I just got back home after buying a new camera, the Nikon Coolpix P300. I’ve been wanting a compact camera with almost SLR-like capabilities and have been eyeing the Canon S95 for the longest time.. until I saw the P300 a few weeks ago. It has everything I need in a camera, with Full HD video recording. I get really lazy lugging around the DSLR and wanted to find an alternative. I don’t mind not having RAW because the SLR does that and this price tag fit just right in my budget as opposed to the S95 or the upcoming S100 (before going extremely broke). I’ve also been wanting to find a good compact camera to bring to a concert next month, a concert that doesn’t allow and professional cameras whatsoever.
While in the car on the way home I did some random shots and tested its low light capabilities and boy was I impressed. My previous camera, the Canon IXUS 80 sucked so bad when it came to low light situations that’s why this one pretty much wow-ed me. No flash was used at all and these photos are not edited in any way. I can’t wait to be able to use it in full force!
