I guess Im waiting to see what happens in September. Ive been shooting my Olympus OM-D E M1 but still wanted to compare it to the X-T1 as an owner so i can shoot side by side.

 

I picked up a used X-T1 (mother never said I was smart) and a 16mm f/1.4 prime. I went out yesterday morning trying to beet the 110* temp time of day and shot these. These have no post.

 

# ! /  Iso 400 F/6.4 1/400

 

#2 /  Iso 200 f/5.6 1/210

 

#3 /  Iso 400 f/5.6 1/170

 

#4 /  Iso 200 f/5.6 1/340

 

 

EDIT: My mistake these images were taken with the camera in full auto mode. This is something I always do for the first few pictures with a new, to me camera. I like to see what the camera does by itself.  I will post the other pictures at another time.

So, what do you think?

Thanks, Dennis.

Well for the time of day, first pictures, not sure of settings Im happy. I can see where I will make some setting changes going forward. It is definitely different then my D750 and Oly OMD. Its going to be interesting watching my old brain go to work lol. 

 

EDIT: Ignore this post I posted the wrong pictures sorry. I apologize for the waste of time.

They will all take pictures. They all can do that pretty well. It will be down to how it operates, and does it give you opportunities that you don't, or can't get, with the others.

I'm guessing you had it on PROVIA/STD?

 

Its worth experimenting with the film simulations as they are really fun and once you've tried them its worth tweaking the custom settings - particularly the H-Tone and S-Tone.

The pictures from the D750 are had to beat. I find that it is easier for me to get close with the Fuji as it is not complicated to use. lIve found the Oly to be the the one with the complicated menus. I should add that Im more familiar with the Nikon menus though. I will play more with settings on the Fuji because of the simplicity of the menus and the dials which adds to the fun. I have since sold the Oly.
