Genius G-Shot P831 - Test Shots - ISO Performance

Summary

Our Score:

5

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."
