Nikon CoolPix P50 - Test shots – Exposure evaluation



View All

”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 28mm, useful for wide panoramic shots.


The telephoto end is equivalent to 102mm, no better than most 3x zoom compacts.


Dynamic range is pretty good, with good shadow detail although there are burned-out highlights.


This is the same shot, but processed using the D-Lighting function in playback mode.


Close-range flash exposure is well metered, and the range isn’t bad either.
