Ricoh Caplio R5 - Test Shots - Full Res Crops
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.
1/12th, f/4.8, ISO 64
At the lowest ISO setting the image is, as one should expect, clear and noise free.
1/15th, f/4.8, ISO 100
Just 1/3rd of a stop faster at 100 ISO the image is still completely noise free.
1/30th, f/4.8, ISO 200
At 200 ISO the image is noise free, but there is some evidence of noise reduction at work.
1/60th, f/4.8, ISO 400
At 400 ISO there is some detail reduction due to noise reduction, and just a faint speckling of noise. The contrast level is lower too.
1/125th, f/4.8, ISO 800
At 800 ISO there is significant loss of fine detail and the image looks slightly soft, but is relatively noise free and would print well.
1/250th, f/4.8, ISO 1600
At the maximum ISO setting there is noise right across the image, but it is smooth and well controlled with little colour distortion. This image is quite usable.
