The camera has no anti-aliasing filter in front of the CMOS sensor, which gives it very high edge acuity, but gives it a greater chance of producing more moire artifacts than most cameras. This can be partially compensated for with the software, which has advanced noise reduction capabilities. It also has impressively high dynamic range (the ability to capture both light and dark subjects well in the same image). It has less of a useful range of ISO sensitivity than many modern digital SLR cameras, although the selectable range is very large.
The camera is very unusual for a DSLR in having a long exposure setting where film speeds down to 6 ASA and exposure settings up to 60 seconds can be selected. This would have been useful for Product Photography.
