Fujifilm X-E2 review – White balance and colour

Image: A selection of monochrome film-simulation modes can be quickly accessed via the X-E2’s main menu

There’s a choice of ten white-balance settings. While many users will leave the white balance set to auto, you can expect the X-E2 to deliver consistent tones that are natural to the scene and well saturated. I experienced no issues with colour indoors or out, with the final result not appearing too warm or too cool.

For those who would like to enhance image colours, there are nine film-simulation modes to experiment with, including Provia, Velvia and Astia. You may also want to try out the mono settings, including the monochrome+R filter that effectively enhances contrast and darkens skies considerably.
