Just as many photogs have acclaimed, I find the out-of-camera JPGs from the Fuji X-E1 are amazing. But... even with the Fuji X system, there are still those times when the RAW comes in handy. Especially when I really need to push, ahem, salvage, things.
If it doesn't make sense to "Expose to the Right" with the Fuji X-Trans sensor, what about exposing to the left and "Push" processing?
I almost hate to write this post, as Exposure To The Right (ETTR) is a near religious topic on the inter webs and I don't want to wade into the fan-boy vs. haters mudfest. But I do want to know how ETTR plays out with the unique Fuji X-Trans sensor in the FujiFilm XE-1, and all other Fuji X Series cameras that share this sensor such as the X-Pro 1 and the X-100s.
Do the Fuji X Series cameras have an issue with underexposure and overinflated ISO? It's a common statement, and if true, it would be important to know how to compensate. In the next few posts I'm going to walk through a series of tests that show the ISO ratings and spot metering on the FujiFilm XE-1 are actually quite well calibrated.
