Canon EOS 500D Digital SLR - 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

/94/63a8b0/76b1/12174-500disomin.jpg

This is the full frame at 100 ISO.

----

/94/a0f456/c539/12174-500diso100.jpg

At the minimum ISO setting the image quality is pretty much flawless despite the 1/4-second exposure.

----

/94/9d4402/ebc7/12174-500diso200.jpg

Virtually identical results at 200 ISO.

----

/94/f8ab8f/adc1/12174-500diso400.jpg

There is a bit of chroma noise in the mid-tone areas at 400 ISO, but it's nothing serious.

----

/94/892332/e87c/12174-500diso800.jpg

Much the same at 800 ISO.

----

/94/37063a/0705/12174-500diso1600.jpg

The image quality is quite printable at 1600 ISO, which is about what you need for good indoor no-flash photography.

----

/94/5f6da7/5990/12174-500diso3200.jpg

3200 ISO is getting a bit noisy, but it's not completely unusable.
