2012 Nikon Coolpix S9300, S6300, S4300, S3300 Camera Price, Review
It’s not been all that long since Nikon last augmented its Coolpix S-series, and now the camera maker’s at it again, adding another four to the point-and-shoot range. Starting at the bottom end is the S3300, which definitely keeps things simple: 16 megapixels, 6x zoom, 19 picture modes and 720p is what you’ll get for the $140 asking price. An extra $30 lands you the S4300, which adds touchscreen control. Stepping up the ladder, we have the S6300 at $200, which includes a 16 megapixel CMOS sensor, 10x zoom and an Easy Panorama mode for those 180- and 360-degree vistas. Video also jumps up a notch to a full 1080p. Assuming a $350 price tag doesn’t seem too lofty, you might like the S9300 — it has the same 16 megapixel CMOS sensor as the S6300, but also throws in GPS for geotagging, and a generous 18x zoom, giving it a 25-450mm range. There’s a limited range of colors for each model, and availability is pegged for February, but hit the PR after the break if you want the full rundown.
