Summary

Our Score:

9

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 3.7MB.

----

The level of detail is excellent for a 10MP sensor,.

----

Although very sharp, the lens does suffer from barrel distortion at wide angle.

----

Centre sharpness is excellent.

----

There is a little blurring in the far corners of the frame, but no chromatic aberration.

It's got an unusually fast lens for a compact, very tempting. I'm looking to get a new compact camera this summer, it's getting harder & harder to choose!! HX-5, WX-1, TZ10, CX3 - Arggh!!!

This camera is indeed very well featured, but as for the Image Quality rating should have been 6 or 7 because the pictures taken with this camera is inconsistent.





ChrisC: You should check out Panasonic ZR3. It's an all-rounder in terms of features, camera size, image quality, speed, etc.

Wonder what would happen if you did a panorama pan shot while following a passing car/person/bicycle. Could be interesting!
