Fuji X series DR question
« on: January 07, 2014, 05:18:05 PM »

I am comparing the X pro 1, X e2 and X e1, do they all have comparable dynamic range? the bodies all seem very similar but hoping that one of them has great DR ( at least better than Canon dslr's ).

They should all be very very close.  X-pro  and X-E1 should be identical as they have the exact same sensor, the X-E2 has an upgraded sensor with the Phase detect AF on the center part of the sensor.  But the DR should still be the same as the other two.

All make great images, each has a feature or two the other doesn't.

My X-E2 has better DR than my 5DII, and shadows can be lifted as high as needed with no noise or banding.  The X-E2 also resolves more detail so prints at 16x24 look as good or slightly better than the 5DII.

I only shoot RAW so I don't know how well the DR settings in JPEG work.

I would also say they have better DR than Canon DSLR but not quite as good as D4 or D800. High ISOs are perfectly usable to 6400 ISO.

These cameras all sport the same sensor and should exhibit identical dynamic range.  The sensor, as I noted in my reviews of both the X-Pro and X-E bodies is really excellent. I didn't attempt to test DR, since this is almost impossible to do meaningfully in the real world, and depends on getting as close to perfect an "exposure to the right" exposure as possible, but I could see nothing lacking.

Perhaps the most useful answer is this: if you otherwise like the Fuji "X" cameras - and there is much to like - there is nothing about their DR capabilities which will disappoint you.
