Low Light in the Kitchen
A technical post, checking out the low light capabilities of the Fuji X-E1 camera I’ve been working with for a few months now. This image shows a bowl of apples on my kitchen counter, illuminated by a streetlight from across the street, through my yard, shining a wedge of light into my kitchen window. Shot at ISO 6400, and handheld at 1/8 second, it’s certainly passable. I’ve been pretty impressed with the quality of the high-ISO shots I’ve been getting from the X-E1. A recent shot in near darkness was taken at ISO 25600 (see it here) and easily works, especially in a pinch. I’d rather get the shot and worry about ‘noise’ after the fact. Moments are too fleeting to care otherwise.
