The camera gives a pretty good performance. The photos taken in Macro mode give a very clear picture and look classic. The exposure and contrast of colors is also quite sharp and detailed and one can zoom upto 3x optical. There was some glaring when a picture of the sky was taken and the image turn up a bit hazy.
