The montage above takes a closer look at noise in relation to sensitivity. The four insets are 1:1 crops from the original images. The larger top image (not at full res) is there to give an indication of where the crop was taken. As you can see the noise is controlled well for a compact digital camera. Noise is evident at ISO 400. (”f2.5, 1/60sec for all shots, with flash output controlled/throttled by the camera”).
This image really shows up chromatic aberrations around the leaf’s periphery. The G6 shows some blue fringing, but it is certainly on a par with the more expensive Pro1. (”Both shots: ISO 100, 1/125sec, f5.6”)
This image demonstrates that the G6 is capable of capturing detailed and well-saturated pictures. The sky and autumnal colours are accurately reproduced. The image has been reduced in size. (”1/1250, F4.5, ISO 50, 121.5mm-equivalent”).
