A range of test shots are shown over the next few pages. Here, the full size image has been reduced for bandwidth purposes, and a crop taken from the original full resolution image has been placed below it in order for you to gain an appreciation of the overall quality.


1/125th, f/6.7, ISO 200

The K100D’s minimum ISO setting of 200 produces a nice noise-free shot at a reasonable shutter speed.


1/80th, f/8, ISO 400

At 400 ISO the image is still perfectly noise free, with good colour and contrast.


1/350th, f/9.5, ISO 800

At 800 ISO there is a slight hint of colour speckling in the dark and mid-tone areas, but the image is still quite usable.


1/500th, f/9.5, ISO 1600

At 1600 ISO there is slightly more visible noise than at 800, but still surprisingly little. Again the image is printable.


1/1000th, f/11, ISO 3200

At 3200 ISO the image is showing a lot of noise and colour distortion, although overall detail is still good. Could be used in emergencies, but best avoided.
