”Here are some general test shots to help evaluate the camera’s overall image quality, including dynamic range, colour rendition and the zoom range of the lens. Some pictures may be clicked to download the full size original image. ”
The wide angle end of the zoom range is equivalent to 37mm, not very wide by recent standards.
The telephoto end is more useful, equivalent to 185mm.
Colour reproduction is excellent, with plenty of detail even in bright yellows and reds.
Dynamic range isn’t too bad compared to others in its class, although more shadow detail would be better.
”I’ll try to add some action shots using the FC100’s high-speed capabilities afte a mountain-biking session this weekend.”
