Is the Panasonic G3 or GH2 clean at base ISO?
Dec 24, 2011

Still trying to work around the high level of noise on my E-PM1 at base ISO.

So a question: is the Panasonic G3 or GH2 actually clean at base ISO, i.e. if you turn off chroma and luma NR, are uniform regions like blue skies actually uniform in texture and color when viewed at 100%, or are the all blotchy like with the E-PM1?


P.S. Example from the E-PM1 (ISO 200, ACR defaults, NR off):
