    Oh Fuji, how I wish other companies were like you, offering the people what they want and even some things they didn’t know they wanted…

    I’m still rocking the X-E1. Probably tie for an upgrade but I’m too indecisive between these two bodies.

    The Fuji’s have a habit of ignoring your minimum shutter speed setting and lowering it below your preset limit to achieve a good exposure, the camera only does this once your max ISO is reached. This solves this issue in one way effectively giving you ISO control[ish] of 6 stops on your right thumb and importantly with no pin lock to push to change the ISO value.
    There is no readout in the screen to tell you where your ec value is though.

    ◾Exposure Compensation in the Manual exposure mode

    Glad to read that… it’s a big miss for me…

      What would this do, adjust ISO?

      Hi Eric,

      The way I shoot on my Nikons and want to on my X-T1 is to set ISO to Auto and then manually set my shutter and aperture… basically I’m happy with the quality of the image on my cameras at any ISO it chooses (the range I set in the menu)

      By shooting like this the X-T1 currently try’s to ‘average’ the scene… yes I can use spot or centre weighted… but by having the exposure compensation I can tweak the cameras guestemate (mathematical and algorithmic whiz bang computing) with how I want the image to look…

      On my Nikons I find it particularly useful, for instance.. shooting a bride entering a church when backlit, I want her to be silhouetted.. but some detail in her face.. dial in a little over exposure.. excellent..

      At present if I do this on my X-T1 the camera’s Auto ISO just compensates for my changes to keep the ‘average’ exposure… the mathematicians… think perceive as correct…

      Yep, that’s exactly what I was wondering. I also set my Nikons to auto ISO, with a cap at 1600. So, I just manually set the ISO to 100, and let the camera make the adjustment it thinks it needs to make. I thought the Fuji was doing kind of the same thing, but wasn’t sure. Good info!
