Hmmm, I don't recall seeing any of those changes . . . but bracketing mode? I can't bracket in RAW? Maybe I partially knocked the setting when changing from ISO 200 to ISO L. Something to watch.

ISO L and ISO H are jpg only you cannot shoot raw at ISO 100, the lowest ISO for raw is 200. I am guessing you wanted the lower ISO to increase exposure time, ND filters will be your friend.

Thank you! That sounds likely. I remember that was a bit difficult to do starbursts with X-E1 (same lens), but it didn't seem nearly as hard as this and I never noticed any ugly "flare blobs" either. Maybe it's just that I haven't been in exactly the same light situations yet, or else the lens coating on X-A1 is different and causes some internal reflections. Or perhaps a little of both.

Anyway, overall I'm very happy with the Fuji gear and the colors are just lovely. Now when we have the profiles in Lightroom it's even better.


I'm not a Fuji X shooter (yet), but I can tell you that I usually don't see point light sources turn into stars until I stop down a little more than f5.6. Next time your shooting in that situation, try stopping down to f11 or so and see what happens.

That was it exactly! I'm a Canon convert and didn't realize ISO L was JPEG only. I also use a Vari-ND for these kinds of shots.

Finally got to do some landscape with the X-T1. I had one issue. Somehow the camera setting went to jpeg and would not let me set it to RAW. I couldn't for the life of me figure it out. I shut the camera off, changed lenses and it became accessible to switch back to raw. What prevents the camera from going to RAW mode?

Sunrise at Deerfield Beech, Florida.



Setting to ISO 100 L will only shoot in jpg. I've done that before and then gone duh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I really hate it...I tend to set it to L = ISO 100 when in bright light to keep the shutter down, but it prevents me from shooting RAW.

Thanks, but I have already tried everything between f/5.6 and f/13 and it doesn't help. Sorry, I forgot to mention this in my first post.

Oh well, I'm happy with the Fuji for just about everything else, so I'll just use my Ricoh GR for troublesome light situations.

Wow, great shots on this page.
Jordan, the 10-24 shots look great.
Bob - Great cityscapes as usuall, love the morning lights ones and the second pier shot.
galenapass - Great shots with the 55-200, I think you're getting a stare-down in the last shot
Ian - Great portrait, conveys a lot of mood.

Here's a few from a local park/orchard with 32mm Zeiss on X-A1

Nice John! I wish the flowers were out back home but I'll have to 'settle' for these scenes while visiting family. Image #3 is another from the same scene posted earlier today.

Not the biggest wildflower year by a long shot here in droughtland California, but these guys seemed have made it ok.

X-E1 and 14mm

Our trees are blossoming for that short period they do each year. Taken with the X-T1 and 55-200OIS lens at the "golden hour" before sunset.

My first photo with a ring flash. I'm excited to start using it.

Things are a bit to get real crazy up in here.

Going through some from my first job with the X-T1.

Three images from this morning. Different post processing of similar scenes.

I like the first the best (though a combo between the first and last would be best of all...keep the golden color from the first, but go for the more purplish hues from the last on the shadow parts. I also think it would have a little more impact if it were just a smidge brighter. Not a lot, but a minor tweak (I know the mood you're after relies on the darks, but it's just a little too dark for me.)

Great shot, though.
