F80 EXR review

My personal opinion, F80 EXR did have its good features although many might not agree with my comment as definition of good, average and bad varies base on individual's rating. For me, the image quality is above average, especially for the low light shooting which is much better than cameras at this price range category. (DSLR users might possibly rate the image quality as below average). Has Manual control, which is good but limited. I used a lot of the Pro Low Light mode and EXR, either HR or D Range modes. Fully agrees with Kim on the recommended settings, for this camera, the user needs to familiarize with the adjustments and settings in order to get good results. Noise level, yes they exist but acceptable considering the price we are paying for which is still better than many of its competitors. Generally, I'm happy with this camera and have gotten pretty nice pictures from it. Macro is not close enough but with a tripod, you could crop it nearer with better sharpness. I have quite a bit of macros in my collection and some are reasonably sharp.


Battery life, could be better
Needs to run through Manual for better understanding of the camera.
