Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ8 Review - Test shots – ISO performance Review

”A range of test shots are shown over the next few pages. Here, the full size image at the minimum ISO setting has been reduced for bandwidth purposes to let you see the full image, and a series of crops taken from original full resolution images at a range of ISO settings have been placed below it in order for you to gain an appreciation of the overall quality.”

Even at the minimum ISO setting of 100, there is visible noise and colour distortion in this shot.


—-


The colour distortion is noticeably worse at 200 ISO.


—-


At 400 ISO the noise reduction system kicks in and reduces the colour distortion, but at the expense of fine detail.


—-


Again, there is less colour distortion at 800 ISO, but the noise reduction causes an odd mottled pattern across the entire shot.


—-


Fine detail has again been lost at the highest manual setting of 1250 ISO.
