A range of test shots are shown over the next few pages. Here, 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 in order for you to gain an appreciation of the overall quality. The following pages consist of resized images so that you can evaluate the overall exposure. For those with a dial-up connection, please be patient while the pages download.
Full-sized versions of some of the following images can be downloaded in a new window by clicking on the sample shots as indicated. However be aware that the average file size is over 3.5MB, so those on slow connections will experience some delay.
This is the standard shot that I use for detail comparisons. See below for a full-size crop, or click on the image to download the original version.
For those of you with slow connections, here’s a 100 percent crop of the centre of the picture above, so you can see the level of detail. It’s about the same as most of the recent 6MP compacts I’ve tested.
The A700’s lens produces some very oddly shaped distortion at its widest setting.
Corner sharpness is quite good for a budget camera, with minimal chromatic aberration.
