Fuji X-E2 Photography | Jim Radcliffe

I bought the Fuji X-Pro 1 during the first week it became available. I was excited to own and use something different from a DSLR or Micro Four Thirds camera. I loved using it. I passed on the X-E1 as it did not offer me more than what the X-Pro 1 was already providing other than a better EVF. I did not think that the Fuji X-E2 would be enough of an improvement over the X-Pro 1 to warrant its purchase either. I was wrong. Good things come in small packages. That saying has never been more true than when I use it in reference to the Fuji X-E2. What an amazing little camera… at a good price point. I am a still photographer so I cannot speak to the video capabilities of the X-E2 nor do I care about them. That said, let’s get on with my thoughts about the Fuji X-E2. First and foremost.. it’s a fun camera and you can carry it all day without shoulder or back pain.. this is important to both young and older photographers. One of the reasons I ditched my Canon 5D MK II was the bulk and weight. No such worries with the X-E2.

The good:

The X-E2 is a small nonthreatening camera, easily carried in a small bag. Perfect for those who wish to travel light and still be able to get very high quality photographs. The IQ is truly stunning. The photos produced by the X-E2 have amazing detail, great color rendition and dynamic range. Noise is kept to a very comfortable minimum once you pass ISO 800 and little or none below ISO 800. The noise control appears to be better to my eye than what the X-Pro 1 offers (and it is good) and also appears more manageable with noise reduction software at higher ISO settings. The EVF on the X-E2 is one of the best I have ever had the pleasure of using. It is much better than the EVF on my X-Pro 1. The X-E2 has a built-in diopter. The X-Pro 1 does not. You must use a screw-in diopter on the X-Pro 1 and they don’t always stay screwed in…….
