Panasonic S1R: Image Quality Gains at ISO 50, 100, 200 Plus ISO 50 in Multi-Shot High-Res Mode (Poppy by Window)
See my L-mount mirrorless wishlist.
When I shoot indoors or outdoors, I strive to achieve the best possible image quality. That means base ISO and an optimal ETTR exposure. But what of ISO 50 versus ISO 100—does it matter much? For that matter, is Multi-Shot High-Res mode worth the bother versus ISO 50? It would be easy to come to an erroneous conclusion for some average scene, but when it matters, it really matters. Namely in high dynamic range images, as here.
This page evaluates how image quality at ISO 50 compares to ISO 100 and ISO 200 as well as ISO 50 in Multi-Shot High-Res mode, showing compelling results that any Panasonic S1R user should be aware of.
Includes images up to full camera resolution plus crops at ISO 50, 100, 200, plus ISO 50 HighRes mode.
Panasonic S1R readers should read this page— worth the price of admission methinks.
