NB – ISO Performance sample images to follow shortly.
Despite the high-contrast scene, the P310 balances shadows and highlights well.
1/1000 sec @ f/2.8, ISO 100
The 16MP sensor is capable of rendering fine detail well.
1/400 sec @ f/5.5, ISO 100
Once again, shadows and highlights are well-balanced, with fine detail displayed well.
1/1250 sec @ f/3.2, ISO 100
An instance of the P310’s white balance struggling, producing an image on the cold end of the spectrum.
1/200 sec @ f/4, ISO 100
In this case the metering was culpable, underexposing the image a touch, although this did result in a rich tone and colour in the sky.
1/1250 sec @ f/4, ISO 100
The P310’s maximum aperture of f/1.8 opens up creative possibilities.
1/400 sec @ f/2.6, ISO 100
