My first discussion on the X100S was mostly a general overview on first impressions.
So, just for fun, I decided to get up before sunrise on Saturday and kick around the streets of Corvallis with the new camera to practice a bit in some tough low-light conditions.
Most of the morning was spent at ISO 4000 and 5000. A few of the shots are included here. Nothing portfolio ready but hopefully they’ll give you a good idea of how well this camera handles at the higher ISO settings.
Though these are not straight-out-of-camera (they have been slightly modified in LR4.4), I purposely did not use the Noise Reduction Slider.
And just in case you’re curious, all shots were handheld, manual mode, in-camera noise reduction off, raw (not jpg), and auto white balance (only slightly adjusted on a couple of the shots – but not dramatically).
To be honest – I find this camera to be stunning in low light.
