A range of general test shots are shown over the next two pages. In some cases, the full size image has been reduced for bandwidth purposes, and a crop taken from the original full resolution image has been placed below it to show the overall image quality. Some other pictures may be clicked to view the original full-size image.

Here's the usual test shot of the west window of Exeter cathedral to compare detail and sharpness with other cameras. See below for a full-res crop or click to download the full-sized version.

The level of detail is very good, with low compression and good contrast.

----

There is almost no barrel distortion at wide angle, although some of this may be due to image processing.

----

Cente sharpness is superb.

----

Corner sharpness is also very good, although there is some chromatica aberration.
