”A range of test shots are shown over the next two pages. Here, the full size image has been reduced for bandwidth purposes, and in some case 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.”
With a wide-angle end equivalent to 35mm the S730 is wider than some 3x zoom compacts.
The telephoto end of the zoom is equivalent to 105mm.
The S730 copes fairly well with high contrast shots. There’s plenty of shadow detail here.
The shadows are a bit noisy, but there’s almost no purple fringing.
