Pentax Optio P70 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. ”

This is the full frame at minimum ISO. It is under-exposed slightly due to the limited shutter speed in program mode.

There is a slight haze of noise at 64 ISO, but the overall level of detail is good, and colours are accurate.

Exposure is correct at 100 ISO, and the noise levels are about the same.

Not much difference at 200 ISO.

There is some colour distortion at 400 ISO, but this would still make a good print.

Noise is starting to become a problem at 800 ISO, but overall quality is still pretty good.

Lots of noise now at 1600 ISO, but exposure and colour are still quite good.

3200 ISO is available, but limited to 5MP. Image quality is pretty terrible though.
