Editors Didn't Like

  • Poor image stabilization, Subpar battery life, Only average image and video quality
  • Sluggish in use, lack of advanced functionality or manual shooting modes, slight issue with fringing and oversharpening
  • Muddy images at medium ISO settings, Slow to start
  • Expensive, No manual exposure modes, Stability issues at telephoto
  • Competing models from Canon and Panasonic have longer lenses and more shooting options for the same suggested retail price and the S9300's photos aren't the sharpest when viewed at larger sizes
