Gold cross, Panagia Tourliani Monastery, Mykonos

By MentorRon
This was a very small room, with not much space for a shipload of tourists. Artifacts and religious objects were clustered very close together because of the room size. Difficult to keep photos from looking "cluttered". The paintings really need a good professional cleaning to reveal their original colours. Auto ISO800

Surprising that your small point and shoot Fuji managed to handle ISO 800 so well. Did you process out any noise or distortion? Ours cannot make much beyond 200 to 400. Lovely capture of the image and nice narration. Thank you for taking us on your vacation.GrinGrinGrin

No, I don't do any noise/distortion processing for images I upload from this second-hand $7 Cdn. (4 Pounds Sterling) camera.
I simply do minor crops or rotations, to eliminate items at edges of frame or to straighten horizons.
I always note what I have done in my comments.
With this camera, results are acceptable up to and including ISO800. Possibly due to the 1/1.6" CCD.
Most P'n'Ss have a 1/2.3" (smaller) CCD. The AREA of these 2 CCDs are: 1/2.3" = 28 sq mm: 1/1.6" = 48.5 sq mm.
Note you cannot see any photos displayed here at 100% (actual) size if taken at maximum camera resolution..

If I needed to use ISO1600, I would reduce grain using the free Neat Image V8 program at it's default settings.

Here is a Web camera review page that has samples of F100fd images taken at all the available ISOs, with 100% crops.

You can click on those 100% crops to see the full sized photos. You could also download them and run them through N.I.V8 to see the effect. Works for me Wink

Remember the AREA of a CCD/CMOS is equivalent to film negative sizes, and also contributes greatly to light gathering capability.
That's why Full Frame SLRs create such awesome photos. Remember APS-C is 372 sq mm and 35mm was 864 sq mm !!!

I have upload to My Portfolio an image of 2 coffee and cola cups by a green basket I took indoors at ISO1600 in daytime when I first got and was testing this camera at home (it was image number 10 Wink
You can judge the image quality for yourselves. I assume you can't see it until I move it using my daily quota of 1 Wink
I actually find that ISO1600 is only a problem in darkness, not daylight.
