Good camera, could use some updates.,
This review is from: Nikon Coolpix S9300 16.0 MP Digital Camera - Black (Discontinued by Manufacturer) (Electronics)
Bought this camera since i lost my canon powershot sd900. I only buy canon products but since nikon has been advertising the heck out of their products i thought i give it a chance. Overall this camera takes awesome photos. The in camera features are great as well. My only problem is that in order to review your photos you have to turn on the camera you just can't press the review button. When you do take a photo it takes forever for the preview to disappear. You can either have it on or off. With canon it gave you the option of 1,2 or 3 second preview. The last thing is that the flash is in an awkward place but as i was looking at the canon website every company is going to that format. I would recommend this camera to someone though.

If you hold down the review button for a second or so, the camera will turn on and go directly into review mode.

and when previewing an image after shot, just tap the button and the preview goes away.

Yes I was looking for exactly what this comment addressed. I have a Nikon Coolpix s6100 and it also takes very fine pix but ...... I wanted to replace it for the exact reason that was addressed in the comment. It takes forever and I have missed a number of photo ops, due to the long length of time it takes the preview to disappear and the camara is ready for another shot.
It seems though that this Nikon s9300 is no better than the Nikon s6100 that I already have. I am looking for a like camara that allows a faster rate of pix taking. These just appear too slow.
I also have very expensive Olympic camara but it does not date the pix which the small more convenient Nikon does.

As janissima said, you can just tap the shutter release button and the review image will immediately go away and you'll be ready for your next shot. There's go need to wait for it to disappear by itself.
Alternatively, you can set the camera for burst mode (it's right there on your mode dial) and the camera will take pix rapid fire when you hold the button down. There's certainly no reason to complain about the camera being "too slow." Your missed photos are your own fault. You just haven't bothered to learn anything about the camera's capabilities.

Hi Rcubed, you can view pictures without turning the camera on by holding down the green playback button for about 2 seconds.

Would it surprise you to know that even the top of the line Nikon professional cameras must be on to preview your shot? Of course, the preview comes up right after you TAKE a shot.

Need to ask a question....is there a delay time between taking shots? I have a Sony camera that is great, but the delay between shots drives me crazy. I'm missing pictures while it "processes." I want an instant repeat camera. Is the Coolpix 9300 that camera?

As mentioned above, you can just set the mode dial to burst mode and then it will shoot continuously, shot after shot, as long as you hold the shutter release button down.
