The 28mm wide-angle is good for large groups or panoramic landscapes.
The 105mm telephoto end is about average for an ultra-compact camera.
Colour reproduction is smooth and natural.
With the iContrast function turned off shadows are murky and highlights are burned out.
Turning on the iContrast helps with the shadow detail but doesn’t do much for the highlights.
