Editors Didn't Like

  • Noticeable shutter lag
  • Limited zoom range
  • Lack of Raw capture
  • Exposure and white balance a touch erratic
  • Small sensor means it doesn't offer the image quality increase of other advanced compacts
  • Flash unusable for closest macro capabilities (0.8 inches/2cm) due to overexposure and shadow cast by lens
