A DSLR-styled fixed-lens BRIDGE camera but, with a 30x zoom and a host of EXTRA features, could be the best yet
Images are bright and punchy straight from the camera, though artefacts can be seen on close inspection, due to the processing, even at low ISO. Image noise is fairly well controlled though, with signs appearing from ISO 800 upwards, though only the ISO 3200 and ISO 6400 settings showing heavy deterioration. Raw files are far more natural and detailed, and avoid the artefacting of the JPEGs. However, the RAF format of the files is currently only fully supported by the included Silkypix (PC/MAC) software that comes with the camera.
