”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.”
1/8th, f/3.2, ISO 64
At the minimum ISO setting, the picture is clean and sharp with an excellent level of fine detail.
1/13th, f/3.2, ISO 100
At 100 ISO there is virtually no difference between this shot and the previous one.
1/25th, f/3.2, ISO 200
At 200 ISO some very fine detail has been lost, but the picture is still very good with no visible noise
1/60th, f/3.2, ISO 400
There is a slight reduction in contrast, and still more fine detail has been sacrificed, but at 400 ISO this image is still free from visible noise and would make a good large print.
1/125th, f/3.2, ISO 800
At 800 ISO the picture quality has been reduced still further, and there are some artefacts produced by the noise reduction process, but there is still very little noise and the picture is still printable.
