Here’s the usual detail test shot of the West Window of Exeter Cathedral, for you to compare with other cameras. See below for a full res crop, or click to see the whole picture. File size 2.17MB.
The image quality is terrible even by budget compact standards.

The centre looks over-sharpened, but actually lacks detail.
The corner suffers from pixellated digital distortion, as well as chromatic aberration from the lens.
