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

With the X-E1 Fuji brings its retro-rangefinder style to a new interchangeable-lens system, and, as Photography Blog puts it, succeeds in "offering the same outstanding image quality and impeccable handling" as Fuji's more expensive X-Pro 1. Gizmodo concurs, saying "Fuji might mimic retro rangefinders, but the results looks damn good, so it's hard to complain." However, Gizmodo also points out that this is a camera that is best for "purist photographers who want high image quality over versatility," and that "this isn't a camera for video, for in-camera effects, wi-fi, or scene modes," given its "mediocre autofocus, crappy video mode, and weird RAW noise patterns." But if you're prepared to do a little work, you'll be rewarded with images that Photography Blog calls "fantastic."
