Head to head comparisson
Below you can find a studio comparison between the BenQ DC C50 and the Olympus C-5060 WZ at ISO 400. The lens was zoomed to the middle of the range while both cameras were in Aperture priority mode and F5.6. Distanse from the subject was 115cm (+/- 1%). Both cameras were mounted on a tripod and the shutter was released by the in-camera timer.
High ISO performance
At ISO 400, the Olympus C-5060 remains sharper and clearly captures more detail
than the C-50. Colour Saturation drops noticeably for both cameras, while the
colour accuracy gap is narrowed. The image quality rendered by the C-50 is
colour dependant and though you could say it surpasses the C-5060 in some areas,
you can't ignore a slight blue colour cast. Almost all of the noise produced
by C-50's sensor is in the blue channel. The C-5060 continues to produce noisy
images, but with a ?grainy? feel very different than the average ?colour-noisy? compact,
like the C50. Overall, ISO 400 performance for both cameras isn't disappointing
compared to the competition from other brands.
