”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 range is equivalent to 38mm, a bit longer than average.
The telephoto end of the 3.4x zoom is equivalent to 162mm.
Colour rendition is pretty good, but the destructive compression has reduced the detail in saturated areas.
The A470 is a good camera for general snapshots.
The lack of a good wide angle setting is a bit restrictive.
