Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS20 - Test shots - Detail and lens perfomance

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 overall level of detail is very good, but there is a slight softness to the image, probably a result of processing.


The Leica-branded lens is very good as usual, producing very little distortion at the wide angle end.


Centre sharpness is very good.


Corner sharpness is also excellent, only fading in the very far corners of the frame.


At the telephoto end of the zoom there is almost no pincushion distortion.

i got this camera at a great price of € 140.00 with a spare battery and i have to say i am very impressed with the simplicity of use and build quality in general.

my previous 2 cameras were samsungs which were very solid, but the picture quality and lcd on the panasonic leaves them standing. excellent for anyone who just want to take photos without any hassle.....
