Summary: While the S9300 is certainly a capable compact camera, in a competitive marketplace, the S9300 struggles to stand out. Unfortunately it’s lacking in advanced functionality, while a few image quality and usability issues are irksome. So, while its certainly a compact worthy of consideration it just misses out on ranking up there with the very best.
Pros: Good LCD screen, nicely designed, general image quality good
Cons: Sluggish in use, lack of advanced functionality or manual shooting modes, slight issue with fringing and over-sharpening
Conclusion: For a camera that is small enough to take anywhere the Nikon Coolpix S9300 has a lot of features packed into it. If you are planning to take a holiday GPS tracking will tell you where you were when a picture was taken. The length of the zoom lens also gives you plenty of scope when it comes to picture opportunities.
