1/12th, f/4.8, ISO 64

At the lowest ISO setting the image is, as one should expect, clear and noise free.

—-

1/15th, f/4.8, ISO 100

Just 1/3rd of a stop faster at 100 ISO the image is still completely noise free.

—-

1/30th, f/4.8, ISO 200

At 200 ISO the image is noise free, but there is some evidence of noise reduction at work.

—-

1/60th, f/4.8, ISO 400

At 400 ISO there is some detail reduction due to noise reduction, and just a faint speckling of noise. The contrast level is lower too.

1/125th, f/4.8, ISO 800

At 800 ISO there is significant loss of fine detail and the image looks slightly soft, but is relatively noise free and would print well.

—-

1/250th, f/4.8, ISO 1600

At the maximum ISO setting there is noise right across the image, but it is smooth and well controlled with little colour distortion. This image is quite usable.
