The X-E2 is the model in Fujifilm’s X line of mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras that falls somewhere in the between of the company’s more budget-friendly X-M1 and X-A1 twins and the company’s unabashedly high-end X-Pro1 and X-T1 cameras. It is an upgrade of the X-E1, which received our Gold award in our evaluation because to its exceptional image quality as well as its blend of “old school” handling, which we found to be quite appealing.

Due to the fact that both the X-E2 and the X-E1 have the same core body design and control layout, at first glance, the two ships give the impression of being almost similar to one another. However, there are several nuances that differentiate the two types from one another. It keeps the same top-plate construction as its predecessor, complete with analogue knobs for adjusting the shutter speed and exposure, and it keeps the same 2.36 million dot OLED electronic viewfinder as its predecessor. Although their positioning is relatively comparable to that of the X-E1, the rear of the camera is still covered with buttons. Nonetheless, the functions of the buttons have been rethought and rearranged.
The X-E2 utilizes the same X-Trans CMOS II sensor that was used in the X100S when it was first released. This sensor, in conjunction with the EXR Processor II, offers significantly faster AF speed. The on-chip phase detection features that it utilizes for focusing contribute to the sensor’s overall functionality. The sensor and the CPU are the two most notable new features. It also comes pre-loaded with the straightforward and user-friendly Wi-Fi technology developed by Fujifilm, which can be used for the transfer and sharing of images. There is also a much better back screen, which is touted as having a 3 inch, 1.04 million dot, 3:2 aspect ratio display, in addition to a whole host of other modifications and improvements. This is in addition to the fact that there is also a much better front screen. The final product is a camera that not only maintains all of the characteristics of its predecessor that were regarded as the device’s most admirable qualities, but also has significant enhancements over its predecessor.

The Fujifilm X-E2 is a camera that is aimed squarely at photography enthusiasts and is capable of capturing high-quality photographs. Direct control knobs and a wealth of customization options contribute to an exciting shooting experience, which, in turn, results in remarkable production. Wi-Fi and raw conversion capabilities built into the camera make it simple to share photographs. The only thing that’s disappointing is the video, which doesn’t really do anything.
- Wonderful photos taken with high ISO.
- Continuous shooting at 7 frames per second.
- It has a sharp OLED EVF.
- Excellent control system.
- A flash that is integrated.
- 1080p60 video with a microphone input is available.
- A little bit of a challenge to focus on.
- There is no support for NFC on integrated Wi-Fi.
- Raw capture can only go up to an ISO of 6400.
