Do not purchase anything from Crawford Superstore !!!!!

Gardengal, Amazon
25 August 2013
  • Summary: I dropped my Nikon s9100 and damaged it beyond repair. In a hurry, I went on Amazon and purchased a replacement, the Nikon s9300, a brand new one. I have been shopping with Amazon for years without any problems. (I did not know this was coming from Crawford Superstore). When the box arrived we opened it - and to our first surprise, it contained another box (not your normal Nikon packaging) that stated "Factory Renew"!

Worst camera ever

William A. Fuller "The Old Bald Dude", Amazon
15 May 2013
  • Summary: Bought a refurb from Amazon owned Woot.com. Horrible experience, and even worse camera. Can't send it back, because that's the way Woot works. Nikon says it meets manufacturer specs. But, I'm very experienced with both DSLRs & Point & Shoots and I have maybe 30 to 40 of 500+ shots that I managed to get in focus. Stuff that inexpensive cameras have no problem with are impossible with this turkey.

Waste of money

Amazon Customer, Amazon
6 April 2013
  • Summary: I bought this camera because I wanted higher megapixel and zoom range than my old Panasonic Lumix and Sony point and shoot. I picked this based on how many positive reviews there were. It was my first Nikon and it will be my last one. I will never again waste my money on that brand! $349 town the toilet. Many other reviews address the problems as well. If you're shooting in daylight and the subject doesn't move, the camera is perfect.

Don't buy this camera

Barbara, Amazon
21 February 2013
  • Summary: I purchased this camera in 10/2012. It has a delay which causes the loss of many pictures. The battery is terrible. After only a few month, the battery won't hold a charge at all. I used to think Nikon meant quality, but this camera is terrible. I recommend you look else where.

Camera took 5 pictures and died each day

For What it is Worth... "Just My thoughts", Amazon
19 January 2013
  • Summary: They say never go on vacation with new shoes and a new camera. Now I know why. Camera battery would look full and then took about 5 pictures before it died each day. Each night I charged the camera. Each morning the battery was full and after 5 pictures it went to half life and then died. I ended up using my smart phone for the rest of the trip.

Horrible Camera That's Horribly Slow and Takes Horrible Pictures

MFA, Amazon
7 December 2012
  • Summary: This camera is horrible. It has a nice set of features but takes crummy pictures indoors at any distance, and the zoom is worthless outdoors past 5X. I've taken a hundred pictures using a Class 10 card and probably have a handful I'd be willing to share and print. Perhaps the worst thing about this camera is how slow it is = HORRIBLY SLOW! Tried to use it to take holiday card shots of my kids. Pressed half way down to focus then pressed... kept pressing... re-pressed...

  • Summary: I just decided to upgrade on my Coolpix S8100 so I bought the S9300 and went on vacation down to the Florida Keys. As I was taking pictures the camera deleted the first ones I took. I lost about 100 pics and I know they were the best ones. Brought it back and ordered the Coolpix S8200. I will advise you on this one. My sister in law has it and loves it.

Download cable connection flimsy

C. wagoner "ottersea", Amazon
27 October 2012
  • Summary: Bought this in June 2012 and after 5 months the cable connection failed. I should say it did not fail but because it was so flimsy when I inserted the cable into the camera the pins bent and now do not work. So I have a camera that I cannot download the photos or charge the battery. You would think that a name like Nikon would make something that costs over $300 a bit more robust then this flimsy piece of junk. Will never get another coolpix from them.
