”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 is equivalent to 36mm, OK for snapshots not very wide compared to many other current compacts.
The other end of the zoom range is a useful 180mm, good for medium telephoto shots. Note that this shot was taken under auto ISO, which is set at 800.
Dynamic range could be better. Highlights are burned out and shadows are murky.
