Nikon Coolpix S9300
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.
Travelers who want a low-priced, GPS-equipped camera with a nice zoom range, and photo quality best suited for small prints or web viewing.
Photographers seeking top-notch photo quality, manual controls, and good low light performance. The S9300 provides none of these things.
Nikon COOLPIX S9300 review

While the S9300 is certainly a capable compact camera, in a competitive marketplace, the S9300 struggles to stand out. Unfortunately it’s lacking in advanced functionality, while a few image quality and usability issues are irksome. So, while its certainly a compact worthy of consideration it just misses out on ranking up there with the very best.
DCRP Review: Nikon Coolpix S9300

The Coolpix S9300 is a decent GPS-equipped travel zoom camera, but there are several competitors that I think are better choices. While it does offer a nice point-and-shoot feature set, the mediocre photo quality, poor battery life, and other annoyances prevent me from recommending it.
