The top setting of ISO 3200 is both noisy and soft.


Taking the TZ30 out of the studio for a moment, here's how it performs when faced with a 'real-world' low-light situation. Note that all of the following images were taken using a tripod and the TZ30's self-timer.

Panasonic Lumix TZ30 ISO 100
Using ISO 100 as the benchmark, the TZ30 has produced a pleasing twilight picture of Trebarwith Strand.
