User Score:

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 pictures were taken indoors using shaded natural light.


This is the full frame at minimum ISO.


Even at 80 ISO there is visible colour mottling.


Image noise is slightly worse at 100 ISO.


Noise is getting worse at 200 ISO, with colour fading out in the darker areas.


At 400 ISO the image has lost all fine details.


Noise reduction has blurred the image at 800 ISO.


1600 ISO is very noisy with no details.


3200 ISO is available at 3MP.


This is the full frame at 3200 ISO.

I'm very surprised by your ratings. You are basically saying that there are significant weaknesses in this product, and that there are better cameras out there.

This is a Trusted Review, and your camera reviewers are experts. People who'll buy any camera, when they need them, don't come here for a considered and expert review. So, please, when a camera really doesn't cut it, don't give it a score above 5. A score of 7, demeans the narrow band between 8-10. So does 8 now mean "pretty awful" ?
