A range of test shots are shown over the next three pages. Here, the full size image has been reduced for bandwidth purposes, and 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. The following pages consist of resized images so that you can evaluate the overall exposure. For those with a dial-up connection, please be patient while the pages downloads.
The relative lack of image noise is the only good thing about this picture. This was taken on the Auto ISO setting. The actual figure is probably around 50 ISO.
At 100 ISO, the only other setting, there is still no image noise. However there are burned out highlights, featureless shadows and lousy colour rendition.
At normal zoom, this shot still lacks detail and is also over-exposed, but on the whole it’s not too bad for a £60 camera.
At the maximum 4x digital zoom, the picture is horrible in far too many ways to list. Just look at it. Urgh!
