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.


The level of fine detail is very good for an 8MP camera.


The lens produces significant barrel distortion at wide angle, but more worrying is the noticeable darkening in the corners of the frame.


Centre sharpness is very good.


There is a little blurring and purple fringing in the corners.


No real problems with pincushion distortion at the telephoto end.

I had the good fortune to try this camera out for a week (thanks to ASDA's customer-friendly returns policy) and although I took it back and exchanged it for a Sony W110, I actually think I made the wrong decision (and I later sold the sony!)

The J10 does not excel in any area, but it has some excellent scene modes built in, even if they are buried in the vast menu. It is very small, very light, very stylish (to my eyes) and incredibly easy to use. If you are looking for a cheap-ish camera to slip in your shirt pocket, that will cover almost all potential photo ops, I think you could do a lot worse. As mentioned, I do think the abscence of face-detection is unforgiveable in a camera of this sort - it could be the ideal party/night out camera with that function added.
