Fujifilm FinePix Z20fd Review - Test Shots – Detail and Lens Performance Review

”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 image looks over-processed, with some artefacts and much less fine detail than I’d expect from a 10MPcamera.

The Z20fd automatically adjusts the image to compensate for lens distortion, so the parallel lines in this shot are all straight and level.


—-


Centre sharpness is pretty good, although there are some processing artefacts visible in the darker areas.


—-


Corner sharpness could be better, with both blurring and chromatic aberration.


—-


The distortion correction works at the telephoto setting as well.
