Fujifilm FinePix S8000fd Review - 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.”

At the minimum setting of 64 ISO the image quality is superb, with no trace of noise and perfect colour rendition.


—-


Still very good at 100 ISO.


—-


Due to the small sensor there is a some image noise creeping in at 200 ISO, but it would be unnoticeable on all but the largest print.


—-


Noise is a little worse at 400 ISO, but still not much to worry about, with plenty of detail left.


—-


At 800 ISO the noise reduction system really kicks in and the image quality suffers as detail is sacrificed to reduce noise.


—-


At the highest full-resolution setting of 1600 ISO the image quality is considerably lower, with random speckles and poor detail.


—-


3200 ISO is available but only at 4MP, resulting in a smaller image size and very poor detail, but it would probably look OK in a small print.


—-


Image quality at 6400 ISO is very poor, looking like a still from a webcam, but overall colour and exposure are not too bad.


—-


This is the full frame 4MP shot at 6400 ISO.
