Sony Alpha A500 - 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.



This is the full frame at 200 ISO.



At the minimum ISO setting the image is clean and sharp.



Still nice and clear at 400 ISO.



Still no problems at 800 ISO.



A bit of noise is starting to show through at 1600 ISO, but the image quality is still quite usable.



More noise at 3200 ISO, but there is still plenty of fine detail.



Image quality is starting to suffer at 6400 ISO, but colour rendition is still OK.



Image quality is pretty ropey at 12800 ISO, as well it might be.



This is the full frame at maximum ISO.
