There is also £100 cash back from fuji on the fuji 35mm f1.4 lens.

So potentially you could buy the camera wait for the credit from amazon and use it on the lens. Then get another £100 cash back from fuji on the lens.

Looks like one my grandad had! Hope it takes better pictures.

Remember it's "promotional" credit, not gift balance, it expires sometime in Jan/14 and can't be used on non amazon stuff.

Just bought the x20 last month, else will go for it. Very satisfy the indoor performance of x20 . If the view finder can be more than 85% and you won't see the lens head in the view finder, that will bw better

David49 -think that makes it fashionable lol

Bit confused as to what you can actually spend the credit on....
It says "any product you like sold by Amazon.co.uk (“Promotional Item(s)”)." So is that any item sold by Amazon or only items that are in a promotion sold by Amazon?

Very tempted though

Most things sold by Amazon themselves I think. I used my credit to buy, among other things, a saw and a lens filter. None were on promotion themselves, but had discounts.

And the camera is really excellent. If you don't want to do much post processing, the out of camera jpgs are, IMO, impossible to beat. Fuji colours have a good reputation among many and the low light colours are very, very good too. The image stabilisation is more effective than I expected. For the price I'd say nothing can touch it really.

Dpreview has an in depth review for it. Bare in mind their rating was for when the camera was over £700.

I have the X10, and it's a terrific little camera. Much easier to carry around than my Canon 550D. Wondering if I should consider this as an upgrade... Some of my X10 pics, great colours in any sunset shots flickr.com/pho…10/

Im sold! happy Christmas to me

Bargain. Why are there so many tempting cameras to buy this year?
Wish I wasn't such a sucker for a bargain.

It's a different kettle of fish than the NEX-6 to be honest, more like the 5T / 5R...
I bought a NEX-6 this month from Amazon and am tempted to return it with cameras as good as this knocking about at £250ish though.

Looks a cracker for a small sized camera. Just getting into photography and bought a Nikon D3100 so if the size starts getting on my nerves might look into something like this.

True, this doesn't have a viewfinder. But it takes better photos, arguably better flash and I'm annoyed with my nex.

On the Nex, AF isn't great despite being phase. In low light it hunts loads.

What annoys me also is the flashotshoe is pretty much useless.
I have the laea2 adapter but if I want the small flash they do (hvlf20m) it breaks easily . Only other flash makes camera massive. The built in flash on nex6 casts shadows with laea2+lens.


So, I'm selling the nex6, getting this and an A58 so I can use my alpha lenses. May keep the nex lenses and see what sony do next year

I agree with you mate, am more than a little underwhelmed by my NEX-6 tbh, in spite of it having hybrid AF, I find it to be absolutely no better than my old 5N. Fortunately, I can send it back before the end of January if I decide to change, and I've fancied a Fuji for a while, especially after seeing the build quality in John Lewis, it's a beautiful piece of kit.
I have far too many cameras! It's a type of OCD I think

There are a few people on this thread who have mentioned sending cameras back. Could you tell me please which retailer accepts opened returns? This is a very tempting offer but I really had my eyes on something else. Maybe a quick trial of this one could change my mind..

Distance selling regulations allow you to open box and try and return within 7 days.

""The right to cancel allows the consumer time to examine the goods or services, as they would have when buying in a shop. The cooling off period starts when the contract is concluded and ends 7 working days after the day the goods are received (for services, 7 working days after the order is made). However, if a service starts immediately, before the end of the cooling off period, the consumer must be informed (in a durable medium) that they will not be able to cancel once it starts. "

Thanks Crunchie. I think I'll give it a go in that case!!

Where does the film go?

In the museum.

The kit lens isn't especially fast, but it does have a good quality sensor. My only reservation is the limited options for lenses plus their cost.

It doesn't, the x-trans sensors are on a different league, more like on the 5dMKII type.

S100 has a tiny sensor and is a compact camera (1/1.8") .
This is an interchangeable lens camera with a sensor much much bigger. (Aps-c) so image quality will be far better.

If you select the dark lighting then when compared to the nex6, this seems to keep detail and has less noise.
To be taken with a bit if a pinch of salt though seeing as they have different lenses and probably taken in auto mode.


Edited by: "cRuNcHiE" 25th Dec 2013

Agree, the lens may not be fast (have a large aperture) though it's similar to the competition. But it's sharp for a kit zoom, focuses silently and quickly most of the time and the OIS is very effective. For the money I'd say it's a great complete kit.

Has anyone had Amazon credit this way before??? ....how does it work? Is there an expiry or minimum spend in order to use it??

If only Fuji could design a camera that had usable video capabilities. This one continues their tradition of creating cameras with a technical set of specifications that reviews can parrot off, but nobody ever actually tries to shoot video seriously with one, so nobody ever discovers how unusable it all is. And yet it’s only a few simple steps away from being a superb video machine.

Follow the link in the Special Offer blurb on the Amazon landing page? It's all there!

Just noticed there is £100 cash back from fuji on the 35mm f1.4lens!

It's currently £408, so if you use the £100 credit from buying the camera , then allow for the £100 cash back from fuji for the lens, it's £208!!

So after all cash back, £477 for the camera plus stock lens plus 35mm prime. Gotta be worth it!

EDIT: oops it's £577 cost.

You maths might be wrong but that's definitely a good use for your Amazon credit...

I have the xpro1. If you can do without the viewfinder then this is an incredibly good deal. Low light performance with this sensor is superb, in answer to the earlier question.

You hear "professional quality" said so often about things that are certainly not but in this case it's actually true - or at least very close. While it's not as fast as a good DSLR, the output really can be incredible without much, sometimes any, tweaking afterwards.

£269 seems too good to be true really and I hope that won't put people off thinking it's too cheap to be "that" good. Even with the kit lens that it comes with it's brilliant. Plus, unlike most kit lenses, it's 16mm at the wide end while most are 18mm. Doesn't sound significant but it really is.

Amazing photos.

I'm so used to using a 5N / R / T, think I could cope again without a viewfinder.
... Think the 6 is going back.

How does it compare with the nx1100 which is 299 with a tab 2 and adobe … How does it compare with the nx1100 which is 299 with a tab 2 and adobe at currys?



That's a great deal - 3 year warranty too. I'd still go with the Fuji but if you need the tablet and Lightroom then it's hard to argue.

Specs-wise, only going on a quick look at the specs on the Currys website, the main differences seem to be a tilt screen on the Fuji, and quite a bit wider at the wide end of the Fuji lens too. Higher resolution output from the Samsung though I find 16mp plenty. Both have wifi. Maybe do a search on Flickr for pictures from both cameras and see if that helps make a decision.

Edit - flash is built in on the Fuji. I've found Fuji's fill flash, especially, to do a remarkable job of not blowing things out. I have no experience of Samsung flash quality though. The fuji also has a couple of dedicated dials up top.
