Default S1600 test shots

Meant to put the heading as S1600 test shots

The S1600 turned up today and I bought this camera as a simple point and shoot for family days out with the wife, kids and dogs. Had a nice day so I thought I'd pop to the local beach and take some 'snap' shots. These were literally 'point, press and shoot' with no artistic thought going into them.
I took one indoors of the leaf on iso 200 and most of these photo's were taken on Av mode. The one downside when using AV you either choose F3.1 or F6.3 at wide angle or F5.6 or F11 at telephoto end.

I wouldn't use this camera as my main camera due to the limitations but for a family day out and quick snaps and for less than 100, it's got to be a pretty good bargain. On some reviews they say image quality isn't great but having viewed them at 100% it captures some pretty good detail. As most of my prints are 7"x5" with the occasional A4 print, I think this camera does a pretty good job at what it's intended to do which is become a bridge 'point and shoot' camera.

It looks like it does well when there is lots of light and you can hold down the ISO setting.

Looks like it did the job as desired. I've also changed the title for you so it reads correctly

There's a reason you couldn't find it, you need admin rights, they let me have just enough to fix some things and ban problem people but not enough to completely delete the site

Howiem-

Thanks for the reply. I will look forward to seeing some numerically high ISO shot with the S1600.
