Summary: I specifically bought this because it had the GPS feature and it would not show the location when I downloaded it to my own photo program. I contacted Nikon and they said the pictures had to be downloaded to their own picture program (which is included). I loaded it on my computer and it still didn't show the location of the pictures and was very confusing to use.
Summary: Not sure if I am doing anything wrong, but this camera does not focus that well. I feel that there is some kind of setting that I am missing to set it up so it takes a clear picture. I have a Canon that takes the perfect picture every time. I thought I would try the Nikon due to the great reviews. I wish I could send it back.
Summary: The S9300 is a terrible camera. Pictures are blurry, out fo focus, extremely slow shutter speed. I can't believe they put their name on and released such a bad piece of equipment. I thought it felt like it was better built than some of the competitor cameras in the store, but the photos are awful.
Summary: After tinkering with the settings on the S-9300, I got it to take pretty nice shots. Photos is the reason for buying it. But a few days ago, I wanted to test out the movie feature... it does not work! According to the manual, you just push the record button in any picture mode and it starts recording. I bought a class 10 memory card, so it should do movies just fine. Than yesterday my "Playback" button goes off-line.
Summary: Bought this camera about two months ago. The lens cover that opens automatically on start up lasted about a week before it wouldn't retract all the way. This would leave a small corner cut off when zoomed all the way out. This camera is also sluggish and slow all around and only takes mediocre pictures without good contrast or color saturation. I would not recommend this camera to anyone.
Summary: Camera takes great pictures, so I gave it 2 stars. Other than that, I really dislike this camera. I have to push the power button 2-3 times before it turns on so I have missed multiple picture opportunities. I'm usually in such a panic at that point that I forget about the pop-up flash and it gets stuck under my finger.
