Olympus FE-5050 - 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 reflected natural light.


This is the full frame at minimum ISO.


At the minimum 64 ISO the image quality is excellent.


Image quality is still good at 100 ISO.


There's some loss of detail at 200 ISO, but no noise problems.


Noise reduction kicks in at 400 ISO, blurring out a lot of detail.


Image quality is greatly reduced at 800 ISO.


As usual, 1600 ISO is best avoided.


This is the full frame at maximum ISO.

Cliff has been working overtime coming up with so many reviews in such a short time.

Samsung WB2000/TL350 looks interesting, this should be the target of your forthcoming reviews. The image quality is comparable/close to those from LX3/5 and S90/95 except for the price.

OLYMPUS is a horrible brand with a pathetic after sales. I had bought an FE5050 camera on my trip to switzerland in Dec 2010. When I downloaded the pictures, it were all looking awful. I contacted OLYMPUS and dealer the second day but they are unwilling to do the refund. It is one month now I am chasing with no result. PLEASE DONT GET TRAPPED BY OLYMPUS. This is a horrible BRAND. Please note guys. Go for Canon or Sony or Nikon
