Daytime Landscape Comparison

In this 'Real world' comparison test we pointed our six test cameras at the same daylight scene using comparable settings. All cameras were mounted on a tripod and set to their respective base ISO sensitivity settings, in program mode. White balance was set to automatic, and we aimed to match a focal length of roughly 35mm (equivalent) as closely as possible on all cameras. This daylight scene contains a mixture of high and low-contrast detail, which makes it ideal for assessing the relative merits of these cameras' JPEG engines.

By default, the main image here is from the Canon SX230HS. To see our comments on the image quality from the other cameras in this group, you can select them from the dropdown at the top of the comparison tool. Depending on the size of your computer monitor, you might get a better experience by selecting 'full screen mode'.
