Fuji XE-1 settings question and plug for book


New Member
Rico...I have found the new XE-1 and XPro book to be very helpful....thanks
I mostly shoot jpegs and often with the 3 film simulation setting
Using your tips: I use auto ISO (set at 800 limit) with auto DR. I also like to use 1/3 or 2/3 underexposure on dial. I was told that I can not use this combination. Any help/advice would be appreciated. Thanks in advance

As far as exposure compensation goes, you can use whatever makes your photo look the way you want it to look. Auto DR will adjust as is appropriate but you will only get 400% of course at your limit of ISO 800. I don't know who told you that you "can't" use certain settings, but you should always take such pronouncements with a grain of salt. Ultimately, if you get an image you like, then the setting worked. Q.E.D.

I do agree about Rico's book. I have it on my iPad and it was very helpful as I was learning the Fuji system.

Thank you for your kind feedback.
To answer your question: You can use exposure compensation with active Auto-ISO in PAS modes, not M mode.
Auto-DR works in PAS modes, not M mode. In more modern cameras (like X-A1, X-M1, X-E2, XQ1), it also works in M mode.
