Tips and tricks for better (auto) focus with X-E1
Dec 27, 2012

Ther's been a lot of discussion about the "challenging" autofocus of the X-E1. I can understand people's frustrations. Imagine my embarrassment on Christmas night when friends and family were easily snapping away with their phones and their point & shoots in my living room while I was unable to get decent focus with my X-E1. Finding vertical lines to focus on helped in some instances, but not others, and I was careful not to cover the focus assist lamp with the index finger of my right hand. Tried manual focus too, but in low light with EVF, by the time I got decent focus I had missed the shot. I would love to hear what other people have learned that might help us all?
