BLOWN HIGHLIGHTS: In Program mode, colours are subdued and exposures are generally reliable, although the highlights in this image have blown.
MACRO: The Olympus VG-170 has a minimum focus distance of 5cm. Although it sometimes hunts for focus at macro distances, it focused perfectly on this flower.
NOISY BIRD: Although this scene was quite bright, the narrow aperture necessitated use of the flash and ISO 500, which has produced visible noise.
POP ART: The Pop Art filter nicely saturates colours compared to the dull colours seen in Program mode.
3D MODE: The 3D photo mode can produce convincing three dimensional images in conjunction with 3D glasses.
PIN HOLE: The pin hole mode creates retro-style images with attractive hues and a visible vignette.
LOST DETAIL: Even at ISO 200 in daylight, image quality is poor when viewed at full size. Fine detail is lost although colours remain accurate.
