Is it right that the sensor is used in 6MP mode with EXR, do you notice this in the final picture?


I've compared the 6mp results with 12mp results printed at A4 and there is very little visible difference in terms of resolution. If you use the EXR mode for enhanced dynamic range or less noise then there definitely is a noticeable difference, EXR does work very nicely. The trick with this camera is to learn how to use the different modes to your best advantage. Fortunately it has 3 custom modes on the command dial which make it easy to preset certain modes, which can be changed by just turning the dial. This is an excellent feature and saves a lot of time, it's a very well thought out camera.
