Nikon CoolPix S710 - Test Shots - Exposure Evaluation
Here are some general test shots to help evaluate the camera's overall image quality, including the zoom range of the lens. Some pictures may be clicked to download the full size original image
The wide angle end of the zoom range is equivalent to 28mm, good for general snapshots.
The telephoto end is equivalent to 101mm, which is actually shorter than most 3x zoom compacts.
The dynamic range is very limited, with both highlights and shadow areas lacking detail in this high-contrast shot.
Applying the D-Lighting option to the above image in playback mode recovers some shadow detail, but also adds a lot of noise. It does nothing for the burned-out highlights.
Colours are a bit muted, but to be fair it was a cloudy day.
Low light focusing is fast and accurate, and the powerful flash fills a large room easily. The band is called Barbossa, and they're fantastic. Check them out if you get the chance.
