”Here are a few sample shots taken with the Epoque EHD-900 Ai, both above and under water.”
My usual distortion test shot shows significant barrel distortion, and even at this size you can see the corner blurring.
The image is horribly compressed, which loses a lot of fine detail, not that there was much to start with.
Corner blurring and chromatic aberration are particularly bad.
The monitor hood made the camera difficult to aim, and it refused to focus on this shell.
Again, the terrible low-light focusing results in a blurred shot.
At least this one is sharp, but that’s just because the seabed happened to be in the area that the camera had randomly focused on.
