  • When shopping around you can find the S9200 for £245, but retailers such as Curry's are charging £270. This makes it more expensive than the S9300 which you can get from Warehouse Express for £260, which has GPS. Thankfully, the S9200 takes pictures with good detail and colour reproduction and can shoot full resolution images at a fast rate, although noise is a problem from ISO 400 upwards. If the S9200 was cheaper, we'd be happy to recommend it, but for the price, you might as well look at the S9300.


  • The Nikon Coolpix S9200 is a versatile compact that's pleasant and easy to use. However, picture quality isn't always on par with certain similarly priced competitors, such as the Canon SX240 and Panasonic TZ25.


  • The Sony Cybershot DSC W630 may not be perfect when it comes to picture quality, but it does pack in enough features to make it worth a closer look. It scores highly for ease of use and features such as 360 panoramas and High Definition movies may make this camera an interesting option for you.


  • The Canon PowerShot A3400 IS may seem like a touch-screen bargain, but its overall poor performance makes it a tough sell - even at $180.

    Smartphones are the new snapshot cameras for most people, but some folks still prefer a standalone point-and-shoot camera (they tend to occupy an older demographic). Canon still sees some value in offering those potential buyers plenty of affordable, easy-to-use options, including a model the PowerShot A3400 IS - one of a half-dozen new entry-level cameras this year.


  • At just £120, the Canon PowerShot A3400 IS is a great little camera. There are areas that could be better such as the battery door and small zoom but there are reasons for it and to keep the price low, there has to be some sacrifices somewhere. This is a nice little compact to hide away in a pocket while you go for a day out or on holiday. It goes unnoticed until it's needed and takes cracking pictures when it's needed.


  • While not without its share of photo and performance issues, the GE E1410SW is a fine ultracompact megazoom snapshooter for those on a budget.


  • The $160 General Electric E1410SW packs an impressive 10x zoom lens and is capable of capturing some nice photos at lower ISO settings. But this unbeatable bargain comes with some compromises.


  • The best way to purchase the E1410SW is therefore with a discount. At $160 this camera is competitive in price, but not in performance. Should you stumble across a deal of some kind, something that involves buying the camera for, say, less than $100, that will be a good value. Otherwise there are just too many other options out there.


  • The Coolpix S3300 isn't a great camera, even for only $140. The cheap lens produces some of the most distracting chromatic aberration we've seen, and overall resolution is poor as a result. Shot to shot speed is also quite slow, ruling out action or sports photography, and noise reduction is highly destructive above the minimum ISO. We will admit this camera does have a few advantages. The slim, flat design fits very easily into the pocket, even more so than most compacts.


  • If you're looking for a camera to aid you in your photography and accelerate your learning of the art then this isn't it. While it offers a few effects and over-rides, they're sparse in order to keep costs down. The Nikon Coolpix S3300 is a simple machine designed to record moments in time. If that's what you want a camera for then it will do you proud.


  • Having been impressed with previous models (S3000 and S3100) we were looking forward to seeing how the S3300 would perform. Sadly we feel a bit let down. The S3300 continues to offer good colour reproduction in a compact body available in a range of colours. Sadly, image quality is poor, particularly if you are shooting at ISO 200 and above, although if you only take pictures to share on social networking sites you shouldn't have too much to be concerned about.
