It would be nice if the preview samples included a hand-held night or low light shot or two. That need not mean pictures of a black cat at night in a cave, but perhaps of a person indoors at night with a single incandescent lamp. That way, we'd see how a camera handles WB, flare, contrast, and low light too.
Some of the samples where shot indoors with available light, or under cloudy skies, but the available light appears to have been moderate to good.
Well, #24 (P1000431) is like that. ISO 6400 is bad, but honestly even better than I expected from the small portion of the tiny sensor it was taken with.
Camera with such bright lens does not really need to use ISO6400 (the same could have been shot with ISO 1600 and 1/25, not mentioning wider aperture). In my experience ISO 1000 is acceptable maximum for this sensor size.
ISO1000? Maybe on the beach and full sun. Take a look at the picture with a sitting man (P1000409). Such a strong posprocessing. I suppose by the noise.But I agree, that the ISO6400 is not a good idea on the small sensor as this camera have.
Is any compact camera in this class any good at ISO 6400? You have to remember that most compact cameras would be using ISO 12,800 or 1/50th of a second with ISO 6400. Both of those options are not acceptable.
