Nikon CoolPix S225 - Test Shots - Detail and Lens Performance

By Cliff Smith



Our Score:


A range of general test shots are shown over the next two pages. In some cases, the full size image has been reduced for bandwidth purposes, and a crop taken from the original full resolution image has been placed below it to show the overall image quality. Some other pictures may be clicked to view the original full-size image.


Here's the usual detail test shot of the West Window of Exeter Cathedral, for you to compare with other cameras. See below for a full res crop, or click to see the whole picture.


The poor lens quality and high compression factor mean poor detail.


Without the Distortion Control feature, the lens produces a lot of barrel distortion.


Distortion control corrects that, but it can't do much about the generally low lens quality.


Even at the centre the lens isn't sharp.


Uncorrected the corner sharpness is very poor.


Even with correction is't still not good.

I have to say this is a great camera - I have the plum model, and yes it gets some looks because I'm a 5'11" guy. hehe Here is my Flickr Group for this model: http://www.flickr.com/group... -- It really does take great photos - you have to adjust to it like you even have to adjust to a DSLR.

The review for this camera is not accurate as there is one major difference between the s200 and s225, besides the colour. The s225 is compatible with HCSD cards and the s200 is not. This means that the s225 can have memory cards that have a higher capacity than 2gb but the s200 cant have more that a 2gb memory card.
