FujiFilm S9500 Digital Camera Image Noise Tests in Daylight

We test the S9500 during the day
We test the FujiFilm S9500 digital camera for image noise in daytime lighting.

The RAW files for these images are available on the special digital camera section of the site for download, so that you can examine the images yourself.

These
images were shot at a focal
length of 25mm (actual, 112mm in 35mm equivalent terms) in Program mode,
and with the starting exposure (80ISO) of 1/90 second @f3.8. Since
these were noise tests it was not felt necessary to keep the aperture
fixed.

The JPEG images below are 100% crops of the center part of the image and were prepared by converting the
RAW files to  JPEGs in Photoshop.

As you can see, noise is quite well controlled from ISO 80 to 200, becomes noticable at 400ISO, very heavy at 800ISO and effectively unusable as 1600ISO.
