Casio Exilim EX-G1 - Test Shots - ISO Performance

By Cliff Smith



Our Score:


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 shaded natural light.


This is the full frame at minimum ISO.


At 640 ISO the shot is a little under-exposed, but pin-sharp and noise-free.


Better exposure at 100 ISO, but still no sign of noise.


Still no noise problems at 200 ISO.


Noise reduction effects are visible, but overall quality is still good at 400 ISO.


Noise reduction has scrubbed out detail at 800 ISO, but the colours are still good.


Image quality is getting pretty poor at 1600 ISO.


No detail left at 3200 ISO.


This is the full frame at 3200 ISO.

I had to join up to comment on how inconsistent your digital camera reviews can be. This one for the EX-G1 glosses over some flaws worth mentioning - chromatic aberration in the corners of some pics - and refers to some of the high ISO pics as noisy where you would heap praise on those same results from similar cameras as being relatively clean. If it seemed like (or you stated) that you were taking other factors into consideration when making these judgements then they would seem as random. But they do. I've read probably 75 or 100 of your digital camera reviews over the last several years and this is definitely a problem. You're not as bad as Steve's for publishing useless camera reviews, but you're not far off.

... presumably in this post apocalyptic wasteland the electricity boards will still be generating electricity to charge the batteries for this "ruggedised" Casio...? I shall have my Nikon FM with me post Tuesday 30th March with some rolls of 35mm film... then wait for things to settle down a tad.....!

Had to sign up on this site to let everyone know to avoid this camera like the plague!! I bought one for its "waterproof" capabilities and took it to Hawaii. One snorkelling trip and it was toast. Went the rest of the trip using my Iphone for pics. Got back to Vancouver and couldn't find the receipt so I bought a second one planning to use that receipt to warranty my first one. Then the second one had a very essential tiny screw fall out so the hold side of the camera that little dial is on opened up (that little dial is too easy to hit by the way and opens the door for the card and cable possibly exposing it to water) The "waterproof" sealing techniques are terrible and feel really loose. Just open the card door and you'll see what i mean. Even when its closed tight it has play.

So i just got both cameras back from warranty and i took one tubing in the river yesterday and its toast already!!!

NEVER buy this camera! And I will never buy a Casio product again!

Off to spread the word...

Soooo i got one of these in 2010 i think? easter of 2010, best camera i ever bought. It endured 3 years of highschool, many vacations, snorkeling, pool side adventures, tripps to the beach paint parties, foam parties, being dropped, bumped into all kinds of things, being in the cold while snowboarding, being on a surf board. And took amazing photos. it wasnt till my spring semester of college that one of the the part where the on off switch, picture button, feel off while i was in the pool. where i proceeded to cover it with tape and still use it in the water and it still worked! i was astonished :) it was the best camera i had. I miss it. My sister gave me hers, but i dont have a charger anymore for it, so i have to order one so i can start using it. I'm absolutely psyched, this new one will be ussed to capture my fall 2014-2015 year of college, and the raves and music festivals i intend to attend!
