Olympus FE-250 - 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 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 ISO setting of 64 the image quality is excellent, although you'll notice a dead pixel in this and following shots. The pixel-mapping function was able to correct it though.



Still nice and clean at 100 ISO.



No problems at 200 ISO.



A little noise showing at 400 ISO, but nothing serious.



At 800 ISO the noise is worse, but still printable.



The noise reduction suddenly kicks in at 1600 ISO and image quality takes a nose dive.



Looking pretty ropey at 3200 ISO, the highest full-resolution setting.



6400 ISO is available at 3 megapixels, but looks a bit cack.



There aren't any other compacts that can shoot at 10,000 ISO, and here's why.



Here's the full-frame image at 10,000 ISO. It's horrible, but the fact it can do it at all is amazing.
