Canon PowerShot A3100 IS - Test Shots – ISO Performance Review

”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.”

At the minimum ISO setting the picture quality is pretty good, with no noise and plenty of detail.

Still no problems at 100 ISO, as one might expect.

Detail is greatly reduced at 800 ISO.

Image quality at 1600 ISO is very poor.
