High ISO Studio tests

Below you will find a studio comparison between the Samsung NV10 at ISO 800 and ISO 1000.

Studio scene comparison (@ ISO 800 / ISO 1000)  

  • Samsung NV10: Manual mode, ISO 800, Default Image Parameters,
    Manual white balance, +0.7 EV compensation.

  • Samsung NV10: Manual mode, ISO 1000, Default Image Parameters,
    Manual white balance, +0.7 EV compensation, ND4 Neutral Density filter (2 stops).
  • Lighting: Daylight simulation, >98% CRI

Note: the ISO 1000 studio shot was taken with an ND4 (2 stop) filter attached to the lens.

More of the same really, with the extra half stop to ISO 1000 really bringing on the noise. Obviously the quality is pretty poor, but at least Samsung hasn't used such excessive noise reduction that all detail has been lost; for a very small print the ISO 800 output would be a useful 'last resort' if you had no other options, but let's be honest; high ISO on a 10MP this small doesn't really work, does it?
