Engadget Summary

Fuji's X-A1 is the company's cheapest compact to date, offering solid image quality but lacking the premium feel of their more expensive models. While What Digital Camera compliments the X-A1's "retro styling that matches the classic rangefinder look," Pocket-Lint feels the old-school design is covered in "unconvincing faux leather." The X-A1 also suffers from "disappointing" video quality, according to Expert Reviews, but at least Fuji didn't skimp on image quality, with TechRadar saying the X-A1 is capable of "superb images," and the Phoblographer says "the X-A1 provides some beautiful results." If you don't mind your retro styling feeling just a bit cheap, the X-A1 offers great images in an affordable package.
