The wide-angle end of the zoom is equivalent to 38mm, not really wide enough for panorama shots.
The telephoto end is equivalent to 114mm, about average for this class of camera.
Colour reproduction and exposure metering are very good.
Even without the dynamic range expander function, shadow and highlight detail are good in this high-contrast shot.
Low-light focusing and flash range are both impressive for such a small and low-priced camera.
