Nikon CoolPix S600 - Test shots - ISO performance

A range of test shots are shown over the next few pages. Here, the full size images at the minimum and maximum ISO settings have been reduced for bandwidth purposes to let you see the full image, and a series of crops taken from original full resolution images at a range of ISO settings have been included in order for you to gain an appreciation of the overall quality.


This is the full frame at the minimum ISO setting.


At 100 ISO, image quality is excellent with smooth colours and plenty of fine detail.


200 ISO and still no problems.


There is a little noise visible at 400 ISO, but overall quality remains high.


Some detail has been lost at 800 ISO, but colour balance and exposure are unaffected.


Noise reduction has blurred more detail at 1600 ISO, but the overall result is surprisingly good for a 10MP compact.


Quite a lot of noise at 3200 ISO, but overall colour still isn't too bad.


This is the full frame at 3200 ISO.

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.
