Dynamic Range

With no raw image recording on the HX90V we’ve looked at JPEG files in our Applied Imaging tests. Due to noise reduction the numbers are artificially high, and can’t be compared to other cameras. But they do show that image quality falls very rapidly at settings higher than ISO 800.

    It’d be great to see some HX90V sample images. I almost bought the camera when I’ve seen a few test images that show a lot of noise even at the lowest ISO settings. Any experience yet? What is your opinion about the image quality of the Sony HX90V? Thanks in advance, Zoltan
