Summary

Our Score:

8

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.

----

There are small hints of luminence noise even at the minimum ISO setting.

----

Much the same at 100 ISO, unsurprisingly.

----

Slightly more noise at 200 ISO.

----

Noise reduction is already blurring out detail at 400 ISO.

----

Image quality is really suffering at 800 ISO.

----

Very poor image quality at 1600 ISO, the maximum setting at full resolution.

----

3200 ISO is available at 3MP.

----

6400 ISO is also at 3MP, but the quality is very poor.

----

This is the full frame at 6400 ISO.

Mostly useless for the average consumer, in the UK at least. Anywhere you can find a darkened room, you'll probably also find a laptop or PC nearby. Any exceptions?

Sure. How about on a holiday? That's the primary use for most cams anyway, and most people don't lug around their laptop with them. I'm sure there are other situations where it might be handy. It's still terribly gimmicky, though, and nobody should buy one. If you think you might it, buy a standalone LED projector and connect the camera. That way you can also connect a computer or what-have-you and you don't need to lug around projector electronics when all you need is a camera.

Most places I ever visited there were internet cafes or friends with computers. I can think of one exception though - a rustic Spanish house I stayed in, 5 miles from the town, where my host cared little for electronics.
