Default Olympus C-8080WZs Noise Levels

What is everyone?s opinion on how the Olympus C-8080WZ?s noise levels compare to the competing 8 MP cameras at different ISO settings? I ranked them in the order that I thought with 1 being the best and 5 Being the worst. I have looked at them so much that it literally hazes the decision. What do you think?

1) Olympus C-8080WZ
2) Nikon 8700
3) Sony F828
4) Canon Powershot Pro 1
5) Konica Minolta DiMAGE A2

Thanks,

Kevin

Default Take a look at ISO

Keep in mind your first two go down to ISO 50 while the others are at a minimum ISO 100. Your going to get noise with a higher ISO. How often are you going to go above ISO 50?, I would think quite often. How does ISO at 100 on the first two compare to the last ones? Another thing to look at is the softness of the pictures. Software may be softening up the images more on different cameras. I haven't looked that close to see if that is the case.

While at a first glance the first two might appear to be the best ones however you may want to do a side by side at the same ISO and view the images at 100% to see if one is softer than the other.
The 8080 does appear to capture some great photos and the purple fringe seems to be less than the others.

Thanks HST,

All very good points. What I did was compare the images from all the 8 MP cameras I listed at the following ISO settings 100, 200, 400. I did not view at 100%. Was a tough choice that is why I am asking others opinions.

at the moment, I think the best is c-8080 between the eight mp. cameras.

Phill Askey loves a lot this camera.
