Fuji S5

Fujifilm S5 Pro

I got this one here ($1,899 and free shipping). I'd have gotten it here or here, too. It helps me publish this site when you get yours from those links, too.

see also Fuji S5 High ISO Performance and Fuji S5 High ISO Definition.

Some cameras change color rendition at higher ISOs. A common trick is to crush the blacks to hide noise.

My D200 can go from OK at ISO 100 to awful color rendition at ISO 3,200, while the Fuji S5's color is as good at ISO 3,200 as it is at ISO 100.

For each example, roll your mouse over the image made at each camera's lowest ISO to see it at ISO 3,200.

Fuji S5. Rollover to see ISO 3,200. Except for the slight (1/3 stop) exposure variation in this one particular shot, the colors are unchanged. This is good.

Nikon D200. Rollover to see ISO 3,200. It's much greener at ISO 3,200. This is bad. The exposure is about a 1/4 stop less, try to ignore that.

Canon 5D. Rollover to see ISO 3,200. The exposure varies more than any color change. This is good.

Nikon D40. Rollover to see ISO 3,200. Color changes a little, but it's not as big a deal as the hellacious grain at ISO 3,200.

If you find this as helpful as a book you might have had to buy or a workshop you may have had to take, feel free to help me continue helping everyone.

It also helps me keep adding to this site when you get your goodies through these links to Ritz, Amazon and Adorama. I use them and recommend them personally .

Thanks!

Ken
