Ricoh GR Digital II - Test Shots - ISO Performance

Summary

Our Score:

9

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 80 ISO.

----

At the lowest ISO setting the image quality is superb, with smooth colour tones and no visible noise.

----

Still no noise problems at 100 ISO, as one might expect.

----

At 200 ISO there is a little fine-grained colour noise, but not enough to cause a problem.

----

Noise is more visible at 400 ISO, but colour accuracy and detail are still very good.

----

Image quality is very much worse at 800 ISO, with poor colour and little fine detail.

----

At 1600 ISO the image quality is very poor indeed.

Thanks for an informative review - I too am wrestling with the idea of upgrading from my original GR Digital Mk1.





Presumably the MK1 accessories all still work with this newer design?

Yes, the GR Digital II has the same bayonet mount for the GW-1 and GT-1 accessory lenses, and the hot-shoe mounted GV-1 optical viewfinder works exactly as before.
