Nikon CoolPix P50 - Test shots - Exposure evaluation

By Cliff Smith



Our Score:


Here are some general test shots to help evaluate the camera's overall image quality, including the zoom range of the lens. Some pictures may be clicked to download the full size original image.


The wide angle end of the zoom range is 28mm, useful for wide panoramic shots.


The telephoto end is equivalent to 102mm, no better than most 3x zoom compacts.


Dynamic range is pretty good, with good shadow detail although there are burned-out highlights.


This is the same shot, but processed using the D-Lighting function in playback mode.


Close-range flash exposure is well metered, and the range isn't bad either.

This camera has endured itself to me through it's simplicity and thoughtful design. It does not have every knob but what it does have are the most essential and useful features organized into very logical menus and the shooting mode dial. The body is made up of solid polycarbonate material that typically finds it way into high end bike levers made by Shimano. Except of the lack of granularity (full stop adjustments) in the manual mode, I give it 5/5 stars.
