Fujifilm X-Pro1 Digital Camera Review$1,700.00
The X-Pro1's noise reduction software fails to distinguish the camera from close competitors. Though we suppose this isn't such a bad thing, after all the top of the line is becoming really good at eliminating noise. With noise reduction at its lowest setting, total image noise averages only 0.39% at ISO 100. In fact, you won't see noise levels cross 1.00% until ISO 3200. Very impressive. Artifacting rises smoothly but exponentially from there, eventually culminating in 2.60% noise at ISO 25600.
Each level of noise reduction behaves the same way, starting off slow, then becoming increasingly aggressive after ISO 3200. Cranking up this software all the way means pretty much any properly exposed shot can be used, even those captured at the lofty maximum ISO. More on how we test noise.
ISO sensitivity is the only main shooting variable that isn't given a manual control dial. The sensor's range extends from 100 all the way up to 25600. From 200 to 6400, the user may choose third-stop intervals, such as 250 or 320. Four flavors of Auto ISO are available, which limit the maximum to either 400, 800, 1600, or 3200; but values about 3200 must–annoyingly–be set manually.
