BenQ GH700 Review - Sample Images: General Images Review


The GH700 is capable of producing pleasing results in good light, although some vignetting is visible.
1/400sec @ f/9.6, 34mm, ISO 160, AWB

At medium telephoto settings the GH700 delivers acceptable results.
1/125sec @ f/5.4, 225mm, ISO 200, AWB

However, used at its telephoto extremes the GH700 tends to produce soft results.
1/200sec @ f/5.8, 528mm, ISO 160, AWB

At its wideangle setting, barrel distortion is noticeable.
1/160sec @ f/3.1, 25mm, ISO 160, AWB

The GH700 works well in  flat, even light.
1/40sec @ f/3.3, 25mm, ISO 160, AWB

Faced with low, raking sunlight the GH700 has produced an image with good contrast and tonality.
1/1000sec @ f3.1, 25mm, ISO 160, AWB

The HDR option opens up shadow areas but doesn’t look particularly natural. And, again, vignetting is a potential problem.
