Fujifilm X-A2 Review – Dynamic Range

The X-A2 is no slouch when it comes to the Dynamic Range it offers between its native ISO range of 200-6400. Analysis of our Raw images and applied imaging tests revealed the dynamic range is a very useful 12.6EV at ISO 200 and remains high through to ISO 800, dropping to just 11.7EV at this sensitivity.

Beyond ISO 800 shadow tones become noisier, but a dynamic range of 9.54EV at ISO 3200 is creditable and on par with the readout from the Canon EOS 7D Mark II. After this it drops to 8.7EV at ISO 6400, but again this is an impressive result from the X-E2.
