”Here are some general test shots to help evaluate the camera’s overall image quality, including dynamic range, colour rendition and the zoom range of the lens. Some pictures may be clicked to download the full size original image. ”


The A230 copes well in low light. This was shot at 400 ISO, 1/30th of a second.


400 ISO, f/3.5, 1/20th of a second.


Colour rendition is very natural in the Standard colour mode.


The A230 is good for general snapshot photography, but adds enough creative potential to make it more interesting.
