The Nikon Coolpix S9300 Digital Camera (Black) is born to travel--with you. A 16MP CMOS sensor and a sharp 18x Nikkor 25-450mm (equivalent in 35mm format) in a tiny (2.5x4.3x1.3"/6.2x10.8x3.06cm) and featherweight (7.6 oz/214g) body = the ultimate compact travel camera.
The CMOS sensor gives you greatly improved low-light performance and reduced noise and the 25-450mm lens can easily handle any situation you encounter, from ultra wide-angle landscape to portraits to unapproachable wildlife. Optical VR image stabilization keeps your photos rock solid, without any shaking or blurring, even using the longest telephoto settings, or in low-light, slow shutter speed situations. The high-resolution 921K-dot 3" monitor is crisp and clear, for composing and reviewing your images. Dazzling full 1080p HD video with stereo sound will bring your memories back in pristine condition (you can even take a still photo while shooting video). And the S9300 knows how to turn even dicey lighting situations into great images, with modes like Night Landscape, Night Portrait and Backlighting HDR. A built-in neutral density filter gives you even greater latitude in daylight shooting.
Built-in GPS records your shooting locations and tracks the route you take. A map displays your current location while shooting, plus Points of Interest (POI) locations--an electronic compass displays the camera's orientation when the photo was taken and records the location for viewing later on your computer.
17 Scene modes provide optimal settings for common photographic subjects. In-camera processing offers you lots of creative choices without using image-processing software: filter effects like Nostalgic Sepia; High-Contrast Monochrome; Selective Color; High Key; Low Key; and Soft Effect; the ability to crop and re-size photos in-camera; D-Lighting for improving high-contrast scenes; and skin softening for improved portraits. The EXPEED C2 processor delivers improved image quality and processing speed. So, wherever you go with the S9300, there you are--ready to bring back great images, no matter what the conditions.

I use this camera mostly to take pictures and video of my puppy. The small size makes it easy to keep it close at hand. I've foud that it takes good indoor videos with just a couple table lamps on when using the Night Landscape mode. Without the extra lights the pup doesn't even know im shooting.
This camera was just what I was looking for. I have a 2 year old and was getting ready to welcome our second child into the world. I was looking for a camera that could capture my kids in their element and their only setting is go go go. I needed a camera that took the picture quickly and stopped motion. This camera did just that an so much more. I couldn't be happier.
