”’Here are some general test shots taken with the EX-H20G to give an idea of performance ability when it comes to image quality, dynamic range, colour rendition and performance at various focal ranges.”’
This image, as well as being of a rather cute subject, shows the EX-H20G to the very best of its oint-and-shoot capabilities. Colours are warm but not unnaturally so, and this shot taken at the telephoto end of the lens is also nicely sharp to boot, being the best of a couple of attempts.
A gloomy day, but a good level of detail captured here, the house really standing out against a flat featureless sky, that has again given rise to some obvious pixel fringing around the branches of the tree in the foreground.
Another quintessentially English subject – the moggie on a wall – taken at maximum telephoto setting. Again, colours are richly saturated, even if the overall image suffers from being a little softer than we’d have hoped for courtesy of being taken at full zoom.
A rare bit of winter sunshine and we’ve an image displaying crisp colours that look as though they might leap from the screen. This looks as though we might have selected the Casio’s vivid colour setting – if it had one – but in fact this is the factory default, and particularly flattering it is too.
