Re: I have measured the curvature

If you measure the curvature of the horizon from the left side to the little piece of land at the right side with the photoshop ruler tool, you get that the maximum deviation from a straight line is 4 pixels in the biggest image shown at DPReview.

And that image is approx 500 pixels center to top. So ... the distortion is 0.8%.

The image by Sandy only showed half a water line, and it was not even a horizon. So .... its impossible to measure Sandy´s images with that precision.

The close up is distorted though. Or ... is the photo really 100% flat?
