An impressive amount of detail can be captured by the Fuji X-E1's 16.1 million pixel sensor. This was shot using the 60mm f/2.8 macro lens.

Colours straight from the Fuji X-E1 are bright and punchy, without being overly saturated. This was shot in the Provia standard film simulation.

As we can see here, the Fuji X-E1's metering has struggled a little with a scene of extreme lighting contrasts.

The new 18-55mm f/2.8-4 lens is a versatile optic, making the Fuji X-E1 a great camera to use every day.

Several film simulation modes are available, including Provia, Astia and Velvia from the classic film stocks of Fuji's analogue days. This is Monochrome+Red Filter.

Three different shooting ratios can be chosen, to include 3:2 (as standard), 16:9 (widescreen) and this square crop of 1:1.

The camera's automatic white balance has done a good job of producing accurate white colours, while the metering has done well in a shaded area with a bright rear light source.
