Nikon CoolPix S230 - 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. These ISO test images are shot indoors using reflected natural light for maximum consistency.

The noise control has removed some of the problems at 200 ISO, but some fine detail has been lost.

Pretty decent image quality at 400 ISO.

At 800 ISO the image is suddenly covered in what appears to be hot pixel noise.

The situation is looking decidedly snowy at 1600 ISO.

----

/94/3a3e3a/4953/10423-nikons230iso2000.jpg

At 2000 ISO the trains have stopped running and all the schools have closed for the day.
