IM­AGE QUAL­ITY & PER­FOR­MANCE - NIKON COOLPIX S9900

HWM (Malaysia) - - TEST -

The COOLPIX S9900 ob­vi­ously struck us by how much eas­ier it was to frame and com­pose im­ages from any an­gle thanks to the vari-an­gle LCD, but we were also im­pressed by how ac­tive the aut­o­fo­cus sys­tem was when set to track­ing mode. The in-body sta­bi­liza­tion sys­tem also seemed to work as ad­ver­tised, as we were able to get steady shots at the 750mm (equiv­a­lent) range hand­held. Over­all, the white bal­ance on the cam­era is pretty ac­cu­rate, with­out too much of a color bias in any of the pic­tures, im­por­tant be­cause you can only shoot in JPEG for­mat. Our one ma­jor bug­bear with the cam­era though, is that the ex­po­sure sys­tem seemed to lean very heav­ily to­wards high­light preser­va­tion, leav­ing the im­ages cap­tured look­ing about half to one stop un­derex­posed com­pared to the oth­ers.

The COOLPIX S9900 seems to turn in darker im­ages than the oth­ers.

There’s a lit­tle bit of color noise at ISO 1600.
