Samsung L830 - Test shots - Detail and lens perfomance

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.

----



The overall detail could be better. A lot of really fine detail is obscured by image noise, even in this 80 ISO shot.

----



The L830's lens does produce some barrel distortion at the wide angle end, but it's not too terrible.

----



Centre sharpness is very good, but again image noise is plainly visible.

----



Corner sharpness is also pretty good.

----



No trace of pincushion distortion in this telephoto shot.
