From the instant you spot your shot and switch ON your FUJIFILM X-M1, its high-speed performance will ensure the magic of the moment does not escape your lens.
Ideal for shooting children, pets and other subjects that seem to be constantly on the go, this built-in function lets you record a burst of up to 30 frames at a speed of 5.6 fps and then select the best shot.
From SLEEP to ON in about 0.5 sec. After turning OFF the power, the FUJIFILM X-M1 enters a "sleep" mode (for a maximum of 24 minutes). If the power is turned ON during this time, the FUJIFILM X-M1 "wakes up" instantly, reducing the normal startup time from 1.0 sec. to approx. 0.5 sec. ready for you to frame and capture the moment.
All dials and buttons are arranged on the right for easy and direct operation with just the fingers of your right hand.
FUJIFILM X-M1 comes with a variety of shooting modes. Rotate the Mode Dial to quickly select the mode that suits your shooting scene or purpose.
Twin command dials on the upper control deck are ergonomically positioned for instant adjustment of aperture, shutter speed and exposure compensation. The intuitive ease of analog dial operation invites the exploration of photographic possibilities. Before long, you will be mastering bokeh effects, experimenting with how brightness transforms creative expression, and stretching your skills as a photographer.
Just playback and select the photos you want to transfer and press the Wi-Fi button (Fn: Function button) on the top of the camera body to send photos to your smartphone or tablet. No ID or password. It's that easy.

PREVIEW DEPTH OF FIELD / ISO (Default setting) / SELF-TIMER / IMAGE SIZE / IMAGE QUALITY / DYNAMIC RANGE / FILM SIMULATION / PHOTOMETRY / AE AF LOCK / INSTANT AF / FOCUS MODE / FACE DETECTION / LOCATION INFO SEARCH / MOVIE / RAW

With the ability to tilt the monitor up or down about 90 degrees, you can stretch your arms overhead to frame and shoot high angle shots over a crowd, or low down to capture a different perpective from the ground up.
Adjustable tilting range from a high 85° angle to a low 90° angle.
The large, high-contrast, 920K-dot 3.0-inch LCD features an ultra-wide viewing angle for easy framing of shots even at extreme angles. For clear monitor viewability in bright, outdoor conditions, the FUJIFILM X-M1 is ready with a built-in Sunlight Mode.
Compared with a conventional 3.0-inch wide LCD monitor (16:9 aspect ratio), the FUJIFILM X-M1's generous screen provides approx. 30% more display area, letting you confirm every detail of your subject before you press the shutter.
In addition to 3:2 and 16:9, the FUJIFILM X-M1 expands creative expression with a new 1:1 "square" aspect ratio.
Before shooting, the built-in histogram display provides an at-a-glance confirmation of brightness levels. Together with the command dial on the top control deck, this tool makes it simple to confirm you have the right exposure setting, and take great photos.
Zoom in on the focus point of the captured image to check focal precision, blur, etc.
After shooting, take advantage of the wide array of handy playback functions including Shooting Data display to review which settings were used when the image was taken, Focus Point Zoom for zooming in to check focal precision and picture quality, and "Red Eye Correction" for automatic detection and correction of any red-eye effect in portraits, in-camera, after the shot is taken. Also in the Micro Thumbnail View, you can display up to 100 thumbnail images on screen at once.
The "FRAMING GUIDELINE" option in the shooting menu offers a choice of GRID 9, GRID 24, and HD FRAMING. The "grid" options are a very effective aid to composition when, for example, framing photographs with the subjects arranged along a diagonal.
Up to 100 pictures can be viewed at a time in a 10x10 array of micro thumbnails. Convenient for smooth and comfortable playback.
