I'm filming a field test of the new Fuji XF1 tomorrow, and I was looking for suggestions on any specifics you may be curious about. Anything you'd like us to look at specifically?

One obvious question is how quick it is to start up - say you see something interesting, you pull it out of your shirt / jeans pocket, and then... the magical startup sequence! Is it comparable to other cameras or is it noticeably slower?
Also, does it have an automatic panorama mode?

Also how fast it is from standby mode to taking a shot. Say you have it hanging from your neck with the lens already set in standby mode and see something you need to snap.
Oh, and look into the missing AEL/AFL.

Once you have the lens extracted, startup is less than a second, and that's on the prototype. Auto-pano is included.

How well it actually handles when taking a photograph, and how easy or difficult it is to alter key settings to get the photo that you, the user want to capture.
Do you have to delve through far too many menu options to get to the vital settings you want to alter or can these be accessed directly and speedily.
What about battery life and charging, speed of writing to the memory card, also can you add ND, Polarising , effects filters to the lens, if so how ?
Does it have the ability for wired shutter release or IR etc.
Will it actually fit into your pocket, can you easily see the screen in bright conditions.
These are important considerations for me as a potential buyer and user to help me select the 'right' camera or 'best'compromise for me and of course cost !
Thanks, looking forward to seeing your review soon !

This is just a sneak peak, instead of a review as the XF1 we received was still very early firmware.

Excellent video. Love the whole 20's smoking jacket thing he he. The camera certainly looks at home in that setting. The real good thing about that camera is that not only does it look good but it performs really well also. I really really don't need one but I really really want one!!

Nice video indeed. Looks like Fuji really worked on getting the control part right.
AF speed looks good, and the manual zoom is unique in this category.
Could be a real winner, but it will all depend on how far behind the RX100 it ends up being in image quality.
I've sold off some DSLR lenses I wasn't really using anyway, I can feel GAS sneaking up on me..
