A range of test shots are shown over the next two pages. Here, the full resolution image has been reduced in size for bandwidth purposes, and a crop (taken from the original full resolution image at Adobe ImageReady jpg quality 60) follows each image in order for you to gain an appreciation of the overall quality. The next page consists of resized images (to Adobe ImageReady jpg quality 50) in order for you to evaluate the overall exposure. For those with a dial-up connection, please be patient while the page downloads.
Under normal average conditions the exposure system produces a nicely balanced shot with plenty of detail.
The macro setting produces good sharp pictures at close range, but it took several tries to get it to focus on the right subject.
Shot at ISO 80, this image shows that the Kodak Colour Science processing engine is somewhat more intelligent than the average car driver.
At 100 ISO image noise is fairly minimal, but compression artifacts are visible and the image is under exposed.
At 200 ISO image noise is very noticeable, especially in the darker parts of the image. Again, the picture is under exposed.
At 400 ISO image noise is present right across the frame but, although difficult to tell in the small crop out, the overall exposure was slightly more accurate.
