A range of test shots are shown over the next few pages. Here, the full size image at the minimum ISO setting has been reduced for bandwidth purposes to let you see the full image, and a series of crops taken from original full resolution images at a range of ISO settings have been placed below it in order for you to gain an appreciation of the overall quality.

----



This is the full frame at minimum ISO.

At 100 ISO the F50fd performs very well, with clean well-detailed high resolution images.

----



At 200 ISO there is already evidence of the noise reduction system kicking in, with some speckling in the darker areas.

----



At 400 ISO there is more speckling and the colour is starting to look blotchy.

----



Fine detail is starting to break down at 800 ISO due to the noise reduction processing.

----



1600 ISO is the highest full-res setting, but image quality is no better than most other 12MP compacts.

----



3200 ISO is available at 6MP resolution, but image quality is poor.

----



6400 ISO is available at 3MP resolution, but it is practically unusable.

----



This is the full frame at maximum ISO.
