Canon PowerShot A70

The Canon PowerShot A70 resolved 1050 lines per picture height in both the horizontal and vertical axes, which places it among the best of the 3 megapixel / 3X optical zoom cameras we’ve tested.

Fujifilm FinePix A303 Zoom

The Fujifilm FinePix A303 Zoom resolved 1000 lines per picture height in both the horizontal and vertical axes, which places it slightly below average of the 3 megapixel / 3X optical zoom cameras we tested.

Nikon Coolpix 3100

The Nikon Coolpix 3100 resolved 1050 lines per picture height in both the horizontal and vertical axes, which places it among the best of the 3 megapixel / 3X optical zoom cameras we tested. There was slight softness compared to the best we’ve seen, but it didn’t affect this result adversely.

Olympus {mju} 300

The Olympus {mju} 300 resolved 1000 lines per picture height in both the horizontal and vertical axes, which places it slightly below average of the 3 megapixel / 3X optical zoom cameras we tested. Of greater concern though were noisy speckled artefacts visible on images viewed at 1:1.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-P72

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-P72 resolved 1050 lines per picture height in both the horizontal and vertical axes, which places it among the best of the 3 megapixel / 3X optical zoom cameras we tested.
