Samsung WB550 - 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 using reflected natural light.

The image quality is very good at minimum ISO, but there's some colour noise in this 1.0 second exposure.

Virtually identical results at 100 ISO. The white marks are dust on the model car itself. I really must clean it.

Slightly more luminance noise at 200 ISO.

The colour gradients are getting a bit patchy at 400 ISO, but the overall quality is still very good.

----

/94/43589f/eba5/12288-samsungwb550iso800.jpg

Noise is becoming a problem at 800 ISO.

----

/94/a68aba/4822/12288-samsungwb550iso1600.jpg

Tonal gradation is severely affected at 1600 ISO.

----

/94/37a961/b73f/12288-samsungwb550iso3200.jpg


3200 ISO is available, but only at 3MP. Image quality is pretty poor.

This is the full frame at 3200 ISO.
