Macro focusing is promised from around 10cm, but we found many occasions where the camera was able to lock onto much closer subjects.

Colours captured by the Nikon Coolpix S6300 are bright and vibrant without being over the top. This was also shot in mixed lighting conditions, with the camera's metering doing a good job of providing a decent exposure.

Macro focusing enables you to create images with a pleasing depth of field effect. Since this is quite a basic model, you don't have the opportunity to adjust the aperture.

Here you can see a panoramic image mode. If you look at the full size image, you'll see there's quite a dramatic drop in quality, and there are places where the image hasn't been stitched together correctly.

Here we can see the full extent of the Nikon Coolpix S6300's zoom range. Starting at 25mm (equivalent), the lens can zoom in 10x, to 250mm (equivalent). Activating the digital zoom results in a loss of quality, but it does provide a whopping 1000mm equivalent focal length.

Filters

The Nikon S6300 provides a small number of filters to experiment with. These are applied to the image as it is taken, and as such cannot be removed.
