John what made you decide to play with highlights and shadows? I think it's an excellent idea but I'm not sure if I even need to do that on the 1-in sensor?

I am still having trouble blowing out my highlights. I am going to turn that thing off where it changes back to zero on the EV. I can't manage to stay at -1 or - 2/3.

but if I could leave it at zero and just change the highlights that might work.

Let me know what your results are saying?


Hi Jacqueline,

This is a great question!

The idea to try using the "Highlight & Shadow" feature,

is from my experiences in using my Fuji camera settings.

In the Fuji cameras, the "Highlight & Shadow" settings,

is placed along with the Sharpening & Noise Reduction,

so they are not placed separately, as they are together,

which to mean they are integrated & working together.

Also, as I was searching for the best Fuji cam settings,

the recommended settings included the use of "H&S".

And from my experiences with my Fuji cameras using,

the Highlight & Shadow, the pictures results are good,

giving the pictures a more realistic & 3-D like effects.

Also, the Fuji X100F camera I have uses a "DX" sensor,

which is actually some larger than the 1" type sensor.


Hi John , I too use the ht & st and dr% with Fuji cameras, especially the very interesting EXR sensors like my xs1.

my xpro1 and xt10 both benefited from these settings shooting jpeg.

I also used the ht -2 on my fz1000 as it was prone to clipping highlights.

Shots like this really needed it to stop the clouds blowing out.


Hi Paul,

Thanks for commenting!

Great example of how the "Highlight" can help in capturing pictures.

I still need to experiment with the i.Dynamic settings and see the results.

Thanks for sharing & happy snappings.
