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.

----

The T900 does take a better picture than the Samsung NV100HD but then it does cost over twice as much.

----

Even without any soert of electronic distortion control the Carl Zeiss lens performs well, with mimimal wide-angle distortion.

----

Centre sharpness is very good.

----

Corner sharpness is also excellent, with only a little chromatic aberration aroiund the highlight.

----

With the DRo feature turned off the shot lack dynamic range, with no shadow detail.

----

With the DRO turned on some shadow detail is returned.

There are internet shops that appear to be selling this camera for £75 less than the 'as reviewed' price. I'd suggest Google :).

This thing has a lens that starts at f 3.5 at best on 35mm as the wides setting available? Thats really poor. No wonder the ouptut is so bad. Even my Canon SD780 has a bit better than that. And its no superstar camera itself

Is it still over priced if I can buy it for £220?


I love this camera. But want to get the best bang for buck as the Yanks say!
