”A range of test shots are shown over the following 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: There are only two ISO test shots this week, because the FE-150 has no manual ISO setting. Instead I have taken the same shot using standard and “image stabilisation” mode.
In standard mode the automatic ISO system selects a setting of 125 ISO for this shot. Image noise isn’t too bad, but there are purple fringes around the highlights and the AF system took six tries to lock on to it.
In “image stabilisation” mode, the camera increases the ISO to 320, giving a higher shutter speed to counteract shake. However the image has very bad colour speckling and lots of detail has been lost.
Although the flash coverage is very good, the AF system hasn’t focused in the slightly low light conditions, and the shot is blurred.
