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 about average for an 8MP compact.


Barrel distortion at wide angle is not too severe.


Sharpness is good near the centre of the frame.


Corner sharpness is very poor however, with some chromatic aberration.

Man, reading your comment on the Ol' A10, I remembered I still got my Ol' trusty a40 in almost mint condition... I don't use it for general photography anymore though. I bought the lens adaptor and got a tele and widelens for it in the day.

Nowadays is used mainly for stop motion animation. nice little bugger ^_^
