How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

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.
