Shared this on another thread, however thought some might be interested to see how the new X-T1 does with the 18-55 f2.8-f4 lens in RAW processed with PhotoNinja at ISO6400. My favorite guitar of course, a Martin D42. The room was actually darker than it appears but the camera brought up the exposure nicely and not the noise. A very freeing experience to know you can shoot with near careless abandon where ISO is concerned.

Yo Jman13, nice to see night shots without the noise isn't it? So what are you processing in? RAW or Jpeg?

These are all RAW. The first three are in Photo Ninja...last one is in ACR...PN didn't do a good job with the blown yellows on the tower..they looked really unnatural in PN. With this type of shot and how incredibly bright those lights are, I let them blow intentionally, but they need to blow gracefully, which they did in ACR, but not so much in PN. Otherwise, for shots like these, Photo Ninja is doing a really nice job.

Normally, I will be using Lightroom or C1 Pro, though Photo Ninja does a wonderful job in situations where I need lots of detail or where LR has the watercolor fun. PN seems to eliminate that entirely, so it'll be a nice go-to in those circumstances, but the workflow is rather annoying, so with my X-E2 I'll just use Lightroom for most work as usual...for the T1, it's a pain loading them individually in ACR, and so Photo Ninja actually has slightly better workflow right now too.

Nice. Do you mind sharing how you got that look in LR? Love the colors and feel to the image.


Bump up clarity, exposure, and then vignette it.

I am a new XE-1 user, and wonder where I find the peaking function. The firmware is apparantly updated, I was told, not sure where I find this either. Can you help me with this?
thanks, cyra

If you're on the latest firmware, you can enable peaking by entering manual focus mode (with the front switch) and then long pressing on the rear control dial. This will switch between normal and peaking mode. A quick press zooms in, a long press changes focus aids.

It's also worth noting that the long press works even if zoomed in (and does not cancel the zoom). A very elegant implementation.

All these firmware updates really make me love my Fuji even more. Don't you think? Not that many companies do that.

Thank you guys. That is quite handy. The update seems to be done since the peaking and magnificition works.
My second question was, if I can find the actual firmware number somewhere in the menu ?

Here are some pictures from my newly acquired X-T1 and 55-200. All are OOC jpegs with some cropping and PP in LR.
