Just got the XE-2s kit with the 18-55mm f/2.8-4 lens on Monday. Haven't been able to do much shooting with it yet, but wanted some suggestions about a good starting point on the settings. Such as Color, Auto Iso, size of Jpeg or Jpeg + Raw and others.
I really like the way the Q button displays all of the selections.

Shoot RAW. Auto ISO, Aperture priority. Decide everything else when you're back home...

Agreed, I would also set your auto iso high limit to 6400 and the minimum shutter speed to 1/400 if your doing event or street shooting.

Thanks for the suggestions. I guess that I'll take it off 1/15th sec. I'm getting tired of all that blur.

Here's a shot I took a few days ago before I did any adjustments. I shot it in JPEG. Don't be too hard on me since it was not done in RAW. I'm still learning the camera and I'm almost 70.

Dave, I am 70 and new with the XT1...
I really like jpeg, with Velvia set in film simulation...
There a lots of choices in film simulation and everyone has their favorites

Thanks for the reply Cheryl

I haven't tried any of the film simulations yet, but I'm impressed with the JPEG output. I forgot to mention, I also have cataracts that are now eligible for removal. I chose to get glasses for now though. Probably elect to get surgery next year. Unfortunately, my shooting eye ( right ) is the worst. I've been using my left eye with my Nikon. I haven't tried my left eye on the Fuji because the finder is on the extreme left side.

I changed a few of the settings and went to a local park and took this.
I changed min ss to 1/80, max ISO 3200, aperture priority ( f/4.5 was used ) and color +1.
