Why you can trust TechRadar We spend hours testing every product or service we review, so you can be sure you’re buying the best. Find out more about how we test.
We shoot a specially designed chart in carefully controlled conditions and the resulting images are analysed using DXO Analyzer software to generate the data to produce the graphs below.
A high signal to noise ratio (SNR) indicates a cleaner and better quality image.
For more more details on how to interpret our test data, check out our full explanation of our noise and dynamic range tests.
JPEG signal to noise ratio
Analysis: We tested the X100T against its predecessor, the X100S, the Ricoh GR and the Nikon CoolPix A. The X100T's JPEGs were identical to those of the X100s, and you'd expect, and both cameras outperformed the Ricoh and Nikon.
Raw signal to noise ratio
Analysis: The tables were turned when comparing the raw files. We weren't able to test the X100T's raw files fully (see the main text) which explains the discrepancy with the X100s – we expect the figures to be much closer in the real world. The Nikon CoolPix A comes out on top, though.
JPEG dynamic range
Analysis: Again, the X100T and X100S produce nearly identical results. Both lag behind the Ricoh GR and CoolPix A, though Fuji's dynamic range expansion mode (not tested) should close the gap.
Raw dynamic range
Analysis: The Ricoh GR is the loser in this test, while the two Fuji cameras and the Nikon CoolPix A are very evenly matched.

Amy has been writing about cameras, photography and associated tech since 2009. Amy was once part of the photography testing team for Future Publishing working across TechRadar, Digital Camera, PhotoPlus, N Photo and Photography Week. For her photography, she has won awards and has been exhibited. She often partakes in unusual projects - including one intense year where she used a different camera every single day. Amy is currently the Features Editor at Amateur Photographer magazine, and in her increasingly little spare time works across a number of high-profile publications including Wired, Stuff, Digital Camera World, Expert Reviews, and just a little off-tangent, PetsRadar.
