Pentax K10D Digital SLR - 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 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 100 ISO, the minimum setting.

/94/e8ca38/6a11/6254-PentaxK10DISO100.jpg

Unsurprisingly, image quality at 100 ISO is flawless.

----

/94/544e30/8415/6254-PentaxK10DISO200.jpg

Still no problems at 200 ISO.

----

/94/cee677/4dbf/6254-PentaxK10DISO400.jpg

Some mild chromatic noise visible on this 400 ISO shot.

----

/94/651b7e/bcd8/6254-PentaxK10DISO800.jpg

Noise is definately more noticeable at 800 ISO, but the general level of detail is still very good.

----

/94/7c904f/45c9/6254-PentaxK10DISO1600.jpg

Image quality is reduced still further at 1600 ISO, but the image is still usable, and the grain of the noise is not too destructive.

----

/94/79dec9/a450/6254-PentaxK10DISOmax.jpg

This is the full frame at 1600 ISO. As you can see it is quite presentable.
