Canon PowerShot G10 - Test Shots - Detail and lens performance

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. Unfortunately we can't provide a full-sized version to download since the file size is too big for our miserly bandwidth allocation.

The level of detail is stunning, possibly the best from any compact camera I've tested.

The lens does produce some barrel distortion at wide angle, but it's not too apalling.

Centre sharpness is superb, absolutely pin sharp.

Corner sharpness is also good, but there is visible chromatic aberration.

Dynamic range could be better. While there is svisible shadow detail, the highlights have been burned out. This was taken with the i-Contrast feature turned off.

This is the same shot with the i-Contrast turned on; shadow detail is improved, but the highlights are still blown.
