Nikon Coolpix P80 - Test shots – Exposure evaluation



View All

”Here are some general test shots to help evaluate the camera’s overall image quality.”


Exposures are generally very good indeed


Colours are punchy and saturated in the right light


Less vivid tones are rendered well


The white balance is sometimes fooled, this image is a bit too warm


In black and white mode, I used a digital red filter to darken the sky. It’s less effective than real filters


With D-Lighting off, this image is quite contrasty


After applying D-Lighting, the shadows are lifted but noise has appeared (also notice the purple fringing along the roof)
