Summary

Our Score:

9

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 detail test shot of the West Window of Exeter Cathedral, for you to compare with other cameras. See below for a full res crop, or click to see the whole picture.

----

The level of fine detail is exceptionally good, among the best ever from a pocket compact.

----

The lens produces some barrel distortion at wide angle, but I've seen a lot worse.

----

Excellent sharpness at the centre of the frame.

----

There is some blurring at the very edges of the frame, and surprisingly some purple fringing too.
