In some cases, the full size image has been reduced for bandwidth purposes, and a crop taken from the original full resolution image has been placed below it to show the overall image quality.

The wide-angle end is equivalent to 35mm, a little wider than average for a compact.
The telephoto end of the 6x zoom range is equivalent to 210mm, good for zooming in on distant details.
Colour reproduction is excellent, although this shot doesn’t really do it justice.
The sensor produces good dynamic range despite its small size, thanks to the Digic III processor.
