This shot was taken at ISO 12,800 using the JPEG-only Multi frame noise reduction mode, chroma noise has been controlled well with just slight loss of detail in some areas.

Straight from the camera images have lots of detail and vibrant, but not excessively saturated, colours. This ISO 100 image was shot using the auto white balance and the exposure settings suggested by Multi Segment metering.

We like the results from using the Black & White Creative Style, especially when the contrast is pushed to its maximum setting. You can use the Creative Styles when shooting raw and JPEG files to produce a colour and a monochrome version.

Using the Daylight white balance setting produced a pleasantly warm, but very natural result with this scene shot under a canopy on a bright sunny day.

The tilting screen is especially useful when shooting still life scenes, because you can set up the subject and check composition and so on, without having to stoop to peep through the viewfinder.

Sony's Sweep Panorama mode can be very good, but a few that we made had a band like the one visible on the far left of this image.
