I picked up this Nikon Coolpix P300 in late 2011.  My previous camera, the Panasonic had an annoying scratch on the lens and although a wonderful little camera, every image was a bit fuzzy... So after doing my research on the internet, I bought this Coolpix.  I didn't take a lot of photos with this camera, maybe a grand sum of around 360. I took it to Dinsey World, and carried it my car for a bit. It is a smiple point and shoot and I was able to produce some decent photos. But really, I don't remeber much about it. But I do remember that I was frustrated that I couldn't get this camera to take photos liked I wanted. I was getting a serious itch forsomething more. I still have it and it still works. I took it out a couple of moths ago. Honestly though, the quality of the images are not much better than my cell phone camera. 

Camera Review:  Easy to use, small, and snappy. This is truly a pocket camera.  Images were sufficient. For the time, it did better in low light than most other point and shoot cameras. However, it does not shoot RAW, jpg only. Other than that, I don't remember much.
