”Over the next few pages we show a range of test shots.

These pictures were taken indoors using reflected natural light ”

This is the full frame at 100 ISO.

At the minimum ISO setting the image quality is pretty much flawless despite the 1/4-second exposure.

Much the same at 800 ISO.

The image quality is quite printable at 1600 ISO, which is about what you need for good indoor no-flash photography.
