    The AF with the 60mm lens is very bad. Also the low EVF refresh rate is annoying.

    Re: Fun with the Fuji X-E1

    My XE1 should arrive tomorrow (or rather, today). I was an early adopter of the XPro1, returned it after the aperture blade chatter annoyed me too much. But meaning to re-get the XPro1 (when the chatter was resolved) for a while until the XE1 came along. Hopefully, the XE1 will be every bit as good, minus the OVF.

    Hard to tell from this shot, but was there much water damage?

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    nope, not much flooding at all. we got really lucky, the eye passed north of delaware. the worst of the flooding was the inlet bridge, and a section of the city of wilmington that's built on marsh. i grabbed a screenshot of the inlet bridge off of the traffic cameras at work, they're at the bottom. but that's a bridge on a strip of beach that's a few hundred feet wide between a bay and the ocean.







    screenshots of traffic cameras:
    it looks bad, but very few people live around here, and there are no businesses other than 1 marina which is fine. it's just a narrow strip of sandy beach between a large inlet and the ocean.

    indian river inlet bridge (just finished construction this summer)


    rt 1 in dewey which is just north of the bridge (under 4+ feet of water)

    Re: Fun with the Fuji X-E1

    I took delivery of an excellent copy of the 30/1.4; it's on its way to Australia now (I flew from Michigan to Edmonton today). The X-E1 should be in Australia within 2–3 weeks (in Monza's capable hands!).

    I intend to use the excellent CV 12/5.6 and a Rokkor 50/1.4 (thanks Jim R!), both on adapters, until the Fuji equivalents materialise. And as for RAW processing, I will shoot the hi-rez jpegs plus raw until a decent processor comes into being.

    For me, the form factor of the X-E1, its UI, plus APS-C X-Trans, and the stellar 30/1.4 was enough to make me abandon 4/3rds, even though some of the lenses are excellent.

    Let's see how it all works out!

    Hi Kit:

    Did you mean Fujinon 35mm 1.4? Fuji x-pro1 and x-e1 are both superb cameras but think twice if you want to abandon m4/3ds as many including me have found that they complement each other very well.

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    thanks guys.

    teeraash i use lightroom unless i get a bad case of the smudgies and then i'll use dcraw.

    lightroom editing is pretty basic and the numbers change for every image. wb sliders are adjusted first and usually reviewed at the end before exporting too. then i'll an increase in contrast, set the black and white points and then bring the shadows up a bit and the highlights down. all done to taste based on the image. i may or may not touch the vibrance slider (i did on the yellow, 10, didn't on the purple). clarity is usually between 15-25, but it's been 0 before and as high as 35. sharpening is usually around 48 amount, 2.8 radius, and adjust the masking slider until i see outlines.

    resize and smart sharpen if needed (not needed for these last two) in photoshop.

    Re: Fun with the Fuji X-E1

    Yes, I meant the Fuji 35/1.4. This will be my main lens. I already own a perfect copy of the CV 12/5.6 and the Fuji adapter.

    My reasons for abandoning 4/3rds is not really anything to do with that system; it's much more about wanting a one-camera system, and I do prefer the APS-C sensor, too.

    Hi scifitographer,

    Many thanks for the detailed explanation. When you said "and adjust the masking slider until i see outlines", does this mean that you started with high masking and then lowered its value?

    sorry, that part wasn't so clear. i start at 0 and i'll hold in the alt button on my keyboard while dragging the slider. at 0 (with the alt button held in) everything will turn white. if it's white then it gets sharpened, if it's black then it doesn't get sharpened. as i move the slider to the right (still holding in the alt button) the white will turn to black based on lines and details in the image. i'll keep sliding until i see a lot of black with white outlines around the main details. so in a sky with clouds i'll see a black sky with white outlines around the clouds and portions inside the clouds.

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    Simply put, I am in awe of this camera. It is the closest thing to the Contax G2 yet, and the output is blistering sharp and creamy with the 35 1.4.

    For these shots I used a 4 stop ND filter so I could shoot wide open in bright sun and processed with VSCO (grain added).

    Many thanks. This technique will be very useful to me and others that doesn't have near perfect eyesight.

    Re: Fun with the Fuji X-E1

    I Just goy my XE-1 with the 35/1.4 from T-Dimensions, I got a great price and it took 2 days to get here from HK, amazing.

    I also purchased a used 60, then waiting for 2013 and the 24mm.

    My only gripe coming from a NEX-7 is even though they may share the same EVF,
    The XE-1 EVF does not give real time feedback, ie. when just looking through the EVF the exposure looks correct, but it's not, lets say I am shooting in Manual mode, and does not simulate different film types.

    My workaround is to assign the FN button to DOF preview, then it does stop down the lens, yet shutter speed has no effect on evf display.

    I hope Fuji fixes this in a FW upgrade. On the Sony you have the choice of either show affects, or not.
