So what setting are people using to get the best looking OOC jpegs for portraits and landscapes? I have tried different setting but haven't gotten the results that people are posting here so I have stuck with RAW so far.

Portraits I use NegH with -1 shadow +1 color +1 sharp -2 NR

Landscape is a bit trickier as sometimes I can do Velvia with +2 color -1 shadow, other times 0 color. Easiest to shoot some raw and in-camera process to get a feel for the jpegs.


No shame in using in camera for low volume. Fuji does their jpegs in such a way that it is really hard for me to duplicate in LR and trust me, I have tried.

Thank you for the reply. I'm finding that same that the raw that I convert in camera are hard to replicate via LR or PN.

I haven't been around in a while and I'm awed by the past many pages of wonderful work by so many people. Great stuff!

Here are a few with X-E1 and Super Takumar 105mm f/2.8

Nice set! Which adapter are you using? Are there any that are better than others? I see the Metabones units and they are pricey!


Thanks, kwoodard! These were done using a cheap Fotodiox M42-EOS adapter on a Fotodiox EOS-FX adapter. (A Fotodiox M42-FX adapter will be here today! )

What a fascinating location Jordan. I look forward to see more.


Went out yesterday afternoon and took this (X-E1 and XF14mm)...

Jordan and Helena, beautiful work! I am intrigued with the Rokinon 8mm... Is it a rectilinear lens or a fisheye?

Thanks! The rokinon 8mm is a fisheye. I did some distortion correction on this shot, and that shot is cropped a little bit.

One more from today, this is with the 14/2.8. Dear lord is this lens good. I've shot this location several times before. With the 30D and Tokina 12-24, with the 1Ds II and 17-40L, with the GH2 and Panasonic 7-14, and now with this. Nothing I've used before comes even close to the resolution and quality I'm getting with this combo.

Helena..nice images..looks like winter has arrived a little early...

Jman..nice as well. I'm hoping to put the 14 2.8 to use this weekend.

Couple quick snaps from a walk today with the Fuji XE-1 and 35 1.4 combo. With all the hype on the new gear releases it's tough to imagine that IQ would be better than this or I would need anything better. Bokeh and sharpness wide open on the 35 1.4 are crazy good...

Really nice colors and atmosphere Michael! Makes me want to be there.


Interesting weather today, so we went to a nearby lake. The light was beautiful, at times almost surreal. It made the photos look flat though (it's not the camera's fault, because I took some with RX1 and they look the same), but I left them as they are, since that is what it looked like in real life too. X-E1 and XF 14mm as usual.

Btw. #3 and 4 are taken from almost the same spot, one hour apart.

Took out the XE-1 and 14 2.8 in absolute crappy flat dull light today. Pretty much only option was black and white due to heavy overcast. Shot in black and white and just took a few quick ones.
