”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.

Here’s my 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. Please note that this shot was taken at the HQ quality setting, rather than the highest SHQ setting. If I get the chance I’ll re-shoot tomorrow and upload new pictures.
Even at the HQ setting, the level of detail is extremely good for a 7MP camera.
The lens produces virtually zero barrel distortion at wide angle, although the corners are a bit soft.
This was shot at the telephoto end of the zoom, and shows no pincushion distortion.
