Nikon Coolpix S9300 Review

 

The Nikon Coolpix S9300 ($349) is a compact, GPS-equipped travel zoom camera. It features an 18X optical zoom lens, 16 Megapixel CMOS sensor, a high resolution 3-inch LCD display, Full HD video recording and, of course, a GPS receiver.

Nikon Coolpix S9300

 

The Nikon Coolpix S9300 is a compact shooter with a sharp 18x zoom lens and a GPS, but slow start up time and muddy image quality at higher ISOs make it a tough camera to recommend.

Sharp lens. 6fps burst shooting. GPS. Good control layout.

Muddy images at medium ISO settings. Slow to start.

Performance and Conclusions The S9300 is one of the slower cameras to start and shoot that we've tested as of late—it took a full 3 seconds from hitting the power button to capturing a shot. It does a little bit better in terms of shutter lag, managing...

Nikon Coolpix S9300 review

 

The Nikon Coolpix S9300 is a modest update to 2011's S9100 . It's basically the same camera, but with increased resolution -- 16 megapixels up from 12 -- and built-in GPS for geotagging your photos. The latter comes in handy for travel or if you just...

The Nikon Coolpix S9300 has fast shooting performance, a wide, long lens in a pocketable body, and several fun and useful shooting modes that help you get the best shot without much effort.

Competing models from Canon and Panasonic have longer lenses and more shooting options for the same suggested retail price and the S9300's photos aren't the sharpest when viewed at larger sizes.

The compact Nikon Coolpix S9300 is a good choice for anyone after a pure point-and-shoot experience and a long zoom lens. But, depending on needs, you might want to wait for a price drop.

Nikon Coolpix S9300 Review

 

This pocketable point-and-shoot packs a lot of power, sophistication and ease of use in a small package. Its 18X zoom and ultra-fast burst modes will get you shots you would not get otherwise, and make for a lot of fun in the process. However, image...

Auto focus is not always fast ; Image quality could be better ; Battery must be charged in camera ; Battery life is low ; Low battery indicator appears too late

($349) is a compact, GPS-equipped travel zoom camera. It features an 18X optical zoom lens, 16 Megapixel CMOS sensor, a high resolution 3-inch LCD display, Full HD video recording and, of course, a GPS receiver

So there you have the differences between the S9100 and S9300. Aside from the higher resolution sensor and GPS, there isn't a huge difference. If you noticed, the battery life on the S9300 has dropped considerably (and I believe that number is...

Nikon Coolpix S9300 Review: Ready to Roll

 

Today's point-and-shoot digital cameras are (usually) small enough to drop in a shirt pocket, tough enough to go just about anywhere, and they reliably produce first-rate images with only minimal effort from the shooter. The new Nikon Coolpix S9300...

Compact 18x zoom, 1080p movie mode, Large, hi-res 3.0-inch 921k-dot LCD

Expensive, No manual exposure options, Fuzzy images at the telephoto end of that awesome 18x zoom

Nikon COOLPIX S9300

 

Sharp and versatile 18x optical zoom ; Very good results at high ISOs ; Easy operation and good, accurate Auto mode

Soft images with mottled details even at base ISO ; Unimpressive autofocus that often gives false or failed locks ; Frustratingly slow flash recharge ; No manual modes

Nikon Coolpix S9300 Review: Sleek and Slow

 

Monitoring the Coolpix lineup closely over the last half decade, I've come to the conclusion that Nikon likes to stick to its guns. The Nikon Coolpix S9300 is nearly identical to its predecessors, which includes last year's S9100, in fact…

Nikon Coolpix S9300 Review

 

The Nikon Coolpix S9300 is definite performer. Its 18x optical zoom coupled up with the lens based vibration reduction system allow for great hand-held shots (provided there is enough light). The build quality is superb and for those who like bells and...

Excellent zoom range with effective stabilization, Effective Scene modes, Compact form factor, Macro mode is very effective

No PASM mode, No option to turn off in-camera noise reduction
