Nikon CoolPix S230 - Test Shots - Detail and Lens Performance

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 level of fine detail is actually pretty low for a 10MP camera; you can barely make out the stirings of the anti-bird netting.

----



With the Distoertion Control feature turned off the lens produces horrible barrel distortion at wide angle, despite only haveing a wide end of 35mm.

----



Turning the distortion control on corrected the curved paralells, and apparently makes the sun shine too (not really, it was taken on a different day).

----



This is the top right corner of the above image with distortion control turned off.

----



The same, but with distortion control turned on.

----




Centre sharpness looks pretty much the same in both cases.
