Resolving Fine Lines

For our resolution test, we reset the camera to its default settings and then recorded the image in the highest quality JPG mode with +0.7 EV applied. Manual WB was used. For more information, refer to our Testing Procedures page. Below are 200% crops of the test. Click on a crop to see the full chart.

In both the horizontal and vertical crops above, the S60 retains its line clarity out to about the 13 mark. While the vertical crop shows just a bit better performance, both move to extinction by 15. In short, the S60 showed impressive resolution performance in our test.

    I sell cameras so I get a hands on feeling of all cameras, even though I dont do such detailed tests to determine which camera is better than the other it is generally seen that consumers like the look and feel of Canon cameras, I print 8"X10" to see which camera shoots good pictures, so far Canon brand cameras have truly impressed me, even though I personally have a Nikon Reply

    Nice review. I have the S30 and it is still kicking just fine. I have yet to find a reason to really upgrade. I think once SLR cameras come within my price range, I will jump for one of them. Reply

    Was just going to say something about the last line in the review, but the first poster beat me to it.

    Yeah, and thanks for the "easter egg"... Nice picture. :)

    while i pretty much despise all Canon cameras, it was nice to see a "test shot" of Anand and Vinney at his wedding!

    Great easter egg!
