance from the kit lens, resulting in clean audio footage.
