Summary

Our Score:

7

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 pictures were taken indoors using reflected natural light

----

This is the full frame at 80 ISO.

----

Even at the lowest sensitivity setting there is visible image noise in this 1/8th sec exposure.

----

Image noise, low contrast and poor colour fidelity at 100 ISO.

----

Even more noise at 200 ISO and 1/15th sec.

----

At 400 ISO and a 1/40th sec exposure the results are worse than most other compacts produce at 1600 ISO.

----

800 ISO and the image quality is completely unusable.

----

At the maximum 1250 ISO the image has almost no detail or colour, and is swamped by image noise.

----

This is the full frame at 1250 ISO.

Hi





Only partly on topic here, but have you guys ever considered reviewing camera lens? I'm trying to find a decent wide-angle lens, but decent reviews are few and far between...

Hi TheEvilGenius :)





Have you tried the Fred Miranda's page? -> http://www.fredmiranda.com/rev...

Also there's the more scientific side of things very well covered at; http://www.photozone.de/ and there's also a fair bit on http://www.dpreview.com/.





Personally I like the Fred Miranda ones as they are 'in the field' user reviews.

I have considered doing lens tests, and Riyad and I have discussed it several times, but I don't have the budget for the expensive optical testing software needed, nor do I have the space in my flat for the permanent studio that I'd need to ensure consistent and accurate results. If either of those factors changes then I'll reconsider.

I think the sky colour looks just fine.
