I recently tried (for the first time in my life, by the way) to do a little test to compare the ISO noise of Samsung NX100 and Samsung NX200. An attempt has been criticized because the readers felt the target is not very good. I promised to reform, and now – ready to report on the second pass, obviously – more successful.
Shooting conditions: incandescent lamp, the lens is 30 / 2, aperture 5.6. White Balance set to Color Temperature 5500K (keep in mind that colors are different in cameras). Development in Samsung Raw Converter with default settings.
- 1/20 – ISO 100
- 1/40 – ISO 200
- 1/80 – ISO 400
- 1/160 – ISO 800
- 1/320 – ISO 1600
- 1/640 – ISO 3200
- 1/1250 – ISO 6400
- 1/2500 – ISO 12800
I am pleased with the results. If we consider both the test: the old and new, it is possible to obtain reliable conclusions.
Here is the result of the test:
If you want to consider the results in more detail, you can download it here in the PNG (19mb).
My conclusion remains the same: we have a definite increase in one stop. ISO 1600 has become fully operational, and ISO 3200 fully working with a good noise suppressors.
