X-T1 - Dragging the Shutter

I've just posted a how-to write-up on using the 'dragging the shutter' technique with the X-T1, to balance twilight cityscape ambient lighting with a flash fill subject.

This is a really useful technique, and the metering and EVF on the X-T1 makes it relatively easy to accomplish 'in camera'.

You have fully independent control of subject and background exposure - and the camera does all the hard work as the light levels fall away at the end of the day.

The full write-up is posted here: http://f-sunny.com/fuji-x-t1-dragging-the-shutter/
