Nikon CoolPix S600 - Test shots - Detail and lens perfomance

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.


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.
