Colour rendition and exposure are good, one of the E30’s few good points.


Shooting into the light shows up low dynamic range. The shot lacks shadow detail and has burned-out highlights.


The E30’s lens has a wide end equivalent to 36mm, wider than some rivals, but still not very wide at all.


The telephoto end is equivalent to 108mm, about average for a 3x zoom.
