Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ7 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 ISO test images are shot indoors using reflected natural light for maximum consistency. ”

Image quality is superb at 80 ISO, although this shot is slightly under-exposed. My fault really, I’d forgotten that the minimum shutter speed was set to 1/8th of a second.
