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. These ISO test images are shot indoors using reflected natural light for maximum consistency.

This is the full frame at 64 ISO.

----

Image quality is very good at 64 ISO.

----

Still no major problems at 100 ISO

----

Image quality is still pretty good at 200 ISO.

----

Noise is starting to creep in at 400 ISO, with colour distortions ans blotchy shade.

----

Major noise problems at 800 ISO.

----

At 1600 ISO the image quality has really fallen apart, with poor colour reproduction and little shadow detail.

This is the full frame at 1600 ISO.

Apologies for this not being directly related to the mju 9000, but does TR or anyone know of any compact digital cameras that have an interval timer, whereby the thing can be programmed to take, for example, 10 shots at the rate of one per minute? I'd have thought this would be a simple matter of software programming but have, so far, failed to come across it.

The Ricoh R10 can do time lapse in incriments of five seconds, from five seconds up to three hours. You can download the manual here (http://www.ricoh.com/r_dc/supp... the info is on page 104, "Shooting pictures automatically at set intervals"

All Ricoh cameras have this feature, including the brand new CX1.

@ Billy Rubin & S_p_i_d_e_r. Thank you both for that. Like I mentioned, I'm surprised interval timing is such a rare feature because it would seem to easy to implement. As much as I love my Canon, it's time to switch brands.

Cliff, you talk about the focal range 28-200mm (35mm equiv.) across the entire review while the camera itself states that it has a 10x zoom, 5-50mm (35mm equiv. that should maybe be 28-280mm). Which one is correct?

theimer - You're quite correct, it should be 28-280mm. I've edited the review to correct this error. Thanks for pointing it out.

ripsnorter : Most Nikon P&S can do it as well. The S series, specifically.
