Shot at maximum zoom, this is one of Britain’s Olympic wind-surfing team. She was moving very fast crossing the finish line, but the S5’s AF system caught the shot perfectly.
Colour rendition and detail are first rate at 80 ISO.
The wide-angle end of the zoom range is equivalent to 36mm.
The telephoto end is equivalent to 432mm, great for picking out details.
