Well, you do know that there are many who enjoy shooting the EXR camera 99% of the time with the simple setting I document on my blog.

P mode
M size
DR400
Auto ISO 1600 or 3200 depending on your tolerance for noise

It really is that easy to get great results.

And for those who shoot the X10, XF1 or X-S1, add:

Low sharpen
Low contrast
Default saturation

... and process the JPEGs in Lightroom 4.

Easy peasy ...

I also use similar easy/leisure settings when shooting my F200exr (and F300exr), almost 99.9% of the time.

P Mode

M Size

Auto DR

Auto ISO400 for good light

Auto ISO1600 for poor light (for F300exr, I may use ISO800 in this case).

One caveat, for F200, when it selects DR400 and ISO400, the artifacts are not pleasant to view at full size, if time permits and I want to make a larger print, I will over-ride the camera, by fixing either ISO or DR.

Some of my F200exr pictures captured with above settings:

Mainly PPed with DXO only using Velvia Simulation only











BTW, Kim do you find any advantages using M-Size on XF-1?
