Samsung Digimax V700 - Test Shots

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.

/94/d9644d/9738/1325-buskers.jpg
/94/3252d9/9239/1325-buskerscrop.jpg
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.

/94/ad692b/ca2f/1325-close.jpg
/94/d82504/689a/1325-closecrop.jpg
The colours in this shot are well saturated and accurately rendered, but the whole shot is slightly under-exposed.

/94/0d836e/e91a/1325-baloons.jpg
/94/75003b/3295/1325-baloonscrop.jpg

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.

/94/519425/d71d/1325-statue.jpg
/94/9c69a5/5449/1325-statuecrop.jpg

At maximum zoom the excellent Schneider-Kreuznach 3x zoom lens provides sharp detail with no visible distortion.

/94/4aedf7/d51a/1325-macro.jpg
/94/5d3b24/2fdd/1325-macrocrop.jpg

Although the focus and exposure are accurate, this macro wide-angle shot suffers from a lot of barrel distortion.

/94/c72e47/5508/1325-grass.jpg
/94/8ae6f8/5da6/1325-grasscrop.jpg

The green and purple tones here are accurately rendered, but again a slight under-exposure robs the shot of some impact.
