Fujifilm X-E2

25 Reasons why Fujifilm X-E2 is better

than the average

1.Measurably larger sensor
23.6 x 15.6mmvs 14.6 x 10.8mm (the average)
vs 81.2 x 25.4mm (best: Polaroid Snap)
The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.
2.Significantly more focus points
49vs 37 (the average)
vs 425 (best: Sony Alpha a6500)
The more focus points the more flexibility in picking which part of the scene to focus on. They also give the image sensor a better probability in identifying the right area of the scene to focus on in more automatic modes.
350gvs 376g (the average)
vs 65.5g (best: HTC Re)
4.Appreciably better video recording quality
1,080 x 60fpsvs 1,003 x 36.4fps (the average)
vs 2,160 x 60fps (best: Canon EOS 1D X Mark II)
5.Has WiFi
Yesvs No (67% don't have it)
The device can connect to WiFi.
6.Faster video autofocus due to a phase detection autofocus when shooting movies
Yesvs No (89% don't have it)
A phase detection autofocus is much faster than a contrast detection autofocus and allows sharper movies.
7.Has a stereo microphone
Yesvs No (53% don't have it)
A stereo microphone allows to record audio files or movies in stereo without an external microphone.
8.Somewhat more battery power
1260mAhvs 1212mAh (the average)
vs 4360mAh (best: Samsung Galaxy NX Mirrorless)
75mmvs 97mm (the average)
vs 39mm (best: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V)
10.Vastly higher resolution (screen)
1040000k dotsvs 43617k dots (the average)
vs 1230000k dots (best: Fujifilm FinePix X-Pro1)
A higher screen resolution provides a sharper image, making it easier to review your photos.
11.Substantially less body volume
358cm³vs 531cm³ (the average)
vs 65.29cm³ (best: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX55)
12.Has a microphone in
Yesvs No (77% don't have it)
A microphone port allows connecting external high-end or specialized microphones.
37mmvs 51mm (the average)
vs 13mm (best: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX55)
14.Can create panoramas in-camera
Yesvs No (64% don't have it)
It allows you to take multiple photos capturing different parts of the scene, and then joins them together into a single photo.
15.A shade bigger screen size
3"vs 3" (the average)
vs 4.8" (best: Samsung Galaxy Camera (Wi-Fi))
The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
16.Faster photo autofocus due to a phase detection autofocus when shooting pictures
Yesvs No (71% don't have it)
A phase detection autofocus is much faster than a contrast detection autofocus and allows sharper images.
17.Has sensor shift stabilization
Yesvs No (83% don't have it)
With sensor shift, the image sensor (rather than the lens) moves to counterbalance any vibration of the camera. This means the image will be stabilised regardless of what lens is being used.
18.Is a system camera
Yesvs No (58% don't have it)
A system camera has lots of changeable parts such as lenses, flashes and other accessories. They offer greater flexibility than compact cameras.
19.Explicitly less shutter lag
0.05svs 16.33s (the average)
vs 0.00025s (best: Leica M Typ 240)
The amount of time it takes the camera to take a photo, without having to focus.
20.Has an electronic viewfinder
Yesvs No (84% don't have it)
An electronic viewfinder (or EVF) is a small display showing the image. Benefits of these over optical viewfinders include: they show more of the image, they can be more compact, focusing is easier with digital zoom, and they can also sometimes have extra info on the display, eg. a live histogram.
21.Can be controlled remotely
Yesvs No (57% don't have it)
A remote control allows you to control the device remotely. The remote control can be included or optional.
22.Marginally more viewfinder coverage
100%vs 98% (the average)
vs 100% (best: Sony A7)
With 100% coverage you can compose the image correctly when you capture the photo. With less than full coverage you may have to crop your photos afterwards to get them looking perfect.
23.Has manual shutter speed
Yesvs No (56% don't have it)
This allows to manually set the shutter speed.
24.Appreciably less startup delay
0.5svs 34.8s (the average)
vs 0.01s (best: Nikon D70)
It takes less time for the camera to turn on and take a first picture.
25.Significantly higher resolution (EVF)
2360000k dotsvs 82144k dots (the average)
vs 2360000k dots (best: Fujifilm X-E1)
A higher EVF (electronic viewfinder) resolution provides a crisper image, and produces a view more comparable to an optical viewfinder.
