Telephoto (top) and wide-angle

We were a little disappointed with the camera’s wide angle setting, which is equivalent to a 36mm lens on a 35mm camera. There is a panoramic stitch mode, although it’s no substitute for a wide angle lens in our view.

There are 20 auto functions to choose from, including Night Snapshot, which as these pictures show, does make a considerable impact when shooting scenes in low-light.
