A range of test shots are shown over the next few pages. Here, the full size image at the minimum ISO setting has been reduced for bandwidth purposes to let you see the full image, and a series of crops taken from original full resolution images at a range of ISO settings have been placed below it in order for you to gain an appreciation of the overall quality.



At 100 ISO the image is clean and noise free.


Already at 200 ISO there is some evidence of image noise.


Noise is progressively worse at 400 ISO.


Aggressive noise reduction has smudged out a lot of detail at 800 ISO.


More detail lost, and more noise, at 1250 ISO.


At the selectable maximum of 1600 ISO the image is very poor, but at least overall colour rendition is still ok.


This is the full frame at 1600 ISO.
