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.
1/2 sec, f/4.5, ISO 100
Unfortunately the long exposure has allowed in some camera shake. However the image is totally free of any image noise.
1/4 sec, f/4.5, ISO 200
At 200 ISO the shot is thankfully shake free, and also noise free.
1/8 sec, f/4.5, ISO 400
400 ISO and still no trace of image noise.
1/13 sec, f/4.5, ISO 800
800 ISO and there is still no trace of image noise. The shot is virtually indistinguishable from the previous two.
1/25 sec, f/4.5, ISO 1600
At 1600 ISO there is some evidence of noise reduction at work, causing some artefacts to appear around edges and details, but the image is still very high quality and would print well.
