Re: Safest higher ISO for XZ-1?

Hi Joe6pack.

you are correct the XZ-1 exhibits this trait because of excessive shadow noise.

Even in ok light throw in some deep shadow areas and you will see the noise.

Two examples from a museum visit below.

The Colt revolver was in a very dark cabinet and I could not maintain shutter speed so I had to resort to ISO 800 the result is a lot of noise and mushy image due to the cameras noise reduction

The Leica camera was under very bright spot lamps, So I did a test ISO 2000
