Fuji XT-2 Trials (Six Photographs)

While I am very happy with the Fuji XT-2 camera, there are always a few things to learn. It has a tendency to under expose. Bracketing three photos might help, three photos are taken (almost as quickly as one) with different exposures. This gives me a lot to work with. It is a technique that some pro street photographers use. Probably a stopgap measure until I learn more about how the Fuji measures exposure. None of the film profiles is similar to what Nikon calls “flat”. A “flat” or “normal” film profile would give more latitude in editing with the widest dynamic range of light. That said, Adobe Standard or the existing Fuji Film simulations do a great job, and Tonality Pro remains an effective tool for B&W. Noise reduction seems either unnecessary or does more damage than good, this is probably a good thing as it removes a step in my process. While menus let you to save a number of settings in banks or to a quick change screen, they don’t seem to be the settings I want easy access to, not a major issue and one typical of other cameras I have used. The seagull was taken with the 90mm lens, the General with the 23 f2, and the rest with the 35mm F2. To be clear, the best camera is the one you have with you and that was why I bought the Fuji; a flexible camera I can carry with me almost all the time.
