Summary

Our Score:

9

Over the next few pages we show a range of test shots. On this page the full size image at the minimum and maximum ISO settings have been reduced to let you see the full image, and a series of full resolution crops have taken from original images at a range of ISO settings to show the overall image quality. These pictures were taken indoors using shaded natural light.

----

This is the full frame at the minimum ISO setting of 160.

----

The image quality at 160 ISO is excellent, with good colour gradation and fine detail.

----

Not much difference at 200 ISO, unsurprisingly.

----

Slightly more noise at 400 ISO, but the image is perfectly printable.

----

Quite a bit more noise at 800 ISO, but the overall quality is still pretty good.

----

Image quality is greatly reduced in high ISO mode, at 1600 ISO.

----

This is the full frame at 1600 ISO.

It's got an unusually fast lens for a compact, very tempting. I'm looking to get a new compact camera this summer, it's getting harder & harder to choose!! HX-5, WX-1, TZ10, CX3 - Arggh!!!

This camera is indeed very well featured, but as for the Image Quality rating should have been 6 or 7 because the pictures taken with this camera is inconsistent.





ChrisC: You should check out Panasonic ZR3. It's an all-rounder in terms of features, camera size, image quality, speed, etc.

Wonder what would happen if you did a panorama pan shot while following a passing car/person/bicycle. Could be interesting!
