Re: Somebody please explain! Why X-E1 JPEGS are darker?

from X-Pro1 review (Page 17)

By our tests, the X-Pro 1's measured sensitivities are about 1/3 to 1/2 stop lower than marked, which is unusual for a modern camera. This means that for any given light level, shutter speed and aperture the X-Pro1 has to use a higher ISO to get an image of the same brightness as an accurately-rated camera.

FROM 550D review (page 14)

Measured ISO from the EOS 550D is within +/- 1/6 EV of indicated ISO, and the 550D gives almost exactly the same luminance readings from middle grey across its entire ISO range, which represents excellent consistency.
