Did you take any photos of people with the flash on?

Since the flash and lens are at the same height and so close to each other I'd worry that red eye would be a BIG problem with this camera...

Questions

It would be useful to know the amount of shots you can expect from a full charge, with and without the GPS being switched on.

How long can it maintain 3.7fps for?

“3D shooting mode (useful only if you own a compatible TV)”

Does this mean with a 3D TV or just with a Panasonic 3D TV?

Impressive ISO results up to 800 with 1600 being good for emergency. Is it possible to set an ISO range limit with this camera?

Suggestions for improvements

Is it possible to add shot details to your photos? i.e. iso, aperture, shutter speed?

Different subject for iso tests

The ISO crop photos seems much better at demonstrating the noise. Nice move.

@CK - Those crops were available before. When you click to enlarge you can then choose any point in the photo to view closer as well as the overall shot. That feature is very good but the subject chosen isn't as there is no part which shows us how fine detail is affected by iso increases.

@joose - The car placement is different, and the cropped portion is also different. Now light and shadow on the crops (pardon my lack of specialist vocabulary) can easily be seen, for quick and direct comparison on one page. Previous crops also seem to be out-of-focus, but I can be wrong on this.

Yeah I know the enlarged photos were present in the past and you may prefer to opening the images one by one, but I'm not commenting on something that didn't change (much).

I have a TS3. The time to write the full size jpg is reduced to about 1 sec by the use of a high speed card like:
