X-E2 vs X-E1 OOC jpeg
Feb 16, 2014

Since I just bought a X-E2, I decided to do some BW OOC jpeg comparissons before selling my X-E1 (I'm not sure yet if i'll be selling it).

Values were the same for both camera's:

XF 35mm @ f3.6
ISO 3200
Film simulation: B
WB: Thungsten
DR -2
HTone 0
STone 0
Sharp 0

Here are some of the differences that I notice:

  • The X-E2 jpeg shows a bit more contrast. looks a little punchier.
  • The X-E1 shadows show more detail (see the black ear).
  • X-E2 jpeg seems to have a bit less noise (or the NR on the X-E2 is a little bit stronger at NR-2?) The grey area above the right eye looks more pleasing on the X-E2 jpeg to me.
  • X-E1 jpeg is larger (+/- 5200KB)  than X-E2 jpeg (+/- 5000KB).

Setting STone to -1 on the X-E2 brings a bit more detail to the black ear, but overall the grays in the X-E2 jpeg start to look a lot lighter than those in the X-E1 jpeg.

On first sight, the pictures look the same, but the litter box on the bottom left is darker on the X-E2 jpeg than on the X-E1 jpeg. On the X-E2 jpeg, the litter box looks darker than it really is.

I understand why some might like the OOC X-E1 jpegs more than the OOC X-E2 jpegs.
I won't say that I like one more than the other. Both camera's give pleasing results. To me they just look different. And if a jpeg doesn't look good to you, you can still process the raw file.
