Ricoh Caplio R3 - Test Shots - Full Res Crops
A range of test shots are shown over the next three 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.
At the minimum setting of 64 ISO the R3 produces a clean crisp image with no trace of noise at all. Lovely.
At 100 ISO there is some slight colour speckling visible, but on the whole the shot is clean and quite printable.
At 200 ISO the colour noise is a lot more noticeable, some fine detail has been lost and colour saturation is beginning to fade.
At 400 ISO the image is now very noisy, with large patches of random colour noise in shadow areas. This is a setting for low light emergencies only.
At the maximum 800 ISO the image is so noisy my flatmate just popped his head round the door and asked me to turn it down.
