Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX9V - Sample Images: ISO Performance Review


Sony HX9V iso 100
ISO 100 appears slightly grainier than ISO 200

Sony HX9V iso 200
ISO 200 is sharp and noise-free

Sony HX9V iso 400
Even when viewed at 100% ISO 400 looks sharp and detailed with minimal noise

Sony HX9V iso 800
However, as is often the case with compact sensors, ISO 800 is the tipping point where noise becomes visible

Sony HX9V iso 1600
Image noise at ISO 1600, by contrast, is very well controlled

Sony HX9V iso 3200
Alas, by ISO 3200 the image has degraded with soft edges and less detail
