Under ideal conditions the Acer CU-6530 is capable of turning in some excellent photos, with good edge-to-edge sharpness and plenty of detail. There is a little chromatic aberration in the top left corner though.
The default sharpness level is much too harsh, producing hard edges and black lines around the lettering. Setting it to low sharpening produced much nicer results.
