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.

See more of it including an animation of this star stacking AND one angry hooded crow that really wanted to take out my drone! http://photorec.tv/croatia Captured with the #GH5 and 12-60 f/2.8-4 Lens | 41 exposures of 60 seconds in length - done in camera - the GH5 allows up to 60 second shutter speeds. Nifty!
