UPDATE: The P300 only looks like the S95 and LX5 on the outside. On the inside, where it really matters, the camera has a small sensor and the fast lens is only fast zoomed out. As a result of this information I do not recommend the P300, image samples are less than impressive. Please see my P&S list for better values – Recommended Point and Shoot Cameras
I have several new high-end Point and shoot cameras that I need to blog about – One was just leaked. The Nikon P300. Serious competitor to the Canon S95 and Lumix LX5 lines – P300 Specs:
- 12.2MP CMOS sensor
- 4.2x zoom
- f/1.8 aperture
- 3″ display
- full manual settings
- ISO up to 3200
- EXPEED C2 processing
- new in-camera panorama generator
- full HD 1080p
- price: $329.95
The price looks great, the S95 is currently stuck at $399. What we don’t know till later this evening – stereo or mono audio for video? And it doesn’t look like it has the excellent front ring control of the S95.
