Pentax K200D digital SLR - Test shots - ISO performance

By Jamie Harrison



Our Score:


A range of test shots are shown over the next few pages. Here, the full size images at the minimum and maximum ISO settings have 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 included in order for you to gain an appreciation of the overall quality.


This is the full frame at 100 ISO.


Despite the severe camera shake in this shot, the image quality is good and noise-free.


Image quality is still very good at 200 ISO.


Still no major problems at 400 ISO.


Starting to show slight colour noise at 800 ISO.


Noise is plainly visible at 1600 ISO, but overall quality remains high.


This is the full frame at 1600 ISO.

Can you use old K mount lenses on this camera ?

If so what is the focal length conversion factor ?

The wikipedia English page on the Pentax K200D mentions that, and if you click on the "K-mount" link you have more detailed information about the eventual need of stop-down metering.
