Here is a device that is positioned as ultrazoom as a 30-fold optical approximation. But at the same time, all of the functionality in a compact body, in which we can say that we face a very good compact camera. Agree, not a hindrance, a large zoom will please those who “pecked” the appearance of the camera.
Appearance shows serious intentions of this compact. It is powerful, iron and impressive. Build excellent – metal body tightly assembled, there is no feeling that the device will fall apart. On the left side there is a small ledge for easy grip hand.
The upper bound curly, and the power button is located at a slight angle. This solution makes running the camera as convenient as when you hold it with two hands (which often happens) and you want to include the index finger of his right hand, he is at an angle relative to the top panel and is not always possible to activate the camera the first time, or more comfortable to cope with it. With the same arrangement of the task becomes much easier, and all the testing device, I see this.
In addition to the power button is present in flash, zoom and tranfokatora shutter button and video button.
On the right side is a button shifts the focus and lowering the lever flashes. On the opposite there eyelet belt and microHDMI connectors and A / V Out under the cap.
The reverse side of “medal” includes a display and control buttons, including the mode dial and the four-way joystick with a disk and a central button Func. / Set.
On display impressions were twofold. Indoors it much noise, giving initially the wrong picture. That is, do you think that the picture will be as noisy and “dirty”. But the pictures are quite different quality, much better than you saw initially. In good light, the street does not.
Menu and Control
Selector modes are available in the “Manual”, “Shutter priority”, “Aperture priority”, “software”, “direct control”, “Hybrid Auto”, “Auto”, “creative picture”, “Sport”, “Scenes” “Effects” and “video shooting.” “Direct Control” helps to adjust the brightness / contrast, color saturation and color before shooting themselves. “The creative picture” makes a few photos with different visual effects.
The menu has only two sections – the settings for taking pictures, and general settings. The first available selection of focus and other settings of focus, flash and other settings. The next section is for the basic settings of the device, such as date / time, language.
In an accompanying menu for each mode (which can be activated by pressing the Func / Set) have individual settings, including the quality, size and format of photos.
Focus mode selector button on the right side of the camera activates the auto-focus camera on the set parameters. For example, it can be a person, it could be a man to the waist, full length or range of the focus manually. In the first three cases, the camera zooming to dispose of its discretion, in the last – you. This function does not work in manual mode.
For the quality of the photo corresponds to 20.3 BSI CMOS sensor megapikselny size of 1 / 2.3 inches, and for image processing -novenky processor DIGIC 6. The lens has a 30x optical zoom and the following characteristics: focal length 4,5-135,0 mm aperture 1: 3,2-6,9. The latter figure appears not very promising, especially at maximum zoom. There Intelligent IS with improved dynamic five-axis image stabilization, and also has a classic slide-type optical stabilization.
ISO values can be selected in the range of 80 to 3200, and set the shutter speed from 15 seconds to 1/3200 seconds. Videos can be shot in Full HD with a frame rate of 60 f / s.
The picture quality for the compact is even nothing. Color balance, brightness, contrast, wonderful, if you shoot in a well-lit room or outdoors in the daytime. If you shoot in a room with a room light, color rendition goes slightly yellowing, as well as artifacts and noise appear. When you focus on dark subjects hotspots are inevitable, but in contrast to this there is an excellent approach without losing quality. Also, I personally did not have the contrast of the image.
To transfer the footage to a TV and other devices have wireless modules Wi-Fi and NFC.
Lithium-ion battery capacity of 1060 mAh enough to create 250-300 shots.
A good, compact and easy-to-use device. Pleases quality zoom, and the ability to take it everywhere with you. Seriously, this is a very good compact camera
