Fujifilm X-E1 review


It is not unusual for a camera to offer bracketing for exposure, but the X-E1 has four bracketing modes to choose from - for ISO, autoexposure (AE), film simulation and dynamic range. Bracketing is quickly accessed via the drive button on the camera's rear, and each mode works over three frames. With the AE and dynamic range options the camera needs to be supported on a tripod to ensure that the successive frames are lined up properly, while the film simulation and ISO are fine without a tripod because the frames are recorded in quicker succession. The AE mode is the only option of the four that offers raw capture. By default, the film simulation modes are Provia, Astia and Velvia, but a further seven colour modes are also available, any of which can be applied to each of the three frames.
