Sony RX100 VII – Lab Testing

In this article I will go over the Sony RX100 VII Lab Testing I recently did for those pixel peepers out there like myself. High ISO Testing, lens zoom range testing, minimum focus distance testing, lens distortion, sharpness, and color will also be on display in these sample photos for your detailed scrutiny.

I’m still working on the my full highly detailed Sony RX100 VII Review, so stay tuned for that and many other articles including several tutorials.

RX100 VII – ISO Testing

These Sony RX100 VII ISO test photos were all taken in raw quality so you can see exactly what the 1″ Exmor RS Sensor produces in the Sony RX100 VII.

Here is the full scene @ ISO 100 and ISO 12800 and below that are the 100% Crops. Also, in these ISO sample photos you can see the lens does suffer from a little distortion when looking at the horizontal lines towards the top of the scene. It’s not to bad though and in the real world and won’t cause much of a problem unless you are shooting bricks and things like that and need perfect lines at close range. This can also be easily corrected in a program like Adobe Lightroom as well.
