This page consists of resized images so that you can evaluate the overall exposure.
At the wide angle end of the zoom range the W70’s lens suffers from barrel distortion, but no more than most 3x zoom compacts.
The wide-angle end of the zoom range is equivalent to 38mm, not very wide but about average for a pocket compact.
You can’t spot it as easily as in the main ISO test shot, but if you look at the vertical line of the shopfront on the right you can see the bowing effect caused by pincushion distortion in this telephoto shot.
