”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 ISO test images are shot indoors using reflected natural light for maximum consistency. ”

This is the full frame at 100 ISO, the minimum setting.

At 100 ISO the image quality is pretty good, with lots of fine detail, but there is some noise visible.

That strange patch of horizontal lines is there in the uncropped shot, and goes right across the frame. I have no idea what caused it, but it doesn’t appear on any other shots. There is also more noise visible at 200 ISO.

Noise is becoming a problem at 400 ISO, with detail lost in darker areas. Compare the tyre tread in the bottom corner of the image with the 100 ISO shot.

At 800 ISO the noise reduction has blurred out most of the fine detail.

At 1600 ISO colour saturation is greatly reduced and noise is everywhere.


—-


Terrible picture quality at 3200 ISO.

6400 ISO is available at 3MP, but the picture quality is very poor.

The S710 can shoot at 12800 ISO, but when the picture quality is this bad what’s the point?

This is the full frame at 12800 ISO.
