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.


Compare this shot with the 10-megapixel Samsung NV9. The 14.7-megapixel NV100HD produces less sharp fine detail, and less tonal gradation. This was shot in bright sunlight.


The Schneider-Kreuznach lens produces some barrel distortion at wide angle, but it's not too bad.


Centre sharpness is quite good, although the image lacks detail.


Corner sharpness is also good, although there is some chomatic aberration.


The small over-powered sensor has poor dynamic range. The shadows have almost no detail.


Applying Auto Contrast Balance in playback mode has almost no effect at all.
