Excerpt: It's small enough to keep in jeans pockets & very easy to use. I've taken some really nice scenic type shots on holiday with good light but..... It's quite slow, plus indoor shots & anything moving, it's not so good.
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: Had a few issues: 1. This camera is extremely slow between the shots. 2. When taking photos indoor with the flash colors are very unnatural. 3. Photos look like stabilization is not compensating.
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: 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.
Summary: The camera is easy to use and has a lot of features that I like. I'm impressed with the image stabilization that allows picture taking at 18X without a tripod. I'm disappointed, though, in a few things. First, as advanced as this camera is, it can't sense when pictures are taken in portrait mode and automatically rotate them when they are saved on the computer. A Kodak digital camera I bought about seven years ago had that feature, so it's not something new.
