Noise

Amateur Photographer - - Camera Test Testbench -

A close study of our test im­ages re­vealed a very im­pres­sive set of re­sults, with shots taken at ISO 1600 be­ing al­most as flaw­less as those cap­tured at ISO 100. In­spect files at high mag­ni­fi­ca­tion and you’ll no­tice fine de­tail starts to be af­fected by an in­creased level of noise at ISO 3200 and ISO 6400, but both these set­tings yield very us­able re­sults and shouldn’t be shied away from when pre­sented by a low-light sit­u­a­tion. If you’re happy to apply a lit­tle noise re­duc­tion in post, ac­cept­able re­sults can also be achieved at ISO 12,800 and even ISO 25,600 at a push. The Z 6’s ex­tended ISO 102,400 and ISO 204,800 set­tings should be avoided though.
