”’(centre)Auto-focus wouldn’t work for this low-light shot, but slightly perturbing is the evidence of a green cast in the corners of the frame.(/centre)”’
”’(centre)There are no in-camera fripperies such as dynamic range enhancement. Metering and processing tends to deepen shadows and clip highlights, giving a punchy look though this high-contrast scene is an extreme example.(/centre)”’
”’(centre)Macro shooting isn’t possible, but close-ups from 20cm or so can still be impressive.(/centre)”’
