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

By Cliff Smith



Our Score:


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.
