On Fujifilm X-E1 Preview preview (410 comments in total)

I rented an X-E1 to test it as a digiscoping camera I mainly photograph birds and frequently use continuous mode, sometimes to the point of filling the buffer. I found that you can’t make any camera adjustments while the camera is in the process of storing images, this can be quite a wait. All my Lumix G-cameras give me instant feedback with the “highlight” function by flashing black on any over-exposed areas on the image that flashes briefly right after it’s taken. I thought the X-E1 had that function, but it turns out you have to go into review mode to see it, and then you’re looking at a very small image—it doesn’t show up in the full-screen reviewable image. Sample shots taken with the camera mounted on a Swarovski STX 95 can be viewed here:

If anyone knows of a way to overcome either the "no adjustments during image storage" or the highlight of over-exposed areas, I'd be very glad to hear them.
