”A range of test shots are shown over the next two pages. Here, the full size image has been reduced for bandwidth purposes, and in some case a crop taken from the original full resolution image has been placed below it in order for you to gain an appreciation of the overall quality.”
My usual detail comparison shot, the main window of Exeter cathedral. See below for a full-size crop of this image.
Compare this 100 percent crop with test shots from other seven-megapixel cameras. The R6 produces a good level of detail, although there are a few compression artefacts.
Despite its unique specification and compact size, the R6’s lens produces very little barrel distortion. However compare this to the Panasonic TZ2.
This is a 100-percent crop from the corner of the above image, showing the degree of corner sharpness. There is a little purple fringing around the highlight.
Shooting deliberately into the sunlight, the Ricoh’s exposure meter has coped admirably, maintaining plenty of shadow detail.
This is a crop from the image above. There is no purple fringing around the high contrast edge of the statue.
