Fujifilm FinePix J12 - Test Shots - ISO Performance

Over the next few pages we show a range of test shots. On this page the full size image at the minimum and maximum ISO settings have been reduced to let you see the full image, and a series of full resolution crops have taken from original images at a range of ISO settings to show the overall image quality. These ISO test images are shot indoors using reflected natural light for maximum consistency.


This is the full frame at 64 ISO. As you can see the auto white balance as not gone well.


Despite the lack of contrast or saturation, there is very little visible noise in this 64 ISO shot.


Slightly more noise at 100 ISO, with some blotchy colour patches.


200 ISO, and the noise reduction system has cleaned the image up somewhat.


The blotches are back at 400 ISO, and they've brought their mates with them.


At 800 ISO a lot of fine detail has been lost.


1600 ISO, and despite the noise the colour balance is actually not too bad.


This is the full frame at 1600 ISO.

Don't buy a fujifilm!!! They do not honour their warranty!! I recently bought a J12 and the flash stopped working and they vioded the warranty. They said that there was a dent on the corner (that was not there when I sent it) and that the packaging was not damaged when they received it. Now it is going to cost me $25.00 to get the camera back (already paid $10 to ship it as fragile) just to see what 'damage' they are talking about. Still waiting for the pictures of the damage that hey promised. They now offer a 2 year warranty but really don't intended on honouring. I will never buy another fujifilm product!

Had the exact same problem you had. When discussing this problem with collegues at work, I was shocked to learn that 2 other people had this exact experience. I guess fujifilm discovered a loophole (lies,lies,lies) to not honour their crappy products. BEWARE OF FUJIFILM. Their products are defective and they will not honour the warranty. That is their guarantee

I love this camera. I got it a year ago and it's still pretty good. The focus isn't that bad, and there are quite a lot of different modes and stuff. It's very simple. I suppose I am only 14 and I don't use it for proffesional use or anything, but its really great for just taking snaps of friends or outings or whatever. I would recommend you buy this camera if you are just going to use it for like normal but not proffesional photos, and maybe it is suited for a younger audience as it is very simple to use. I have had it for a year now and it's stioll great, i've had no problems with it apart from when it got wet in the rain and I had to soak it in rice :/ but yeh.
