Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding how ISO works on the Fuji X-T1, part of Fuji X-T1: Tips and Techniques.
- You should already be familiar with ISO…one of your three exposure parameters.…Turn it up and you can use faster shutter speeds…and smaller apertures, but with the potential penalty…of noise in your image.…The Fuji XT-1 offers excellent high ISO capability…yielding images that are shockingly free of noise.…In fact as you'll see later the XT-1 is actually…an ISO less camera, which I'll explain then.…On the XT-1 you can set ISO manually by turning the…ISO dial.…The camera offers a default ISO range of…200 - 6400.…
Most of the time though, I keep my camera…set to auto ISO because the auto ISO feature works well…and it's one less thing that I have to think about…while I'm shooting.…However, depending on your preferences…you might want to do a little customization of the…auto ISO feature.…While the XT-1 does a great job of…keeping noise down at higher ISOs there is still…an increase in noise once you crank ISO really high.…Whether that increase in noise is egregious is a matter…of personal taste, so it's worth doing some tests…
