Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ5 - 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. ”


I took the TZ5 to a music festival over the weekend, and it survived rain, mud, drunkenness, dancing, two nights in a damp tent and being bumped around in my pocket without a problem, and still turned in excellent pictures. The 28mm-equivalent wide-angle is great for getting the whole scene into the frame.


The telephoto end is equivalent to 280mm, great for getting in really close to the action. This was taken from the same position as the frame above.


This shot is perhaps a little over-exposed, but the colour reproduction is excellent.


In this crop from the frame above you can see that there is minimal purple fringing even on high contrast edges.
