”Here are some general test shots to help evaluate the camera’s overall image quality, including 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 37mm.
The telephoto end is equivalent to 111mm.
Flash exposure and frame coverage is good, with a range of an impressive 4.8m at wide angle.
The exposure system copes well with strong contrast, but the dynamic range is limited.
This is the same shot as above, but treated with the in-camera D-lighting feature.
