If the interior lighting is bright, the Optio P70 can deliver clean, crisp images.
Rather than fire off the flash, the Optio P70’s auto mode tends to boost the ISO and slow the shutter speed in fair to moderate light conditions - in this case, to 1/5s, ISO 800. The result is a very noisy image.

"The back is dominated by a 2.7in LCD screen composed of around 270,000 dots."
Now if I knew the aspect ratio of the screen, and did a quick bit of maths, I could transform this piece of information into something useful, like a screen resolution. Alternatively, you could have just told me it in the first place.
My Casio QV3000 from 2001 produced better shots than that. It looks like they were originally half the size, and then doubled in photoshop with a 'dust and scratches' filter followed by a good bit of unsharp masking.
Boo, hiss, etc.
