Summary

Our Score:

8

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.

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 3.64MB.

----

The level of fine detail is good, but the lens could be a bit sharper.

----

The lens avoids barrel distortion at wide angle.

----

Centre sharpness isn't bad, but some recent rivals are better.

----

Corner blurring is also kept to a minimum, but there is significant chromatic aberration.

Hi,





The images quality(IQ) looks a like washout when compared to the a lot of medium price P&S cameras in the market. Personally I won't buy it if I am a new buyer.





I don't think it deserves a rate of 8 in terms of the IQ ratings.

This camera is beyond me! Just what, or who, is its target market? People who like spending enough to buy something really good but prefer spending it on something mediocre?





tean is spot on, objecting to the 8 for IQ.
