Panasonic DMC-L1 Digital SLR Review - Test Shots – Full Res Crops Review

A range of test shots are shown over the next few 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.


1/50th, f/4, ISO 100

At the minimum ISO setting the picture is silky smooth with no noise, as you’d expect.


1/60th, f/5, ISO 200

At 200 ISO there is still no image noise.


1/125th, f/5.6, ISO 400

Up to 400 ISO and already there is visible noise in the darker areas of the image.


1/160th, f/6.3, ISO 800

At 800 ISO the image noise is now quite significant, but the image is just about usable.


1/200th, f/8, ISO 1600

At the maximum 1600 ISO the image noise is now so bad that the shot is effectively unusable.
