Random Lens

Some shots of a rather quiet Salem this past Saturday morning. This Fuji X-E1 is new to me, so I'm trying to put this camera through it's paces. It takes amazing shots, but it does have a tough time metering for Oregon's typical overcast settings. Blue sky, fine. Dark night, fine. Overcast sky... way too bright or way to dark and very inconsistent between shots, I'm finding it hard to dial the exposure compensation in making it tough for quick casual street shots where there isn't time for test shots and full manual mode. But still, the camera captures amazing shots, and we'll get there with the metering!
