”Here are some general test shots to help evaluate the camera’s overall image quality, including dynamic range, colour rendition and the zoom range of the lens. Some pictures may be clicked to download the full size original image. ”
The wide angle setting is equivalent to 37mm, barely wide enough to get the whole Custom House in the frame.
The long end is equivalent to 185mm, a useful short telephoto.
The automatic I-Contrast feature boosts shadow detail in difficult lighting conditions.
Colour rendition is good, but it does have problems with skin tones.
The AF system is very quick in good light.
The image stabilisation is fantastic. This was shot hand held at full zoom at 1/8th of a second.
