Samsung PL80 - Test Shots - Detail And Lens Performance

User Score:

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.


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 for the full sized image. The downloadable file is approximately 3MB.


The strong image compression had robbed the image of much of its potential.


Wide angle lens distortion is corrected electronically.


Centre sharpness is very good.


Corner sharpness is also good, with minimal chromatic aberration.

I'm very surprised by your ratings. You are basically saying that there are significant weaknesses in this product, and that there are better cameras out there.

This is a Trusted Review, and your camera reviewers are experts. People who'll buy any camera, when they need them, don't come here for a considered and expert review. So, please, when a camera really doesn't cut it, don't give it a score above 5. A score of 7, demeans the narrow band between 8-10. So does 8 now mean "pretty awful" ?
