This 6MP digicam seems designed for the photographer who wants a lot of
big-camera functions and performance in a small package.
I shot the same scene at ISO 100 and ISO 3200 (lower left), changing nothing but the ISO setting. Both shots are set to -2/3 exposure compensation, with Multi Metering. The three squares around the image showing the actual pixels at 100% from the image straight from camera, for comparison. No image processing whatsoever, except for resizing was done to either picture.
