Olympus FE-5020 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 reflected natural light. ”

This is the full frame at 64 ISO. Unfortunately the FE-5020’s quarter-second maximum shutter time has meant the shot is very under-exposed.

You can barely make it out through the murk, but there’s visible noise even at 64 ISO.


—-


Still badly under-exposed at 100 ISO.


—-


There’s a little more light at 200 ISO, and also more image noise.


—-


Almost the correct exposure at 400 ISO, but already colour is starting to fade.


—-


800 ISO and noise is a big problem.


—-


At 1600 ISO the colours are running into each other.


—-


This is the full frame at maximum ISO.
