Nikon CoolPix S500 - Test shots - ISO performance

A range of test shots are shown over the next few pages. Here, the full size image at the minimum ISO setting has 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 placed below it in order for you to gain an appreciation of the overall quality.





At the minimum 50 ISO the picture quality is very good.



Likewise at 100 ISO there are no problems.



At 200 ISO however there is a sudden reduction in image quality.



Even worse at 400 ISO.



At 800 ISO there is image noise across the whole frame.



Image quality at 1600 ISO is very poor.



At the maximum 2000 ISO the image is all but useless.
