10 More Fujifilm X-E1 & Meike 35mm f/1.7 Photographs

Yesterday I published an article about the Fujifilm X-E1 & Meike 35mm that I distressed to make it appear old and worn, like a well-used 1960’s rangefinder. I included 10 photographs in that article captured with that camera and lens. I’ve been using the X-E1 a lot over the last two weeks because it’s been a lot of fun to shoot with, so I have a bunch of pictures that I wanted to share, but I didn’t want to make that article any longer than it already was.

Below you will find 10 more images that I captured with the X-E1 and Meike lens combination. Of the 20 photographs (ten in each post), 12 of them are straight-out-of-camera JPEGs, while eight of them are camera-made JPEGs that received some editing using the RNI Films app.

    The camera looks ace! Quick question if you have a moment. Have you worked out the best noise reduction and sharpening settings for the in camera JPEGs yet? For the X-E1 that is. I know you have settled on +1Sharp, -3 N. Reduction for X-Pro etc… Thanks!

      Thank you! On the X-E1 I have noise reduction set to -2 and sharpening set to 0. That seems to work well.

        Thanks for such a quick reply. I think that’s what I have mine set at also. Great content. I’m enjoying it. Drew

        I am a X-E1 user too. Can you share some jpeg color recipe on quick setting menu. Thank you so much!!!

      • Ritchie Roesch · February 22, 2019

        I don’t have any specific X-E1 recipes, but the XF10 ones will work, except for Classic Chrome. For that recipe I would choose Astia and set saturation to -1, and you’ll get similar results.
