Questions & Answers for Nikon Inc. COOLPIX S9300

Question

Why is there water behind the lens from humidity?

My son on the east coast went to use his camera today and first the LCD wasn't working with what he described as water in it. And there is water behind the lens, too. This camera is only a few months old.
Humidity? Is it ruined? This shouldn't happen.

Question

Photo Rotation

Will the S9300 automatically rotate photos taken in the portrait orientation? My S9100 would rotate only photos taken when faces were detected but other shots were not so I had to rotate them manually. Could this feature be later added with a firmware update?

Question

Can it be compared with P7100

I want to change my camera Canon IXUS 95 IS. I very much enjoy photos from P7100. Will S9300 make photos of the same quality? Mostly AUTO mode is used, but sometimes different settings are also used. I'm very interested in quality of photos at lamplight and in nighttime without using flash. Thank you

With the COOLPIX S9300 you can enjoy different scene modes like Night Portrait. However, in the COOLPIX P7100 you will find Night Landscape, and Night Portrait, plus you can control the settings by choosing Program, Aperture or Shutter priority or Manual Mode.

With the S9300, the maximum movie length for a single movie is 4 GB or 29 minutes, even when there is sufficient free space on the memory card. The maximum movie recording time for a single movie is
displayed on the monitor during recording.

Question

How do you make the GPS logging function consistently work?

I use the camera’s GPS log function to record hikes I make. It works perfectly. It does everything I need it to do. However, I cannot get it to consistently work. Sometimes the GPS log is only 4 kb, and only contains the GPS header info. The instruction manual has a very simple process for creating a log file. Maybe it is too simple

I try very had to set the camera up exactly the same way each time I use it, and sometimes its works, and sometimes it doesn’t. The camera is receiving GPS data because each photo has GPS data attached to it. It would be nice if there was a way to confirm the log function was working...

NOTE: I do download a new updates GPS A-file from the internet regularly. The manual says it updates faster with the updated GPS A-file, it should say it only works with an updated file.

Since I have not received any answers to this question, I will provide some updates on ways I have found to increase the reliability.

1. Download and install the GPS "A" file just before you do any critical GPS work. Without a very current GPS "A" file the camera takes forever to acquire GPS signals.

2. Start the GPS log function by deleting all GPS Logs. When you start the log it should offer you a choice of 6-12 or 24 hours. If it just starts the log; delete that log and start over. After you start the log; look carefully at the display. On the screen, there should be an icon for a satellite, the bar beside the satellite that represents the number of GPS satellites in view, - and the letters "LOC"

3. Take a picture. Turn the camera off. Turn the camera back on, -and verify the LOC icon is still there.

Check and verify the LOC icon for the 1st 5-10 minutes. Sometimes, it simply goes away for some unknown reason. Once the LOC icon remains there for over 5 minutes, I have never had it go away. If it does go away, go through all the steps to get it back.

4. Updating the GPS "A" file can be a bit tricky until go get the hang of it. Be sure the file you transfer to the NCFL folder on your memory card is NCS_07Aee. If you leave a previously downloaded"A" file on you computer; you operating system may rename the new download to something like NCS-07Aee(1).. The camera will ONLY recognize the file name NCS_07Aee

After you install the new GPS "A" file on your memory card, ask the software to update it. The software will tell you not to remove the memory card from the camera. That is usually the only message you will ever get. Wait 10-15 minutes for the camera to shut down. Turn on the camera and go to the Update GPS menu and see if the new current date is there. Once out of a dozen updates, I got a message saying update was successful. They all were successful ( at least those with the correct file name), but the camera never tells you so.

I do not know if you need a view of GPS satellites for the GPS "A" file update function to work. I assume you do not, but I put the camera at a window, - just in case.

When it works, it provides great data. Using the GPS Log and the mapping software, you can create some great pictures.

I hope some of this helps. I also hope Nikon fixes some of the bugs in this product...
