Olympus SP-590UZ - 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.


The level of detail is about average for a 12MP compact, but the poor lens quality doesn't help.


The lens produces significant barrel distortion at wide angle.


Centre sharpness is very good...


....but the corners are very distorted with chromatic aberration.
