”A range of test shots are shown over the next two pages. Here, the full size image has been reduced for bandwidth purposes, and in some case a crop taken from the original full resolution image has been placed below it in order for you to gain an appreciation of the overall quality.”
Shooting without a flash in low light at 1600 ISO produces a nice image with good colour balance and almost zero noise. There aren’t many compact cameras that could have taken this shot, and all of them are by Fuji.
Using the flash in the same situation shows the quality of the metering, perfectly balancing the flash with the ambient light.
The wide-angle end of the zoom range is equivalent to 36mm, slightly wider than most compacts.
The telephoto end of the 3x zoom is equivalent to 108mm. This shot was taken from the same position as the one above.
