If you are looking for an entry level camera, is the L1 a good choice? The camera has it’s share of problems, but does the great picture quality make up for it’s other issues?
One of the best ways to show off a cameras capabilities is to grab some macro shots. Of course whenever flowers or interesting objects are along the way, it gives a good chance to take some macro shots. I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves. You can view full versions of the images by following the links below each. Warning though, the full resolution images are near 1MB each.
One thing the L1 excels at is the ability to retain the correct coloring and shading of your picture. Really, what you see is what you are going to get when it’s on your PC. Compared to some other cameras I have used, this one does an outstanding job of keeping the natural colors that we seen in the first place. Speaking of comparisons… let’s compare some shots with a Casio Exilim.
