In a review, they are testing for ISO noise. Plain and simple. My own "rule" is to use the lowest ISO needed for a shot.

different system, different ways of making it work.

depending on the post process, the noise introduced could easily be minimized by noise-cleaning softwares which gives them extra leeway over users who dont use such techniques.

Yes.

rule of thumb is employ the lowest iso possible in broad daylight, unless they trying to o achieve a certain result by compensating for higher shutter or wider aperture..they will pump up the iso...

sometimes they grab shots of other things while they are looking to shoot some things.

for example, i will set my street iso at iso400/800..

and then sometimes i will be lazy to change it back to iso100..... after all, these days, IQ at iso400 is still pretty good!
