Pentax K10D Digital SLR 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 100 ISO, the minimum setting.


—-


Unsurprisingly, image quality at 100 ISO is flawless.


—-


Still no problems at 200 ISO.


—-


Some mild chromatic noise visible on this 400 ISO shot.


—-


Noise is definately more noticeable at 800 ISO, but the general level of detail is still very good.


—-


Image quality is reduced still further at 1600 ISO, but the image is still usable, and the grain of the noise is not too destructive.


—-


This is the full frame at 1600 ISO. As you can see it is quite presentable.
