Very unimpressed both with construction quality and picture quality

Stan, Amazon

  • Summary: Battery/card door doesn't have an effective detent so the door opens on occasion. Autofocus works most the time, though sometimes it just can't seem to get it right. One of the reasons I went with this model was I expected the GPS data to be included in the exif photo file. Even with the GPS logging running, the location coordinates don't later show up in the photo info (iphoto 09), Camera reports no A-GPS file on the card, so I'm guessing the satellite almanac isn't...

2nd Nikon that just up and died...Burial tomorrow in my back yard :(

  • Summary: This was the second camera that up and died for whatever reason. I WAS IN LOVE WITH BOTH NIKONS...THEIR USER FRIENDLINESS AND FUN AFFECTS...B U T ...this one takes the cake. This one can't be bumped or jiggled or be used at the beach where there is moisture (neither could the other one). IT CANNOT TAKE THE SLIGHTEST BEATING AT ALL! It's so fragile.

Mostly good

Patti Vanlerberghe, Amazon

  • Summary: I love almost everything about this camera like the size, pictures, features, great zoom BUT what I hate is how long it takes to " recharge", or get ready to take the next picture. Unless you have it on a series setting, you can't just keep clicking. Sometimes very frustrating.

Uneven performance

Richard Stern, Amazon
22 June 2013
  • Summary: On the plus side the S9300 takes good pictures. On the negative side, the processor is flaky and gets "stuck" from time to time, leaving me unable to turn on the flash, or fixing the distance controls in a certain position, etc. This happens intermittently and has been enormously frustrating. Resetting the controls to the factory defaults does not always solve the problem.

Good, not great

vincent mangia, Amazon

  • Summary: Pics and settings are fine, but i found its gets slow in taking lots of pics in sequence. Basically, the time it takes to get to snap the next picture. Sometimes when turning it on, it doesn't want to focus, and you have to tap the shutter button to get it to clear up. All in all, i've had much better cameras that were cheaper.

No paperwork provided in ENGLISH

Sandra S. Jarrell, Amazon
22 February 2013
  • Summary: What I disliked about the camera was that ALL paperwork other than what was on a computer disk was not in English. I had to call Nikon to request the paperwork and was told I had to submit purchase documents online and that it would take time to get all the paperwork that should have come with the camera in ENGLISH in the first instance.

Not picking up detail on close ups.

Karl, Cameta

  • Excerpt: I wanted to use it for listing small items on Ebay but it is not picking up the details. I have another camera an Olympus SP-310 it only has 7.1 megapixel but gives a lot better detail. I don't know what the problem is perhaps I am doing something wrong.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Short Lag Time, Small / Compact

Not the best...

The DeVillers "Kzoo", Amazon
17 January 2013
  • Summary: I bought this camera (not at Amazon) for too much money. I have a Nikon SLR (D70s) and it continues to work very nicely. The battery cover latch has a hair trigger, will open if you just brush against it - I ended up putting a piece of electrical tape over it to keep it from unlatching. The function knob turns too easily. It is very easy to simply nudge the wheel and end up in a different shooting mode. The pop up flash bothers me, but it does take good flash pictures.

  • Summary: Every time you take a night picture it takes forever to allow you to take another, with regular day pictures still not fast enough. Too slow for what it cost.
