*The Nikon Coolpix S500 flaunts 7.1 megapixels on its 1/2.5-inch CCD. To see how effective it is at capturing details, we photographed an industry standard resolution chart and uploaded the images to Imatest software. We photographed the pictures at various exposure settings to make sure we got the sharpest shot possible. Imatest sorted through and analyzed all the images; we are reporting the sharpest of the batch.
