Fujifilm X100T Extensive Testing Teaser

Real world testing that is…  I picked up my Fujifilm X100T a short while ago and have been putting it through its paces so I can give you a solid opinion as to whether the camera is worth your hard-earned cash, yen, rubble, shiny rocks, etc…  If you read my X100S review you’ll know that I normally like to use whatever camera I’m reviewing for a long period of time to work out any kinks it may have and report back to you.

I was not given this camera, I sincerely don’t care if you buy this camera.  I believe the camera you shoot with is a very personal decision and there is no perfect camera for everyone.  My intention with this and any review on this site is to give you the information I would want in order to make an informed decision.

This is just a teaser, I was processing some sample images from the X100T and thought I’d give you a glimpse as to what the sensor of this tiny camera is capable of.  My full review is coming very soon so if you have not done so already, bookmark this site.

One of the most important characteristics of a camera for me (actually, for a lot of people) is the ability to capture difficult scenes and process them the way our initial vision “previsualized” it.  The images below were taken in my kitchen, I wanted to test the flexibility the RAW files had in semi ideal conditions.

DSCF0058-2

As you can see, the original image was under-exposed in order to capture the filament of the bulbs “in camera”.  Generally I would over-expose slightly because there is more data in the highlights but I wanted to see how this camera handled the shadows and what type of detail I could pull from them without junking up the image.

DSCF0058

I was not only able to pull the map out of the shadows but the image retained beautiful grain or noise in it with minimal noise reduction.  I was very impressed with the RAW files from the X100T, there seems to be a lot of leeway in difficult situations.
