Is there anyway to turn off the Fuji's horrendous in camera High ISO noise reduction?
That is the worst ,over smoothed "plastic" photo I've seen !! It looks like an oil painting, not a photograph.

I used Silkypix for the RAW as it's the raw editor that I downloaded from the Fuji site and perhaps gives me closest to native control. I minimised every slider I could under the noise tab.

Here is a crop of the resulting jpg...

And for comparison the 100D image with noise reduction minimised as well with a new RAW edit...

As I said yesterday, it's the lack of colored chrominance noise from the Fuji that appeals to me and makes it easy to clean up in post.
