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.

The level of fine detail is amazingly good for an 8MP camera, better in fact than most 10MP models.

The lens produces some barrel distortion at the wide-angle end, but it is not too severe.

There is some pincushion distortion at the telephoto end, but again it isn't too bad.
