Re: I wouldn't bother

Is this excessive noise reduction in general, or does it manifest itself only/predominantly with skin?

Does reducing NR to lowest setting help?

From what I've read, the X20 compact has a similar problem with JPEG's, compared to the X10 which is much better. I hate excessive NR, and I shoot JPEG's most of the time.

Quite right; on a snapshot of a child who by nature has smooth skin anyway, at web size, low resolution and ISO 1600 it's not that much of a problem. Lol.

OP - here is a better sample. It's pretty damn ugly way and can ruin portraits in low light situations so just be aware.

Why they haven't addressed it is beyond me, the Fuji's are SO good for SOOC Jpegs, they have killed that in the X-E2.

Human skin vs mannequin skin.
