To start off with the performance of the camera, one will have to handle this with both hands as it is larger than most compact cameras available. One would need to use the neck strap as well, as the camera weighs 534g, which will be quite strenuous for shooting images at long stretches, especially on hikes or other trips where the camera cannot be placed down. The location of the buttons is good and one can easily reach controls on either side without any hassle.
We shot images outdoors, indoors as well as in a closed environment to test the performance of the camera. We were left with being more than impressed. Shooting images outdoors, we could make out the detail in each capture clearly and colours appeared accurately, with them not appearing too vibrant or dull. While capturing images outdoors, we noticed that skin tones rendered really well with the hues not appearing enhanced.
The camera performs brilliantly indoors as well and we noticed that the grain is kept to a minimal. When using manual settings, we observed that the noise levels were not high. At ISO set to 3200 or even 6400, images were usable. However a strange feature noticed here is that the camera, in auto mode does not click pictures at higher than ISO 1600. We found this to be quite strange as the camera features a maximum ISO of 12800. The camera, however has some really bad auto focusing capabilities. In macro shots, this is very noticeable as the subject that one wants to focus on does not get locked. One will need to retry focusing till the desired subject gets locked. The image quality is good thereafter and like the rest of the still image performances, the macro shots captured well.
