Overall, I think the XS camera is better, especially coming from an 8. Better low-light especially. But there are a lot of instances where the noise reduction is way, way over-aggressive. Especially when the shots involve people, faces and skin, but I also see a lot of other instances where detail gets lost: nature, architecture, etc. Is there ANY way to turn this down? Or, even better, turn it off? As someone who takes a crapton of pics I would appreciate not being FORCED to have to use this feature. IMO this is similar to auto-applying "image enhancement" (magic wand) to every photo in a way that's permanent.
