Our Score:


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. The following pages consist of resized images so that you can evaluate the overall exposure. For those with a dial-up connection, please be patient while the pages download.


Note: These ISO test shots were taken on a very dull overcast day, in fairly heavy rain, at maximum zoom. The haziness is due to the weather conditions, not the camera.


1/10th sec at F5.2, 64 ISO. At the minimum sensitivity setting the picture is clear and noise-free, although there is a slight unevenness to the colour in darker areas.


1/15th sec at F5.2, 100 ISO. At 100 ISO the image is still largely noise-free, not much different to the previous shot.


1/30th sec at F5.2, 200 ISO. At 200 ISO there is colour speckling visible in all darker areas, although the noise is still well controlled and the image is usable.


1/60th sec at F5.2, 400 ISO. At the maximum 400 ISO there is now noise and colour speckling visible in all darker areas, and colours are starting to look distorted, but still not too bad.
