low light feature is great

Rakuten
25 April 2012
  • Summary: I got wonderful clear pictures in a very low light. Flash light switch to turn it off is great. This camera can take shots in low light thus most time not need flash light. Video takes a longer time to process (than my old canon camera) recording that prevented to take a shot right after.

Mostly good except for some quirks

M. Srivastava, Amazon
21 February 2012
  • Summary: Owned this camera for a week now and already have a few irritants to report. But first the good stuff. 1- Excellent fast f1.8 lens- works better than my canon g12 in low light (g12 is f2.8 only) 2- Love the high res screen 3- Minimalist form/design appeals to me 4- Interesting scene modes- like the...

Decent All-Around Performer But Does Have Issues

Sacha Potter, Amazon
27 October 2011
  • Summary: I needed a camera for days when I didn't want to lug my DSLR around. I've owned two Panasonic travel zoom cameras but wanted something that could produce better low light photos and had full manual controls.

  • Excerpt: Bottomline: Compact camera with manual settings, fast aperture (f1.8), 1080p video & high frame rate. Compared to the other cameras in its class, the P300 is one of the few compacts that offer manual modes: Manual, Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority and Program The lens can open to its widest...

Review from father of young children who also owns a DSLR

PJC "Geek", Amazon
4 October 2011
  • Summary: Chances are that if you're even considering this camera you've already read tons of reviews that reiterate the camera's features and specs. Here's a practical review that I hope you find helpful if you're in the same situation I am. I own a Nikon D90 DSLR camera.

1 October 2011
  • Excerpt: The "expert" reviews (like the one on DPReview) are not so good to P300, but the user reviews on Amazon and other stores are very good. My old compact, Canon Ixus 970 IS (SD 890 IS in the US) died with “lens error” after 2 years and 2 months (2 year warranty was over), so I was searching for another...

  • Excerpt: The P300 is well built, has a magnificent big and bright display, and takes great pictures with no-to-minimal effort. I have had other compact cameras and this one beats them hands down in terms of quality. It's also very fast: you shoot and you actually take "that" picture!

Really happy

Glen, Amazon
16 June 2011
  • Summary: I compared the G12 and the S95 Both may be a bit better camera, but the P300 cam in at $100 cheaper on Amazon. I tried the Video and Continuous shooting (Sports) the only complaint I have is that the screen goes blank during the Continuos shooting and the Zoom isn't functional during video.

Probably the best P&S I've owned. Ever.

F. R. Padilla "frp", Amazon
7 June 2011
  • Summary: I am a Nikon snob. If that turns you off, stop reading now. If not, please continue. Let me start with my disappointments -- no RAW format available, the lens housing juts out from the front (in off mode), the function wheel on the back may accidentally be pressed while turning it.

It's what I wanted

Alan A. Siegel "Al the baker", Amazon
7 June 2011
  • Summary: I wanted a camera with a big lens to obviate need for flash. The P300 allows sharp images during dance performances and at museums without disturbing flash. It also offers a choice from seven images (sports setting) of a child who can't remain still.
