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 my usual DSLR test shot of Sidmouth seafront for comparison with other cameras. Click on the image to download a full-size version, but be aware that the file is 5.6MB.

Compare this with similar shots from the Canon EOS 500D or Nikon D5000. As you can see the A500 acquits itself well against its rivals.

A quick dose of Adobe Camera Raw soon fixes the minor CA problem.
