The picture quality was decent for the size and price of the camera. Most outdoor shots were not well exposed, but in focus and clear. The colors were distorted and not saturated enough (compared to $250 Canon A40).
The first shot (lake) has inaccurate coloration with greenish sky and yellow-red grass.
The second picture (house) shows white balance problem, which causes loss of detail.
The third shot (motorcycle) shows that the camera is easily overwhelmed by light and the main object is underexposed, which is reminiscent of old generation digital cameras.
The last picture (bushes) shows visible purple fringing.
The quality of the indoor pictures depends on the lightning conditions. If not enough light is present, the shot becomes very noisy and grainy.
