Indoor Crops

The crops below show the image quality of the Canon Powershot SX610 HS next to the Fujifilm X-Q2
Fujifilm X-Q2
. The Canon uses a conventional 1/2.3" CMOS sensor while the Fuji is equipped with a slightly larger 2/3" X-Trans CMOS II sensor which uses a different color-array and no anti-alias filter to maximize sharpness.

All images below are 100% crops from their respective camera taken at the highest image quality JPEG setting available. ISO, aperture and WB were set on camera. As usual, image parameters were optimized to obtain the best image quality from their respective camera. These crops help determine which ISO settings is acceptable on these cameras. When noise increases, most cameras compensate with noise reduction which introduces softness. The point at which a print become unacceptably noisy is a matter of personal taste.

The Canon SX610 HS clearly falls behind the Fuji X-Q2 which has one stop advantage at low sensitivities which widens to two stops at high-ISO. Even the small difference in sensor-size has a noticeable impact in low-light. Still, given a 20 MP resolution, the SX610 is capable of some nice prints.
