Nikon Coolpix S7c - Test Shots - Exposure Evaluation

/94/6f47fe/2380/3653-Nikon-S7c-colour1.jpg
I found that the automatic white balance system produced inconsistent colour reproduction even in good light. Take a look at the brown Autumn leaves in this sunlit shot.

These are the same leaves shot in isolation. The colour has confused the white balance system into adding a nasty blue cast to the image, robbing the leaves of their red colour.

I try to take this same shot with many different cameras, so you can get an accurate idea of the level of detail recorded. See the full-res crop below.

/94/f34fa8/e389/3653-Nikon-S7c-detail2.jpg
This is a full-resolution crop of the above image, and shows the excellent level of detail captured by the S7c’s 7.1MP sensor. The anti-bird netting on the cathedral stonework is clearly visible.
----
/94/64c8c0/accb/3653-Nikon-S7c-flash.jpg
The S7c has a slightly weak flash, with a range of just 2.6m at wide angle and 50 ISO. Coverage is good though, and recharge time is nice and quick.
