Fuji X-T2 Max. ISO, Base & Extended A Tad Low Compared To Latest Nikon & Pentax.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE. I put this together for my edification.

That the max. extended ISO on the Fuji X-T2 has remained unchanged from that of the X-T1 (which is 2.5 years older) has gone unsaid in all of the current raves about this latest Fuji flagship. ISO 51,200 is not bad. It is the same as what I have on my Fuji X-E2s and I know that at that ISO, barring the noise, you can turn darkness into light.

That said, I have also noticed, and some quick Googling seems to bear this out, that Fuji ISO tends to be on the low side. I notice that I am invariably using 200 more ISO with Fuji than what I am normally accustomed to; i.e., setting 640 ISO on a Fuji when I would normally use 400, and 1,000 when I might have settled for 800. I still find that Fuji, both my X-E2s and the rented X-T1, invariably underexposes too — though I know that I prefer brighter exposure to that of darker. So I am also continually shooting with E/V set +1/3 or +2/3 higher.

The Nikon D500 numbers are obscene. That is a full 32 x uptick! Barring noise that really would allow you so much latitude in terms of handheld shooting at night or at concerts.

So something else to think about.

Click for ‘Washington Post’ stroy. Google for thousands more.

This is supposed to be a MAXIMUM SECURITY prison?

Come on. It sounds like it was an out-of-control Butlins Holiday Camp. What is this? A joke.

Those prisoners were having more sex with prison guards than MOST Wall Street brokers living in NY?


I have NOT heard anything about the Warden.

Shouldn’t he already be arrested and thrown in jail for gross dereliction of duty?

This is NOT funny.

delayed221Having been with TDS for nearly 6 years (starting off with Union Tel. which was acquired by TDS) I think I know TDS better than most that work for TDS.

So when I was told (maybe even ‘promised’) 1 Gigabit Internet in Alton, New Hampshire by October 2015 — with the possibility of being able to beta test it in august 2015 — I took it with a LARGE grain of salt. I just knew it was too good to be true. Lets face it. TDS had been promising me 25Mbps Internet for years and that never came.

That is why, after some intense agonizing, I went with MetroCast’s 75Mbps in January of this year. Other than the 2 weeks of HELL I went through in late February when the service was either down or slow, they have, to my immense surprise and delight, managed to maintain a very stable service with NO bandwidth degradation. Yes, it is true that I use my own ARRIS/Motorola SurfBoard SB6141 to get maximum channel bonding. That said, I have not seen any significant bandwidth drop even on a Saturday night. So I am happy with the MetroCast 75Mbps. Credit where credit is due.

That said I decided to get a 15Mbps Fiber connection from TDS in ADDITION to my 75Mbps from MetroCast! 

More on that on a different post SOON.

But while ordering the 15Mbps AND DISH (via TDS because I will get a $100 bill credit next month for doing that) I got the scoop on the 1 Gigabit.

It has been delayed. No surprise. I knew that was inevitable. There are now talking ‘Spring’ 2016 BUT somebody else, in the field, said ‘this time next year’ — meaning June.

Appears that there is some politics at play to do with Towns and the monopoly agreement that carriers sign with them.

Seems Chichester, N.H., now has 1 Gigabit as does New London.

I also got a PRICE. It will be around $123/month BEFORE taxes.

I will keep you posted.
