Genius G-Shot P831 - Test Shots - ISO Performance

By Cliff Smith



Our Score:


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. These ISO test images are shot indoors using reflected natural light for maximum consistency.


This is the full frame at 50 ISO


Image quality even at 50 ISO is pretty ropey, over-compressed and lacking colour depth.


At 100 ISO the noise reduction is already affecting image quality.


Noise reduction has blurred details at 200 ISO.


400 ISO looks like it was painted in cheap acrylics.


800 ISO had almost no fine detail left.


1600 ISO is pretty terrible, but at least the exposure is consistent.

I know this is 'ultra-cheap', but it's still 65 quid, and for that it seems like an absolute rip-off. I would argue you dont get what you pay for at all. I quick trip to amazon reveals you can pick up a samsung S1070 10mp cam for 68 quid, and that was literally the first sub-100 camera on the very front page of the digital cameras section. I dont know the samsung is any better, but it demonstrates there is a lot more to choose from at this price point, and plenty of well-known brands too. This G-Shot thing seems awesomely bad.

Thanks for the review. Consumers should realize that a brand name usually means something and no-name brands are not "just as good."
