Re: Bragging about our expensive mirrorless/DSLR vs a point and shoot

The Sony P&S probably has leaf shutter and is able to shoot the backlit scene with flash high speed sync.

None of the X APS-C camera can do HSS yet. So even if you bring an external flash, it won't help much. You need to shoot at 1/500 or faster with correct flash fill.

This is why I still have my X10 for this kind of situation.

As for indoor low light shoot, you need a f/1.4 lens to help the CDAF system.  Also, X-E2 is more capable in low light AF situation.  This is why I never recommend anyone going with X-E1 (I had it and sold it), the camera is too limiting except the best situations.
