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

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 Island 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.

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 wasn’t easy 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.
