Nikon CoolPix L14 - Test shots - ISO performance

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.

/94/930d4b/fca9/6158-NikonL14ISOmin.jpg

This was taken at 86 ISO, which was as low as the automatic ISO system would let me go for this shot.

Even at 86 ISO, the image quality is fairly poor.

By selecting the Night Landscape scene mode, I was able to fool the camera into selecting a higher ISO setting, in this case 186 ISO. As you can see, even at this setting there are serious noise problems.

Shooting later at night, the auto ISO selected 400, with even worse results, not helped by the poor focusing.

This is the full frame at 400 ISO.
