Outdoor Crops

Images below are all unmodified 100% crops from their respective cameras. ISO was set on each the camera but white-balance was on automatic. Since the F30 and F10 do not have fully-manual mode, various scene modes had to be used until a satisfactory exposure was obtained. This was a trial-and-error process which demonstrates the difficulty in using a point-and-shoot camera for low-light photography. The Canon Powershot A700, on the other hand, took perfect exposures for each picture without any fiddling due to its fully manual mode. Here are crops comparing the Fuji Finepix F30 against the Canon Powershot A700 and Fuji Finepix F10.

The same conclusions are visible here than in the day crops, except that noise from the A700 is more pronounced in low-light. Starting at ISO 400, the A700 cannot compete and its noise starts destroying details. The F30 only starts noticeable loosing detail at ISO 1600. Even the excellent F10 seems to have one stop more noise than the F30 starting at ISO 800.

In low-light, the amazing ISO 3200 setting unfortunately could produce a clean 5x7 print, as it did with the day shot, although the subject was still recognizable.
