What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Fujifilm X-T1
  • It is simply perfect. Perfect in size, in weight, in creative control (knobs instead of menus for common exposure settings).
  • The X-T1 is helping me break these bad habits. It doesn't feel like a chore to bring it places due to the small body size.
  • Why is that? It's not just the size of the Fuji cameras, although they are smaller and lighter than most full frame cameras, but so, too, are all mirrorless camera systems from all the major companies.
  • I have larger hands, and the accessory Fuji grip was a really worthwhile addition for me, despite adding a little size and weight (and being overpriced). I really like that it includes an Arca-compatible rail.
  • The body is solid and the controls are small but quite good. Battery life is not good, but probably the same as other cameras in this category. It's a great size for travel also.
Fujifilm X-T2 Mirrorless Digital Camera Body - Graphite Silver
  • This is it, great quality, every thing you will want, great lenses, best camera made, light weight just the right size with the options you need!
  • For it's weight, size and price point, I don't believe there is a better camera out there.
  • The X-T2 hits the ideal sweet spot for my medium-sized hands.
  • The best thing about this is the size. It is so small that it is easy to take around.
  • It's a great size, Fuji lenses rock, and this thing has every feature I could ask for. The images look great and I'm very, very pleased.

What customers say about "Imaging"
Fujifilm X-T1
  • I'm really impressed with the camera's low light abilities. I took photos at night and the images came out really nice. Higher ISO produces very usable images, even at ISO 12800. I am currently shooting in medium JPEG, and the images coming out are good enough for use.
  • The image quality and lens selection is excellent. The camera's build quality is excellent. I love this camera!
  • It produces great images in Raw and excellent Jpegs. The xtransII sensor produces the closest to film look that I have seen from any camera that I’ve used. The Fuji film simulations are great. Fuji xf lenses are second to none. Each one is sharp and built extremely well.
  • This camera produces wonderfully sharp images. Much better than any Nikon, Canon, or Sony I have ever used. When you make a large blow-up of an image, it really jumps out at you with the sharpness you get to see.
  • Ability to shoot at very high ISO levels with little image degradation
Fujifilm X-T2 Mirrorless Digital Camera Body - Graphite Silver
  • If you're looking for a rugged, well built camera with excellent image quality, advanced features and lens selection then you can't go wrong with the x-t2.
  • As a photographer with no bias of brand, this camera is Awesome! The images produced by it will have you patting yourself on the back!
  • The ability to easily adjust aperature, ISO, and/or shutter speed without delving into menus is very useful. Image quality is quite good. No complaints so far.
  • The best thing about the camera is the in-camera JPEG images. I always prefer to shoot and edit in RAW, but Fuji's JPEGs are so good. Being able to shoot multiple film emulation types at once is a nice feature as well.
  • The colors are amazing and low-light performance is great as well. Any noise that is present at higher ISOs is fine and monochromatic which allows the image to retain detail.

What customers say about "Display"
Fujifilm X-T1
  • In use, the viewfinder is great. I've set up many of my preferences for the display inside, and it's big and bright and quick and snappy enough to suit all of my needs.
  • When I first tried the camera, I was blown away at the quality of the LCD screen and electronic viewfinder. The EVF is quite fun to look at, but I often find myself using the LCD screen more. It's just really convenient, and allows you to discretely snap a quick photo.
  • The Electronic View Finder (EVF)is large, and gives you a view that rivals an optical viewfinder...except it provides way more information.
  • Rear screen is big and bright. Seen many comments saying it should be a touchscreen (it shouldn't) and it should flip sideways (it shouldn't) - touchscreens should stay far, far away from cameras!
  • LCD screen difficult to see in sunlight, unless battery-robbing "sunlight" mode turned on
Fujifilm X-T2 Mirrorless Digital Camera Body - Graphite Silver
  • Using live view, I can look down at my camera's LCD screen that's flipped up and focus more on composing my shot rather than worrying about if people are noticing me. This means capturing more real-life moments and less time planning out *how* you're going to capture those moments.
  • The rear LCD is likewise big and bright. The multi-articulating screen is nice, but is the only part of the camera that doesn't feel indestructible.
  • The tilting screen helps me more than I ever thought it would. Fuji struck gold with this one.
  • Colors are stunning and being able to see what you're getting right there on the screen or in the viewfinder is incredible.
  • Tilt screen is not articulating the side way tilt is little awkward but I guess as many use it in the field its practical uses shall emerge

What customers say about "Features"
Fujifilm X-T1
  • The features and handling of this camera combined with Fuji glass are a winning combination.
  • The auto mode on the X-T10 seems like a nice feature, perhaps added because of feedback on this camera.
  • The thing with the camera is - some of its features redefine awesomeness; whereas some oversights and choices are just...dumb. That is why, despite the fact that this is probably one of the best cameras ever, I cannot rate it at 5 stars..
  • Haven't used the movie mode that much, since I don't do video. From what I've seen, it's adequate.
  • The HDR feature is worthless - auto bracketing is better, but not as good as some DSLRs
Fujifilm X-T2 Mirrorless Digital Camera Body - Graphite Silver
  • Loving this camera so far. So many great features and a robust ecosystem. Doesn’t get the love of other brands but this is a great all around camera.
  • onsidering latest firmware update one can say I just downloaded brand new camera. The list of available features keeps growing and easily could be compared to latest DSLRs.
  • Being able to shoot multiple film emulation types at once is a nice feature as well.
  • It’s highly customizable, yet will turn out fantastic shots in full auto mode.
  • The fact that AF can be locked and override autofocus was also a draw for me. [edit Oct 18, 2016 in AF+MF you can use the manual focus ring to adjust focus which is useful in macro mode if the camera is focusing on the wrong part of the frame. ]

What customers say about "Connectivity"
Fujifilm X-T1
  • I have to say that the wifi connection to the phone is very cool. It works flawlessly and is fast.
  • I had no problems connecting my camera to my smartphone; copying pictures or remotely controlling the camera
  • The WiFi button on the top plate worked well with the Fuji App on my Ipad. I could control the camera (although I don't know what I would use that function for) and I could import pictures into the Ipad (very useful).
  • The WiFi connectivity (to an Android tablet in my case) is very cool. I've only just tried it out, but this wireless remote control feature could be very useful.
  • Wifi works well with an ipad mini.
Fujifilm X-T2 Mirrorless Digital Camera Body - Graphite Silver
  • Until they fix this, I can't recommend this camera. Wifi connectivity is basic in cameras a fraction this price.
  • I love the WiFi because you can get your pictures on you phone right away and post it on social media.
  • So far my only complaint is the WIFI has been a bit spotty. I have had some trouble connecting the camera to my iPhone 6.
  • The only downside to the camera is the app for the phone. It only connects about 1/2 the time, and when it does, it's a bit clunky. That'll take some refining, but nothing against the performance of the camera or lens.
  • There is no built in GPS so geotagging requires a connection to the fujifilm cam remote on your phone to utilize the phones GPS. Given that built in GPS is available on much cheaper and less feature ridden cameras this is a little disappointing.
