Pentax Optio Z10 - Test Shots – Exposure Evaluation



View All

”A range of general test shots are shown over the next two pages. In some cases, the full size image has been reduced for bandwidth purposes, and a crop taken from the original full resolution image has been placed below it to show the overall image quality. Some other pictures may be clicked to view the original full-size image.”


At ISO 64 in good light the Z10 is capable of producing good pictures, with excellent colour and exposure.


The Z10 has an interesting “digital wide” mode, which works like panorama stitching, adding two consecutive shots to produce a wide-angle scene equivalent to 28mm, however the joins may no be precise.


The wide angle end is equivalent to 38mm, not really wide enough for panoramic shots.


The telephoto end is equivalent to 266mm, great for picking out details.
