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.
Note: These ISO test shots were taken indoors using diffused natural daylight and automatic white balance. Can you spot the deliberate mistake in this chess puzzle?
1/5th sec, F4.4, 50 ISO.
At the minimum sensitivity setting of 50 ISO the image is nice and smooth, but the rather hard sharpening detract from the overall quality.
At 100 ISO the slightly raised contrast actually shows up a little more detail than the previous shot, but there is some slight colour distortion in the darker areas.
Some slight noise is creeping in at 200 ISO, and the colour distortion is a little worse than before, but on the whole the picture isn’t too bad.
At the maximum 400 ISO the image now has a lot of noise, and the darker areas are speckled with red and green patches, but overall image quality is still quite usable.
