This page consists of resized images (to Adobe ImageReady jpg quality 50) in order for you to evaluate the overall exposure.
The wide end of the zoom range is equivalent to 35mm on a 135 camera, good for capturing wide scenes.
The 5x optical zoom is good for picking out details in an image, but the metering system has seriously under exposed the shot.
The bright yellow highlights in this picture have burned out and lack detail because of over exposure.
This average outdoor shot has good colour balance and exposure, although the yellow highlights lack detail.
Although it was shot on the sports setting, the camera only selected a shutter speed of 1/125 for this image, resulting in motion blur. We can also see some strong purple fringing in the full res crop out (inset).
