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.

Summary: The S series of Nikon's Coolpix digital compact cameras are the Stylish options for the fashion conscious.
