High ISO studio comparison

Below you will find a studio comparison of the Fujifilm FinePix S6000fd's output at ISO 1600 and ISO 3200.

Studio scene comparison ( @ ISO 1600 & ISO 3200)

  • Fujifilm FinePix S6000: Aperture Priority mode, ISO 1600, Default Image Parameters,
    Manual white balance, +0.3 EV compensation
  • Fujifilm FinePix S6000: Aperture Priority mode, ISO 3200, Default Image Parameters,
    Manual white balance, +0.3 EV compensation
     
  • Lighting: Daylight simulation, >98% CRI

Note: Due to our standard lighting setup being too bright for the S6000fd's ISO 3200 setting / top shutter speed, the ISO 3200 shot was taken with an ND4 filter over the light source (2 stops less light).

Once you get over ISO 800 things start to go downhill fairly rapidly, though ISO 1600 would be just about usable at a pinch. ISO 3200 is very much to be reserved for social snaps in low light without flash, where fine detail isn't as important as capturing the atmosphere and the moment.

What is strange is that the output is visibly different to the FinePix F30; and it's not as good, looking more processed and less detailed. This is particularly true of ISO 1600, and it seems to be related to the in-camera processing (the sensor is apparently the same) - processed raw files look a lot more like the F30's output.
