5.0 out of 5 stars Nikon COOLPIX S9300 Compact Digital Camera 20 Oct 2012
Colour Name:Blue|Verified Purchase
I have used the Coolpix range of cameras for a number of years
and each time I have upgraded to a newer version I have never been
disappointed. This holds true for the S9300.
As with all the Coolpix range the S9300 is simple and straight
forward to operate and use but the 18x optical zoom takes it to
another level producing pictures of amazing clarity and detail.
The HD video it takes is also crystal clear and a pleasure to
playback and watch. Another winner from Nikon, highly recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nikon S9300 20 April 2012
Colour Name:Black|Verified Purchase
Why three stars you might wonder, well, this camera does take fantastic pictures & the quick video record function works a treat, but the auto-focus leaves something (a lot) to be desired!

It has trouble focusing both in camera & video mode, and can hunt (not quickly) to find what should be a simple focusing task. In bright sunshine or indoors, it really can struggle. I am disappointed with this as I was expecting quite a bit more from a Nikon. Everything else like lens stabilisation etc works like a dream

I have quite a few cameras from D-SLR's to an old basic point & shoot (P&S) which the S9300 was to replace. As I said before, this camera does take fab photo's (when it focuses) & being that its an full auto camera I can for once stop thinking about settings for exposure & shutter settings etc. It is a shame as the camera has some neat photo functions & effects.

I can't trust this camera enough yet & I'm seriously considering sending it back. It's 50 / 50 at the moment. A few more days & I'll make my decision.

3.0 out of 5 stars Falling short of expectations 9 Jun 2012
Colour Name:Black
I recently bought the Nikon Coolpix S8200, which turned out to be a lovely little gem. I just bought the Nikon Coolpix 9300 thinking it is some sort of a S8200 with 3D, GPS and a better zoom. The dials and functions are more or less equivalent to the S8200, and that's where the similarity ends. The focusing of this camera is turning out to be somewhat of a nightmare, and blurry picture results which negates the 16 megapixel advantage. When it can focus, and I am still trying to find out what are the influencing factors, it does take good pictures. The long zoom works surprisingly well too. I find myself not trusting this camera's focusing ability enough to take it with me on holidays, and seriously thinking about sending it back.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing focussing and battery life 17 Nov 2012
Colour Name:Black
Nikon COOLPIX S9300 Compact Digital Camera - Black (16MP, 18x Optical Zoom) 3 inch LCDI have just got back from a trip to Morocco where this camera had it's first major work out (av 100 images each day over 14 days )since buying it in August.I am very disappointed. To say that audio quality is poor is an understatement. I have filmed several clips of moroccon musicians and it has recorded the film - which all play at a wierdly fast speed- but has not recorded any audio at all. Very disappointing.

Landscape Panoramas shot on video are all out of focus.

More often than not I have had to press the shutter release button twice to be sure to record an image- having discovered that pictures I had thought I had taken were not being saved. Shutter release is slow- witnessed by the number of times somone who was not in shot when composed- is suddenly in shot.

On the subject of battery consumption - generally even with the GPS off batteries rarely lasted more than 2hrs shooting on 8mp -others travelling with me were taking more pictures on eg panasonic and canon compacts and batteries were lasting a full day. I had discovered that problem before I went away so had bought a spare battery but even so...........

I expected the zoom - to be brilliant but more often than not it not would not focus or got stuck out of focus. I quickly discovered the only solution was to remove the battery and reinsert it. Going through the images I have taken over the last 2 weeks I am having to delete a lot of photos taken when zoomed in or out to the maximum extents- they are too fuzzy to be acceptable. Low-light shots eg in souks are not good.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent camera with few flaws. 26 Jun 2012
Colour Name:Black
Usually Nikon would not be my first choice but I have to say this model is quite impressive. Its packed with features which overall work well and give this camera that extra punch for gadget lovers.

The overall look and feel - Not the slimmest of cameras but its still close, I was used to having a very slim small camera so to most this will be a good size not too bulky. The buttons are easily accessible and are not hard to use. Like most new items it can be hard to get used to navigation but really I didn't find it too bad. The thickness only makes the feel of the build better, not top quality but definitely lasting and a good build.

Ease of use - I found it easy to navigate, easy to take pictures. The battery seems to last a decent amount of time but I tend to take more photos than videos. I think this is great for enthusiasts and beginners, it works well in poorly lit places which is an extra bonus because so many cameras seem to fail here either forcing too much light or collecting too little. The rear screen is a good size and provides good viewing. The battery and SD compartments are easy to get to. Most importantly for those quick pics I think the shutter speed is very good.

The commands - Starting up is about average perhaps a little bit quicker would be nicer but it does not take long so it isn't really an issue. There is a nice selection of commands but I would have liked to see a few more effects available but still a good selection.

The image result - I think it produces lovely quality images. Edges could be sharper but overall excellent images. The zoom is also good still providing high quality pictures from a distance.

Overall a great camera with HD and GPS which produces excellent photos and videos. There is however room for improvement where other top quality models will undoubtably fill these gaps.
