A range of test shots are shown over the next three pages. Here, the full size image has been reduced for bandwidth purposes, and a crop taken from the original full resolution image has been placed below it in order for you to gain an appreciation of the overall quality. The following pages consist of resized images so that you can evaluate the overall exposure. For those with a dial-up connection, please be patient while the pages download.
Note: These ISO test shots were taken indoors using diffuse natural light, auto exposure and auto white balance.
1/25th sec, F3.8, ISO 50
At the very lowest ISO setting, the HD1 produces a nice clean noise-free image, although the over-sharpening is still evident.
1/50th sec, F3.8, ISO 100
At 100 ISO there is already a little visible image noise in the darker areas of this shot.
1/110th sec, F3.8, ISO 200
The image noise is progressively worse at 200 ISO, although the image is by no means bad.
1/220th sec, F3.8, ISO 400
At 400 ISO the image noise is now quite pronounced over the whole of the image, but most pronounced in the darker areas.
