Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W80 - 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.”


The 3x zoom lens has a wide angle end equivalent to 35mm, a little wider than average for a pocket compact. However the shot is a bit over-exposed, with blown out highlights.


The telephoto end is equivalent to 105mm. The exposure on this shot is much better.


Colour reproduction is good.


This was shot hand-held at full zoom at a shutter speed of 1/8th of a second, but is shake-free thanks to the Super SteadyShot electronic image stabilisation system.
