Kodak EasyShare Z1085 IS - Test shots - Detail and lens perfomance

By Cliff Smith



Our Score:


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.


While there is plenty of detail the image quality suffers from compression, over-sharpening and slight noise.


Unusually the Schneider-Kreuznach lens produces very noticeable barrel distortion at the wide-angle end. The two images below are cops from this frame.


Corner sharpness is pretty good though.


Centre sharpness is good, but again over-compressed and over-sharpened.


There is some pincushion distortion at the telephoto end.

If i had to guess i would say the whining noise is the image stabiliser in the lens, i have an optically stabilised lens on my slr and it makes a whining noise all the time very faint even when the o/s is switched off.
