Fujifilm X-E1 + Fujinon XF18-55mmF2.8-4 R LM OIS

By on August 10th, 2013 in Reviews

I rented a Fujifilm X-E1 and Fujinon XF18-55mmF2.8-4 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. Read my review after taking a look at some of the images I captured with this camera and lens combination.

The following have been lightly processed in Adobe Lightroom; auto tone, some cropping, and auto levelling. The first two images are very similar but one is an 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. It was difficult to track the birds using the electronic viewfinder. It's easily done with the optical viewfinder of my Nikon D5100 but I found it quite challenging with the Fujifilm X-E1.

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.
