Olympus mju 790 SW 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.”

There is some visible noise at 200 ISO, but it is not enough to cause problems.

The noise level is higher at 400 ISo, but the image is still printable.

Image quality is seriously affected at the maximum 1600 ISO, with faded colour and low detail.
