Why you can trust TechRadar We spend hours testing every product or service we review, so you can be sure you’re buying the best. Find out more about how we test.

We shoot a specially designed chart in carefully controlled conditions and the resulting images are analysed using DXO Analyzer software to generate the data to produce the graphs below.

A high signal to noise ratio (SNR) indicates a cleaner and better quality image.

For more more details on how to interpret our test data, check out our full explanation of our noise and dynamic range tests.

JPEG Signal to Noise Ratio

Panasonic FS35 review: JPEG signal to noise ratio

JPEG images from the Panasonic FS 35 show that it compares well against the Nikon Coolpix S6200and Canon PowerShot A3200 IS. The results also show that noise is handled well across the entire sensitivity range.

JPEG dynamic range

Panasonic FS35 review: JPEG dynamic range

This chart shows that the Panasonic FS 35 compares closely with the Canon PowerShot A3200 IS for dynamic range results across the sensitivity range. These show that at all sensitivities a good tonal graduation can be captured in both the shadows and highlight areas of an image.

Our analysis shows that the Panasonic FS35's results compare well against the comparison cameras for dynamic range. The signal to noise ratio results show that, although beaten across the greater part of the sensitivity range by the Nikon S6200 and Samsung PL120, it still produces respectable results that keep noise in check.
