Samsung WB500 - Test Shots - ISO Performance

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. These pictures were taken indoors in a shaded area.

/94/7bb795/2712/12026-wb500isomin.jpg

This is the full frame at 80 ISO. It's the 15th century astronomical clock in Exeter Cathedral.

----

/94/0bec2b/a880/12026-wb500iso80.jpg

No noise and pin-sharp detail at 80 ISO.

----

/94/2d6ed6/cc0f/12026-wb500iso100.jpg

Identical results at 100 ISO, unsurprisingly.

/94/3c99f1/2b4f/12026-wb500iso400.jpg

There is a hint of noise at 400 ISO, but overall quality is still very good.

----

/94/c55418/0906/12026-wb500iso800.jpg

More noise at 800 ISO, but colour and contrast remain good, and the picture is quite printable.

----

/94/06777c/a189/12026-wb500iso1600.jpg

Much more noise at 1600 ISO, with loss of detail and faded contrast.

----

/94/59bb66/817a/12026-wb500iso3200.jpg

3200 ISO is available at 3MP, but the quality is not brilliant.

----

/94/0a4e92/cfde/12026-wb500isomax.jpg

This is the full frame at 3200 ISO.
