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.

----

There is plenty of sharp fine detail, better than average for a 10MP compact.

----

The Nikkor lens produces some barrel distortion at wide angle, but it's no worse than most of its rivals.

----

Centre sharpness is excellent.

----

There is some slight blurring in the far corners of the frame at wide angle. A little purple fringing too.

----

There is no distortion at the telephoto end.

It states on most sites that the Nikon S600 has a firework mode and panorama assist, but unfortunatly it doesn't have these 2 features. Also, in movie mode, it picks up slight clicking sounds from the button when you zoom in, and it is a step zoom, not a smooth one. Apart from this, it is a really good camera.
