ISO
The full ISO test still-life.

125
As this 100% crop shows the Pentax Q delivers noise-free images at ISO 125.

200
At ISO 200 images are still noise-free and display good shadow detail.

400
At ISO 400 shadow detail remains strong with only a minor softening of detail.

800
At ISO 800 whereas most 1/2.3in sensors are starting to fail, the Pentax Q is still producing pretty good results.

1600
By ISO 1600 there is quite a noticeable softening in detail. However, compared to the vast majority of compacts the overall results hold up very well indeed.

3200
By ISO 3200 the image has started to degrade quite noticeably.

6400
The top sensitivity setting of ISO 6400 shows a dramatic loss of detail.
