”Here are some general test shots to help evaluate the camera’s overall image quality, including the zoom range of the lens. Some pictures may be clicked to download the full size original image.”
The wide-angle end of the zoom is equivalent to 37mm, a bit narrow by recent standards.
The 185mm-equivalent telephoto end is useful for bus spotters and private investigators.
Colour reproduction is excellent, with details even in bright highlights.
Despite its small sensor the 970 IS has good dynamic range.
Macro range is 2cm, but don’t use the AiAF feature at this range, because it will miss the target.
Correct exposure despite bright highlights.
