What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Fujifilm X100F APS-C Digital Camera - Silver
  • It's lightweight, compact size, and easy menus makes it perfect for day to day + family pictures.
  • I have been a pro photographer for over 30 years and bought this because of the small size and the quality Fuji lens.
  • Was afraid of being stuck with 1 focal length but you adjust. Size is great.
  • It's small, compact size allows me to take it nearly everywhere.
  • I wanted something travel sized in between my pocketable Canon Elph point and shoot and my larger Nikon DSRLs.
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX1 Full-frame Digital Camera
  • The size! It sits lower than my Fuji X100, and it's not as wide, only the lens sticks out roughly 1/4 of an inch more give or take.
  • In the market of small size cameras with full frame sensors and top quality lenses, well this camera has exactly Zero competitors. This is the only camera of its kind.
  • The size and weight are a bit more than the leica x2 but not so much that i can't toss it in my purse.
  • The small size of the camera means that it's easy to carry around and, when using time-tested techniques to bolster your body when shooting, you'll find that you can get photos you wouldn't be able to capture with a D-SLR and a similar lens.
  • I purchased the Sony because of it's size. I knew I would never drag a camera such as the Canon 6D around on vacation or out and about.

What customers say about "Imaging"
Fujifilm X100F APS-C Digital Camera - Silver
  • Short review, camera image quality is superb! Not the fastest camera in the world, nor the most ergonomic I've ever held, but the images taken will impress.
  • It also produces great images with amazing quality. I'm used to shooting raw, but this camera's JPG conversion is so good that the raw files are mostly not needed.
  • The color profiles and overall images from the fujinon system is superb.
  • Fujifilm X100F offers incredible image quality, body design, and portability.
  • It's a really fun camera to use and can deliver beautiful images, but it's probably best for serious photo enthusiasts and pros.
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX1 Full-frame Digital Camera
  • As good high ISO as virtually any full frame camera.
  • Crop/zoom functionality of x1.4 and x2.0 partially mitigates fixed lens restrictions (equivalent to 50 and 70 mm lens but with obvious loss of resolution).
  • Nice JPEGs vs. the competition - Sony's stay fairly sharp to 3200 at least, while Nikon and (to a much lesser extent) Canon default JPEGs are losing detail at those ISOs. Adjustable NR on high ISO images in JPEG - setting to LOW can help to preserve details.
  • Problems with focus lock in low light - mostly a standard contrast detection focus issue (but for example OM5 does better job). Fixable in firmware updates? Can take a long time to acquire focus, missing key moments. Slow focus even in good light.
  • Autofocus in very low light, it will hunt and it will miss. Just accept it. In low light it usually gets it, but if you struggle to see with your eyes you will need to switch over to manual and the brilliant zoom feature will save you.

What customers say about "Display"
Fujifilm X100F APS-C Digital Camera - Silver
  • Almost perfect, missing swivel display.
  • The LCD screen is decent and the EVF/OVF combo works as well as can be expected, with only a slight bit of a lag as the "eye sensor" detects your eye and activates the heads up display.
  • The only this I miss it atilt screen.
  • I had to return mine because the left edge of my images were soft. An image is attached. I noticed this on pretty much all my photos as soon as I loaded them onto a big, high-def screen.
  • The controls are different than X100S and the screen is still not touch.
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX1 Full-frame Digital Camera
  • I haven't felt the lack of a view finder (not because I don't know how to use one). I keep the screen brightness at max, and the screen is extremely high quality.
  • Since you will be taking pictures through the LCD Screen of the Sony RX1R, you'd be pleased to know it is big, bright and very high resolution (it has the same size but better screen than the Sony a65's).
  • 5-star to Sony for not including an optical view finder and including a super high-resolution LCD screen instead.
  • MF can sometimes be difficult without the viewfinder. I have both, but I prefer just using the LCD screen.
  • Can't use both optional viewfinder and external flash at the same time.
  • Get the EVF unless you enjoy composing from the rear screen.

What customers say about "Features"
Fujifilm X100F APS-C Digital Camera - Silver
  • Even the beginner could benefit from this camera. It is very easy to use and works great in automatic mode.
  • The weather-sealing is probably the main feature that made me hesitate over and over about making the purchase, knowing my X-Pro.2 with the 23 f.2 had that advantage.
  • Images comparable to the Leica Q I rented, but 1/3 the cot. Many features that I am still learning.
  • here are so many features that it will take some time to learn them all, but it is very versatile.
  • Sometimes the camera seemingly cant decide which mode you want it to be in (viewfinder or LCD), and that may cause you to miss a shot here and there if you're trying to be ultra quick.
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX1 Full-frame Digital Camera
  • Easy to run as full manual camera (excellent manual control dials for exposure, lens aperture, etc) . . . or put on full AUTO, and all shades in between. Good aperture priority mode operation (my personal fav).
  • Many excellent shooting modes, including fascinating watercolor and illustration modes for some really amazing posters (part of Sony's firmware).
  • A decent number of features, like HDR modes, brackets, focus peaking, panos, multiframe noise reduction. BUT issues with this make the CONS list.
  • Macro mode works well with built-in flash (not always the case suggesting they paid attention to this issue).
  • The video recording feature of the RX1R should only be used as an absolute last resort. So disappointing.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
Fujifilm X100F APS-C Digital Camera - Silver
  • Its WiFi feature is excellent if you like to post on social media, and the camera remote app (in my experience) works extremely well for street photography, letting you fire the camera without touching it.
  • I found the wifi remote control from my phone to be very useful, especially during get-togethers with friends and family.
  • WiFi connectivity. It has it. It works. You have to use the FujiFilm app (on the iPhone/iPad) and I really think the app hurts you here – the app gets 1 star.
  • The Android Smartphone WiFi transfer app is clunky and frequently crashed on my Pixel
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX1 Full-frame Digital Camera
  • No battery charger. You plug the camera into a wall adaptor USB port to charge it. Maybe that is an advantage but it scares me to plug a camera into the wall. I'm using the optional out of body charger.
  • No built in WiFi to shoot images over to your phone for a quick share.
  • Charging only in-camera, and only with proprietary micro USB interface - can't charge with typical USB charger (if connected to computer that is on and camera detects an active data line). What is the logic of that? Absolutely bizarre.
