Canon PowerShot G1X - ISO Test Samples

Audley Jarvis

By Audley Jarvis



Our Score:


ISO 100 is sharp and noise free...

...as is ISO 200.

ISO 400 shows no great loss of quality from ISO 200.

By ISO there is the merest hint of softening, although it's only really visable at 100% and above.

ISO 1600 proves perfectly usable - even at 100%

ISO 3200 is still holding up exceptionally well, with plenty of shadow detail retained.

ISO 6400 is the point where things start to go downhill.

The top setting of 12,800 is noticeably soft, but remains just about acceptable when scaled down for internet use.

Probably very good, but very ugly and expensive.

You appear to have forgotten to label the ISO test samples, so I have no idea what I'm looking at.

Regarding the website in general, have you any idea why it often takes me multiple attempts to loads pages and sign in on my PC? It appears to be less of a problem when using the classic site on my phone, but I get similar problems on my PC when using your sister site, What Digital Camera. I'm not experiencing anything like it on any other website.

Does not take close ups, slow redraw and heavy. Very disappointed wished I had my G12 back.

Hello everyone! Have you heard the talk about - TOST ZON DISCOUNTS (do a google search)? Ive heard some pretty good things about it and my boss saved an awful lot of money with it. They used that small gold box, that is located on the website, to get a 65% discount on a blu ray player from Amazon. You may be able to find an interesting item(s) on Amazon at a awesome price using this tool.Just checked and there are a few deals on this product
