Excellent camera with few flaws.,
This review is from: Nikon COOLPIX S9300 Compact Digital Camera - Black (16MP, 18x Optical Zoom) 3 inch LCD (Camera)
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.
