I was sitting at home today, playing with the newly received Fuji gear, when my brother stormed into the house and told me to go outside and see the rainbow. I grabbed the Fuji X-E1, with the Zeiss 12mm mounted on it and ran towards my car. I drove about a mile north to an open area and took the below shot:
It was a full double rainbow, but the Zeiss 12mm f/2.8 just could not fit the whole thing in the frame. I set the X-E1 to Aperture Priority mode, ISO 200, f/5.6, then snapped away without any other adjustments. The exposure was spot on, so I did not have to go through exposure adjustments when processing the RAW file. Post-processing was quick – I only adjusted Contrast and Clarity under the Basic Panel, then boosted Saturation level to +10. White Balance was not touched, so the camera pretty much just nailed it. Cloned out a couple of distractions in the frame, then exported the image at 1024 pixels for the web and applied some sharpening.
So far I am in love with the X-E1, although I have only been shooting with it for a couple of days.
More to come!
