Olympus technical specialist - We apply NR in EM1.2 RAW file

Have a read -


"The high-end of ISO sensitivity is 6400, Gensel pointed out, but that isn't the whole story. The M1 Mark II applies color noise reduction filtration on the sensor data before it is written to a Raw or JPEG file.

He showed a couple of examples, most notably, the blue-channel noise removal of an underwater shot.

We asked if this had any effect on the dynamic range of the image but he didn't know. And, no, it isn't something you can elect to skip."

I guess Oly fudged their ISO performance just like Fuji applies NR in their RAW file.
