Why Stock Photos?
The short answer is that we use stock photos on some listings to save us time and to save you money. The longer answer is that we love to take photos of each and every lens, camera, and accessory, but doing so takes a lot of time and makes it difficult to get everything listed. So, we decided to compromise: take gorgeous photos of some things and charge a little more for them, and use stock photos for other items and charge a little less for those, all else equal.
The items listed here were tested thoroughly by our trained technicians. If they observed any significant flaws, you’ll see them detailed above. If the items listed here are exceptionally awesome, you’ll see that noted above too. Regardless, please remember this is a used item and it’s bound to have at least a microscopic imperfection.
If you're interested in purchasing an item with specific photos and ratings, we don’t blame you one bit. Please visit one of our specific product listings (if available), usually marked with a serial number. If none are currently available, by all means, contact us.
The Fuji X-E1 Camera
The Fuji X-E1 is the second mirrorless camera offering from Fuji. Think of it as the Fuji X-Pro1’s baby brother, featuring the same 16MP APS-C X-Trans CMOS sensor. Where it differs is the viewfinder offering. While the X-Pro1 included Fuji’s hybrid optical viewfinder technology, as well as an electronic viewfinder, the X-E1 foregoes the hybrid and just includes a 2.36 million dot OLED electronic viewfinder with a built-in diopter.The classic designed camera body is made of magnesium alloy, providing a very sturdy build. The 2.8" 460K dot rear LCD allows for easy setting adjustment and image review, but is a bit lower quality than the X-Pro1 . Improved contrast detection means improved autofocus performance, with its 6 fps high speed continuous mode allowing you to shoot in burst. From a control and settings standpoint, the X-E1 is nearly the same as its big brother but adds a built-in pop-up flash for use in very poorly lit conditions. Another addition is a 3.5mm mic input jack, allowing you to use an external microphone when recording video. Video specs otherwise are identical to the X-Pro1, with full HD 1080P at 24fps, recorded in H.264 (MOV) with stereo sound.
This camera is quite the deal. You’re essentially getting a mini X-Pro1 in terms of size and image quality, an improved EVF without the hybrid optical option (wasn’t a fan), and better autofocus performance. Between the two, I prefer X-E1.
