Summary

Our Score:

8

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. File size 5.95MB.

----

The level of detail is good, and overall quality much improved over previous Olympus compacts.

----

The lens does produce some barrel distortion at wide angle, but it's not too obtrusive.

----

Centre sharpness is very good for a periscope lens.

----

Corner sharpness is also very good.

Glad to see Olympus finally abandoned the xD card. Name was a bit ... XDDD for the internet age.


Just one question. Is there a waterproof-shockproof camera with normal lens? I don't care for underwater shooting. I like taking normal photos with a camera that doesn't fear water and hard treatment without distorted pictures.

am I being thick - what is not 'normal' about the lens on this camera?

I presume by "normal" you mean an extending front-mounted lens? It would be very difficult to make a lens like that waterproof, but the closest would probably be the Canon D10, although the Pentax W90 and Ricoh G600 also have front-mounted lenses. Next week I'll be reviewing a new dive case from Seashell - waterproof to 40m - which can be adapted to fit most current small compact cameras, so watch this space...

Oups, sorry. I didn't see the camera shots in the review. I was in a hurry.


They look good. Previous years models had some problems with "overwater" shots. Had lens better suited for underwater.


Seems like technology has advanced and i have some lag.
