On vacation with the Fuji X-E1

I rented a Fuji X-E1 and Fujinon XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4 R LM OIS to play around with during a recent family vacation to Sandbridge in Virginia Beach. Although I was disappointed in the camera I did capture decent images for the few days I had the X-E1.

The following have been lightly processed in Adobe Lightroom; auto tone, some cropping, and auto leveling.

The first two images are very similar but one is a HDR from three bracket images combined in Photomatix Pro.

My brother-in-law took this portrait of me with my wife and kids. I wanted to capture some sunset images from the nearby nature preserve. I was concerned that I wouldn’t make it to the preserve in time. I handed the camera to my brother-in-law. He still shoots his DSLR in full auto mode.

I found it challenging to photograph the flying gulls. I’ve done it before with my Nikon but found it quite challenging with the Fuji. It was difficult to track the birds using the electronic viewfinder.

The X-E1 has a panorama mode. In this mode, I held the shutter down while panning slowly from right or left. It took several tries but I felt I got the hang of it.
