Each pair of test shots below is made up from a reduced size whole image, and a crop from the same image at full resolution.
The hard metallic highlights and shadow detail have proved too much for the V700’s limited dynamic range, but focus, exposure and colour rendition are all excellent.
The colours in this shot are well saturated and accurately rendered, but the whole shot is slightly under-exposed.
The bright colours in this shot are a challenge for most digital cameras, but the Samsung has coped well, with plenty of detail even in the highlights.
At maximum zoom the excellent Schneider-Kreuznach 3x zoom lens provides sharp detail with no visible distortion.
Although the focus and exposure are accurate, this macro wide-angle shot suffers from a lot of barrel distortion.
The green and purple tones here are accurately rendered, but again a slight under-exposure robs the shot of some impact.
