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...

LCD, viewfinder and video

Unlike its larger X10 counterpart, the XF1 has neither built-in viewfinder nor hotshoe to allow an external viewfinder to be attached, so it relies on the 3in LCD screen. It has a ‘tempered’ and scratch-free surface and a 460,000-dot resolution, which is a little low when compared to the competition, but is a bright display nonetheless. A monitor ‘sunlight’ mode boosts the output of the display to make it easier to view in bright light, which makes a subtle difference.

Full HD 1080p video recording at 30fps is standard in a camera at this level, as is stereo sound. In movie mode, focusing is selectable to centre frame or continuous.
