Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ2 - 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 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.
Full-sized versions of some of the following images can be downloaded by clicking on the sample shots as indicated. However be aware that the average file size is around 2.4MB, so those on very slow connections will experience some delay.
In case you missed it in the last review, here's another shot of the front window of Exeter cathedral for detail comparison. See below for a full-res crop, or click to download.
Compare this with similar shots from other reviews of 6MP cameras. The level of fine detail is very good, although the aggressive image compression has done it no favours.
The TZ2's remarkable lens produces no barrel distortion at all, even at its widest setting. This is the best I've seen from a camera of this type.
This is a crop from the bottom left of the above picture, showing excellent corner sharpness and zero chromatic aberration.
