There really isn’t very much to say about these files.  We grabbed a friend, went out to the gulch, and shot some images.  We wanted to see what the new camera would do in natural light and at the new specifications. Enjoy!

What is the usable ISO range for me and my needs?

If you wanted to just choose one image to download then choose this one.  This is a 100% crop of the above thumbnail at each ISO.  Capture One 9 was used at default noise settings decided by the manufacturer for the IQ3 100mp system.  Its only 7mb and it is a great way to view the test.

If you want to play with more files at each ISO, then here are the raws.  You will need Capture One 9.0 at a minimum to open these files and look at them properly.  LR, PS, or any other processing software is not ever recommended for raw processing by Capture Integration.  We highly recommend using the manufacturer’s raw processor designed for this sensor and its nuances.
