Nikon D7000 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. These pictures were taken indoors using tungsten photoflood lighting. ”

Full frame at ISO100 and we’re no expecting any noise with the D7000. Nor do we see it.


—-



Same subject at ISO200 and similarly no image noise to report.


—-



We’re at ISO400 and still we’re getting a clean, clear and crisp image.

ISO800 and there’s noise creeping into shadow detail on close up inspection, but very, very fine in appearance.


—-



We’re at ISO1600 and commendably there’s barely any noticeable difference between this and ISO800.


—-



The same could be said of ISO3200, in comparison with ISO1600 and ISO800.


—-



There’s very fine grain across the image at ISO6400 setting, but again you wouldn’t really notice its appearance unless you were searching for it.


—-



At maximum expanded Hi2, ISO25600 equivalent setting, we’re getting the tell tale speckled appearance of noise washing across the entire image – but this is no worse than most compacts manage at ISO1600, and an option to reach for when all else might fail.
