hulyss, hi - wonderful portraits on your site! interested to hear how well (or not) the x-t1 & lenses fit your work.
alan - looks like you've gotten beyond the "fuji foliage" debate. nice stream shot!
Thanks for the kind words Mike. The foliage issue is still "work in progress" but not causing me too much trouble.

Thanks for the comment Hulyss. I wondered about the X-pro1 when I saw the pic of your "pile of crap"!!!! this morning
A few more from the Yosemite trip, seriously too many pictures to post from that trip. The first two are actually in Kings Canyon National Park and the fruit stand driving between the two. Have a great weekend everyone!

I've been shooting with the Xt1 and have to say that I don't really like the way it renders highlights. It always seems too hot or blown out and the colors are just a tad too saturated. What if you don't want a film simulation? These recent pics of Yosemite are nice, but the colors seem odd. Don't get me wrong the Xt1 is a great camera, but i'm starting to think of this camera as a great black and white digital cam instead because of how Fuji's sensor handles luminance - which is very good.
The shooting mode button seems to always get reset when changing ISO, and that 4 way button is kinda fiddly too.

My little observations, after one day of use, are pretty enthusiast. First, you speak about the highlights. Seriously I find very difficult to burn any highlights with it. I just did a weeding with it and so far, I was unable to burn the dress even under harsh mid afternoon sun. The metering dial should be used wisely if you want my opinion
Second you speak about color mode. Well, the camera apply her filters only on jpeg. The raws are raw. When you open it in lightroom, it will pop up without any fuji effect or whatever. You need to set it in Lightroom to apply the fuji films simulation. If your colors still too rich to your taste, you can set up your own custom color in the camera and register it on a custom mode.
Third, I do not know how you manage to reset your drive mode dial when changing ISO setting. I just tried and it seems impossible or you need to grab it with the ISO dial.
The learning curve of this camera seems to be bigger than the D800, for example, because there is a lot more functions packed in a tinier body.
I agree with the 4 way buttons, they are a little cheap but lets call it a compromise on a soo complete little work horse camera.
Just my little rapport after 1 day of use

I only shoot RAW, so understand about the color, but i'm still on the fence. I also shoot w/spot as my metering option, always have. I haven't tried converting a color film filter to the RAW, but will try that soon. I usually shoot manual, but will try the EC in auto. Thanks.

I am definitely not a professional, furthest from it probably. These were all RAW files then converted in LR with the Velvia color profile. I liked the extra saturated colors in these landscapes, and being that I process files for just me I only have my self to please. Don't let my images sway you one way or another - take it from the others who know more than me as for the highlights in the tree and moss picture, those were blown out on purpose to showcase certain aspects and to get the look I wanted. As I said, I'm am definitely not a pro and I'm working on these types of things as I go.
Your images are really nice- excellent compositions too. I'm learning the camera and sometimes there's different ways to get the same result. I'll post some images soon.
It is really hard to get a "tone of voice" across in these posts, so just to clear the air I wasn't trying to be harsh or defend my ways or pictures in any way. I'm totally open for comments and critiques, in fact. Just wanted to make it clear that my images may not be the best judge for all things technical.
I appreciate the compliment. I hope that my images improve over time, as my processing skills get better.

More on my blog.. dont normally link to my blog, but I am on holiday and dont want to spend all my time in front of the mac.. enjoy!
Perhaps I got a lemon, but this little camera is so frustrating! I got the WiFi to upload once, so that was pretty cool, but the connection cannot be re-established for whatever reason. Fuji couldn't include a cheap USB cable for those "just in case it doesn't work" moments? The ISO dial while a nice touch shouldn't have to be unlocked for every detent, just make the click stops tight enough so as to not nudge them. When holding the camera in the right hand you need a little leverage to both push and turn the ISO dial which almost always changes the shooting mode by somehow moving the switch in front. I know, seems unlikely, but there it is. This is not conducive to intuitive photography, IMO. Also, there's too many menus that have to make use of the crappy 4 way D button. Sony FE wides couldn't come any sooner!

johnny: you could start a "not fun with" thread ...
of course it likely wouldn't have many pics in it. Which is the reason for this "fun with" thread in the first place, and the pleasure posters take in participating.

I was lucky that it was overcast. In bright sunlight, that thing is impossible to expose properly.

The XT-1 is a very good weeding machine. No time to use it atm but it is a good camera, for sure.

One of my latest attempts to return to b&w, after years of too much colors.

I shoot 100% color but what I hang on my walls is almost always B&W by way of conversion from color.

What does a working photographer do on holiday? He takes pics of course... So far I have been on a full days shoot in Bristol and shot a wedding in Scotland...
Here is a shot from my day in Bristol with my two photogfriends Damien Lovegrove and Chris Hanley.. more to come
X-T1 and 56mm natural light.
Thanks for your kind words, Jim and Philip
The day after the wedding the newlyweds showed us around the local sights in the scottish borders, so I took the chance to get some extra shots of theme, here enjoying the view of Leaderfoot Viaduct.
Shot with the built in pano function on the X-T1 with the 35mm wide open.
It´s like a scene from some dream sequence.
But, you do need at least one more son to get a repetitive sequence of children that better matches the light poles.
So you really should discus this with your wife, for the sake of art.
And then in a few year you can be retaking this photo.
I´ll be here waiting

I was doing the tourist thing in London today and I spotted this guy doing some street shooting outside the British Museum, so I decided to "shoot the shooter" I got of a few shots before being busted and had a nice chat with the guy and finished off with an impromptu portrait. First two shots X-T1 with 35mm and last two with X-Pro1 and 23mm
