Canon EOS 1000D digital SLR - Test Shots – Exposure Evaluation



View All

”Here are some general test shots to help evaluate the camera’s overall image quality, including the zoom range of the lens. Some pictures may be clicked to download the full size original image. ”


The 1000D’s autofocus system is fast and reliable, useful for when the unexpected happens. I took this shot of a motorcycle that had burst into flames down the road from my house, and was able to get it printed in the local paper. The rider luckily walked away with minor injuries.


Colour reproduction is very good, but again the shot is slightly over-exposed.


This shot too is slightly over-exposed, which has burned out highlights on the rose window.


This is a crop from the image above, showing the burned-out highlights.


Using the Auto Lighting Optimiser feature helps to preserve some highlight detail, but not much.
