When I say dark, I mean I couldn’t read the label on the bottle, it was too dark to see with unaided eyes. Overall I’m quite impressed. Though I see evidence of over-sharpening in the images. However, I read somewhere that it is possible to get the camera to save the raw files. I’ll have to check it out.
I may even leave my camera at home on my next backpacking trip, which will reduce bulk and weight. The bulk aspect is fairly imp[ortant for my comfort as I have to keep the electronic gear under the covers with me to keep it warm once the temperatures start dropping below freezing.
