High ISO And The X1D

Its an amazing camera in low light. I have tested up to 3200 and it is amazing, I would say that shooting night and interiors under natural lighting will be a strong point of this camera. Its auto white balance seems to be very accurate as well. Great colours and sharpness under mixed lighting.

More X1D

Summer is on its way and the X1D handles the high contrast sunlight like a champion. Medium format sensors have enough headroom to hold the whites of the surf and give you shadow details as well.

It may be a little slow to start but once it gets up and running it works as quick as most of the current smaller sensor mirrorless cameras. The latest firmware update is starting to show the potential of the system and the lenses are still amazing.

I can’t help it- they are great lenses!

First Shots From The X1D

Ok so its here but its a demo version which is not quite complete when it comes to features- firmware updates are on their way but suffice to say the beast feels great and shoots pretty well. I picked it up at the end of the day so the files are shot at 3200 ISO and processed in Phocus 3.1. Phocus definitely handles files better than Adobe, the output has less noise and better tonal gradation with brilliant colour.

Adobe seems to process things a bit warm and noisy, to be fair, its personal preference and most people will not pick the difference.
