View All

”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. ”


Colour reproduction is a bit over-saturated in standard JPEG mode…


…but setting the Natural pre-set is less garish.


Mucking about with Raw conversion yeilds some high-quality results.


Contrast, sharpness and detail are excellent.


Some of the built-in filters and effects are a bit hit-or-miss.
