Casio Exilim EX-ZR10 - Test shots: ISO performance

A selection of images taken at the camera's incremental light sensitivity settings, using only available daylight, against a white background and with white balance set to auto.'

----

----


Shooting with the EX-ZR10 set to Auto ISO, it has chosen a setting equivalent to ISO 160. A good choice as this has produced a crisp and clear, noise free result.

----


Same composition shot at ISO 100, the lowest manually selectable setting, and as you'd expect a barely discernible difference in appearance.

----


Same lack of noise to report at ISO 200, so the camera is performing as well as we would expect for its point and shoot class.

----


We're at ISO 400, usually the setting at which noise begins to creep in on if we're unlucky. Here, if we're being particularly picky, some very fine grain is creeping into shadow detail, but most wouldn't notice.

----


Marginally more obvious noise and softening of edge detail at ISO 800, but still a more than acceptable performance from the Casio.

----


Softer again and more obvious noise at ISO 1600. But, as we noted in our review of the EX-H20G, we'd still be happy reaching for this option when pushed.

----


At ISO3200, even without the need to crop in on detail it's obvious that we're losing it, with a softened look across the entire image. Again though it's an option to reach for when pushed, and especially if you might not otherwise achieve the image you hope for.
