Casio Exilim Zoom EX-Z50 Digital Camera Review - Test Shots – Full Res Crops Review

”A range of test shots are shown over the next two pages. Here, the full resolution image has been reduced in size for bandwidth purposes, and a crop (taken from the original full resolution image at Adobe ImageReady jpg quality 60) follows each image in order for you to gain an appreciation of the overall quality. The next page consists of resized images (to Adobe ImageReady jpg quality 50) in order for you to evaluate the overall exposure.”

”’As with many of the samples from this camera, this shot is somewhat over-exposed in the highlight areas and demonstrates some lens distortion at the peripheral edges. Notice the difference in resolution of the fencing in the background on the left side of the post box in comparison with the right side.”’

(f3.9, 1/80sec)


”’Focusing is quick and accurate. In this case the camera has correctly ignored the tree and focused on the scene in the background.”’

(f4.8, 1/200sec)


”’This outdoor macro shot is accurately focused but slightly over-exposed, with the detail being lost in highlight areas.”’

(f2.6, 1/60sec)


”’ISO 50: At the lowest ISO setting there is very little image noise and the picture is nice and sharp.”’

”’ISO 100: Picture quality is still pretty good at the second lowest setting, but there is some speckling in the darker areas.”’

”’ISO 200: At the second-highest sensitivity there is noticeable speckling on all but the lightest areas of the image.”’

”’ISO 400: At the highest sensitivity setting there is heavy noise right across the image.”’
