You read our review of this camera, right?

The photographs below were taken at default settings, with the ISO fixed at 50. The image quality and resolution were at their highest levels.

Photos 1-2 were taken in and around the SF Ferry Building.

Photos 3-7 were taken in Chinatown.
** Please note that I accidentally took most of these shots at the "basic" image quality setting. Do not judge resolution or sharpness based on those photos! I apologize for this screwup. **

Photo 8 was taken here at home.

Photos 9-11 were taken at Crissy Field.

Photos 12-18 are from Stanford University.

Clicking on the thumbnail will display a reduced, 800 x 600 image. Clicking on the link below that will show the full-size (large!) image. Please do not judge the photo quality from any image except for the full-size image, as these smaller images were recompressed when they were downsized.

I've noted any special modes I used underneath the photo. You can click on "View EXIF data" to get additional information about each photo.
