I can appreciate what you are trying to show. Is this m4/3
sensor from Olympus? However, note that to me, an ISO of
only 4,000 is like shooting in bright sunshine. I am in a gym
at ISO values of 18,000 to 25,600 so I ask you to do me a
favor and take a shot in low light where the ISO is 25,600
and then let me see how the sensor performs. I would a
ppreciate the favor because one day, I may need the weight
The ISO 4000 image was from Lumix GM5, approx 2012 tech.
But for just this once "your wish is my command" ... so here
is ISO 12800 from a Lumix GX7 ... also approx 2012 tech but
thaz what I have with me. I'm online in bar and it's Saturday
night, so a fine opportunity for a 12800 test shot in shiddy
lighting. Don't ask me about the noise settings in the menus
as I'm a set it and forget type, menu-wise. I assume I prolly
maxed the high ISO clean up, since I shoot in shiddy light all
So these are basically SOOC resized for the forum. I also set
my "picture style" for muted color & contrast as my personal
defaults, to catch as much data as possible, thus you're also
seeing a very routine color & contrast touch up, required for
ALL my images to appear presentable.
The GX7 is three models behind current, which would be the
GX9 but I don't have one of those. Anywho, this is a case of
"dance with who brung ya". The GX7 was in the car tonight.
Enjoy the noise :-)
