Bank

This was my first try taking photos with the Xyboard and I had to take a number of shots before adjusting to the Xyboard's lengthy shutter lag.

Flowers

A nearby bouquet of flowers shows off the Xyboard's impressive ability to capture rich colors.

Xmas tree

Another shot I was happy with is this one of the Christmas tree in San Francisco's Union Square. The blue of the sky has a nice, smooth gradient and the detail on the tree carries all the way up the trunk.

Here's a shot taken from directly in front of the tree. Great detail.

Castle

Here's an indoor shot of a holiday display. No flash was used, yet the camera was able to ramp up its ISO enough to prevent the image from blurring.

Reindeer

For this shot I engaged the Xyboard's macro camera setting for a shallow focus. It worked nicely.

Another example of the Xyboard's camera in macro mode, revealing some great close-up detail.

City view

A view of San Francisco from a hotel elevator. No special settings here, but great detail all the way out to the skyline.
