Summary

User Score:

Over the next few pages we show a range of test shots. On this page the full size image at the minimum and maximum ISO settings have been reduced to let you see the full image, and a series of full resolution crops have taken from original images at a range of ISO settings to show the overall image quality. These pictures were taken indoors using shaded natural light.

----

This is the full frame at minimum ISO.

----

At 80 ISO the picture quality is excellent, with no visible noise.

----

Quality is still very good at 100 ISO.

----

Some slight reduction in detail at 200 ISO, but the quality is still very good.

----

Noise reduction has reduced detail still further, but noise is being kept at bay.

----

The image is getting a bit fuzzy at 800 ISO, but colour is still good.

----

Detail is greatly reduced at the maximum 1600 ISO, but colour is still acceptable for small image sizes.

----

This is the full frame at 1600 ISO.

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.
