Pentax Optio M60 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. ”

The full frame at 64 ISO, the minimum setting.

Noise is clearly visible at 200 ISO, but still no major problems.

Significant levels of noise at 800 ISO, but still plenty of detail.
