Pentax Optio V20 - 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.


Although the image appears somewhat over-sharpened, the level of fine detail is very good thanks to the sharp lens.


The lens produces significant barrel distortion at wide angle, but no worse than most other long-zoom compacts.


Centre sharpness is very good, although again the over-sharpening is noticeable.


Corner sharpness is excellent, with negligible chromatic aberration.
