Nikon CoolPix S640 - 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. Downloadable file size is approximately 4.7MB.


The level of fine detail isn't as good as one might expect from a 12MP camera, thanks partially to image compression.


The lens produces a little wide angle barrel distoirtion, but it's not too severe.


Centre sharpness is pretty good.


Corner sharpness is also very good, but there is a little bit of purple fringing.

Goodness me it's like dealing with the Chinese goverment....can someone please tell me what's happened to your forum, and what measures you're taking to get it up and running. This lack of transparency is really embarrassing
