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 ”

400 ISO and there are still no significant problems.

800 ISO and already noise is visible, and colour depth is reduced.

Exposure is slightly more accurate at 1600 ISO, but the red is very blotchy.
