A range of test shots are shown over the next few pages. Here, the full size image has been reduced for bandwidth purposes, and a crop taken from the original full resolution image has been placed below it in order for you to gain an appreciation of the overall quality.
0.3 secs, f/3.2, ISO 80
I think I may have more photos of Mol’s Coffee House than anyone else in history, but it does look good in this silky-smooth 80 ISO shot.
1/4 sec, f/3.2, ISO 100
At 100 ISO as well the image is very smooth, with no visible noise.
1/8 sec, f/3.2, ISO 200
Unfortunately, image noise is already creeping in at only 200 ISO, although it’s not too bad and the image is still quite usable.
1/15 sec, f/3.2, ISO 400
At 400 ISO the image noise and colour speckling are now visible in all dark and mid-tone areas, but again it’s not too severe and the image is good enough to print, but not too big.
1/30 sec, f/3.2, ISO 800
At the maximum 800 ISO the noise levels are much worse and the image quality is much lower, losing a lot of shadow detail and colour saturation.
