”A range of test shots are shown over the next few pages. Here, the full size image at the minimum ISO setting has been reduced for bandwidth purposes to let you see the full image, and a series of crops taken from original full resolution images at a range of ISO settings have been placed below it in order for you to gain an appreciation of the overall quality.”

64 ISO and the R6 produces a beautifully smooth image with no noise at all.


—-


Still no image noise at 100 ISO.


—-


200 ISO and the image is still largely noise-free.


—-


400 ISO and there is now visible noise in the mid-tone area and some colour speckling in the darker areas.


—-


At 800 ISO there is now quite a lot of image noise all over the image, but the level of detail is still quite high and the picture is usable.


—-


At the maximum 1600 ISO the noise is quite coarse grained, and although the colour and detail are still good this would not make a good print.
