Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ18 - Test Shots - Full Res Crops

A range of test shots are shown over the next two pages. Here, the full size image has been reduced for bandwidth purposes, and in some case a crop taken from the original full resolution image has been placed below it in order for you to gain an appreciation of the overall quality.

Here's the usual shot of Exeter Cathedral's West Window for detail comparison. I take this same shot with every compact camera I test. Click on the image to see it full size or look at the 100 percent crop below.

----



The actual level of detail isn't much different to an 8MP pocket compact.

----



This is the first time I've ever seen a wide-angle lens produce no barrel distortion at all. There is no pincushion distortion at longer focal lengths either.

----



Corner-to-corner sharpness is also outstanding.

----



The limited dynamic range has burned out the sky in this shot.

----



However at least there is no purple fringing.
