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 tungsten photoflood lighting.

----

The full image at ISO 100.

----

At ISO100 all is well with the D3100's performance.

----

At ISO200 there's similarly no image noise to report.

----

We're at ISO400 and a clean bill of health once again.

----

And so it continues at ISO800...

----

...and ISO1600.

----

Remarkably, at ISO3200 only the sharpest pair of eyes would notice any difference between this and the previous two ISO settings.

----

It's only really at top whack ISO12,600 equivalent (Hi2 setting on the D3100) that we're getting the tell-tale speckled appearance we'd expect to find creeping at ISO800 and above on lesser models.

----

Here's the full image at ISO12,600 (Hi2).
