Nikon Coolpix S9300 digital camera review

Before setting up on the FujiFilm FinePix X100 as my camera of choice when it comes to wanting a small pocket camera, I purchased the Nikon Coolpix S9300. I was not satisfied. Below image examples might look good, but in order to obtain these, I had to make heavy image manipulation in the digital darkroom (like smart blur and heavy levels correction). The original images were grainy, soft and pixelated, while the colors were dull in plain sunny midday.      However, what made me try the camera in the first place, was the multitude of shooting scene modes (16 scene modes), the small build (pocket size compact) and the high zoom (18x optical zoom).

Nikon D40x SLR Digital Camera Review

There are about 2 weeks now since I have the Nikon D40x and I am extremely pleased with it. The main reasons are: fast shooting and crystal clear images with natural colors, very low noise and plenty of sharpness. There are 2 more things I like about it: the fact that I can immediately delete a picture if I want without entering the playback mode (The length of time the image remains on the monitor is determined by option.) and the outstanding battery life (I believe I reached around 600 shots before recharging – and recharging time is a little bit less than 2 hours).
