Colours straight from the camera are bright and punchy without displaying too much over-saturation.
Having a tilting touchscreen helps when trying to compose from awkward angles – you can tilt the screen to get a better view of the subject, while tapping the screen to set the autofocus point or fire off the shutter release can be useful if it's difficult to reach physical buttons.
The camera's panoramic mode is accessed through Smart Auto and does a good job of stitching together an ultra-wide image – there's not too much evidence of the joins, either.
At its widest point, the 9-27mm lens offers the equivalent of roughly 24mm on a full-frame camera, making it ideal for capturing wide angles of views and landscapes.
At the telephoto end of the optic, the 9-27mm kit lens offers roughly 72mm, making the range useful for the majority of shooting scenarios.
The camera's metering system can often do with a little exposure compensation dialled in to get a more balanced exposure.
The Picture Wizard allows you to make changes to settings such as contrast, and also includes a number of presets which you can use.
A few digital filters are available, but you can't shoot these in raw format.
