Nikon Coolpix S6300 Digital Camera Review$199.95
At its widest focal length, the Coolpix S6300 produces pretty sharp results, albeit with moderate-to-strong in-camera software sharpening applied (up to 35% above "normal"). As you zoom in toward middle focal lengths, resolution figures start to drop pretty sharply. The edges in particular are awful, though the center holds up fairly well. By the time you get to the maximum 10x zoom position (250mm film equivalent), sharpness is pretty dire across the entire frame. This is probably due to a combination of compromised lens design, diffraction, and in-camera distortion correction, which tends to lower resolution in the corners. More on how we test sharpness.
