Noise

Amateur Photographer - - Testbench -

Our de­tailed in­spec­tion of raw files cap­tured through the sen­si­tiv­ity range dis­played clean noise-free re­sults be­tween ISO 100 and 800. When you push to ISO 1600 and in­spect im­ages closely you be­gin to see lu­mi­nance noise ap­pear­ing, which be­comes more ob­vi­ous when you push to ISO 3200 and ISO 6400. ISO 3200 is very us­able and so is ISO 6400 with a lit­tle noise re­duc­tion ap­plied. Users will find that they can push to ISO 12,800 too, but this is the up­per limit of where you’ll want to push to on a reg­u­lar ba­sis. Colour sat­u­ra­tion re­mains high up to ISO 25,600. The ex­tended H1 (ISO 51,200) and H2 (ISO 102,400) set­tings should be avoided at all costs.
