Using just auto-focus, no flash, nothing but click and shoot (oh, and no cropping or retouching in iPhoto), here's two photos from the new camera:
Maggie being her photogenic self:
Miss Cecily taking a rest:
Here's an action shot - again, just point & shoot, no shutter speed adjustment - which has been cropped but is otherwise unretouched:
There might be some light/color differences between PCs and Macs in viewing JPG images on web sites, depending on the monitor being used. [Don't ask me how I know that, I'm still traumatized - see this link, and scroll down to Gamma.]
Quick and dirty verdict? I adore this camera already. The detail that doesn't come across in the web/image compression is a d@mn shame, but the photos printed straight off the drive will make some wonderful prints.
Problem? @#$!! presbyopia. I have to trust the auto-focus, or else start wearing my reading glasses to view the display.
I'll post review updates as I learn to use the camera more.
