Low ISO sensitivity JPEGs

The X-T1 delivers very clean JPEGs through ISO 800; you can start to see some softness and edge artifacts at ISO 1600, but it's still quite good.

High ISO sensitivity JPEGs

Though you can see some softness at ISO 3200, the camera still shows good detail resolution at that setting. Shadow areas degrade noticeably at ISO 6400.

The X-Trans CMOS II sensor allows the the X-T1 to render naturally sharp textures.

You can see some noise suppression on ISO 800 shots, but they retain nice tonality.

ISO 1600 JPEG

This is pretty good for an ISO 1600 JPEG, and the kit lens' image stabilization performs very well; this was shot handheld at 1/8 sec.

ISO 3200 raw vs. JPEG

There's a solid amount of recoverable shadow detail and sharpness in the midrange ISO sensitivity shots. (JPEG on the left, raw on the right.)

I really like the X-T1's mid-to-high ISO sensitivity performance for night shooting.

ISO 12800 JPEG

ISO 12800 shots look mushy overall, but can the camera can still resolve a lot of detail.

Overall, I'm not a fan of the two top expanded sensitivity ranges, though they're sometimes good for shots like this. I would have liked to be able to print this, but because the camera doesn't support raw in the expanded range I couldn't match the on-screen exposure for the printed version without introducing a lot of artifacts, so the print just looks like an ugly mess 'o crushed blacks.

Fujifilm's default setting renders color relatively faithfully.
