A range of test shots are shown over the next two pages. Here, the full resolution image has been reduced in size for bandwidth purposes, and a crop (taken from the original full resolution image at Adobe ImageReady jpg quality 60) follows each image in order for you to gain an appreciation of the overall quality. The next page consists of resized images (to Adobe ImageReady jpg quality 50) so that you can evaluate the overall exposure. For those with a dial-up connection, please be patient while the page downloads.
This shot was taken into direct, bright sunlight, but the exposure system has coped perfectly, with no loss of shadow detail and no burned-out highlights.
23mm (approx. 112mm equivalent), f8.2, 1/420sec, ISO 50.
The level of detail in this macro shot is incredible. If you zoom in you can see things that you simply wouldn’t notice with the naked eye.
8mm (approx. 39mm equivalent), f4.8, 1/2000sec, ISO 100.
ISO 50 - There is absolutely no noise at all in this image, and the level of detail is amazing. Look at the wood texture for example.
ISO 100 - There is no appreciable difference between this shot and the one taken at ISO 50.
ISO 200 - There is still no significant image noise, but there is some evidence of sharpening as a result of noise reduction. Some fine detail has been lost.
ISO 400 - The shot is about one stop over-exposed. There is still very little noise, but there are signs of a lot of sharpening.
