High ISO studio comparison

No self respecting compact camera is complete these days without a High Sensitivity mode, and the W80 is no exception, allowing you to manually select all the way up to ISO 3200. Below you will find studio comparisons between the W80's two highest sensitivity settings: ISO 1600 and ISO 3200.

As we see with pretty much all small sensor compacts, where ISO 800 is just about usable for social snaps, anything higher is approaching totally unusable. In low light it looks even worse than this, our well-lit studio.
