Olympus E-510 Digital SLR - Test shots - ISO performance

Olympus E-510 Digital SLR


Our Score:


Over the next few pages we show a range of test shots. On this page the full size image at the minimum ISO setting has been reduced to let you see the full image, and below that a series of full resolution crops have taken from original images at a range of ISO settings to show the overall image quality.



At the minimum setting of ISO 100 there is, of course, no image noise.


Virtually identical at ISO 200.


Still noise-free at ISO 400.


There is some visible noise at ISO 800.


Very visible noise at ISO 1600, but not unprintable.

Having this camera for nearly one year have to say your review is spot-on.

E-510 is a beautiful camera which does"Almost" what ever you want .

Pictures sometimes under exposed and auto focus a bit slow but E-510 is a great camera and defently recomended

Its a bit misleading listing this review as 2011 - when its a 2007 camera...you should mention that the review has been updated - as I assume you aren't reviewing it 4yrs late..
