Do not!, buy this camera. The reviews are not truthful, Fuji is not truthful. This is the noisiest camera I ever saw, bar none. It has noise in broad daylight, @ ISO 100.

I've got it, and will keep it. To return it would cost me, to go to the trouble would fruatrate me, I would not see any refund on my card for a month. So I have just become a hoax supporter. But you don't have to be. DO NOT BUT THIS CAMERA !!.

See this is absolutely unacceptable. ISO 3200.

I see what you mean. ISO 3200? I would be upset too.

Oh, no question about it, this is! ISO 3200. The exif data is not available, because it was saved as a TIFF file at resizing.

I checked it for noise in Topaz 5 Denoise, but there was none that would have made any visible to the viewer difference to remove. Not saying there was absolutely none, but none that would have been imperative to viewing to remove.

But you cannot do this by a regular setting to ISO 3200, its a special app called "Pro Low Light", but I would have loved this a few years ago in the Smithsonian Institute.

But I did mean what I said, about noise @ ISO 100 in daylight. This would probably not be your best bet!, for a landscape camera. What the noise reduction does to folaige in the shadows, should not be done to your worst enemy. I haven't tried to reduce the NR yet, possibly that would help.

You could still get by with 5x7 prints, but I am afraid 8x10 or greater would be questionable. But this is a Touristy Camera, most would only print 6x4 from anyway, and that is the way Fuji looked at it; in my opinion. After all it is not the most expensive of cameras, so how much do you expect?.

With the exceptional build quality, the lens, and overall performance. You are still getting a big bang for your buck.
