”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 36mm, about average for a standard 3x zoom compact.
Note the lack of contrast in this telephoto shot from the same location. Telephoto focal length is equivalent to 108mm. Please try to ignore the person smoking a cigarette in this photo, since it’s probably illegal to show such terrifying scenes on a public website.
Colour reproduction and white balance are none to brilliant either, although it defence it was a slightly overcast day.
The autofocus system is fast enough for spur-of-the-moment snapshots like this one.
