Dynamic range

Image: The shadow areas in the original shot appear completely black, but brightening the exposure +3EV reveals plenty of detail

In its standard picture mode, the Fuji X100S is capable of capturing a wide range of tones. Like most other camera systems, there are options available that will extend this range. Dynamic range is available in various strengths, with 400% the strongest, which creates HDR-like images. This setting is only available when the camera is set to ISO 800 or higher. Generally, the dynamic range auto option can be relied upon. When shooting in raw format, plenty of detail can be recovered from shadow areas – brightening the image by up to 3EV shows that detail from shadow areas is mostly clean and unaffected by noise.
