Pentax Optio A30 - Test Shots – Exposure Evaluation



View All

”A range of test shots are shown over the next two pages. Here, the full size image has been reduced for bandwidth purposes, and in some case a crop taken from the original full resolution image has been placed below it in order for you to gain an appreciation of the overall quality.”


Colour rendition is perfect despite the cloudy weather.


Exposure metering is also spot on. Spot. Metering. Geddit?


Flash range is an impressive 7.1 metres at wide angle, and frame coverage is superb.


If you thought I was kidding about the frame composite mode, hopefully these beautiful flowers will convince you otherwise.
