”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 level of detail is very good for such a cheap camera, mainly thanks to the Pentax lens.
There is some barrel distortion at wide-angle, but I’ve seen a lot worse.
Centre sharpness is excellent for a budget compact.
Only in the very corners of the frame is there any sign of blurring and chromatic aberration.
