NOISE: Long exposures are prone to noise in shadow and midtone areas, even at the base ISO.
BURNOUT: High contrast scenes can pose issues with highlights burning out easily.
METER: Scenes with even contrast are generally metered accurately with Segment
LOW LIGHT: Low light performance is up with the best compact cameras, but cannot compete with larger sensor cameras, due to noise and slow autofocus.
COLOURFUL: Colours are normally reproduced quite vividly using default settings.
HDR: The Auto HDR feature is useful for contrasty scenes, but images could benefit from a little adjustment in image editing software afterwards.
BLUR CONTROL: The small sensor means it can be difficult to blur backgrounds. The Blur Control feature does a decent job of creating a shallow depth of field effect, but doesn't always get the effect right.
DETAIL: Levels of detail are good when compared to other compact cameras.
