The shots have good exposure and color reproduction. There is no red-eye effect shown in the portraits although the skin tones are not really impressive. Even under the water, the photos have good sharpness and colors.

Lens performance

Sample photos

Sample photos

Good level of detail is what has been recorded in the center of the frame, although it is a little softer than that towards the edges and corners, but this is quite typical for cameras that have the internal lens. Purple fringing is well control and kept at the minimum level in the contrast area. The minimum focus length of this lens is 3 cm, which enables macro shooting.

ISO noise level

ISO sample photos

ISO sample photos

The lowest noise levels are recorded at ISO 100 and 200, and a very slight reduction shown in image quality at ISO400. At ISO800, some details are lost which makes the images become a little softer, but this noise level becomes significant at ISO1600. At ISO3200, the image quality is really bad with a considerable loss of details. When ISO reaches 6400, we witness an extremely bad image quality. Therefore two highest ISO levels should be better avoided.

White balance

Under the tungsten light in your studio, shooting with the Auto White Balance gives us slightly orange shots, and if the tungsten preset is used, the result is much better. Under fluorescent light, the performance of AWB is perfect and the use of fluorescent produces shots with slight magenta color.

Panoramic mode

The panoramic pictures are a lot detailed and well stitched together, with a consistent exposure throughout.
