Summary

Our Score:

7

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.
