Below and on the next page you will find our studio 'tabletop' comparison between the Canon PowerShot S60 and Samsung Digimax V50 chosen for its similar specification. We have included samples for the lowest and highest ISO settings for each camera (ISO 50 on this page, ISO 400 on the next).

Between these two cameras the overall 'balance' of the image was fairly similar, both had a similar tonal response (contrast and dynamic range) and color saturation (although the S60 was more accurate, the V50's greens appeared too yellow). The S60 also appears to have a better lens, this is especially noticeable near the edges of the frame where the V50 image appears soft and blurred while the S60 maintains good sharpness (impressive for such a tiny lens system). Also evident is Canon's superior image processing which manages to resolve a little more detail as well as maintaining clearer edge detail. Noise levels appear fairly similar between the two.
