Casio Exilim EX-Z33 - Test Shots - Detail and Lens Performance

Summary

Our Score:

6

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.

----

Although the fine detail is there it's ruined by poor dynamic range and massive over-sharpening.

----

The lens suffers from major barrel distortion at wide angle.

----

Centre sharpness isn't too bad, but again the poor image processing is evident.

----

Corner sharpness is also not too terrible, but chromatic aberration is plainly visible.

----

Dynamic range is very limited, with virtually no shadow detail. The Z33 has no contrast boosting technology.

Hmmm, neat little camera yes. I bought this for my daughter to use, it is Simple and Easy to use. Great Pics! Has software CD and USB cord for uploading pictures. Fantastic! The battery "is re-chargeable", comes with a handy little charger base, separate from the camera that plugs into the wall! I guess so you can charge your battery separately while uploading the pictures to the computer...


... I figured this out the hard way when I learned the camera WONT charge the Battery "while connected to the computer". I am so bummed now. I just assumed it could be recharged by being connected to the computer!(just like most all other computer electronics)


Oh well.


We live.


We learn.
