Nikon Coolpix S6300 Digital Camera Review$199.95
- Image Quality
Despite its 16-megapixel sensor and 10x zoom range, the images the S6300 produces are decidedly mediocre. Sharpness is best at full wide angle, but it's never great and it relies heavily on in-camera oversharpening. Chromatic aberrations are a real problem, leaving any high-contrast object with annoying purple or cyan fringing. The 10x zoom is certainly useful, but sadly image quality is the worst at the long end of the range. In bright light, a tendency toward overexposure can ruin many shots. Low-light shooting suffers from over-aggressive noise reduction. Video is actually pretty good in bright light, but when it gets dim, things get grim.
