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.


Lots of fine detail from the 12-megapixel sensor.


The lens produces some barrel distortion at wide-angle, but no worse than most ultra-compacts.


The lens is a little soft compared to some, but not enough to be a problem in most situations.


There is a bit more blurring at the edges of the frame, and a bit of chromatic aberration too.
