The Fuji X-M1 is a recent addition to my bag, an addition which I've very happy with, performs well and takes up very little space, but with many other camera now topping this tech (think X-T10 etc) is it worth a place in your bag and what can it bring to the table?
-Flip out screen
-Same sensor as X-E1, same quality as all other x-trans sensors
-Simple buttons layout, but with full manual control and RAW shooting
So you have a very small camera which quality wise is the same as the top-of-the-line Fuji X-T1, you of course miss out on the new autofocus systems and a few other bits but shot for shot the quality is the same. This is a great point for me as I can mix in shots with my X-E2's and there is no need for different processing or the worry of a lower quality end result.
Flip out screens, something which when they first came about I thought of as a pointless gimmick not worthy of being on a camera, this was indeed wrong. Being able to shoot from the hip looking down into the screen or up high while still being able to see what you are doing is a very useful tool indeed, it is this feature which made me get the camera the most, at weddings I can wonder around, camera at my hip and shoot away without looking like I'm taking any photos at all.
So you loose a viewfinder, which does make it different to use, but for me this is a backup/walkabout/3rd body kind of camera, so at a wedding I might have a 23/56mm setup on my two X-E2's and the X-M1 with either an 18mm or 12mm lens and use this for the occasional establishing shot or wide angle.
Image quality wise I won't put much, it's great, same as all current X-series cameras, if you have any of the X-E, X-T series or an X-Pro1 camera you'll be happy with the quality it produces.
So that's my short review, you can get a great little camera for a great price (got mine for about £150) that serves as a nice backup body or discreet walkabout camera.
Hope you enjoyed that, feel free to post questions at the bottom.
