”Over the next few pages we show a range of test shots. On this page the full size image at the minimum ISO setting has been reduced to let you see the full image, and below that a series of full resolution crops have taken from original images at a range of ISO settings to show the overall image quality.”

At the minimum 64 ISO the image quality is quite good.


—-


At just ISO 100 however there is some sign of image noise.


—-


Slightly more noise at ISO 200, with colour mottling in the lighter areas.


—-


At ISO 400 there is visible noise right across the image.


—-


At ISO 800 there appears to be less colour noise, but only because it is overwhelmed by the luminance noise and loss of saturation.


—-


Both chromatic and luminance noise at ISO 1600.


—-


Why bother having an ISO 3200 setting when the image quality is this poor?


—-


This is the full frame at ISO 3200.
