”A range of test shots are shown over the next two pages. Here, the full size image has been reduced for bandwidth purposes, and in some case a crop taken from the original full resolution image has been placed below it in order for you to gain an appreciation of the overall quality.”
Unlike some 10MP compacts, the Z1050 has no problem with purple fringing.

Colour rendition is excellent, although the limited dynamic range means the sky has been burned out.
A 10cm macro range is nothing special, but focusing is quick and accurate.
