The WB600’s ISO range starts as low as ISO80. We wouldn’t expect to see noise creeping into shadow detail at this stage, but if you look for it, it’s there… even if subtly so.
The same framing at ISO100 and noise is beginning to become more noticeable, particularly across the body of the light blue car.
OK, so it may be subtle, but even at ISO200 the image is becoming more noticeably grainy over ISO100.
We’re at ISO400 and noise is visible across the whole of the image, though the red car disguises it better.
ISO800 and there’s noise, with matters getting incrementally worse.
Looking at ISO1600, and we find a setting that would be best to avoid using unless pushed. We’re getting an overall sandy appearance and notably losing edge definition.
…At ISO3200 it appears as if we’re viewing our test image through frosted glass as the frame takes on a distinctly impressionistic appearance.
