Kodak EasyShare C180 - Test Shots - Detail and Lens Performance

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 low quality lens and Kodak's usual savage file compression have robbed the image of all fine detail. The full-size shot is only 1.72MB. From most other 10MP compacts it would be around 4MB.

The lens produces significant barrel distortion at wide angle, although to be fair I've seen a lot worse.

Centre sharpness is about average for the class, but the compression is again causing problems.

Horrible corner blurring and chromatic aberration, and this was the sharpest corner.
