You can smoothly change to the following settings using the DRIVE button.
Choose your own image style with the Film Simulation Mode and recreate FUJIFILM's unique film heritage. By selecting from one of 10 variations you can shoot your images how you want them. Velvia gives vivid colors, ASTIA shows faithful smooth tone reproduction, PROVIA offers a natural all-rounder, while the softer Pro Neg.Std and sharper Pro Neg.Hi are perfect for portraiture. Sepia film simulation is also possible while creative black & white photography can be enjoyed using three different filter effects.
Shoot Full HD movies (1920 x 1080) at 60 fps / 30 fps. In addition to using Monochrome or other Film Simulation modes to enhance your artistic expression, you can take full advantage of the combination of FUJIFILM X-E2's large sensor and bright XF / XC lenses to capture movies with a large and beautiful defocused “bokeh” background. Connect stereo microphones (commercially sold) to the microphone connector to record audio with enhanced clarity and presence.
True-to-life natural tonality and color reproduction.
Shoot HD Movies in the vibrant colors of Velvia.
Capture the action in richly expressive monochrome tones.
The body is equipped with a microphone connector. Connect the stereo microphone (commercially sold) to record audio with enhanced clarity and presence.
Adjust the microphone volume level (4 settings) while watching the level meter for optimum audio recording to prevent either loss or distortion.
Kelvin temperature setting is also available for detailed correction to match the color temperature of the shooting location. Fine tune white balance to capture natural skin color or express your creative intent.
Empowering you with a choice of 4 different auto bracketing functions (AE, ISO Sensitivity, Dynamic Range and Film Simulation), the FUJIFILM X-E2 lets you experience the wide world of photographic expression.
Capture 3 exposures of the same scene with high-speed continuous shooting, each at a different dynamic range setting (100%, 200% & 400%).
Just release the shutter once and produce 3 images of the scene based on a single exposure, each image with a different Film Simulation effect that you have freely selected and pre-set.
One press of the shutter captures 3 shots of the same scene at different exposures. AE bracketing can be set in 1/3, 2/3 or 1 EV steps.
Based on a single exposure, the scene is automatically reproduced as 3 images, each with a different ISO sensitivity and without changing the shutter speed and aperture, letting you capture the moment with varying degrees of brightness. Setting is possible in 1/3, 2/3 or 1 EV steps.
Just sweep the camera across the scene, and the FUJIFILM X-E2 captures multiple images and seamlessly stitches them together to form a single panorama photo. Even when enlarged to an A3-size print, there is virtually no loss of resolution. Holding the camera horizontally or vertically, Motion Panorama lets you shoot the scene with an “M” or “L” angle of view.
Just select Multiple Exposure mode and take the first shot. Then frame and shoot the second exposure while viewing the first image in the LCD monitor. This lets you not only precisely position and focus the second shot, but also "see" how the finished Multiple Exposure image will look and make creative adjustments like zooming in to enlarge the subject.
Create, save and instantly recall up to 7 sets of user-defined settings covering all parameters from ISO sensitivity to white balance.
Even in dark scenes, the displayed image is easy to see. Adoption of special reinforced glass not only protects the screen from scratches, but also reduces reflections for improved viewing comfort.
The large display of numerical data and icons lets you know the state of camera settings at a glance. Check the key shooting data without stress or hassle, leaving you free to concentrate on framing the shot in the viewfinder.
When composing a shot in the spacious LCD, the built-in electronic level display makes it easy to align the image with the true horizon.
The “FRAMING GUIDELINE” option in Tab 4 of the shooting menu offers a choice of GRID 9, GRID 24, and HD FRAMING. The “grid” options are a very effective aid to composition when, for example, framing photographs with the subjects arranged along a diagonal.
In the Shooting and Playback menu, functions are organized into tabbed single-page screens for fast selection and setting. Just select a tab and find the item in the displayed list without scrolling.
Skip directly to frequently used shooting menus with the Q (Quick Menu) button. ISO sensitivity setting, White Balance, Film Simulation and other frequently used shooting settings are displayed in a list. Just use the 4-way controller to select the item and the command dial to change settings for speedy operation while shooting.
The built-in RAW data converter lets you view results in the field without first transferring the data to a PC. This easy-to-use feature not only takes into account exposure compensation, white balance and other in-camera image quality settings, but also lets you apply Film Simulation modes in the converter mode.
For the management, viewing and converting of RAW image data on your PC, you will find SILKYPIX® viewer and RAW conversion software included. The special FUJIFILM X-E2 version of this software ensures versatility and ease of use, plus movie playback functionality.
Compensate for the color of different light sources with a choice of 9 white balance presets in addition to Auto White Balance. You can also make custom white balance settings using a gray card or other surface, or by selecting the optimum color temperature (Kelvin value).
Fine tune white balance by adjusting R (red) ⇔ Cy (cyan) and B (blue) ⇔ Ye (yellow) in ±9 steps. You can make adjustments and confirm their effect on the actual image during shooting. It is ideal for accurate correction of white balance or to explore the creative effects that can be achieved with filters.
Expand the normal sensitivity range from ISO200 - 6400 to ISO100, 12800 or even ISO25600. In dynamic lighting conditions, you can now set a sensitivity ceiling within the range of ISO400 - 6400 and keep the camera on ISO Auto.
Fine-tune image quality with “COLOR” for color saturation adjustment, “HIGHLIGHT TONE” and “SHADOW TONE” for tweaking contrast in highlights and shadows, and “SHARPNESS” to stress or soften image outlines. With this built-in detailed image quality control, you can produce an image that precisely matches your creative objectives.
Select either sRGB for a standard range of color reproduction on general displays or Adobe RGB® for its broader colour rendition depending on how you intend to output and use the image.
Choose from 5 different levels of noise reduction depending on whether your priority is the crispness of resolution or keeping noise reduction to a minimum, and explore the capability to tune sensitivity-related textural quality when shooting high-sensitivity scenes.
After turning OFF the power, the FUJIFILM X-E2 enters a “sleep” mode (for a maximum of 24 minutes). If the power is turned ON during this time, the FUJIFILM X-E2 “wakes up” instantly, reducing the normal startup time from 0.92 sec. to approx. 0.5 sec. ready for you to frame and capture the moment.
Lock both exposure and focus for the subject by touching the special AE/AF Lock button conveniently placed in the upper area of the rear control panel.
Swiftly select the best metering for your shot: “MULTI” for accurate response to a variety of lighting conditions, “SPOT” for precise reading of approximately 2% of the viewfinder area in the center of the screen, and “AVERAGE” for an average exposure setting for the entire scene.
