”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 X70’s 26mm wide angle is great for cramming in lots of scenery.
The telephoto end is equivalent to a massive 624mm.
The exposure system seldom burns out highlights, but the shadows lack detail. Compare this shot with the Ricoh CX1 that I reviewed last week.
Colour rendition is well balanced and natural.
The huge telephoto lens is surprisingly usable even hand-held. This was shot at 1/100th of a second.
The X70 is a good general purpose camera, but not without its flaws.
