Nikon P300 2

The P300 can produce bold, vibrant colours and plenty of contrast

Nikon P300 3

The 4.2x optical zoom lens produces sharp images too

Nikon P300 4

Although sadly the f/1.8 setting doesn't produce any bokeh-like blur

Nikon P300 4

Try as we might, we just couldn't make the background an indiscriminate blur

Nikon P300

For a compact camera, detail is well resolved throughout the frame

Nikon P300 3

The P300 lends itself well to street photography

Nikon P300 1

Although it can also produce colourful still-life images

Nikon P300

It's really easy to get good results with the 180-degree 'Easy' Panorama feature

Nikon P300 3

Although you do need to take care not to over-egg the HDR settings

Audley, Not sure why you haven't mentioned the Sony DSC-HX9V as a main competitor to this camera. Any reason why ?

Hi Lyndon, the main reason I didn't mention the HX9V as a direct competitor is that I'd consider it to be more of a travel compact than a premium compact, and I'd therefore be more inclined to group it in the company of the Panasonic Lumix FT3, Nikon S9100, Canon SX220 HS and suchlike. Also, the HX9V lacks the full compliment of PASM shooting controls. It's still a great camera though. Hope that helps.
