Summary

5/10

Review Price free/subscription

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 detail is very low, colours are blotchy and the whole thing is over-compressed.

----

The lens produces significant barrel distortion.

----

Centre sharpness is terrible.

----

Corner sharpness is also poor, with the added problem of chromatic aberration.

I know this is 'ultra-cheap', but it's still 65 quid, and for that it seems like an absolute rip-off. I would argue you dont get what you pay for at all. I quick trip to amazon reveals you can pick up a samsung S1070 10mp cam for 68 quid, and that was literally the first sub-100 camera on the very front page of the digital cameras section. I dont know the samsung is any better, but it demonstrates there is a lot more to choose from at this price point, and plenty of well-known brands too. This G-Shot thing seems awesomely bad.

Thanks for the review. Consumers should realize that a brand name usually means something and no-name brands are not "just as good."
