Review summary from DPReview
While the Nikon Coolpix S9300 represents an excellent value and offers a nice point-and-shoot feature set, its photo quality is poor relative to the competition, with mediocre low light shooting and below-par battery life.
Scoring is relative only to the other products in the same category.

From the Manufacturer
Incredible reach and versatility
18x optical Zoom-NIKKOR ED glass lens
Explore new horizons with a far-reaching 18x zoom. Zoom in to create a colorful still life display of trinkets and charms inside a covered market, then zoom out and frame a stunning wide-angle sunset. The S9200 boasts an 18x optical Zoom-NIKKOR ED glass lens (25–450mm) with optical VR Image Stabilization, which minimizes the chance of blur when shooting photos and movies.
Superb low-light shooting
High-resolution 16.0 MP CMOS sensor
The S9200's 16.0 megapixel CMOS sensor expertly manages high-resolution imagery, delivering the exceptional image quality you expect from Nikon. Even when shooting in low light, the photos and movies you create will be so vibrant, they'll transport you back to the instant they were created. Nikon's backside-illuminated CMOS sensor technology increases the flow of light to the sensor's surface, thereby yielding improved image quality and reduced noise.
Memories in motion
Full HD (1080p) movies with 18x zoom, continuous autofocus and stereo sound
Recall the sights and sounds of the nightlife in Cancun or the unique mood of a rain forest. With a single touch of a button, record Full HD (1080p) movies with stereo sound. Continuous autofocus keeps your moving subject in focus, and the S9200's full 18x optical zoom range with two-speed control is available during movie recording. Vary the mood by adding in-camera Special Effects, or capture slow- or fast-motion movies. Then watch your movies on an HDTV via the built-in HDMI port.
Add your personal touch
Get creative with in-camera effects
Add your personal touch to everything you capture. Apply in-camera special effects such as Low Key, High Key, Nostalgic Sepia, even Selective Color, and put a little variety into images and movies. Bring new creative looks to still images by applying a filter effect like Fisheye or Miniature. The best part: you can instantly share your creations with fellow travelers as they gather around the S9200's large, high-resolution 3.0-inch LCD monitor.
Panoramas at the touch of a button
Easy Panorama Mode for stunning panoramic photos
Creating expansive panoramic photos has never been easier. Easy Panorama Mode combines multiple shots into a seamless 180° or 360° panoramic image. Begin by focusing on your starting point, then start panning across the scene. Once the S9200 detects your direction, the shooting starts and the images begin stitching together in-camera.

Top Customer Reviews
1. S9300 will not lock focus when zoomed at or near it's maximum.
2. Selecting one of the Auto ISO ranges...125-800 ISO causes the camera to select very low shutter speeds, so that even with vibration reduction, if you are shooting people, the imgages are soft...appearing OOF...out of focus. (Unacceptable for this price range.)
3. The facial recognition feature, if used on anything but faces...will most often select something other than what you want to focus on...and since this is a menu driven feature, if you're switching between sceens, like at a birthday party, it's a pain to use.
4. Generally speaking, the images leave a lot to be desired across the board. And, this is the general consensus of online reviews...rating the camera a "C" as very average. I have to agree.
5. Portrait mode is way too cool...and there is no way to adjust the color temp in any mode except Auto. Or from the menu when in Auto...again, for the price, this is unacceptable.
6. And this is a biggie...I have lost confidence in the camera's ability to capture the shots that I want.
I tried to like it...I shot over 200 images...and very few were keepers. I had a Canon Elf S600...and it took better images than this model...and the Canon S600 is 4 years old.
I have called Nikon and asked for an RMA and am returning S9300 for a refund. Bottom line, for $349.00, this camera is a poor to average performer...yeilding good to mediocre images.
I don't disagree that if you are outside in bright light that it takes pretty good images...but, still not up to my expectations for the price tag.Read more ›
