Nikon Coolpix P300 - Featured User ReviewI was pleased to see Footski’s review for the Nikon Coolpix P300 compact camera show up recently. The Nikon P300’s super-fast f/1.8 aperture lens sets it apart from all but one compact camera (the Olympus XZ-1). It’s a very serious camera in a deceptively small point-and-shoot sized body. I’m glad to give it some extra attention by making Footski’s P300 review a Featured User Review. Of course, I couldn’t have done that if he didn’t write a good review. So thanks, Footski, for taking the time to give us such a well-written, thoughtful review.

More about that later.

The camera is beautiful to look at and handle with a rear screen that is pin sharp and still viewable, even in bright sunlight, something we get a lot of here in the south of Spain. It has a 12 mp sensor, which is ample and uses one SD card as it’s memory, although it does have a small internal memory should your card get full for any reason. The lens is a super fast f1.8, making it outstanding in low light, although to be critical it is only f1.8 at the widest zoom setting, decreasing as the zoom increases… (read more)
