- Dynamic Range
We don't factor dynamic range results into our overall score for point-and-shoots, but we've recently started to test it when we can. Predictably, the P510 earned a pretty mediocre result. At base ISO, we measured just 3.69 stops of the dynamic range. In real world terms, this means the P510 will struggle shooting scenes with bright and shadowy areas in the same frame—usually at the expense of bleaching out the bright areas.
More on how we test dynamic range.
We only recently started to test point-and-shoots for their dynamic range, so we don't have other superzooms to compare it with. We do imagine that this is a pretty typical result.
