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.

At 800 ISO the image quality is very poor, with almost no fine detail at al.

Seriously, why bother having a 1600 ISO setting when it produces results like this?
