Summary: The Nikon COOLPIX S9300 is definitely one of the new Nikon cameras more attractive market for both the camera body very thin and robust, which features purely globe-trotter (GPS and map onto the world) that intrigue an audience extremely diverse. Among the most interesting features, we can find the 3D shooting mode and the simplified overview to 360 ° / 180 ° in addition to the presence of a convenient mode dial or 17 scene modes available.
Pros: Map of the world; EXPEED C2, 18x optical zoom NIKKOR; Machine body extremely subtle; GPS system; 3D shooting mode, System Lens-shift vibration reduction; Compatibility with Eye-Fi X2; 16 MP CMOS sensor
Summary: While the Nikon Coolpix S9300 represents an excellent value and offers a nice point-and-shoot feature set, its photo quality is poor relative to the competition, with mediocre low light shooting and below-par battery life.
Pros: Good value for the money, 18X, 25 - 450 mm optical zoom lens in a compact, generally well-built body, Optical image stabilization, Sharp 3-inch LCD display with 921k pixels, Fast autofocus in good light, GPS receiver with compass and large landmark database, Scene Auto Selector picks a shooting mode for you, Plenty of scene modes and special effects, Wide selection of burst modes, some of which are pretty good, Redeye not a problem, Full HD movie mode with stereo soun...
Cons: Noisy and soft photos have noticeable detail loss, even at base ISO of 125, Strong highlight clipping at times, No manual controls, save for white balance, Low light focusing not great, Below average battery life, Flash is slow to recharge, Not great for night shots, due to 1 sec shutter speed limit and lack of manual controls, Photos taken in portrait orientation are not rotated automatically, Flimsy door over battery/memory card compartment, Internal battery chargin...
Excerpt: Today's point-and-shoot digital cameras are (usually) small enough to drop in a shirt pocket, tough enough to go just about anywhere, and they reliably produce first-rate images with only minimal effort from the shooter. The new Nikon Coolpix S9300 (which replaces last year's popular S9100) could be the poster child for this class of camera.
Summary: The Nikon Coolpix S9300 is definite performer. Its 18x optical zoom coupled up with the lens based vibration reduction system allow for great hand-held shots (provided there is enough light). The build quality is superb and for those who like bells and whistles, there's even a GPS chip. Although for a camera that costs 19K, the image quality leaves us a tad disappointed.
Pros: Excellent zoom range with effective stabilization, Effective Scene modes, Compact form factor, Macro mode is very effective
Cons: No PASM mode, No option to turn off in-camera noise reduction
Conclusion: For the most part, the S9300 brings nothing particularly new or exciting to the compact camera market but instead offers itself up as a solid and simplified overall performer: a Jack of all trades if you will and there’s certainly nothing wrong with that. Whilst not without its few small faults, the S9300 represents good value overall and is an ideal point-and-shoot unit for those looking for an attractive an user-friendly compact camera in the sub $400.00 price range.
Conclusion: La Nikon Coolpix S9300 es ideal para quienes buscan una cámara compacta muy fácil de usar y divertida, ya que cuenta con varias opciones de efectos y funciones automáticas que te dan las mejores características para cada toma.
Pros: La velocidad de disparo es muy buena y la variedad de filtros y efectos hacen que la cámara sea divertida.
Cons: El zoom es un poco corto comparado con otros modelos de las mismas características.
Excerpt: Har hatt kameraet i noen dager nå og er svært Positivt overrasket... Funksjoner og bildeskarphet er et kvantesprang i forhold til mitt 5 år gamle Ricoh R5. Fryktet at bruk av GPS ville tære hardt på batteriet, men det ser ikke ut til å være så ille som fryktet. Men må nok lade adskillig oftere enn nå enn med det forrige kameraet.
Ulempen er at det bruker lang tid på å finne gps-posisjonen etter at kameraet er slått på, så det fleste bilder blir tatt uten posisjonsdata.
Pros: Bra bilder med GPS posisjon
Cons: Tar noen minutter før GPS posisjonen er funnet.
