We used to Nikon Coolpix S6200 to shoot a specially designed chart in carefully controlled conditions and the resulting images are analysed using the DXO software to generate the date to produce the graphs below.

Signal to noise ratio

A high signal to noise ratio (SNR) indicates a cleaner and better quality image.

JPEG images from the Nikon Coolpix S6200 show that the camera handles noise well at lower sensitivities. At sensitivitis of ISO 800 and above the performance drops, with both the Nikon Coolpix S8200 and Canon Powershot 220 HSshowing better results from this value for signal to noise ratio.

Dynamic range

This chart indicates that the Nikon Coolpix S6200's JPEGs compare well with the Samsung WB700, but are at least 1ev lower than the Canon Powershot 220 HS and Nikon Coolpix S8200.
