At ISO100, and with gradation set to Normal, image quality is high, with good tonality, colour and high levels of detail.


—-


At ISO200, there’s slight improvement in contrast and apparent sharpness.


—-


Images at ISO400 retain good detail and colour.


—-


At ISO800 there’s slightly gritty luminance noise, and quite noticeable colour speckling in the darker shadows.


—-


At ISO1600 noise reduction is removing colour speckling in brighter areas leaving quite pronounced gritty noise.


—-


At ISO3200 using the default Auto NR and STD Noise Filter settings there’s distinctly more colour noise than at lower ISOs and there’s a noticeable lowering of detail but it’s likely fine for small prints.
