f30zoom vs f200exr (exr sn) on iso800 and above

1st of all, "exr sn" of f200exr produces 6mp and f30zoom is a 6mp camera, it is fair to compare them ;).

f200exr iso 800 exr sn (6mp):


f30zoom iso 800 (6mp):


take a look at the black cloth's patterns on the left, u will notice that f200exr blurred the patterns until virtually non existant but f30zoom retain it although a bit softer than its iso 100.

f200exr iso 1600 exr sn (6mp):


f30zoom iso 1600 (6mp):


this time u will notice that f200exr will "makes" the black cloth totally black without any patterns but f30zoom still retains a rather soft but visible patterns on the black cloth.

there are stronger noise reduction evidence on the f30zoom compared to its lower isos. but based on the above findings, it still produces better details compared to the f200exr which has less noise reduction and with "exr sn".

correct me if i'm wrong, my assumption is, the black cloth can be somehow "used" to represent dark areas. if one is to be picky about low light details, f30zoom is a better choice compared to f200exr.

well, of course, f200exr has much better features like dr 800%, etc, but i'm just pointing out that f30zoom still fares better at high isos fyi, i didn't own a f30zoom (i wish i did!) and was eager to buy f200exr but bumped into imaging-resource.com and hope to share with u all on my findings.

if anyone interested, shall take a look at lx3 samples at imaging-resource, lx3 does very well on the black cloth's patterns too:
