Olympus SP-560UZ 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.”

This is the full frame at 50 ISO.


—-


At the minimum 50 ISO setting, the image quality is extremely good. That blue line is a reflection.


—-


Still very high quality at 100 ISO.


—-


At 200 ISO however there is visible noise in the darker areas of the shot.


—-


Noise is a bit worse at 400 ISO, with reduced detail and contrast.


—-


At 800 ISO the colour rendition is affected and image quality is lowered significantly.


—-


Most fine detail has been lost at 1600 ISO, and colour is badly affected.


—-


3200 ISO is pretty much unusable.


—-


The maximum 6400 ISO setting is a virtually useless gimmick.


—-


This is the full frame at 6400 ISO.
