Olympus mju 1040 - Olympus mju 1040

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.

This is the full frame at the minimum ISO setting.

/94/699712/2f4d/10173-olympus1040iso50.jpg

Unfortunately the limited 1/4-second maximum expsoure time has severely under exposed this shot, but you can just about make out that there's very little image noise at 50 ISO.

/94/202b6d/8d3f/10173-olympus1040iso100.jpg

Still slightly underexposed at 100 ISO, and there is slight colour mottling.

----

/94/ed4cd6/1c7c/10173-olympus1040iso200.jpg

The expsoure is correct in this shot, and the noise reduction has kicked in at 200 ISO, and produced a pretty decent image.

----

/94/a0f118/5dad/10173-olympus1040iso400.jpg

The noise reduction is getting a bit heavy-handed at 400 ISO, but the shot would print well at snapshot size.

----

/94/07f940/0a01/10173-olympus1040iso800.jpg

Detail is starting to fade at 800 ISO, but colour and exposure are still accurate.

----

/94/fdbbfb/2a22/10173-olympus1040iso1600.jpg

1600 ISO and the noise reduction has reached its limit.

----

/94/3f4d36/7753/10173-olympus1040iso3200.jpg

3200 ISO is available at 3MP, but image quality is very poor.

----

/94/77814c/65c9/10173-olympus1040isomax.jpg

This is the full frame at the maximum ISO setting.
