User Score:

A range of test shots are shown over the next few pages. Here, the full size images at the minimum and maximum ISO settings have been reduced for bandwidth purposes to let you see the full image, and a series of crops taken from original full resolution images at a range of ISO settings have been included in order for you to gain an appreciation of the overall quality.


This is the full frame at 64 ISO.


At the minimum ISO setting the image is clean and sharp.


There is very little difference at 100 ISO.


At 200 ISO there is some colour distortion in the darker areas.


Some visible noise at 400 ISO, but the overall quality is still pretty good.


The noise is very visible at 800 ISO, but it would still look OK on a small print.


Image quality is greatly reduced at 1600 ISO, with severe noise and degraded colour.


Image quality is worse still at the maximum 2000 ISO.


This is the full frame at 2000 ISO.

This camera has endured itself to me through it's simplicity and thoughtful design. It does not have every knob but what it does have are the most essential and useful features organized into very logical menus and the shooting mode dial. The body is made up of solid polycarbonate material that typically finds it way into high end bike levers made by Shimano. Except of the lack of granularity (full stop adjustments) in the manual mode, I give it 5/5 stars.
