The Z9 has arrived, but the weather is gray and cold. No one feels like modeling at an outdoor sports shoot. So what else could a geek do but put the camera to the test. I have a Z9, a Z6 and a D850. My girlfriend has a Fuji X-S10, so I thought why not put this little APS-C camera against its full-frame counterparts. Surprisingly, the X-S10 turned out to be just as good as the Z6. Above ISO 6400, maybe even a bit better, since the grain is more monochromatic (or did I do anything wrong? Tell me).
I think the Z9 is a little bit better (not much) than the D850. But worse than the Z6 and X-S10.
I would say, we have a first and second place. Z6/X-S10 on first and D850/Z9 in second place.
I tested all cameras with the following settings:
I used a Godox AD600 Pro flash in TTL to compensate for ISO settings.
Exif data is included.
In my daily shooting, I always felt that the D850 had a better ISO performance than the Z6 when downsized.

I downsized all images to 24MP to compare them at the same resolution.
