”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 wide angle end is equivalent to 26mm, wider than most comparable cameras. Please note that this was shot on the medium quality setting. File size 1.8MB.
The telephoto end is equivalent to a massive 676mm. This was shot from the same spot as the picture above, also on medium quality. File size 1.8MB.
Dynamic range in standard mode is pretty poor, with no shadow detail.
With the D-Range booster activated there is more shadow and highlight detail.
Colour rendition is bright and vivid.
Do not underestimate the power of the 1cm macro feature.
The handy time travel feature is useful for amateur archaeologists, or if you’re running late for a train.
