The images below are reduced in size, but highlight the general ability of the camera in varying conditions.
”’In macro mode the AF system had no problem locking onto this plant, even though it was swaying in a slight breeze.”’
”’The lens is equivalent to a 36-108mm on a film camera, so it’s not ideal for landscape work, however it is nice and sharp even into the corners at wide angle.”’
”’Shot at 200 ISO this low-light shot clearly demonstrates the limitations of the M417. It has severe image noise right across the frame, especially in the darker areas.”’
