An easy way to use the Fuji X-E1 for HDR

Fuji X-E1 for HDRI get asked a lot of questions about the Fuji X-E1 for HDR. I think everyone looks past the most obvious and easiest way to take your bracketed shots with this camera… the EV Compensation dial. It’s right there near your thumb! Forget about auto-bracketing with this camera, is just won’t take enough shots at the right EV spacing. Instead, manually use the Fuji X-E1 EV comp dial and take your -2, 0, and +2 that way. It is much easier and I have found that I can accurately time when I fire each shot, for example, I can wait until something is in the best spot for each shot… I can take several if I want and pick the best one to blend in later…

So can you use the Fuji X-E1 for HDR?… yep! I know it seems like a little bit of extra work, but so is my D800… I think every camera will have it’s plusses and minuses. I have done a lot of HDR photography and find that I can use the Fuji X-E1 for HDR quite happily.

Remember, if you are going to use the Fuji X-E1 for HDR you will need some software. I use photomatix Pro for all my HDR processing, I have tried several but find Photomatix to be the best. You can get a fully functional trial version of Photomatix by CLICKING HERE and use code: ON3LEGS to get 15% off your order when you’re ready to buy it.
