Polaroid i1032 Review

Review Summary
Reader Score: 8.33 (out of 10)
Review: "Announced in May 2006, the Polaroid i1032 is a compact 10 megapixel digital camera with a 3x Optical/4x Digital zoom lens and a 2.4" LCD display. The 3x optical zoom lens is equivalent to 35 - 105mm on a 35mm camera. The Polaroid i1032 is available from around £125.99, this makes it good value for money for an compact digital camera....

...the Polaroid i1032 is noticeably let down by the lens, as it produces worrying purple fringing (chromatic aberrations), emphasized when using higher resolutions, so no matter how much post-processing goes on, this aspect of image quality will always be a weak point. Exposure appeared inconsistent, though it was possible to compensate for this with more considered use of the presets or some post processing (the worst photos were left out of the gallery). As the lens design does not support the 10 megapixel CCD resolution, polaroid have failed to capitalize on its benefits, and it performs like a camera with a smaller CCD."

...Exposure can be hit and miss with this camera when outside on bright sunny days, it can however produce some excellent colours, and very good macro photos on duller days. Purple fringing was quite bad in high contrast areas near picture corners, and will become more noticeable, on prints larger than A4. This is a lens quality issue, which becomes more exaggerated the higher the resolution of the picture. The camera was generally competent at focusing. I noticed slight barreling but no pincushion distortion..."
