Outdated by today's standards and at a price that seemed expensive at the time when we bought this camera ($325 US) - the F300 is still cranking out nice photos with natural looking color, easy to find batteries, and a simple, easy to navigate menu. Viewing straight/not edited fotos on a current Vista based PC w/Intel core 2 duo w/19" screen @max MP & Superfine setting, the image quality is surprisingly better than ever. Problems: Slow but we are still getting our money's worth from this ...

Excellent camera. The Image quality is second to none. I have just updated to the Canon SLR D350 but cannot myself to part with the F300.

Actually I bought this camera second-handed, but it doesn't matter too much. I like the mamual settings of this camera, which is enough for a novice. Plus, I don't really like the low-tech memonry card cover. Problems: Flash seems to be kind of weak. I had trouble shooting people around a table during dinner. People at the further end of the table, about two meters away, have dark faces. The "scenes " in auto mode does not really offer good picture. Sluggish focusingThe instruction book ...

I bought this camera in January 2004 as my first d-cam after more than 25 years of amateur SLR-photographing. The features of the camera are amazing, as well as the results. I must recognize that the Auto-features do their job very well in most situations and lead to sharp and natural color balanced pictures. But one have to take in consideration at every time the time that the camera takes for zooming in or out, as well as focusing. On the other hand, planning your shots, predicting them ...

Fantastic camera. I am particularly impressed with the manual modes, although manual focus would be nicer on a seperate dial, but if I wanted that I should have gotten one of the semi pro cameras. Great camera to keep in your pocket. Quite respectable results when needed more seriously. Problems: goes through batteries very quickly and I use 2100mAh NiMH.

This is an excellent camera with tons of features from full auto, semi-auto, to full manual. As a serious point-and-shot, I find it the best for the money. It has everything you need plus a lot more, and I am only beginning to explore the advanced features after nearly 1-yr of use. Image quality is excellent, but flash photo is weak - need close up due to weak built-in flash. Auto focus works great in most situations. Problems: I noticed same image artifacts (horizontal bands) in about 20 ...

Never had any problems with single-handed use covering the sensor or flash!! Overall an excellent piece of kit with superb image quality. I've recently been using Noise Ninja and Sharpraw to hone the pics and the end product is absolutely amazing!!! This little cam has even put me off buying a more expensive SLR-like cam! Problems: Seems to be a little picky with the brand of battery used... sometimes shows premature low battery (but usually goes on to take many shots even with low batt ...

Flash and sensor are in a very bad location. Problems: I am not sure why no one mentioned this. Holding the camera with one hand makes your fingers block the flash and the sensor. Very inconvinient.
