Over the next few pages we show a range of test shots. On this page the full size image at the minimum and maximum ISO settings have been reduced to let you see the full image, and a series of full resolution crops have taken from original images at a range of ISO settings to show the overall image quality.

----

This is a full-frame view of the minimum ISO setting.

----

At 80 ISO the image quality is pretty much perfect, with accurate colours, good detail and no noise at all.

----

Virtually no difference at 100 ISO.

----

There is a small amount of noise visible at 200 ISO, but not enough to worry about.

----

As usual with Canon cameras, the more damaging chromatic noise is well suppressed, leaving only a little grain-like luminance noise at 400 ISO.

----

Noise is a lot more noticeable at 800 ISO, but there is still a good level of detail and the shot is printable.

----

Image quality does break down somewhat at 1600 ISO, with visible colour distortion in the darker areas.

----

This is the full frame at 1600 ISO.
