Indoor Crops

Below are sample crops from an indoor photograph taken at each of the Panasonic DMC-FZ70's ISO settings. A crop from the Canon Powershot SX50 HS
Canon Powershot SX50 HS
at the same ISO setting is shown next to each one of the FZ70.

Images below are all unmodified 100% crops from their respective cameras taken at the highest quality setting. ISO was set on camera, everything else was left on automatic.

These crops help determine which ISO settings can be acceptably used. As noise increases, most digital cameras compensate with noise reduction which introduces softness. The result is that, while you can partly reduce noise at the expense of details, the maximum acceptable print size gets smaller as ISO is increased. The point at which a print become unacceptably noisy is a matter of personal taste.
