Canon PowerShot SX280 HS Low Light Sample Images

Our photography specialists took the Canon PowerShot SX280 to task in this low light image test. Notice how even at 800 ISO, there isn’t a great deal of noise considering the low lighting situation. Cameras that preform well in low light are especially good for parties, as good light is often hard to find in a restaurant, bar, club or hall.

Canon PowerShot ELPH 130 IS

Check out these low light image samples from the Canon PowerShot ELPH 130 IS. Notice how sharp the images are with ISO 400! The ELPH series are a great companion to a Canon DSLR for more “everyday” shooting. Its compact and light weight design make it a breeze to always have the camera with you and never miss a moment.

Olympus TG-2 Low Light Sample Images

Here are low light sample images taken with the Olympus TG-2, Olympus’ flagship waterproof (to 50 feet), shockproof, crushproof and dustproof digital camera.

With an ISO range of 100 to 6400, the 12MP TG-2 performs very well through ISO 1600.

See below for photo parameters.

Photo parameters:  All images taken at largest JPEG setting, auto white balance, center focus, without flash and on a tripod using 2 second self-timer.  All images cropped approximately 10% for alignment purposes and file sizes slightly reduced for comparison purposes.

Olympus Stylus SH-50 Low Light Sample Images

The Olympus Stylus SH-50 is an advanced compact point and shoot that allows for more manual control than most cameras at this size.  The SH-50 also performs beautifully in low light, with limited noise through ISO 800 and solid performance through 1600 ISO.  In a pinch, you can even shoot at the SH-50’s passable ISO 3200, nearly 5 full stops faster (more sensitive) than at the camera’s lowest ISO 125 setting.  ISO 6400, the SH-50’s max ISO, is noticeably noisy but still much better than we were only two or three years ago–and even quite good, as the shots below attest.

Parameters:  All photos were shot on a tripod at a 35mm equivalent of approximately 50mm and at an aperture of f/4.1.  We then cropped the images by 25% and reduced the image size to 16 inches wide by approximately 10 inches high, maintaining a native resolution of 180 pixels / inch.
