A range of test shots are shown over the next few pages. Here, the full size image has been reduced for bandwidth purposes, and a crop taken from the original full resolution image has been placed below it in order for you to gain an appreciation of the overall quality. The following pages consist of resized images so that you can evaluate the overall exposure. For those with a dial-up connection, please be patient while the pages download.
The following shots were taken in aperture priority mode at F8.0, with -1 exposure compensation. Light is from two tungsten bulbs, using manual white balance.
At the minimum 50 ISO setting the image is smooth as James Bond’s tuxedo, although the maximum 1-second exposure has caused slight under-exposure.
At 100 ISO the shot is still noise-free, and also correctly exposed.
At 200 ISO the shot is still very good, although a little noise is visible in the darker areas, and there is some colour distortion.
At the maximum 400 ISO setting, there is a good deal of image noise all across the image, although contrast is still good and the image is usable.
