ISO Image Quality-FZ1000 vs GH4

1. FZ1000-ISO 6400

2. FZ1000-ISO12800

3. GH4 ISO 12800

I happen to have a GH4 in the house so I have been comparing image quality of the GH4 and FZ1000 at all ISO settings. I used a 14-140mm f3.5-5.6 on the GH4, a good lens.

My findings : RAW files, converted in the newly released Photoshop Camera Raw 8.6:

The FZ1000 achieves slightly better detail resolution at all ISO settings up to 12800.

The GH4 images have one stop less noise in the range ISO 200-3200.

At very high ISO settings around ISO 12800 the FZ1000 is only about half a stop worse than the GH4.

These comparisons are true of RAW files straight out of PsCR or after processing to best result.
