Other Features

Supports Video Capability

The Fujifilm X-S1 supports video capability, as do most of the other digital cameras of a similar age and spec to this camera.

We compared all the other cameras which support video capability to this digital camera and we think because of their better review scores, the Pentax Q + SMC PENTAX 5-15mm (£434.07), and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ330 (£427) are also worth considering.

We think you might also be interested in other cameras which also support video capability including the Olympus E-PM1.
