Fujifilm X-S1 Digital Camera Review$799.95
Thanks to the big, comfortable chassis and smart control scheme, the X-S1 handles almost as well as a mid-range DSLR. Anyone who has used previous Fuji HS-series superzooms should feel right at home. Hands-on shooters will appreciate the myriad manual shooting modes and direct-access controls, including two assignable Fn buttons, while both auto modes (standard and EXR) are easy and reliable. The manual zoom control is smooth as a hot knife through cheddar, and thanks to the clear, responsive electronic viewfinder, the focus ring on the lens is actually worth using. It's a decently quick shooter, too with speedy burst shooting and respectable autofocus and shot-to-shot times. The downside to a big body is, of course, added weight and bulk—you'll want to use the neck strap and grip the camera with both hands. Overall, the X-S1 handles better than any superzoom out there.
