It is the slimmest and sleekest Fujifilm X-series camera so far, and the pocket-sized the XF1 uses the same 12-million-pixel CMOS sensor as its bigger brother, the X10. Read the Fujifilm XF1 review...

Fujifilm XF1 review – Introduction

Fujifilm has added a truly compact-sized model to its fashionable X-series in the form of the XF1. The camera sits in the high-end compact camera market, offering raw and JPEG capture and manual-exposure controls. Crowded though this market now is, the XF1’s slim design and simple layout puts it head-to-head with the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 and Canon PowerShot S110, the most direct competition. Other high-end models are less ‘pocketable’ and usually feature bodies more crowded with controls.

Where the Fujifilm XF1 stands out from the crowd is in its attractive exterior, with leather-like finish and aluminium top-plate, much like the original X-series camera, the FinePix X100. Like the X10 (and X-S1 bridge camera), the XF1 uses the ‘larger-than-normal’, 12-million-pixel imaging sensor, so we can expect similar image quality, too.
