Nikon CoolPix L19 and L20 - Test Shots – Exposure Evaluation



View All

”Here are some general test shots to help evaluate the camera’s overall image quality, including dynamic range, colour rendition and the zoom range of the lens. Some pictures may be clicked to download the full size original image. ”


Again, this was shot on the L20, equivalent to 38mm. The L19 is slightly narrower, equivalent to 41mm.


The L20’s telephoto end is equivalent to 136mm. Again the L19 is slightly narrower at 145mm.


Default colour reproduction is rather garish and over-saturated. The yellow flowers (do I look like a botanist?) are just featureless blobs.


Dynamic range on the L20 is poor, with little shadow detail. Oddly the L19 is not really any better.
