Canon PowerShot G5

In terms of optical geometry there was the usual slight barrelling at wide-angle, but at telephoto it was perfectly square. Screen coverage proved accurate too.

Fujifilm FinePix S602 Pro Zoom

In terms of optical geometry, there was slightly more barrelling than normal at wide-angle and ever so slight pincushion at the telephoto end; we’ll forgive the S602 Pro though as it has a longer than average 6X optical zoom range. Screen coverage was also fairly accurate.

Nikon Coolpix 5400

In terms of optical geometry there was the usual slight barrelling at wide-angle, but the telephoto end was fairly square, and screen coverage proved quite accurate too.

Olympus CAMEDIA C-5050 Zoom

In terms of optical geometry there was slight barrelling at wide-angle, but at the telephoto end the geometry was very square and the screen coverage pretty accurate.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-V1

In terms of optical geometry there was the usual slight barrelling at wide-angle, and a hint of pincushion at telephoto, although little to worry about in practice. Screen coverage proved to be accurate.
